Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party seems to be staying loyal to its young voters – as on top of promising to abolish tuition fees, it wants to sweeten the deal as it is currently looking at ways to reduce student debt for those who were charged fees and now have mountains of debt.
This policy might prove more popular than abolishing tuition fees as all Graduates who have student debt are of voting age – while most prospective university students are below the voting age of 18. Not to mention that a lot of parents would perhaps like to see their kids debt decreased significantly, rather than them paying absurd amount of money to the student loans company for something that should be free.
We’ll have to wait and see how this policy idea develops – but it would certainly help the momentum the Labour Party has with engaging with young voters, a big factor in helping Labour wipe out the Tory majority.
