Young People 'feel They Have Nothing To Live For'

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-25559089

As many as three quarters of a million young people in the UK may feel that they have nothing to live for, a study for the Prince's Trust charity claims.

The trust says almost a third of long-term unemployed young people have contemplated taking their own lives.

Urgent action must be taken to prevent the young jobless becoming the young hopeless, it says.

The government commented that it was doing "everything possible" to help young people find work.

Last month, figures from the Office for National Statistics showed the UK unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest level since 2009, with the number of people out of work falling by 99,000 to 2.39 million in the three months to October.

They have everything to live for as they've got to pay off the debt generated by everyone older than them who have a job. What selfish people these young are!

Farage said something about this the other day.

11 mins 11 seconds.

"i look around . an we've now got a million 16 to 24 year olds unemployed... and a lot of them look listless, a lot of them look like they've almost given up on life."

UKIP Are the only party that highlight the negative impact immigration has had on our youth, yet very few young people vote for them as their teachers and media sources all loath UKIP.

Openly supporting UKIP is difficult enough for a middle aged person, I can't imagine the flack a twenty year old would get...

Give them 1/2 acre of farmland and full permission to do what they like with it - you will see a change in perspective.

What you are seeing is the symptoms of a lack of land rights for young people.

....also you can go bankrupt owning thousands to other business (sometimes the knock on effect causing bankruptcy to well run prudent, trusting, businesses), property or owing money on a private plane....but you can't go bankrupt by the taking on of student debt trying to educate yourself. :blink:

that's only one of the spheres.

it's also about the deliberate dumbing down(and educational sabotage) of our young.

actually everybody.....think about it.

monstrous tuition fees

subjected to endless barrages of "re-runs/re-loads of very small type of bread & circus TV programmes

...even down to the decision to get rid of teletext.

this is quite frankly not natural wastage, this is deliberately accelerated "poison the wells and salt the fields" policy, to which the people responsible need to be held accountable.

we did not have any knowledge of saddam hussain or assad having control of our eduaction policy or media...so this goes much, much wider than a convenient witch-hunt by those the mainstream press and tv told you were witches and heretics.

yes, they are bad people, but we watch what lies beneath.(even to the extent of the marxist...if you want to quell a rebellion, control it mantra)

these guys are being watched like hawks.

Even if they do land a job the promotional opportunities won't to there due to boomer job blocking, it's all a bit pointless

....they can't retire because they still have a huge debt to pay, minuscule pension, children to support and the state retirement age is clocking up to date 70 years of age......anyway their job is their sole purpose in life, give that up and many would not know what to do with themselves, they would feel devalued a kind of spare part.....the same as what many of our young are feeling now, today. ;)

We can either solve this in a managed way now - or that generation will solve it with animus in 20 years.

Conditions here aren't nearly as bad as the conditions faced by 16-24 year olds in Ireland, or Spain, or Greece. But there's not much real evidence of incipient revolution in any of those places, so why do you think something drastic is on the cards for the UK?

Nobody has anything to live for. That's kinda the point of existence.

But in this specific case, if Prince Charles is so bothered about it why doesn't he donate the land he stole in the first place so that young people can build a home for themselves rather than sending his lad back to Uni to study land management with the specific objective of keeping the rest of the young population off it.

Time for Charles and his Dukes to give something back - their land would be a good start.

It will come in the form of a passive aggressive repatriation of assets from people 50+ including land tax, pension nationalisation, CGT on domestic property transactions etc.

At some point in next 20 years the voting power and media ownership becomes dominated by a generation that can, rightly, feel like they've been fleeced.

This is just Prince Charles trying to say things to get 20 somethings on his side for when he is eventually King.

He just wants to keep his power and prestige for the next 30 years. Although, that is one better than the leaders of the political parties, who just want power for the next 5-10 years.

I know a a quite pleasant chap in the old village I used to live at who you would class as the lovable rouge type, he split from his partner quite back and decided to half drop out of society even though he was quite a bright and could have done anything with his life.

After losing his house to the ex he seemed to have no fear of the possible consequences of his wild life, he was travelling all the time, he was playing some big poker games(the £250k plus prize money games as well as the big opens), constantly chasing women, loads of trips to London etc etc etc.

This was all paid with personal loans and credit cards and what he had left from his split. About two years ago he took his borrowing to about as far as the lenders would allow him, it could have been far earlier but thats when we got to hear about it, It turned out that he owed roughly £70,000 and did a deal, a full and final settlement agreement with the lenders for £14,000.

I could not make my mind up if I was really annoyed about this or I took my hat off to him for getting away with it and living life a little, suppose it was a bit of both.

The higher you are the harder you have to fall, or what you have never had you will never miss.....I suppose he fell from the pedestal once, then gave up caring, been there done it......It was the lenders that lent the money without collateral/security protection, their high risk that turned out not to be so high..... large amounts of unsecured lending is not so easy to come by today, maybe one of the reasons why property has been maintained at such a high level......who knows they may ask for stock, insurance and share certificates in future or lend to buy equities as well as housing? :unsure:

If you did, the Church would probably slap a Chancel Repair Liability on it.

Just another symptom of the older generations sucking the life and prospects from their own children.

Like rats eating their young when resources are scarce.

Prince Charles is an odd one, as a massive landowner and reperesentative of the value extracting class why should he bother now? Are the rumours of his stupidity true that he would highlight the plight if those whose misfortune he has an indirect hand in? Isn't he president of the national trust and mates with its current boss Simon 2 homes Jenkins?

I think you need to watch something other than the MSM

Farage comes across well in that interview.

Direct, sensible and responsible.

It makes a refreshing change from the various spokespeople of the (other) main parties who continually don't answer the question, give shifty answers, make false promises, divert, make stuff up, give false information, try to pretend they're following policies they aren't following to try to get more votes, continually repeat rehearsed and meaningless phrases from an archive of phrases, con with glib soundbites - etc. Edited by billybong

Precisely...

I am always amazed that they haven't clubbed together on their social networks --- and 4 million of them lie down on the roads all around the Bank of England - and DEMAND that the Banksters go to prison for a LONG time.... :rolleyes:

I went to Waitrose this am for some good chorizo.

A. I couldn't believe how expensive stuff had got.

B. It was wall to wall with sharp elbowed boomers.

The same chorizo up the road in lidyl for a fraction of the price....Waitrose are good for some things, not everything, luxury, labour saving convenience food and a place that offers a large range of specialised branded products, many imported from thousands of miles away will be expensive......wonderful healthy food can be created with very basic, fresh, local, seasonal ingredients with a touch of herb, spices and effort for much less....... ;)
