Coalition Government is ‘irrelevant and out of steam’ claims Manchester Labour MP in reponse to Queen’s Speech

By Ian Silvera

The Coalition Government is ‘irrelevant and out of steam’ according to a Manchester MP in response to the Queen’s Speech yesterday.

Labour Party MP for Central Manchester Tony Lloyd said that the Coalition Government has failed to recognise in their legislative programme that there is a young, desperate generation seeking training, education or a decent job.

The 62-year-old warned that youth-unemployment and a sense a disenfranchisement will have a negative impact on level of crimes in communities.

He added: “When we recognize how David Cameron said nothing to that generation nothing to people who want to feel secure in their local communities then we can see how irrelevant and out of steam this government has become after only two years in office.”

The University of Nottingham graduate also said that the real issue is that the government is no longer competent.

The latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) report stated that the number of unemployed 16-24 year-olds fell to 1.03 million.
