Young Need To Revolt

Recommended Posts

been thinking the baby boomers had their little revolution in the 60's, gave us sexual/social liberation of a kind, do the present day young need to have a no more debt servitude revolution?

If people they know get burned in a significant HPC there may well be a silent revolution wherein the majority simply decide to not partake in debt servitude themselves. Of course if the over-indebted are bailed out then the debt servitude will be locked in as safe because any profits would be private and any losses socialised...

First they need to organise a new poltical party that actually represents them

Then they need to start using their vote en masse

For anyone preferably a party that are not . going to win so team red and blue are of the list ,policies are tailored around the the age demographic of those that vote the young on the whole don't vote so they will get sweet FA

If they vote for an existing party that's giving them sweet FA they send out the message that they're prepared to vote for sweet FA so that's still all they'll get. Although if they're going to vote for one of the existing parties they should clearly vote Green as the best of a bad bunch:

So, what is the Young Greens' youthmanifesto?

Quite simply, this youth manifesto is an easy-to-read version of the Green Party's most recent official election manifesto, which you can find at greenparty.org.uk/policies In writing this manifesto, we have chosen to highlight Green Party policies that we believe are particularly relevant to young people, including the following:

Economy & Society

• Protect public services

• Invest in a green future

Crack down on tax avoidance

Youth & Education

• Double spending on youth services

Free education for all

• Stop the spread of academies and free schools

Jobs

• No to workfare, yes to workplace democracy

• More training for young unemployed people

Make the Minimum Wage a Living Wage

Housing

• End the Right to Buy and introduce a Right to Rent

• Expand social and council housing

• More rights for people suffering from homelessness

Environment

• Create a massive shift to renewable enegy

• Localise the food chain

• Bring back the fuel duty escalator

Government & Community

Campaign for PR and votes at 16

• Support LGBTQUIA movements

• Reject anti-immigration discourse

Red and blue would like their vote so may offer something in exchange next time round ,just like the increased popularity of UKIP has forced change in team red and blue

I don't think UKIP are angling for the youth vote, too many NIMBY policies for how they think the country should be internally run, and getting out of the EU is not necessarily as attractive to younger voters as one might think. On the plus side less immigration might mean less competition for jobs here (to some extent, have to say there's a lot of non-EU immigration and not convinced that investing in industry, science and technology instead of the banks wouldn't produce a more significant difference in employment stats). But it would also make it much harder for young Brits to emigrate to the EU and away from rampant HPI among other things. How many of them would want to give up that right given how effectively the ladder has been pulled up in front of them?

Maybe they should spoil their ballots just to prove they can be arsed to get up and vote and it's the politicans who are being slack by not representing them. Sort of like a "none of the above" movement?

but if you don't vote, can't be @rsed to vote then you cannot complain when people do things you don't like.

that's the point of a democracy.

however when the parties do not fulfil/wilfully follow a different agenda once elected, then EVERYBODY in this island has a right to recourse.

like buying a car from the used car salesman and finding out it is a cut& shut a month or two later.

political parties should come with fixed-term warranties the same as most other consumer goods.

those not playing by the rules should have their sales apparatus removed/severely fined/ mp's sin-binned.
