No there will just be a lot of unemployed youth with between 0-6 months work experience rather than absolutely 0 work experience.

Labour's 1997 manifesto


Education will be our number one priority, and we will increase the share of national income spent on education as we decrease it on the bills of economic and social failure
There will be no increase in the basic or top rates of income tax
We will provide stable economic growth with low inflation, and promote dynamic and competitive business and industry at home and abroad
We will get 250,000 young unemployed off benefit and into work
We will rebuild the NHS, reducing spending on administration and increasing spending on patient care
We will be tough on crime and tough on the causes of crime, and halve the time it takes persistent juvenile offenders to come to court
We will help build strong families and strong communities, and lay the foundations of a modern welfare state in pensions and community care
We will safeguard our environment, and develop an integrated transport policy to fight congestion and pollution
We will clean up politics, decentralise political power throughout the United Kingdom and put the funding of political parties on a proper and accountable basis
We will give Britain the leadership in Europe which Britain and Europe need

This is more or less how it works in Germany, with the negligible difference that ze Germans can make anything work.

Gosh, reads quite well doesn't it?

No wonder so many people voted for them.

How many do you think they delivered on?

Why didnt they think of this when they first came to power? because it suits their agenda to have a lot of people depending on the state.
Having said that anything is better than not working at all.

"we will make the world a perfect place to live in"

Why don't they say "we'll do absolutely ******* nothing for four years".

Might be slightly less catastrophic than their insane, perpetual meddling and cluster****ing.

They did, they employed 600,000 more in the civil service. The tories are slowly getting rid of the excess by paying them off with Taxpayers money.

Its New Lie's reply to the workfare scheme failure, having helped to torpedo it.
Get em up in the morning and make em work for benefits.

This should have been done in 2007, it's too late now. Nothing is going to work now, we're doomed!

At my new gig you're pressured into offering coffee to the rest of the desk every time you make some for yourself.

This is Communism.

Seriously, I'd refuse to participate.

I fetch as many as I can. It's easy to earn a tenner in the time it takes to do a tea run. They made me a badge saying 'Tea Bitch' at one gig.

In USSR there were no unemployed people.

That's because it was criminal offence to have no job - in this country getting 3 points for speeding is criminal offence which gets you slap on a wrist, but in USSR criminal offence meant going to ****ing hard Siberian labour camp.

I did at the previous gig and there was genuine outrage for a while. Eventually people saw the benefits of my neoliberal beverage policies though and dropped their evil socialist ways.

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's tea."

This whole tea situation is remarkably similar to the 50p tax debate.

Because i might have to make tea for up to 8 people i never bother making tea because it's far too much effort. As such nobody really makes much tea and the tea economy dies.

This is the same situation to the 50p tax. Ambitious people can't be bothered to earn a lot of money because they're just give half of it away. As such the actual economy dies.

I'm with Robinho 100% on this. I make my own tea, when I want it, how I like it, and without the drag of having to make it for other people. Except Claire, I used to make her tea very occasionally, but she was the exception. Oh and Tracy a couple of years ago.

I appreciate getting away from the desk the regularly as well, it's healthy. I'm not going to join any of those bizarre little tea groups.

A long time ago at a ClientCo far, far away when I was coerced into the "tea round" culture, some wag gave me a Green Tea teabag along with the other standard orders.

He was not impressed when his beverage came back laced with day old milk.

One down, six to go...
