Interesting as it was, your article on the youth culture report omitted two of the largest groups of teenager.
First, the chavs. Alienated, apathetic losers in shabby, baggy clothes, they hide in their hoodies or under their baseball caps, listen to any music that's free, paint their tags anywhere, steal from shops, dodge their fares and will never vote because they don't see the point. No teenager will ever admit to being a chav.
Secondly, the CTBs. Confined To Bedrooms by parents paranoid about stranger danger, chained to the implacable demands of coursework, their PCs constantly net-nannied. Despite having benefited from a level of monitoring, assessment, target-setting and performance management which would gladden Tony's heart, upon reaching 18 the ingrates will vote Conservative, UKIP or BNP, in a vain bid for what they imagine will be freedom. They never feature in surveys.
