The only thing Tories are interested in is forcing the young to work for free in nasty programs like workfare. The best advice any body could give a young person is get the hell out of Britain and live somewhere better!!.

Absolutely correct Carl66, we emigrated 8 years ago now and despite wanting to return at times, I am glad we have stuck it out! The UK was going down the dunny back then and I am guessing it is way past the u-bend and off to the sea by now eh! emigrating is not easy but if you want better opportunities for your family and yourself then I guess we did the right thing. As far as I can tell the PC brigade now have complete social control and the economy is a distant memory! I feel for the good people who are not able to get out, but unless something is done and bloody soon you can kiss goodbye to any semblance of hope! good luck matey!
