How mean can they get?

The Chancellor unveiled his next round of cuts yesterday.  These can be criticized on the basis that they will not help the economy in any way, that they undermine business and consumer confidence, they will ensure the economy remains mired in recession.   They are  also unfair.

One example will suffice.

There will be a new seven-day wait before people can claim benefits. “Those first few days should be spent looking for work, not looking to sign on,” Osborne said.

Under the changes, half of all jobseekers will have to attend their local jobcentre every week rather than once a fortnight. 

How insulting to question the need and indeed right of people who have through no fault of their own (and quite probably lost their job as a result of Government cuts), to be able to claim their miserly benefit.

And is there is a relationship between visiting the job centre and job creation? No of course not!

At every opportunity the Government castigate the poor and impose further suffering.  Completely immoral and unjust but we forgot it’s really fair!
