    Cameron: "Cuts will change our way of life"

    I really don't know, for 16-17 year olds it's £3.68, for me that's cheap labour and I can see why some opt for the dole (plus community charge, housing and other benefits). To get these people into work I'd rather use the tax system to make it a more attractive proposition for employer/employee than open up the possibility of teens being exploited for cheap labour and left disillusioned.

    Cameron: "Cuts will change our way of life"

    So we lower the minimum wage, how can narrowing the gap between work and the dole encourage people to work? Why not scrap income tax for those in the 16-21 bracket. Can't help but feel you're approach to issues is again punitive Stronts rather than incentivising low earners.

    Revive the YTS as a cynical attempt to massage youth unemployment.

    Tony Blair

    I accept that you believe that, that the Libs pushing Blair and Cameron isn't out of self-interest but is 'in all our interests' (even tho we've rejected it at a referendum). That's how people like you work! Your ego is so out of whack that it will do whatever it can to protect itself. And people with a messed up ego can do these mental gymnastics to convince themselves they're awesome, when really, they're just douchebags!

    Wasn't PR rejected by Lloyd George, and only adopted by the Libs in self-interest?

    Tony Blair

    Had he bowed out prior to Iraq his popularity would probably be quite something for a PM.

    Your Favourite Albums of 2011

    Not heard much that isn't a band looking backwards for influence, and this 80s-soundinng electropop really pisses me off. Was disposable crap the first time round.

    R.E.M.

    Jeez, can recall buying the IRS tapes in the 80s. Always loved 'Fall on Me'. They shoulda stopped when Bill Berry left.

    Strange then that Cleggy predicted riots if a weak (and he and Cameron are an effing joke) government slashed services.

    Deprivation

    I did too as I was promised in the 2nd year I could start an engineering apprenticeship. But they fucked me off after 12 months and employed another YTS school-leaver. I can understand them taking advantage but it left me fuming and disillusioned.

    How do we pay for National Service when there's a cut in the defence budget?

    Deprivation

    No. I think when I was 16 the YTS was £28pw, dole was £45 a fortnight. Twas slave labour more or less.

    Probably cause the rioters to get firearms too. The situation needs fucking defusing not ramping up.

    Deprivation

    Grew up in the 80s YTS era. Jobs were scarce as unemployment was running very high and I did spend a few months on the dole. Country was fairly broken as the miners strike was underway and the inner-cities weren't places you'd want to live. The big difference would be that the dole money (no tax credits or income support) was so low you had to find something, even if it was cash in hand. This week still comes as no surprise.
