They ARE engaged

I was not canvassing for the Conservatives yesterday.

I had lent my support, with the agreement of Alec Nussbaum, to another party.

What surprised me was the response in a council estate.

Young lads in their early twenties, normally uninterested in politics, were stopping us and asking for details and wanting boards. 

In the street (coming back from a football game), on the doorstep (window poster in the window torn from a wraparound cover for the local newspaper), in a mini screeching to a halt in the road so they could talk to us.

This is the demographic that everyone (in the metropolitan elite) says needs to be more engaged in politics.

They ARE engaged in this election, but the media is not reporting this (perhaps because they are engaged in supporting the wrong party).
