Ruthenasia II

Kudos should go to Labour's Double Standard blog for (almost) recognising the irony of Ruth Dyson presiding over the lowest beneficiary rates since Ruth Richardson's Mother of All Budgets in 1991.  (And kudos too to Ruthless Ruth Dyson for maintaining those low, low rates).

Blair Mulholland gives Sue Bradford the Dunce Cap for this revealing observation on the news:

The Green Party has accused the Government of running a "cruel and deliberate" benefit system that forces desperate people to find work...  "It was clear Labour believed the best way to motivate beneficiaries into paid work was to keep benefits so low that people were desperate to find work whatever situation they were in."

"Ooh do ya think?!" Says Blair. " OMG the cruelty!  Making people actually go out and find work!  Those bastards!"

Clearly Sue hasn't worked out the link between work and money.

I always wondered what would happen if the Unemployed Workers' Union decided to strike?

We'd all get a tax cut?
