8pm ITV Your Money...Your Life.

The effect of pension shortfalls on a range of families.

That's not on tonight, it's been bumped for some ASBO shite instead, but the Dispatches programme looks good.

Dispatches looks at one of the biggest surprises of the recession, middle class unemployment. As the number of people out of work reaches 2.5 million, Dispatches follows the experiences of several people who are desperately in search of a job, with some going to extraordinary lengths in an attempt to secure one.

Excellent. I'll be watching it.

It is indeed a terrible time for the middle classes. One minute they are moaning about spongers and how their tax is being used to finance the bone idle. Next thing they know, they are the bone idle spongers relying on our tax handouts.

Hard times. Presumably when they find work, they will start moaning about the spongers again.

Yep and they take a long, long time to find wok unwilling to accept that just because they were paid 40k to talk ******** at sales meetings or run a Windows network in Company X doesn't mean they're no more useful than an £18k first-jobber to Company Y.

Thus, while they think the unemployed working class should be frogmarched to KFC and forced to slave that's far too good for them.

Dead right. What an arrogant tw*t that Marketing guy is. His sense of entitlement is staggering!

And the fat Sales Manager who won't sell one of his BMWs is equally tw*t-like.

The only "normal" one is the 38 year old HR woman, who seems to have done well for herself, but (so far) remains quite down to earth.

is this a government information film or something. Some fat bloke wearing a gayboy golf club pink polo shirt and a 5 series, the most incompetent marketing director I have ever seen who can't market themselves, an HR director - really, she was a HR director, where a business with 5 employees ?

is this the best set you could find of all these hundreds of thousands of people... ?

Ah, 3 million pounds to look at cleaning jobs for people too idle to go on the net and find new jobs. Throw more money in the ring!

Set up an executive job centre! Employ more people into the public sector! Employment down!

Err... print more money to pay for it? Borrow more?

You know it makes sense.

Remember on the Beeny thread about Property Snakes and Ladders ? A lot thought Channel 4 would have trouble getting people to agree to go on - even if they ended up losing loads in the end ?

You still think that. :lol:

Many people think they are better than everyone else. They would happily go on these shows to prove to the World just how great and different they are. When in fact - they are nothing of the sort.

PS - This is also a channel 4 production.

I signed on about 7 years ago. Interesting experience. It was there that I came to the view that fat people always smell. But I digress... I agree with the general consensus that there are only homogenous jobs available. But you have to go in order to get the benefits.

Going to the porn shop.... there's an idea, though...

f*cking seminars....

hee hee hee! ;)

I like this post a lot - been watching it myself, and all I could see were a bunch of useless and quite thick idiots who had obviously grown used to consuming much much more than they produce. Can't say my cup was running over with human kindness. Felt sorry for Adam the graduate though.

Oh christ the unemployed bankers have just come on at the mentalist job hunter programme....'I wanna see some karate chops please!'

:blink::blink::blink::blink:

The utter ridiculousness of our 'economy' is becoming apparent to me now.

Maybe that fat tw*t should take his 5 series there - And these people think they have it tough? Jesus.
