Green Party Manifesto’s commitment to progressive ‘youthful’ policies

Green Party poster

Further to yesterday’s post on Labour’s ditching of its statutory services pledge, Sue Robertson, a significant figure in youth work across the years, an IDYW supporter and a Green councillor in Brighton draws our attention to her party’s youth policies. Given our discussion at national conference about IDYW needing to defend both youth work and young people this range of progressive anti-austerity proposals has considerable merit.

  1. Andy Smart says:

    I think “has considerable merit” seems a bit grudging. What about “is very welcome”?

  2. Tony Taylor says:

    I wasn’t meaning to sound so cussed so a very warm welcome it is.

  3. Jon ord says:

    …is that not just your northern understatement Tony – being a Lancashire lad I am familiar with that -.but more to the point now I have another reason for why I joined the green party a few months ago…
