'Put focus on unemployment!'

UNEMPLOYMENT: Soaring

LAST WEEK marked a milestone in the ever soaring rate of youth unemployment.

There are now over one million young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are unemployed – a 17 year high.

The general unemployment rate also rose to a phenomenal record high, 8.4 percent.

In the meantime, Prime Minister Cameron regales us all with public relations puff tales of his date nights with Mrs Cameron. Like we care.

Hands up all who can afford to go out weekly to lavish restaurants. And hands up those whose fridges are almost bare, can’t afford your rent or mortgage. Keep them up if you lost your job recently.

I wish Cameron would stop parading and come up with some sensible polices that will get people back to work. Date night, my eye.
