"Of the new members, one third are under the age of 30..."

 Tom Quinn (Senior Lecturer, Department of Government at University of Essex) writes for The Conversation about the Corbyn phenomenon:  https://theconversation.com/well-labour-this-is-what-happens-when-you-crowdsource-a-leadership-election-45177

Note the line:  "Of the new members, one third are under the age of 30 and their most common age is 18. Young people can become full members for just £1 per month or simply pay £3 to become registered supporters."

These are the idealists who will become active.  This is the way you win elections.I would like to see the Conservatives match this recruitment of young people.
