Praise youth

Let’s all thank and praise the young and the not so young, people who marched through Chesterfield to protest against County Council plans to close youth centres.

It’s not our children who caused the recession; however, not having a vote has made their services a soft target.

With youth unemployment across Europe at an all-time high, tuition fees tripling and the EMA gone it’s no longer good to be young.

If we are “all in this together” a fairer way would be for individuals and large businesses who can afford it to give a little more back to the people who generated their wealth in the first place.
