      Yes – Jobs that don’t pay enough for people to survive, ensuring that the economy does not recover sufficiently to pay off the huge debts the Tories/Tory Democrats are racking up, which in turn ensure that more state services are cut.

      It was an aim of government from the Beveridge Report onwards, in fact. Callaghan didn’t give it up as a bad job; Thatcher brought in neoliberalism, which requires a larger proportion of unemployment in order to keep people from demanding higher wages, allowing the bosses to keep more of the money generated by firms for themselves. It’s one of the ways the rich have become so obscenely rich, while the poor have become so devastatingly poor, over the last 35 years.
      The past four years have seen that protest accelerated dramatically under your lovable Conservative/Tory Democrat Coalition government.

    How can it ever change? Are the poor doomed to be this way forever? Also did I hear right, that David CamOROn is a cousin of the queen? I read it in an article somewhere.

      Yes, you heard that right. Buckingham Palace put in a good word for him with his first employers so he could get a job.
      Couldn’t make it up, could you?
