What the establishment wants us all to believe in their 100 days in office without their former bedroom partner (Libdems) The Conservative majority government has not wasted a day since it was elected. The prime minister said the government could travel quickly because it “helps to have one hand at the steering wheel”, rather than having to share the wheel with another party. He also likened the party’s manifesto to the Bible, saying ministers just had to refer to “the good book”.
Welcome to the capitalist world of the one nation conservatism in UK complements of the Conservative Party in their 100 days of Government. If you just happen to be young and unemployed then welcome to the boot camp courtesy of General Commander Iain Duncan Smith and Matt Hancock. One has a confession to make I like the idea of going to a boot camp for training but on my free will as nothing is worse than being force to attend boot camp. Now that I have got that out of the way it is said that confession is good for the soul.
What world does the establishment lives in at a guess it’s cloud cuckoo land. Remember one size does not fit all and it certainly does not meet the criteria of the DWP. There are many of us who lives in the real world in the year of 2015 and not 1950s when people were draft into the army like the United States of America which does insinuate that the young are work-shy, lack discipline, and criminals. Hey that’s okay the establishment will have us believe as they live in their mansions and get £65,000 per annum plus benefits, they can afford to send their sons and daughters to Oxford University and they will have a job in mom or dad firms as assistant director(s). Oops it looks like I’m hitting a raw nerve now.
I kid you not you will have to work in public with DWP logo on your uniform on your back cleaning duck houses, and anything that the commander chief tells you to clean up in the public interest. This because the force labor in places like Pound-land has been in the press and the commander in chief is running around like a headless chicken with his assistant trying to reinvent other ideas to gain votes for the Local Elections 2016 in the hope they will remain in power for a long time.
So it no wonder that young people on benefits will be forced to go to “boot camp” or face having their welfare stripped under draconian new government plans.
Those between the ages of 18 and 21 will be ordered to “earn or learn” under the plans revealed by right-wing paymaster general Matthew Hancock.
The Cabinet Office minister said young benefit claimants will be put “through their paces” as part of a three-week intensive “boot camp” from April 2017.
Expected to take 71 hours over the three weeks, the camp will include writing job applications and interview techniques as well as extensive job searches.
A dedicated work coach will also work with jobseekers to continuously review what young claimants have achieved during the initial three-week course designed to make them “work ready” within six months.
Failure to find a job, apprenticeship, traineeship or unpaid work experience after six months will result in their benefits being docked.
The harsh proposals also confirm the previously announced end to housing benefit for all under-21s.
Mr Hancock said that as chairman of the earn or learn taskforce he will create a “no excuses” culture to youth unemployment across government.
He added: “We are determined to fulfil our commitments to end the welfare culture that is embedded in some of Britain’s most vulnerable communities.
“By working across government to make sure that every young person is in work or training, by opening up three million more apprenticeships, expanding traineeships and making sure that a life on benefits is simply not an option, we want to end rolling welfare dependency for good, so welfare dependency is no longer passed down the generations.”
Hated Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith and Education Secretary Nicky Morgan will also sit on the task force.
Asked about disabled claimants, a Cabinet Office spokeswoman said: “We will put in place appropriate arrangements for vulnerable people with specific circumstances.”
It’s not very often I mention a Member of Parliament name so in the wise words of the Right Honorable Member of Birmingham Yardley(Jess Phillips) puts it so eloquently:
“A hand up is absolutely fine but a punishment for people who have no choices is the stuff of some sort of Russian Gulag.”
The Government’s new plan involves ordering young people aged 18 to 21 to join a scheme lasting three weeks, where they will be taught about applying for a job and interview techniques.
And if they are still unemployed after six months, they will be told their benefits will be axed unless they get a job, apprenticeship, or place on a training scheme – or agree to do unpaid work experience.
The Government announced the plans in a statement promising to create a “no excuses” culture to youth employment with a “boot camp” which will “put young jobseekers through their paces”.
The policy is to the forced labour camps in Communist Russia, known as Gulags.
“I would support anything that offers help to young people to get into jobs, because I believe young people want that support and need it.
“But the idea of a ‘no excuses’ culture shows the Government doesn’t understand the reality of people’s lives.
“If you are a carer, is that an excuse? If you are a young person who has a baby, is that an excuse?”
I feared the young people most affected would be those who had the most difficult childhoods.
“Are we going to make people who live off their parents go on this camp? So it’s fine to be unemployed as long as your mum and dad is paying for it.
“I want to see as many trustafarians going through this boot camp as kids whose parents for one reason or another had to rely on benefits.”
And highlighting plans to make young people do work experience, she said: “It seems like cheap Labour to me.”
Well I take no lessons from Iain Duncan Smith and his second in command Matthew Hancock when there are the average of £5 million salary of a top company boss is a staggering 183 times higher than that of full-time workers, a new study.
The typical pay for high-ranking chief executive officers (CEOs) jumped from £4.1m to £4.9m in just four years since 2010, research of FTSE 100 companies by think tank the High Pay Centre found.
The top 10 highest-paid CEOs collectively earned over £156m last year, which prompted campaigners to call for a curbing of disproportionately high senior wages.
High Pay Centre director Deborah Hargreaves said: “Pay packages of this size go far beyond what is sensible or necessary to reward and inspire top executives.
“It’s more likely that corporate governance structures in the UK are riddled with glaring weaknesses and conflicts of interest.”
Companies need to rebalance pay grades in order to fairly reward those who do most of the work, TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said.
Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said that CEOs should put money into creating more jobs and making pay raises for existing employees “instead of greedily hosing themselves down with torrents of cash.”
And non-executive workers’ pay is under close scrutiny as only a quarter of the FTSE 100 firms detailed in the report have been found to be paying the living wage.
Ordinary employees should be included in pay committees to add “some common sense” to a predominately “closed shop for an elite who are only interested in looking after their own,” Ms O’Grady added.
She continued: “With top bosses now earning 183 times more than the average full-time worker, inequality is reaching stratospheric levels.”
Regulations that were amended in 2013 to stipulate that British-listed companies have to publish pay details of their lead executives appear to have had virtually no effect in curbing excessive executive pay, the report states.
“It seems highly unlikely that the gap between CEOs and other workers will close in the foreseeable future,” it said.
The reforms, however, increased shareholders’ power to hold companies to account over wages but they have shown “little interest” in doing so, said the High Pay Centre.
