Is Tory the new cool?
How has the Tory party - an object of ridicule for nearly a decade - managed the resurrection of its student aged activists? It is worth remembering, young people in their early 20s now are too young to remember anything other than Blair's Britain. They can't recall the sleaze during the dying days of the Major years, and they couldn't care much about it anyway. Forget double-barrelled surnames, trust funds, and clipped voices: could being a young Tory even be a kind of rebellion?
