I think one of the most fundamental pivotal points in peoples political views is whether you are cynical or hopeful about what people do when they are given an opportunity of helping hand. I'm always of the belief that for every piss taker, there are many more who use support as stepping stone.

'Back to work' projects are gesture politics at their absolute worst. For every family of scumbags happy to sit around the house all day, there are several genuine job-seekers who don't need to spend their days 'proving' that they're looking for work or working on sub-minimum wage.

They're also massively open to abuse, often used by big corporations to cover fluctuations in seasonal demand. There have even been cases of paid workers being sent home to make way for unpaid workfare workers

Mine is whether you're a self-centred wanker or not. Runs for the hills.
There are 700,000 vacancies. We have the Minimum Wage and Tax Credits - I'm not sure how much more incentive people actually need to work?
86,000 of them in the NHS.
You just cant imagine why these vacancies remain open....

Indeed. One of my clients is a Structural Engineering practice with a dozen vacancies across the UK.

Unfortunately the graduate labour market is a awash with people with utterly useless arts degrees who aren't interested in retraining.
They should spend their lives surrendering their labour to make the fella a handsome profit.
They ought to. Graduate entry starts at £30K.

Fug the design industry, the theatre, film, fine art, music they are all useless with no value to the country. Fug Glastonbury, fug the Proms, fug the National Theatre, Fug the Royal Ballet, fug our music industry, fug the Edinburgh fringe. Settle for that job in structural engineering and console yourself that you can buy that expensive BMW you've been told you've always needed kids!  Cool
