Can only be student's turning up surely?  Doesn't fit with any pattern with other pure blue traditional tory seats.

Yeah, Tories didn't count on the young people showing up.

Turns out they care about Brexit after all.

Are Tory seats really slow counters or something? Labour have been ahead all night yet tories forecast more.

Obviously not all but I do believe they are where students of University of Warwick and Kent are based. Tuition fees policy has definitely cut through as a policy.

I agree with doing away with tuition fees but by cutting university places back to the what we had in the 70's.

SNP claims to have won the election in Scotland are grating on me.  There is no winning when Scotland has propped up a Tory minority govt.

I think there is only so much they can take.  Soaring house prices which make it impossible to buy a starter home even on a decent grad salary, student fees/grants etc, cost of living, minimum wage etc etc.  Social media engaging with them over the issues and tempting them into voting/discussing it with friends more and more.  Sooner or later they were going to really get stuck into politics and today was the day.  Don't even think Brexit would have been that big a deal tbh in the grand scheme of things to youngsters.

It doesn't make sense.

Scotland voted massively for Remain.

How do the Tories do so well there?

In-fighting left the door open. Sturgeon's anti Tory campaign grew weary. Lib Dem's leaflets were all don't vote SNP. It was all a bit grim.

Not true.  There were many many people who voted leave that will not have voted Tory.
