The nascent Conservative movement is modelling itself on Momentum and targeting young voters. But with no one to rally behind, it’s dead in the water. Just as 60 may be the new 20, and Saga Holidays the new Love Island, this week in politics, Activate is the new Momentum. For those blessed readers who have no idea what I’m talking about, Activate is the latest great idea designed to energise the Tory grassroots, based on the Labour-affiliated movement formed in the wake of Jeremy Cobyn’s election as leader of his party. Launched yesterday with a Return of the Jedi-themed meme attacking Corbyn (now deleted from Twitter), Activate is a campaign organisation that promises to galvanise Tory youth support, and build a community of young centre-right campaigners. Good luck with that. The Conservatives were 47 percentage points behind Labour among 18- and 19-year-olds at the last election.feedback

The Conservatives’ core beliefs were always centred on stability. Now, like addicts, they must admit they have a problem• Kate Maltby is an associate fellow of conservative thinktank Bright Blue. Seventy-odd years ago my grandparents arrived in this country from Hungary. Over the next two decades, more relatives joined them, refugees by turns from fascist genocide, Soviet totalitarianism and economic collapse. My grandparents arrived penniless, started a small family business and voted Tory. Only a Conservative government, they told me, would stand firm against the radicalism that had fuelled the European conflict. They may as well have pinned “strong and stable” to my nappy.feedback

May has benefited from Corbyn’s flaws, but out on the doorsteps the Tory brand is still toxic. What happened to the positive vision in their manifesto?We are one day away from polling day. Theresa May called this snap election to capitalise on the lead of 24-point that some polls gave her, and crush Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party. Now, that lead has declined to the point where one poll even predicts a hung parliament. Why?feedback

With the ‘unholy chaos’ of a snap election the new Tory MPs will be a mixed bunch: some will be May’s mates, others will be answerable to the Tory shires. Everyone has a pet theory about why Theresa May called this election. Yet such is the sphinx-like inscrutability of our prime minister that few really have a clue. Any pundit who tells you they know for certain is lying.feedback
