Young hopes to determine british skæbnevalg

"A man who is so privileged, that it literally shines out of the arse of him. The young people are just so tired of it," says Jack Boyd, who works in a student union.

Up to Thursday's elections have millions of young britons have registered themselves to vote, especially because of calls from well-known on social media.

And, like Jack Boyd supports the vast majority of voters between 18-35 years of age, the parties that are against Brexit.

It is just one of several factors that, according to professor James Ker-Lindsay makes today's choice is impossible to foresee. A second factor is the date of the election. Not since 1923 has there been a julevalg.

"We are voting not usually in december, because we know that the weather can affect how many people go out and vote. In particular, the elderly are more likely to be at home," explains James Ker-Lindsay from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Boris Johnson and his conservative party have long had a steady lead in the polls, but the campaign atmosphere spurt his lead started to collapse.

The last few days, especially the two unfortunate tv appearances ridiculed the british leader.

In an interview, he refused for a long time to look at a picture of a little boy who, because of a lack of beds had to lie on a hospitalsgulv in the city of Leeds.

the video Clip went viral, and the opposition Labour was quickly ready to exploit the situation.

"He just don't care," said the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Johnson.

the Episode fit perfectly into Labour's election campaign, there just trying to make cuts in the public health service to the main theme.

the Interview with Boris Johnson was made by the tv station ITV, there is also the Wednesday morning, had the luck to interfere with Johnson's otherwise totally controlled and orchestrated campaign with short, clear messages.

Boris Johnson was early in the morning to visit a dairy, where he carried milk crates with its slogan 'Get Brexit done' out in a van. The metaphor was clear: Johnson is able to provide a Brexit.

But pressestrategien was interrupted when a reporter from ITV asked if he was ready for a live interview in the station's morgenprogram.

In the studio sat morgenværterne and followed the sent reporters to the stubborn attempts. But Johnson was clearly not interested and went back into a cold room.

"He has gone into a refrigerator!" it said merrily from the hosts.

Boris Johnson continued unabated its campaign, and promised in his speeches to the voters 'a golden future'. If it goes as the polls predict - a small majority to the Conservatives - will Johnson pull the Uk out of the EU no later than 31. January.

But opinion polls in the past have been misleading at the british general election, and according to professor James Ker-Lindsay there is not much for Conservatives to miss a majority.

"So are we going to see a paralyzed parliament, where no party has majority," he explains.

the 21-year-old Jack Boyd will Thursday make his small part to prevent a majority for the Conservatives.

He believes that the idea of Brexit - the idea that the Uk can achieve its former glory by opting out of the EU is a fantasy that the right wing sold to the older generations.

"We young people are the best-educated generation ever. So of course we have the skill to figure out here is that it is purely nonsense."
