Conversation with imaginary David Cameron, based on his conference speech

  • David Cameron:

    We need to take bold action to tackle youth unemployment

  • Me:

    I agree. What bold action do you suggest?

  • David Cameron:

    There are still over a million young people not in education, employment, or training.

  • Me:

    Yes. That is very bad. There are no jobs. What are you going to do about it?

  • David Cameron:

    Today it is still possible to leave school, sign on, find a flat, start claiming housing benefit and opt for a life on benefits. It's time for bold action here

  • Me:

    I doubt people would choose that if there were decent jobs available. What would you do to create more jobs?

  • David Cameron:

    I would take bold action!

  • Me:

    What bold action?

  • David Cameron:

    We should give young people a clear, positive choice: Go to school. Go to college. Do an apprenticeship. Get a job.

  • Me:

    How are you going to make sure there are enough apprenticeships and jobs to go around? How are you going to make sure college doesn't lead straight back to unemployment?

  • David Cameron:

    Bold action!

  • Me:

    What bold action? Are you threatening to just cut young people's benefits here? Because if there are no jobs, taking benefits away can literally kill people.

  • David Cameron:

    Bold action!

  • Me:

    You can't just keep saying words with no plan. That's not going to fix anything.

  • David Cameron:

    Bold action!

  • Me:

    If your action is going to be bold why not say what it is?

  • David Cameron:

    BOLD ACTION! BOLD ACTION! ALL HAIL THE BOLD BUT EXTREMELY VAGUE ACTION!
