I used to feel very strongly about things like this until the recent riots by unemployed people across the u.k. I think that was a landmark in modern society and showed us all that handing out care to the disadvantaged only corrupts. More power to large industry and the wealthy, they are the only ones that know how to look after the rest of us.

Fuzzy you've become a downtrodden serf. The spinning Jenny will liberate you.

It's true. Quite frankly I now struggle to justify to myself why those who are skilled enough to reach upper management should ever have to pay for bread and heating for someone who comes from a higher (petty) crime area. It's not helping them, it's keeping them in luxury.

Some of these unemployed people have flat screen t.vs?? Let them eat out of bins, that might convince them to go to college and better themselves.

We're going f***ing backwards, at an incredibly sharp rate.

That slavery story was just incredible. 53 a week for 30 hours and being available between 9am and 10pm. Tesco, with profits of 3.5 billion, getting free labour (just in time for Christmas ) in return for...absolutely diddly c***ing squat. Not even the promise of a job at the end of it.

Now they're making it even easier for employers to sack people as and when they f***ing feel like it, reducing job security and totally neglecting the likely harmful effects on the economy (the lower your job security, the less you spend).

Meanwhile their mates in the city hoard more and more for themselves, yet the whole mess is our fault for having credit cards. Cameron refuses to even consider a miniscule tax on financial transactions in case the utter c***s who messed everything up for the rest of us 'move abroad'. Oh dear, what a shame that would be.

I really wish the rioters had burned down the entire City.

btw the slave work story is as old as the hills. it used to be chain gangs doing unpaid work for people or being used to ruin competitors. it's the same excuse (the scum should be made to work instead of getting a free ride) and the same c***s happy to take advantage while claiming the moral high ground. impressive chutzpah, if nothing else.

Nope that's Ken Clarke's latest wheeze using prisoners as a cheap labour force for outside companies..

That's exactly what makes it so depressing - that nothing's changed. When chain gangs were around it wasn't 2011.

Was watching a documentary last night noting the rise of socialism in europe prior to ww1, mostly to do with jaures. Quite interesting, I can't blame the people in power, I blame the normal people stupid enough to support them and work against their colleagues. They're the biggest obstacle.
