Activate deactivated: Conservatives’ Momentum imitation folds after 8 months
From The London Economic: Activate, the Conservatives’ imitation of Momentum, has folded after just eight months.
The political movement was set up to engage young people in centre-right politics but has struggled to make any headway since it was launched in August last year.
Many have argued that the group was doomed from the start having been set the impossible mission of becoming the vehicle for a conservative mass movement that never existed.
A visit to the Activate website returns a ‘404’ error – while the group’s Twitter account now shows only a single tweet under a revised name of “The artist formerly known as Activate”.
