Unemployment Down

#1 by phil ( deleted ) , Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:15 pm

The newspapers seem to be making a big thing of the fact that unemployment for the three month period to August this year was down by 50,000. The thing is how much of this is down to the temporary jobs provided by the Olympics that a lot of Jobseekers were forced to take or loose their benefit? In the same period unemployment in the West Midlands went up by 5000.

The only reason part time jobs are being taken is because, the unemployed are being forced to take them. I can't see the sense myself because they are probably claiming just as much benefit from other agencies.

Dead right, not much is making sense to me. We have a Government who isn't making much sense about anything allied to a party who knows even less and an opposition party who caused most of it and want to get back to cause a little bit more. Brilliant.

I know all the parties are rubbish, If I wasn't so old I'd risk the £500 deposit and stand myself at the next election. I couldn't do any worse than the idiots we have there now.

I really can't remember a time Phil when so many people hold most of our scumbag politicians in such little regard.
I am also glad I live in England, I would have been stoned to death for saying that in some countries.
