On and on it goes

This piece from the Guardian yet again highlights yet again the increased pressure on people with nothing. When will this endless hatred change? When are the poor ever going to get their chance? For god's sake, at what point will this vile crusade end? We already have people killing themselves thanks to ATOS. Now some right wing 'think' tank puts forward again the lie that welfare is all about a 'poisonous' something for nothing system. These idiots wouldn't know reality if it shook them by the hand. We've had riots, we've got no growth, we've got unemployment rising - still, and the genius minds at the Policy Exchange want to tell the unemployed they must do MORE for their pittance allowance. Apparently looking in newspapers shouldn't count as searching for a job for the purpose of fulfilling the JSAg. Good advice guys: now people won't even bother.
What do these cunts want us to do? What does count as looking for work? They of course don't say. They aren't interested in providing solutions only kicking at the crutches and depriving people who already have nothing. I'm not going to justify myself here, but if these idiots can't even recommend the DWP fix it's own hopeless job search site how can they criticise the entire system and those claiming. Some people will have access to more facilities than others - people in cities over those in rural areas for instance. I rely on the Internet for job searching, no doubt that isn't enough. Well tough shit.
I say it's high time to fight back. Let's send a message to these pompous pricks and give them something to really think about. You want the poor to starve in the gutter? Then be prepared for the consequences. Deprivation is the breeding ground of riots and such. These cretins are fast tracking anti social behaviour that will make august look like a damp Monday morning.

I Fucking Hate the Work Programme

That did not go well.
My legs were wobbly to begin with as I closed in on the church that passes for the office of the employment wing of the Salvation Army. My appointment was 3 to half past. I really did feel sick. Pretty early on, when he asked for the forms he gave me last time to fill in, I knew that what was arranged on the letter (a short interview with me bringing my CV and jobsearch) was actually going to be much longer. I also knew that, come half three when I had to leave to catch my bus back ten minutes later, I was going to have problems. 
Unfortunately, though more for me I fear, it never got that far; at 20 past he terminated the interview citing my apparent 'putting up barriers' as the reason not to continue. This was because I refused consent for him to keep my CV. I asked why he needed it and offered, three times, to show it to him (that's all), he said it was to apply for jobs on my behalf. The EEC's need this information.

U.N. and Them

What are my thoughts on this?

It's a humanitarian crisis. Is that a phrase we should only reserve for famines in Africa or force majeure? We seem to have a blind spot to these things when they are on our own doorstep - it couldn't happen here, could it?


Seven years of the most brutal selfish and greedy governance, not to mention the least competent, has brought us to the point where the United Nations are telling the Tories they are causing a 'human catastrophe' amongst the disabled and the sick. This is not the first time, and even that doesn't include their comments on the hated and spiteful (not to mention ineffectual) Bedroom Tax.

Do the Tories persist with these policies because they actually believe they are correct or even moral?

Or is it because they have no other way to appease the media attack dogs and/or the braying Shirefolk that delight in persecuting the poor as they do torturing foxes and badgers?

Is it both?

We have a government, in a first wor…

Into the Mirror

So tomorrow morning is my WCA. Needless to say I am not looking forward to it, and that would be an understatement. It's currently sitting in my mind, refusing to leave, cooking up a stultifying negativity. That's the thing with depression; it's a presence that, even if you manage to distract yourself for a time, it returns with hammer-like vengeance. That feeling alone is enough to make the problem of depression the horrible reality it is. Sucker punched by your own thoughts.

Logically - as if we live in a logical society - I should pass. My situation is unchanged from last year. However that is exactly why I won't pass. You might think it reasonable to simply report that fact, but the simplicity of doing so, the ease of process, is exactly why you can't. Instead I will be seen, likely by someone different, and asked the same questions; some of which will not be relevant but part of the deceptive nature of the process. For example, being asked 'how did you get…
