Is Frank Field right about the New Deal?

I have a huge amount of respect for Frank Field and his piece in today's Times makes for sobering reading. Field argues that the New Deal for Young People should be scrapped and the money saved re-cycled into green community programmes that lead to actual jobs.

Is he right? I think (fear) he may well be talking a good deal of sense.

What do you think?

"Green" initiatives have a very limited shelf life because very soon the global warming scam will be exposed for what it really is and the whole "green" economy is going to collapse.
