Turning Point is a right-wing youth movement. It aims to prove that young people love the economic system which will see them have less wealth and opportunity than their parents.

But… err… do they actually love it?

An Off The Perch investigation revealed something shocking.

Quelle surprise

One of our journalists visited the Turning Point UK offices undercover. We expected to meet a group of affluent, young rich people with a passion for holding the rest of their generation back. All was not as it seems, however.

“Cowabunga, dudes,” the ‘youngster’ greeting us said.

The man in question wore shorts and had a backwards baseball cap on.

“Excuse me, but aren’t you Jacob Rees-Mogg of the Conservative Party?” our journalist asked.

“That’s a bogus accusation,” Rees-Mogg responded. “I’m just an everyday British teen who loves capitalism and chill.”

“Umm…” our reporter said – not buying it.

Hip trick

“Let me put this in terms you’ll find more on fleek,” Rees-Mogg continued. “Socialism is like the bad guy in the Harry Potter books, and conservatism is like the good guy – whatever his name was. I think it was Ron Jeremy or something.”

We pointed out that the good guy in Harry Potter was called Harry Potter.

“Totally,” Rees-Mogg agreed.

He then attempted to do a kick flip on his skateboard – a move which saw him shatter every bone in his leg.

“I told you… that would be… hip…” he moaned, as the paramedics carried him away.

Dad jokes aside, Turning Point UK is offering young people something that no one else is. No one except the government and its corporate backers, obviously.
