Labour’s candidate for the General Election in Lichfield and Burntwood believes his party’s policies will win over younger voters.
Chris Worsey’s comments come after a hustings event at South Staffordshire College.
Labour has outlined plans to woo younger voters, including introducing a living wage of £10 an hour, banning unpaid internships and scrapping tuition fees. Other proposals include reinstating EMAs and student grants.
Mr Worsey said: “It was an absolute pleasure to attend the hustings event and I’d like to thank the college for inviting me.
“The students were engaged, smart and confident. They reacted really well to the Labour message and I’d like to thank the group who serenaded me with a rendition of ‘Oooh Jeremy Corbyn’ as I left!
“People aged 18 to 24 are absolutely key to this election. If they turn out in numbers Labour could have a real shot at winning.
“I think Labour’s policies are really resonating with young people at this election.
“Young people are our future and I’m really proud of our policy offer to them.”
