Good post. I knew how this BS worked all along. The benefits do everything they can to make it appear people are not unemployed so that the national
statistics can be cooked. They don't just do it with the employment figures either.
You mentioned having to meet targets. well I watched a show some years ago called "the trap" by Adam Curtis.. I recomend viewing it.
Anyhow in this documentary Curtis goes on about our target driven system. Apparently this idea of having targets was originally from America, i think
it was the rand corporation who first though it up as a great idea, back in the 1960's...The thing is in the very early days of research experimenting
with target driven companies etc, it was found that the pressure of having to hit targets on a regular schedule let to massive amounts of cheating and
manipulating facts and figures, by employees and bosses, in order to meet the targets. This is crucially important to know, because when our
governments restructured the welfare system, the NHS, the schools etc..they made sure everyone had to meet targets and turned every part of the public
sector into a target driven environment.
This is what is really infuriating, the government knew targets lead to massive amounts of corruption, they knew full well before they introduced
targets into everything. This just illustrates how evil our governments are, they know all the stats on employment are lies, on hospital waiting times
are lies, classroom over crowding etc. They know it, they know the reason for all the lies is people having to meet targets they cannot meet, without
making things up. So in a nut shell the governments, for atleast the last 25 years have been quite happy to know the entire public sector is built on
a pack of lies. All they want are statistics to say everything is OK, for our credit ratings etc...but its all BS, its just like one big company with
a corrupt accountant who is cooking the books so the share price stays high..the only difference is the target driven system is the corrupt
accountant, but the bosses hired it knowing it was corrupt, but they can plead ignorance and whenever scandals hit the news to do with the NHS or
welfare system or schools, the government always scape goat individuals rather than taking responsibility for the system they introduced that was
known to force people to cheat.
Here is another example. of how our target driven public sector lets people down. back when I went to school in the late 80's, there were several very
disturbed, violent and dangerous kids who attended, I wont go into specific details but there were numerous serious assaults, where the police were
called in, but more often than not the police weren't even informed, yet the biggest punishment anyone ever got was a 3 day suspension. These were
kids who should have been expelled but never were because it would have showed up in the schools league tables and it would have affected the
government funding...so rather than get funding cut for doing the right thing, the headmasters and teachers simply bury their heads in the sand and
allow nut jobs to do as they please..
I mean think of bullying for instance, the problem never ever goes away does it. and it's continually in the media and nobody has a solution to it,
supposedly, well the reason it doesn't go away is because the kids doing it don't get kicked out of school, this is the obvious solution that nobody
talks about..The media say tell your parents and tell your teachers, but if the teachers don't expel the problem kids then how the hell does it help
if you tell them, this is what angers me massively about the continual BS I hear in the media. the same kids who were out of control in my school went
on to commit serious criminal offences later on and got locked up, but as that's yet another target driven environment..you know the police and prison
service, so you can bet they only did a third of the time they were sentenced to or got "suspended sentences"...but it looks good on paper.
