Memo to the ALP: beware the wrath of disgruntled youth. Faced with a resurgent Coalition under the newly elected Malcolm Turnbull, the ALP must win over young voters, or perish at the next election.
Not since Kevin Rudd’s vain efforts at selfie-taking has the ALP even superficially considered the importance of engagement with young people. But faced with Malcolm Turnbull, a social-media aficionado brimming with charisma and “cool new-age dad” appeal, the ALP must win the Twitter war and inspire the young progressives who swept them to victory in the Kevin 07 campaign.
