want to ask Tim Loughton MP a question?

Emma_REmma_R *********Posts: 50
Hello!

I'm interviewing Tim Loughton (the shadow minister for children and young people) tomorrow, for our sister website Lifetracks.com. It'd be great to hear from you if there are questions you'd like to ask him... any ideas welcome!

Questions so far include:

Diplomas - what will the Conservatives do about the fact some universities don't accept them?
Tuition fees - How are you going to motivate people to go if the costs are prohibitive and your degree doesn't necessarily agree a good job?
volunteering - the Tories are planning to introduce community service-style volunteering for young people, but won't this devalue volunteering, the point of which is that people do it because people want to do it, not because they have to?
The world is changing fast. What kind of jobs are we preparing young people for over the next, say, 15 years and how will the Conservatives ensure young people are ready and able to compete globally in the job market?

    What will the Conservatives do RE: apprenticeships?

    Why does the Conservative Party still believe that the target of 50% of 18-30 year olds in this country going to this country is justified? Isn't this utterly mad target what has contributed to the news that graduate unemployment in this country is now at a record high?

    Because people can be made to work shittier jobs if they've got a £20,000 in debt and a useless degree in Comparative Star Trek Studies thus perpetuating the soul sucking office being the workplace of the majority in this country?

    Who are you?

    Have you ever felt the urge to spit in Gordon Brown's porridge?

    Were you educated at Eton or Harrow or were your parents so poor they had to send you to a second rate school like Rugby?

    Are the Lib Dems really as useless and wishy washy as they appear?
