Labour have recently announced their answer to youth unemployment, but the numbers are just not behind the headlines.
All policies cost money, and this is to be funded by… you guessed it, an attack on banks and bankers. It’s interesting to note the amount of times Labour have spent this money, again and again. You would think that recent financial times may have taught the party that refinancing the same money over and over may be a bad plan, but perhaps that’s why people do not trust Labour with the economy.
But apart from the income not existing, it’s WORSE than the coalition government is doing at the moment!
A full summary is at http://www.scribd.com/doc/85652418/Coalition-Youth-Contract-compared-to-Labour-s-Real-Jobs-Guarantee-Mar-2012, but in summary the government are spending more than Labour and will be available earlier (after 9 months rather than 12).
But let’s not let facts stand in the way of a good headline, hey?
