The Welfare State we’re in – don’t want a 25k job, sorry

Posted by davidburbage on March 11, 2008

There is a good book – which I’d highly recommend – of this title.  You can buy it here – the website is here .

 What led me to blog about this today was this story here – The £7-per-hour jobs locals don’t want in which our great young hard working British youth say :

“No mate I’d prefer to sign-on than do that.”

“I don’t want to work in like no cornfield.”

Did you spot in the second quote the modern vernacular – “like”. Nice bit of journalistic accuracy … I wonder if the Government are happy that taxpayers’ money is dished out to anyone – who doesn’t want to work in like no cornfield.
