As political arguments go, this one should be entered for an award. A Labour MP, Simon Danczuk, was on daytime television defending the Government’s latest restrictions on unemployment benefit.
Michael Jones's insight:
Oh dear, the sums are quite simple - 2.5m out of work, 0.5 to 0.7 million vacancies at any one time, even if those vacancies were restricted to jobseekers who are out of work then 2 million would be left, the economy cannot sustain the population without welfare (no 'developed' western country can) and these so called politicians are more concerned with ideology, grandstanding and power plays (like in Falkirk) than the struggle and suffering of the population.
I have strong feelings on this, I am a great believer in unpaid charity voluntary work, I do it myself, however the key word is voluntary, forcing people to do it on a mandated scheme is wrong, especially the most vulnerable, I know from experience that even with the best intentions you can set someone up to fail, and if they do then it's currently a 13 week benefit sanction! I have managed voluntary unemployment intervention schemes before and I can say with authority that they work well and the participants are motivated, mandated schemes imposed on the most vulnerable will not, and I for one will never run one.
