The Tory Poster (Amended)

People who refuse work offers when on benefits lose them anyway. This will simply hit those new on benefits the recently out of work. The long term professional unemployed know all the tricks and dodges so wont be caught out by this anyway.
Stupid poster by a desperate party.

I would agree with you QM. It shows, to me, that the tories (rather like labour), have little of substance to offer and they're panicked by the libdems.

All crisis management.

Hi SR. Can I suggest that it is rapidly desending into management by crisis!

subrosa said...

Indeed you can Apogee. :)

Nice knee jerk reaction. No, I'm not on about the Tory poster, but rather the reaction it has elicited.

I'd go further and suggest that the long term unemployed should be put to work, in the community, because benefits has long since stopped being a safety net and is now considered, by many, to be a comfortable alternative to working for a living. The benefits bill is huge and any efforts to cut it are to be applauded.

Cowboy, I'd say the whole benefit system requires a total revamp.

I mean, what 'wealthy' country insists pensioners who have been robbed of a large chunk of their pension, apply for pension credit if they're living below the poverty line?
