ConDems Hammer The youth

The ConDems are really hammering the youth of this once great country, with their ‘slash and burn’ attitude. They cut University funding and increased tuition fees astronomically, a programme brought in by Vince Cable, against his better judgement. He originally advocated the Graduate Tax, which Labour and Nick Clegg thought was the right way to go, but David Cameron slapped them all down publicly, and insisted that the LibDems should do as they were told, and promote the higher tuition fees. Both Vince Cable and Nick Clegg were not convinced they should vote for this bill to go through, but in the end they had to play the pipers tune.
Education Minister Leighton Andrews told the Institute of Welsh Affairs' conference in December that their future funding, including being allowed to charge higher tuition fees, would depend on a willingness to "progress swiftly to merger and reconfiguration". In response to this threat The Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) said the current 11 institutions should be reduced to make the sector sustainable. It said there should be no more than 6 Universities in Wales. England could be next.
The ConDems have now announced the cutting of the Higher Education funding [6th forms and colleges], this comes after the cutting of the E.M.A. [Education Maintenance Allowance]
A committee of MPs has warned the government that ending the Future Jobs Fund early risks leaving youths in long-term unemployment, Gordon Brown called it an act of "economic vandalism”. He also wrote in the daily Mirror: "We are still paying the price for the lost generation of wasted lives of the 1980s. Now we have a new social time bomb in the making."The Future Jobs Fund was created by the Labour Government in response to rising youth unemployment at the time of the credit crisis. It funded temporary employment for 18-24 year olds who had been out of work for more than six months.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS), produced figures showing the net borrowing totalled £23.3bn last month, up from £17.4bn a year ago, and more than analysts had expected. The latest figures are likely to raise concerns about the government's efforts to reduce the UK budget deficit. The most recent official figures showed that the UK economy grew by 0.8% between July and September.
The CBI business group now expects growth of 0.2% in the first quarter of next year, down from 0.3%, as public sector job losses and higher-than-expected inflation slow the economic recovery. The British Chambers of Commerce now predicts the economy will expand 1.9% in 2011, down from the 2.2% growth it predicted in September. And the Office for Budget Responsibility has said it expects economic growth of 2.1% next year, compared with an earlier forecast of 2.3%.
With unemployment rising and inflation rising, it would appear that we can expect to be bumping along just a little above the official definition of recession, for some time.
Brian Wheeler, Political reporter for the BBC News, wrote a piece exploring the statement that Vince Cable made, comparing Britain’s coalition government to the brutal regime of former Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong. It makes fascinating reading, much in the same way a horror story does.
All I can say is “I am glad I am not a teenager any more”.
