I fail to understand. by raistlin

I was watching a recorded TV programme this evening, in which a lively, sparky young woman, who was close to completing her training and becoming a qualified motor mechanic was told by the DWP that if she continued on the training course instead of "actively seeking employment" she would lose her benefits.

Result? loss of a motor mechanic and another person forced into reliance on the state.

Did I misunderstand? Or is this the way our administration is saving the tax payer's money and encouraging people to work rather than live on benefits?

Complete and utter madness! :evil:

Sadly any "Common Sense" has now been replaced by more reliance on "Political Correctness" and "Diversification" :(

The people who run these Departments need a kick up the backside and need to worry more about using common sense! :evil:

Sadly, unless there's a major sea change in Government (unlikely) decisions like this will continue, as the Employment Advisor is simply following a set of guidelines, that has no flexibility or common sense attached to it! :(

What was the programme Paul? Just thinking that the media love to give their version of a story without providing the full facts; been involved with a victim of media hype and dramatization ourselves very recently????
