Poor research by the looks of it - got two older guys mixed in with the debate over Tescos, etc. If the Tory MP had been bolder she could have rounded on Paxman for NN mixing things up.

The headline story is Greece/Euro but, per usual, NN fluffs it.
The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.


The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

I doubt it, just an older guy who is on a work programme.

It may be youth unemployment getting the media focus but it's probably as bad over 45/50, just not getting the coverage.

I wasn't keen on the swivel eyed loon in the middle. Nice chap i'm sure, but a bit overly invested in the conversation.

Not sure I would employ any of them.

Tesco's would never have to hire another paid worker, when they're being sent free workers.

In one move, politicians destroy even more jobs. Their stupidity is incredible.

Not only that, they fail the "Ford" test. The people working at Tesco will end up having to shop at farmfoods, unable to afford the products they spend all day working with and looking at.

From our point of view you are100% right

But the government's ,objective is to skew the unemployment figures ,just like Maggie done with YOP schemes in the late 70`s early 80`s

I could be wrong though perhaps they are trying to corner the world market in shelf stacking operatives`s

And just like NuLiebor did first with Blair's Education education education and then Brown's drives to to up qualify every job.

Politicians love gerrymandering and the press suck up to it :angry:

I know a lot of older guys (ex council etc) which some pretty decent experience qualifications getting themselves on NEA (New Enterprise Allowance) to avoid another round of shelf stacking roles at Poundland or listing stuff on Ebay for charities.
