Writing following the publication of CPS/YouGov polling showing almost half of 18 to 24-year olds say they wouldn’t consider voting Tory at the next general election, Davidson offers up lessons from recent Scottish Conservative gains in Westminster and Holyrood and suggests the party needs to offer “practical solutions” that meet peoples’ needs.

The YouGov polling was commissioned as part of the CPS essay collection, ‘New Blue: Ideas for a New Generation’.
