I did chuckle over my muesli this morning Iain, it seems that you are so keen to be ousted out from Caxton House and into the dole office that you’ve started spewing out your sh!t faster than you can put on one of your pairs of taxpayer funded Y fronts. Sennakot should bloody sponsor you – they’d make a fortune. Their tagline could be “Before Sennakot Iain Duncan Smith couldn’t give a sh!t, now he’s cr@pping on everyone from a great height!” Think it over. Once you lose your job which is on a knife’s edge at the moment, you’ll need something to fall back on, well apart from Betsy and her rich family!
So down to the pot and kettle.. Last night I saw this link for a Guardian article. http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/sep/06/uk-lowest-paid-classed-not-working-enough . It took me to an interesting piece about people in low paid work being told they aren’t working enough. Being made to attend the Jobcentre to search for second jobs, when people are still struggling to find their first and sanctioning those who fail to do so. This if you don’t mind me saying is an utter p!sstake, but unfortunately this doesn’t surprise me as this ‘initiative’ is true to form for you and your supercilious colleagues. Your utter contempt for others you deem beneath you is just repulsive. Just a reminder Smithy Boy, WE pay your wages, WE employ you.. You work for US.
Now as your Employer, I am a bit concerned that you haven’t grasped the basics. If there are no jobs – you can’t get one. If the jobs are part-time, temporary or zero hour contracts you aren’t going to be able to be employed ‘enough’ (as to your criteria), if companies do not pay enough wages then their will always be a requirement for benefits in a ‘top up’ capacity. If companies are allowed to avoid paying tax then the economy is not going to be strong enough to support it’s workers. If workfare is allowed to continue the only thing to be learned is that people can be exploited by corporations and companies in order to fill the pockets of the rich and empty the pockets of the poor, that theft and slavery is legal if it is being done by the Government and that our lives are not equal, not by design but by discrimination, hate and profitability. Oh and that you are a dick – but we’ve already learned that.
Now with regards to not working enough, this works both ways. As Secretary of State for Work and Pensions your job is to help people have enough to live on when times are bad for them, in return people pay into the system when times are good. You should be looking at ways to get people into good quality, fairly paid employment. You should be providing relevant training opportunities. The welfare state should be supportive and work with the public like a good marriage, helping people in sickness and in health til death do we part. You Mr Duncan Smith are neglecting our marriage and the UK Public would like a divorce please. Now pack your bags and f*ck off.
