Finding a level

I really do worry about the level of political debate in this country.

Plaid Cymru distribute a poster portraying the First Minister and the Secretary of State for Wales dressed in hoodies so as to protest at the demonisation of young people and the 'failure of the Government to tackle social problems, a lack of jobs and house prices.'

Plaid say Labour's anti-social behaviour policies demonise young people for their dress sense, instead of tackling crime effectively. Labour say that the posters, put up by the Plaid Cymru Youth Movement, prove Plaid is "soft on crime".

For goodness sake! How is any of this rhetoric actually advancing the cause of young people or of safer communities? No wonder politics is so devalued in the minds of the general public.
