Hello again , i`ve read through most of the posts in the little time i`ve been online and i`ve got to say that i`m quite astounded how many of you
have completley missed the point of this thread.
I`m sorry if i did not paint the whole picture in my O.P , and i`d like to just take a sec to clear this up if I may.
The new sanction rules do not only apply to anyone who is refusing work , or refusing to "do as they are told", these sanctions apply to anyone and
everyone , but it goes deeper than that.
When the work programme was first introduced we were told that it was completley voluntary , we could leave it when ever we like , and once on the
VOLUNTARY work programme we would be guaranteed a job within 6 months.
Needless to say i agreed to sign up to the programme , being poor and having no other options it seemed like the wise thing to do.
Three weeks later i was told that the work programme was now MANDATORY and there was no way out of it. They then tried to cover this up by editing
documents , most of the companies and charities pulled out , yet the corrupt A4e is still sitting there with thier hand out sucking your beloved
taxpayer`s pounds out of the benefit system.
I`d like to make it clear that the work programme , is a 2 year course which you MUST attend , on this course you sit in a room full of random people
, talking about how much you want a job whilst doing word searches and puzzles like 5 year olds. When you ask questions , or try to strike an
intellectual conversation , the room erupts into chaos as if you have killed a kitten. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE EDUCATED.
Yes i agree that there IS a lot of people committing benefit fraud and plain milking the system , and then there is people like myself who want to
work , we are being ignored , ridiculed , and victimised by the endless hordes of self rightious superhuman taxpayers.
I did not post the information to start heated debates on who thinks who desrves what and who`s to blame, i posted this information because i think it
is actually quite important.
As for those of you who mention the fact that you recieve benefits whilst attnding the , MANDATORY WORK ACTIVITY (not to be confused with the 2 year
mandatory work programme) , i would like to ask you, with all due respect , where on earth where you educated ? .... I for one was educated in Public
Schools all of my younger years and began to question a lot of what i was being force fed , when i left school i was working all day and "researching"
all night for about a year or so , learning my rights as a human being and the laws of the land.
My benefit , now i have managed to sign back on , will be £56.25 per week , paid in fortnightly installments , totalling to £112.50 per fortnight
..... now .... if we devide £56.25 by 40 we have £ 1.40 per hour ........ the National Minimum Wage for 21 and over in the United Kingdom is £6.19
and once again ... It is ILLEGAL .... to pay less than the National Minimum Wage.
Try it yourself , with your wage this week , try to live on £56.25 for ONE week .... i dare you. Your £56.25 must pay any and all bills , put food
in your cupboards , clothes on your back , and keep a roof over your head.
And just for the fun of it phone the jobcentre for help "looking for work" , see how happy you are by next friday.
I`d like to say that the conservative party IS mostly to blame for the current situation regarding the benefits system since they have been in "power"
for over two years and have made a complicated system even more complicated by choice rather than mistake . I know you die hard tories out there
cringe when people say it as it is and at the end of the day a little truth never killed anyone , but blaming labour for everything just shows how
petulant and down right pathetic this government is. Did labour bring in a police state and FORCE us to vote for them year in year out for over a
decade ? or was it because the labour party (as shady as they can be) actually understand how to govern a country ?
NOTE : I`m sorry if I seem a little ratty but the nights are getting colder up here and we`ve had low fog for nearly a fortnight so my sleeping
pattern is all to pot , called in to my mothers for post yesterday and was "ordered" to get a shower , have something to eat and get some sleep. But
sleeping is easier said than done when your looking at life from the bottom of this rotten society.
