Hammond Update 2

The Spectator mentions the email under the title “Visions of Life Under A Tory Government”… despite the fact Labour and Lib Dems are equally culpable.

Then Nick Cohen in the Observer calls us “admirably bolshie”. Made my day. He goes on to write:

“Hammond’s miserliness ought to shock because graduates’ chances of finding work too often depend on signing up for one, two – maybe more – internships. As for their less well-qualified contemporaries, the number of young people in England not in education, employment or training rose to 935,000 this month. It is already higher than in the recession of the early 1990s and within months will top the numbers reached in the early 1980s.”
