HomeBlogDaily Heil reports on tomorrow’s C4 Dispatches’ ‘benefit cheats’ bonanza’ ~ ‘Jobcentre Plus staff pay out even though claimants’ documents are just shopping lists and letters saying ‘don’t give me a job’ ‘

    The whole thing is a setup from what I can gather.

    Celia’s right – It looks like a setup!

    You may look at this programme with a polarised view, but it’s not the time for “Bash a Civil Servant”. If the officer on the desk was worth his/her onions, each individual application would have been checked on the system – and asked for verification . C4 may show their undercover op writing down a shopping list – but no doubt if the Officer in charge was dealing with said informant – he’d be hauled over the coals for an explanation of his action and would apply a sanction to the claimant.

    this is a load of bs, just something to distract from the real problem with our welfare system which is ATOS.. that and workfare.

    they could have thought up a better lie, lve moved around quite a bit and have had to claim quite a few times and every time lve claimed lve had to provide evidence, just writing down a list of jobs wasnt good enough they want to know where as well so they can contact the employers to make sure your fulfilling the JSA agreements (Aberystwyth, Basingstoke, Hereford and Taunton jobcentres have asked for such proof), they also log this information to their computer systems, suffice to say this is a really bad setup or a really stupid advisor who hasnt been following the rules as evidence of jobsearch and applications must be provided.

    And what about the MPS Expenses Scandal Swindle ? They seems to be all Hushed
    Up it makes me Sick I Understand Well why I Despise the Oblivion Box of Television
    a Medium for Regime Propaganda and Moral Degeneracy

    It is the MP’S with £65,000 per Year plus Expenses and the ” Royal Family ” who
    are the Real Benefit Scroungers in their Ivory Towers of Luxury

    with the attacks on civil servants pensions, and jobs, i am very wary of this type of programme, it could be a forerunner for condems to say ‘this system isn’t working’ privatise it…the w2w providers can do the same job, cheaper, and more efficiently…not
