Betrayal of a Generation



One Million 18-24 Year Olds have no job or prospect of training, Labour and the Tories have created a new 'lost' generation.

Thomas Burridge PPC LPUK Norwich North

We have the obscenity of companies, being forced to pay employers National Insurance ,over ten per cent of the employees gross salary, therefore a tax on employment, then the disincentive of paying corporation tax,also operating as unpaid tax collectors with VAT, NI, and PAYE.

Before the welfare state most people were trained as apprentices or trainees in SME's or large enterprises. Getting an apprenticeship or a training post with a reputable local firm was an ambition.

Yet again the Government thought it could do better, thanks to Tories and Labour alike, appenticeships died the death as a form of training, in favour of training my civil servant training quango's which seem on to employ yet more public servants and not turn out commercially viable skilled people.

The State would prefer to finance lager swilling tattooed covered anti social young people through the dole/jobseekers allowance.

Stop this travesty now !

Stop jobseekers for under the under twenty four year olds, it just creating a depressing mind set of dependancy.

For Apprentices and Trainees in Industry, no Employers NI, and each company can off set apprentice/trainee salaries,training costs and tools, against Corpration Tax, VAT payments etc- lets just cut the middle man, the Quangos and Government out of the Equation.

The Young are the future, we have already saddled them with decades of Debt thanks to Brown. Let's give them the skills to at least pay it back.

If the LPUK was in power, this sort of economic decision would be devolved to County level not the deadbeats in Whitehall.


OH UPDATE: It appears people wish to contribute to the fighting fund. You can do so here

Not very bright, is he. These 18 year olds were in their first school year in 1997.

He is scarily bright

Quite simple and logical and impossible to apply given the political nomenklatura which rules this country.

Poland and Germany still have strong trades schools, apprenticeships and good tradesmen. We have chavs.

A politician talking sense? He must have applied for the wrong job.
Never mind, hes not Con, Lab or Lib so will only ever see the inside of the Commons from the public gallery.

To obtain an apprenticeship in Germany is an honour, a cause for family celebration. Your future is secure, you will have a trade for life and always be able to put bread on the table for your family. It is coveted.

Here? The latest Nike trainers and some bling from Cash Converters will see you shacked up with the local slag, rent free and able to concentrate fully on growing and selling weed.

Shameless is a documentary.

And even those of us in other parties who sympathize can at least donate something to the campign I presume - even though we may not be ready to join you yet?

Although this reads like it was written by one of the illiterate twats now leaving education, I concur.

Anon 13:54, Good question.

How do people like myself, who don't really want to join any Political Party at this present juncture (and don't live anywhere near Norwich) contribute financially to the Libertarian campaign?

BTS said...

At least growing and selling weed indicates some sense of initiative..

So long as they remember the old adage 'Don't get high on your own supply'..

Earthlet Nigel said...

I certainly wouldn't currently devolve it upon the present council incumbents, many of whom are delusional, and with aspirations far exceeding their abilities.

Guthrum said...

Although this reads like it was written by one of the illiterate twats now leaving education, I concur.

I will leave the two degrees obtained thirty years ago as I go through the door! Agree needs to be put in better English etc, multi tasking is a bugger.

Guthrum said...

Cheers for the donate button

Dazed and Confused said...

Donation given!

Consider it a payment for a brilliant blog.

I can relate to this item because I have a nephew who falls into this category. it is so depressing to see him decline from an energetic and enthusiastic youth into someone who looks as though they've had the fight knocked out of them. I hate labour for what they've done to our young men. And i don't see any light on the horizon that will make a difference.

I hope the young do remeber this , labour are a unatural party of unatural social order , tarted up as a wonk class divisions and politics of envy .

The British like cheap labour and tatty goods, investing in the next generation is expensive, far easier to import your tradesmen and labourers.

They could'nt give a fuck about youngsters, just blame them for all our ill's THATS the British way.

Anonymous said...

I know. Lets make it even harder for the young shits, by raising the retirement age. Good idea?

Destroying the life chances of young white Englishmen is Labour's main objective and they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.50 years ago most places at the best universities were taken by working class grammar school boys, - that's why they had to be closed down.The problem for labour is that educated people don't believe the drivel they preach, so better to keep everyone ignorant.

12Years ago a policeman from Salford said to me that where he grew up in a rough area of salford there were many kids leaving school who could not read and write but them kids would go into the big factories and mills and sweep floors/labour on the skilled men etc now all those factories have gone the mills have gone so all those kids without education have no where to go no way of earning a living there is no fall back for people now .he was right !
