For goodness & sanity sake (DO NOT) lose your job or you'll be instant scum

[quote= http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2014/04/07/who-the-fuck-does-esther-mcvey-think-she-is/]Newly unemployed people are to be treated as benefit scroungers from the first day of their claim the Minister for Unemployment Esther Mcvey announced today.

This is what this Government really thinks of so-called hard working people.  Get laid off, for any reason, and you are instantly transformed into benefit scum in the eyes of Esther McVey.

Nothing new mate, the British way is to walk all over the vulnerable and kick them in the teeth when they're down.

This is the actual statement https://www.gov.uk/government/news/jobseekers-required-to-do-more-to-find-work and quite clearly it doesn't merit the title of this thread

Not sure what the surprise is: it's been standard right wing tactics for years.
That, outright lies - "The bigger the lie, the easier it is to believe" - and accusing your opponents of every evil you're guilty of.
Think Nigel Farage in the EU debate.  Nothing more than lies, more lies and crazed accusations.
Nothing new here.

No one takes notice of official statements.

@Jim, thanks for posting the link to the actual statement. To me it seems like common sense and does not back up the OP choice of subject.
