The youth unemployment rate (16-24) is about 20-25%. There are about to be 10,000 more kids on the dole - the Universities Minister has reduced next year's total entrance by that sum. It won't be much fun on the dole either - benefits cut, under-35's will only be allowed to claim for a single room in a shared house, prices up… all this from the man who wrote The Pinch: How the Baby Boomers Stole Their Children's Future.
Clearly it wasn't a jeremiad: it was a How-To.
Tory scum. Merry Christmas, no-longer potential students.
