Alan Johnson has
lost the plot! In a very big way.
He wants to make it a criminal
offence for any child to leave school before 18. Now, that really will help
someone get a job won't it!?! The man is insane even thinking about this.
In a nut shell he wnats to make education compulsory up to the age of 18, but
instead of reforming qualifications to allow this, he simply wants to
criminalise the youth of today. But what makes it worse is that the names of
all 16 and 17-year-olds will be added to a database held by local authorities
so that they can track their participation in education or training. It's that
database again, and now he wants all youths' “tracked”.
We should all be very afraid at how this goverment views us. Big Brother Labour
is coming, and they want to track every move we make or brand us criminals, so
much for civil liberties.
