Memoirs of a benefits scrounger: Jobcentre sanctions me for getting a job

There’s a sitcom on ITV at the moment called The Job Lot, about life in a West Midlands Job Centre. I’ve missed every episode so far (not by intention) but my impression has been that it may be a whitewash job for the DWP. Here’s the true story.
I doubt the ITV sitcom has had any scenes that are even close to being as funny as the interview chronicled in this article – probably because we know that this one actually happened. The sad part is that people are going through this every day.
For real.

      That’s odd because the article has been attracting hits. I did reblog it late last night so I wonder if you’ve looked back far enough.
      It may be FB going censorious again but I’d like to rule out other possibilities first.

        I’ve scrolled back 24 hours and it’s not there Mike. All todays blogs are there though and I have shared them. I’m so chuffed about the Court ruling on the WCA’s. I’ve been banging on about this for bloody years!
