Stop the vilification of Britain’s youth

Daily Echo: Stop the vilification of Britain’s youth Stop the vilification of Britain’s youth

SURELY I am not alone in my outrage at the insensitivity of the national media’s obsessive attempts to vilify British youngsters, with the seemingly unending stream of stories of employers advertising a vacancy, getting little response from the “workshy” British youth but a long queue of eastern Europeans.

Would not such a comment be condemned as racistÿ if it were the other way around?

Furthermore, are the authors of such articles deliberately kicking our children and grandchildren when they are down, or do they not realise that £6.35 per hour is worth precisely that to an indigenous youth, whereas to a migrant worker the same sum has a purchasing power of £40 at least when spent in their home country.

Add to that a couple of kids on child benefit, multiply that payment by seven and a migrant labourer has a disposable income in his home country that would be the envy of a British teacher or solicitor.

Well there we have it, the European dream of “freedom of movement”ÿ as supported by, amongst others, the Liberal Democrats.

With about a million British youngsters out of work, and a survey by The Prince’s Trust revealing that three quarters of a million of them “have nothing to live for” and that one third “have contemplated suicide”, the future looks bright! Thankfully us parents and grandparents will have a chance to vote on the “European dream”ÿ at the forthcoming European elections in May.

I think you know what you have to do. There is one party which has refused to take payments levied on you by the EU. That party is UKIP!

From under what rock are all these UKIP nincompoops crawling lately. How can anyone have the gaul to start spouting sensationalist nonsense like this and using a political party whose leader has just abandoned their complete manifesto as a backdrop.
Adolf Hitler used to have views like this
"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise".

That is all it is propaganda, nobody's life is being affected by immigration, not even yours, if anything it probably makes it better. The next time you are in hospital have a look at the person who is treating you, you might be surprised.
I don't think it is wrong for young people to have bigger ambitions than working in Starbucks either.

Well lets' be honest there is a small percentage of young people who don't want to get jobs who prefer to stay on benefits its not the "eastern europeans" fault that they are willing to do any job no matter how bad to earn a wage, if they wanna work hard doing terrible jobs let em. We bred a whole generation of people who would rather live on benefits and be mollycoddled rather than do honest grafting thanks to the government handing out benefits like candy to any who ask

Going by the comments I hear daily it must be a bl00dy big rock, but then all those people are not political sheep. They are free thinkers not blinded by political bigotry, the clever trick will be to persuade the disadvantaged to get out and vote.
