I'd rather be doing 20 hours a week at minimum wage than sitting in the queue at the DHSS. So when I hear that foreign nationals are being brought in to fill jobs, it gets my blood boiling!

There was the first in a new series on the protection of vulnerable children from their own parents on BBC2 last night. I found it hard enough dealing with some of our scumbag tenants here, but these social workers are saints. I certainly could never have done their job, whatever they are paying them it's not enough.

Thatcherite values? Even Cameron and his mate Gideon know that's a loser.
You don't deny the social engineering though?
