To think that a blanket ban on benefits for under 25s

Is not only blatantly unfair but also unworkable?

Under a future Tory government, you can leave school at 18, work, lose your job at 23 and be forced straight onto workfare, because you are not eligible for benefits - never mind that you've worked and paid in!

And isn't it blatant age discrimination? Every time I think the Conservatices can't sink any lower, they do...

They can't, because they would have had to cut as well, but they did not set themselves a target of eliminating the deficit in one parliament. The Coalition did, and they have never stopped making excuses for failing.
