    Very interesting.

    Recently my local Tory MP has been organising job fairs- voluntary- but I now wonder, was this the precursor of enforced attendance?

    Did he know this was to come?

    Do I trust him?

    Haha

    Just like to point out that only BT charge 0845 numbers as local rate, many other providers actually charge more for these calls and if they were an “ordinary” number ie: 0121 etc then they would be a free call for a lot of us. Just saying 🙂

    Is that Jaz Paneser an employee of Jobcentreplus? If not he must be one of Smith’s Tory Party stooges with no powers to impose sanctions. In my view the right to sanction is inferred in that letter and should Paneser not be a DWP apparatchik then his actions could be construed to be fraud.
