Happy May Day!

On international workers’ day it is important for all young people to be aware, both of their rights and the past struggles that were waged to achieve them. While an increase in voter registration for under 25 year olds is to be welcomed, it is largely attributed to the ‘Clegg-factor’. However, on the same televised debate that produced a boost in the polls for the liberal democrats, a question was asked concerning burglaries. The response from all three leaders focused on problems associated with the youth. This not only underlines the perception of young people today, it also indicates that future austerity measures will constitute an attack on Britain’s youth.
