Labour’s lies have let down Young People

Two things were crystal clear from June’s General Election result in the United Kingdom; Labour did not win the Election hence they have not formed Her Majesty’s Government and secondly Jeremy Corbyn did manage to stir up a significant amount of support within the Youth or millennial demographic.

However it is important to note that even though Corbyn got the “momentum” within the Youth demographic he did so with some shady promises which have come to light this week while Theresa May who returned a higher vote share than Margaret Thatcher and David Cameron won the hearts of many youth with more genuine measures.

This week millions of us were blown away by McDonnell’s admission on the Marr Show that a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour Party had no intention to address Student debt as promised because it was a mere “ambition”.

So hold up , you mean Labour wasn’t serious about addressing Student Debts?

To the horror of many Labour Youth supporters,  Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner went on to endorse McDonnell’s positions proving this was not a mistake.

If there was ever a time in modern Political history that millennials were taken for a ride, it was now.

Corbyn stood before thousands of youth during his election campaign speaking untruths about the Conservatives poor vision towards them and then filled their minds with a hope based on lies.

Lie fueled Labour have not only let down their Youth supporters by sharply and shamefully u- turning on their promise but worse than that is they have violated the trust of young voters.

Those youth who voted for Labour may have made a mistake but let’s give them credit, they took part in the Democratic process.  Youth across the Globe have never fully executed their power and rights within the Democratic framework, but on June 8th 2017, despite some misguided rationales they did in the UK.

However Jeremy Corbyn in the usual “disappointing style ” of the left has demonstrated to these young minds that democracy and politics can be a cruel place given that promises can be broken so easily.

Worse yet Labour broke these promises while being in Opposition where they don’t have the pressures of running a country proving why they shouldn’t be in Government.

This whole episode goes to show that Jeremy Corbyn is a man of little Character, false promises , no pure vision of development for the UK otherwise this promise would have never been uttered and clearly his journey isn’t based on enhancing the lives of UK citizens but rather geared towards his own individual stardom. Have we forgotten his antics with the train, when the train was actually empty he sought to create Train gate .

As dismayed as some of the youth might now feel based on these lies and no pun is intended , the youth of the UK must know that the Conservative Government led by Theresa May has their back.

The Conservatives may not have made  lavish promises to youth as Corbyn did , but they made a sustainable covenant to all Youth that they will improve all forms of education as well as create jobs therefore giving every young person an opportunity to improve their way of life.

Testament to these facts have been the announcement by the Education Secretary Justine Greening that the Education sector would receive a further 1.3 billion pounds in funding while the latest employment rate shows that the UK has the lowest Unemployment rate in 40 years therefore solidifying that jobs are being created for our youth.

The Youth of the UK need to realise and accept that  the false promises and rants of the Labour party are only geared towards earning power as well political stardom for Jeremy Corbyn.

However they must never feel isolated from the political system as there is a group of people working for their benefit which they should join  to assist and that’s the Conservative party.

    You need to learn to read. Nowhere in the labour manifesto did it state anything about student ‘ debt’. What it did say was student fees would be abolished. Basically you listened to Greening and, because she is Tory and would never make anything up about the Labour party you believed the spin. I’m just pleased her lies have been reported here in the UK but saying that UK students sent and stupid as you are trying to make out. Prat
