“But when our plans are published in the coming months, people will see that Labour will not support cuts in vital frontline services on which people depend. Labour will not put the recovery at risk, protect and improve your frontline services first and make the right choices for low and middle income families in the country.”
Back in January, Brown said: “Now more than ever is the time to invest in our young people, their skills and their talents in training them for the future.” What a pity Brown could not be sincere in his actions because, as the Spectator disclosed recently, those under the age of 25 have been hit hardest by the recession. Endangering their future heightens the risk of long-term joblessness. Labour’s legacy to the recession generation is vast personal debt accrued at university, an impossible employment market and this blatant hypocrisy, which takes voters for fools and manipulates the hopes of the young for the sake of a conceit concerning frontline services. There is no reason for anyone under 25 to vote Labour.
