Figure Crunching

Number of apprenticeships to be created by 2014 according to Vince “Janus” Cable: 100,000

Number of young people currently unemployed in the UK and the worst figures since records began: 953,000 (20% of 16-24 year olds).

Nice one, Vince. Only 850,000 to go.

It is a shame you’ve trebled tuition fees and scrapped the EMA so that these youngsters will find it so much more difficult to increase their chances of finding work through improved qualifications.

But fear not. They could always work for free as IDS wants.

We wonder if IDS and Vince willl be doing the same in solidarity with the young. Doubtful.

Do as they say, not as they do?
