Lord Digby Jones - Its back to the Victorian Poor Houses for the Unemployed!
Lord Digby Jones is one of the guys who has precided over the greed ridden bankrupt society we have here in the UK. On a recent BBC Panorama documentary he spoke to two young unemployed people and told them that if he had his way they'd effectively starve if they didn't find work. The two guys in question had found finding a job extremely difficult but when they did find work the employers kept them for a short time and then laid them off. This kind of thing goes on all the time and many people effectively lose confidence in themselves and any trust in employers. This sends them into a spiral of unemployment that they find hard to get out off.
When they go to the job centre there are very few jobs and very few programmes to help them back to work.
Just walk into one of these places. There is no real engagement with your situation, no creative ideas, no proactive efforts to resolve your problems and no consistent, sincere support by employers to offer sustainable employment to the unemployed.
So in the 21st century the supposed leading lights of the business community offers autocratic, short sharp shock tactics that have more chance of causing riots and criminality than getting people back to work.
This is the level of intelligence and morality we are working with here guys.
So much for Lord Digby Jones.
Digby Jones told the guys that they should tidy themselves up. Well......he should look in the mirror... lol
Mr Feather head.
