Evil awaiting its chance

Also from YPN, this lovely quote from the National Youth Agency’s CE, Tom Wylie:

“I don’t know why they put positive in front of activities – no noun ever goes unadorned by the spin masters”

He’s right – young people are never entitled to mere leisure provision; only to ‘positive activities’, ‘diversionary programmes’ and ‘early intervention schemes’. Speaks volumes about the government’s view of children.
