Meagre Offerings

The basic reality behind Tory false claims to have lowered youth (or any) unemployment, and providing a future.

A future?! Highest ever levels of low paid work, zero hours work schemes, false training and apprenticeships, workfare, sanctions.... plus raising tuition fees, cutting services including to youth clubs, libraries, cutting the independent living fund for the disabled... and so on and on.

This government are a disgrace; an elitist, corrupt, money obsessed nest of vipers.

(Plus; some will hopefully recognise this as a parody of a Tory election poster for former Tory PM John Major, which was recently briefly revived for MP Sajid Javid)
