Compass Youth is supporting the protest outside the Liberal Democrat regional conference because it was Nick Clegg and Vince Cable who conned our generation. They promised they were different and they were on the side of students and young people. They lied, and they wonder
why young people have no faith in politicians? We are now an angry and jilted generation, told if we volunteer for tens of thousands of pounds of debt we will have access to unprecedented opportunities in a globalised economy. The reality is that youth and graduate unemployment is the highest in our living memories. If we are lucky enough to get a job it is often short-term, temporary and poorly paid. When the politicians who claimed they were on our side sold out quicker than Justin Bieber tickets we've every right to be angry!
