    The short sharp Shock Doctrine of Workfare:

    This is why the govt is doing this.

    “The best way to resist shock is to know what is happening to you and why”.

    DWP and Government well and truly caught out. Serious action needs to be taken to hold them to task on the sanctions targets.

    HEY EVERY ONE look what I found !!!! from a BBC document..it seems that Iain Duncan Smith is familiar with walthamstow JCP why?? because he has been there !!


    “Iain Duncan Smith describes welfare reform as his “mission”. But it is a mission which he is now having to pursue in the teeth of an economic blizzard blowing the other way.

    The problem is the lack of jobs for people to take up. A situation only likely to get worse as public sector job cuts begin to bite and more graduates come on to the labour market.

    So to find out just how just tough it is to find work, I went with the work and pensions secretary on a visit to the Walthamstow Jobcentre Plus, in north-east London.

    What quickly became clear was that the people here were hardly the workshy or unemployable.

    Many were skilled workers, with good employment records, decent CVs and little, if any, previous experience of unemployment”

    “The YMCA are one of the greatest apologists for workfare and can’t even properly advise young people of their benefit sanctions rights.”
