Our glorious leaders have decided that anyone on benefits should be forced to work (except of course, they haven't and they won't) but I did think the argument could be fun. I doubt that many of us would argue that there are millions of work shy wankstains out there, either on incapacity benefit or the dole who simply prefer a life of mild discomfort rather than 40 hours of actual work (clue: ALL of Wales, most of the North of England) but the concept of actually rounding them up, issueing them with spades and telling them to dig new roads is an interesting one.
We also know that over 7 million drones work directly for the State and 21 million drones receive some sort of benefit in cash from the State. Perfect for any government heading into a recession in fact. Do as you are told or the money stops. House gone, job gone and loan sharks circling.
So am I in favour of the workshy being forced to work?
No. I am not. Pay people who want to work and for those who would rather not, simply withdraw all benefits. I see no logical reason why I should pay taxes in order to fnance the welfare hammock that Lee and Mohammeds wives are currently "relaxing in". I don't want the State rounding up the workshy. I want the workshy to simply starve to death by not handing them billions upon billions just to keep them voting ZNL. Whether they receive their dole or a wageslip from Gordon, it is still bonded labour.
Prisoners can cut grass, sweep the streets and test dangerous drugs. Dressed in pink ballgowns. Instead of learning advanced drug dealing and PS3 skills in luxury hotels.
Get to work or stop holding out your hands for more scratchcard/Stella vouchers. Also anyone with ME (how apt is that diagnosis?) should be culled.
EDIT: It looks as if the Pravda/Beeb has fucked up by actually mentioning
This shake-up will apply to all 4.5 million people on out-of-work benefits,
