Labour leader warns over UK future

Ed Miliband, Britain's Labour leader, is to give a speech on the legitimate fear for the country's future, as there is to be fewer opportunities for prosperity.

To Miliband, there is a fear of less happiness and prosperity for the new British generation. According to him, getting an education, finding a job and owning a home would be hard in the near future of the country.

He is also to say that the British people should try more for a standard life.

According to a survey carried out by Labours, 71 percent of British people expect a harder life for their next generation and only 9 percent think that life would be easier.

Miliband is to say: "We may not have given it a name in the way that Americans talk about the 'American Dream' but it is there nevertheless.

"It is defined by the promise that each generation will pass on to the next a life of greater opportunity, prosperity and happiness. But for the first time in generations there is now a real and legitimate fear that the British promise will be broken and the next generation will have fewer opportunities and find it harder to get on than the last."

He will add: "We have always been about a society where the promise of Britain can go beyond the most affluent - that lower and middle-income families can guarantee a better future for the kids.

"So I am determined that this is the challenge which will be at the heart of the Labour Party I lead. A Britain which passes on better chances rather than worse ones to our children."

There are an increasing number of people who are pessimistic about the younger generation's lives, according to the Labours.

Among the 3,000 people questioned from, 63 percent of the women and 60 percent of the men under 45, were pessimistic about the future life. This figure raised to 76 percent of the women and 79 percent of the men over 45.
