I live in the US, and the most unemployment you may draw at this time in my state of residence is 12 weeks. No extensions. During that 12 weeks you must turn in proof of your job hunt, written, and take classes to help you with your job search. In 12 weeks if you don't have a job yet you are just SOL.

Not only is UK unemployment historically low right now but it was acheived without this kind of totally unnecessary vindictive & punitive measure.
It's been going on centuries.
You'll be asking for the return of the workhouse next.

A good example of this injustice is, carers who look after family members full time who are sick, they get paid £50.00 per week and don't have an option to go to work by their own choice, yet if they didn't do this the government would have to fork out billions IMO to do the same job when they have to go and stay in Hospital or a nursing home, a better deal for the carers would be a good start with the funding saved from spongers.
