The UK elections produced some good satire (The Book of Jeremy Corbyn was one of my favourites, c/o The New Yorker, and not a bad exec sum of the election campaign) and a lot of graphs. These were two of the most interesting – this election (and perhaps future ones) was about age more than class. The class graph is actual, the age one is voting intention pre-election – anyone seen an actual? Click to enlarge.
