Following on from the amazing plans to send Blears-Plods round to help the work shy get up and ready for non existent jobs, a wonderful new job creation scheme is announced to a fanfare of ridicule.
8 "inspectors" are to be given a whole day of training and sent out to go door to door for 7 weeks on a massive hourly rate of £8.49, to train hard working families how to waste less food and eat more scraps. Their target is announced as 24,500 homes in this trial period.
That works out at 24,500 divided by 8 inspectors = 3,062.5 per inspector. 7 weeks gives each inspector a target of 437.5 homes per week. Working 7 days a week that's 62.5 homes per day. If they worked 24 hours a day that's 2.6 homes to train per hour, or 23 minutes per home.Fucking good going, I'd say. But what can you teach someone in 23 minutes?
And will these super-human inspectors also have Police escorts? Because I can imagine the welcome they are going to get in some quarters!!
