The Times: Mandelson tells parents how to deal with the boomerang generation

This year’s graduates started at university three or four years ago during a buoyant employment market, said Denise Taylor, a career coach and author of the guide, “so everything has been geared up for them getting a graduate job, and in the last year the economic climate has changed”.
Boys find it particularly difficult to accept more menial jobs in call centres or as shop assistants.

Subtext: the housing market needs more cannon fodder, to wit, first time buyers and private renters.

If my kids had just finished Uni I'd be quite happy for them to stay living at home with me out of protest at the whole housing market pyramid scheme. That said, I'd still goad them into finding a job, however 'menial'.

It is unbelievable for Mandelson to come out with Tebbit like 'get on your bike' comments considering Labours role in shafting the UK economy.

Even if the graduates did get a job, they would still have to live with their parents anyway, otherwise no hope of raising 40K deposit from saved disposable income (about to get even harder).
