YOUR LETTERS: The UK is on the skids

Have your say

Young people who have decided to vote to stay in the European Union at the upcoming referendum, or who simply can’t be bothered to vote at all, need to think again.

It is their future that is at stake and taking the advice of self-serving elites who have lined their pockets at the public’s expense is a dangerous game.

This country is on the skids, with a national debt of nearly £2 trillion – a daunting figure that can be more than doubled if public sector pension liabilities are taken into account.

The EU is in a similar perilous financial state, with its disastrous Euro-zone on the verge of implosion.

A vote to stay in is not a vote for the status quo unless a slide into bankruptcy can be defined this way.

Youth unemployment in most EU countries is between 30 per cent and 50 per cent, so no comfort there.

The future for young people will be much brighter once they wake up to the fact that generations of politicians have sold them out.

A start would be to vote to leave on June 23 and get decision-making back to our own parliament.

This way, young people with drive and vision should stand for election and set this country on a path where all its citizens may have a brighter future.

It is in their hands.
