    David Cameron is on Tinder. Seriously. The Prime Minister is actually on Tinder.

    OK. Slow down. Panic not. This isn’t another chapter to the Ashley Madison saga, instead, this is David Cameron’s way of getting down with the kids and trying to engage Tinder’s 5 million plus users to vote in the EU referendum.  

    With the deadline to register to vote less than a month away (June 7), David Cameron has enlisted the help of the dating app giant to create an advert that resembles an actual profile on Tinder. So you know, if you come across his ‘profile’ and he swipes right for you, you could get some Tinder time in with the PM. Or his press office. Either works for us.

    Is this the worst Tinder date ever?

    According to The Telegraph, young people are less likely to vote than the general population, but are more likely to be pro-EU, which explains why David Cameron has targeted websites including Facebook, Twitter, Google and BuzzFeed and invited these social bigwigs to Downing Street last Friday to discuss new ways to get young people voting.

    The vote on whether or not we stay in the European Union will take place on June 23, and if you’re still unclear on what you’re actually voting for, or whether to even bother registering, remember David Cameron is on Tinder and he’s ready to mingle. Kind of.
