We got you into it, get yourselves out

This beggars belief.
Third sector minister Ed Miliband is calling for youth organisations across the country to form a political movement to raise the status of young people...He cited four areas in which young people need a better deal: opportunities for their voices to be heard, a wider local youth offer to broaden their horizons, increased respect from society and fairer portrayal in the media.
We have a Government that has repeatedly called young people 'yobs', dignified centuries-old prejudice with legislation, made hanging out in public little short of a criminal offence, introduced child curfews and imprisoned a
record number of children. And now it's up to young people themselves, and those of us who have done our level best to defend them, to raise their status.

This is probably the closest we've ever come to qualifying for the swearblog round-up.

It's an affront to all children that a Labour minister can stand yup and say this after all the time they've had in power and all the legislation they've put in.
Unless of course he's looking to create "acceptable" youth groups.
I really really hope NuLab don't find this dangerous piece of work a new safe seat and he just fades into history.
