GORD IS STILL GOING TO SAVE US-NOT


BBC NEWS Our Gord has come up with his latest cunning plan.

He is going to safeguard jobs during the “downturn”- still too afraid to say “recession”.

Actually his cunning plan is not to safeguard jobs but to pay employers up to £2,500 for each person they employ who has been out of work for six months or more- “As part of the summit, Work and Pensions Secretary James Purnell will give details of a £500m scheme to help people who have been out of work for more than six months.”


“Union leaders at the summit will propose more training and job creation programmes, while environmental campaigners want greater investment in energy efficiency.”

I always thought that “safeguard” was to protect workers from LOSING their jobs, this piss poor plan is yet another fumbled attempt by Labour to “spin” their way out of trouble.

We are not that stupid Gord, if you are going to “safeguard” jobs then come up with another cunning plan that addresses that problem, not one that is doomed to fail.

Well from my point of view the government has been cutting our jobs for years and decimating public services. Then putting in bean counters to provide statistics rather than provide services. Oops! I nearly got into a rant there...
