What is it about times of economic turmoil that makes some people so lazy?
Every few days we hear, for instance, of another firm like HMV closing down and bang! Thousands more skivers swoop like vultures, demanding more money that could be going to true innovaters like The Royal Bank Of Scotland. It’s sickening.
It doesn’t happen when times are good. The fickle masses are fine about working then of course, but at times like this they suddenly can’t seem to be bothered.
And it gets worse. Great leaders like Ian Duncan Smith create jobs with the Workfare programe : Giving money to responsible party donors in order that they can have these jobless “people” work for nothing. And Lo! The lucky job seekers start to moan again, as if they are not being paid – but they are being paid, paid in generous benefits! Don’t hide from the fact that these loafers often have warm meals and can even pay some of their bills.
But enter the left, ever obsessed with detail, sniping that this position contradicts DWP statements and often doesn’t equate with the minimum wage. What kind of obsessive oddball puts mere facts before the experienced kindness of Ian Duncan Smith?
It’s not as if the minimum wage is realistic anyway. Just because people without work should be miserable and pushed to destitution, should those in low pay positions get off scot-free? They have not aspired to make lots of money so there is something wrong with them. Why reward that?
And these graduates complaining that, having attained £10,000s of debt, there is not work available to suit their qualifications : Are they economically illiterate? A modern economy doesn’t provide for that sort of thing willy-nilly. Thank heavens we at least have qualified economists like Mr Osborne to guide us through the storm with such braying idiots on the loose.
They insist they are above any menial task. How do we know? Because Mr Duncan Smith said so, and he doesn’t make stuff up except for the most integral of reasons.
We need to compete with countries like China, who already has massive advantages in economies of scale. How can we rival them in other ways? With firm decisive government – a clampdown on dissenting ninnies and yes, the odd mass execution if necessary. A PFI deal to build concentration camps should be available to any prepared to pay the going rate for dinner with the divine Camerons. £1/4m is worth it alone for Sams lasagne (guaranteed horse free).
I am being realistic about what the brave future demand. Yet the left, and the human detritus they defend, live in a fantasy land where Workfare is “slavery”. Weep for declining standards in education, forced on us by gay multi-faith liberals. For without such decline such hard-liners would know it is not slavery of which they speak, but serfdom. Not that it makes a difference, they don’t know their place anyway – raised as they were in an abhorrent culture of free thought. Do they entertain such notions as “free thought” in the mysterious Orient of China (which used to be a horrid communist tyranny, but now embraces capitalism, and thus is beyond reproach)? Of course not, and neither should we.
