There are only 15 days until we go to the polls
“How do you do, fellow kids?” Like the cringy Steve Buscemi meme – in which the star carries a skateboard and wears a backwards baseball cap – Michael Gove and other leading Conservatives have been using Jamaican patois online in a bid to appear hip, clever and funny.

A spectacular, unprecedented surge saw more than 450,000 people under the age of 35 register to vote on the final day of applications. Could this be the youthquake Jeremy Corbyn – who the kids used to call “the absolute boy” – so badly needs after his bruising encounter with Andrew Neil? I’m Adam Forrest, and welcome to The Independent’s daily Inside Politics briefing.
