GUEST,Steamin' Willie BS: Conservative Labour camps (UK)? (55* d) RE: Conservative Labour camps (UK)? 19 May 11

Don't be absurd M'Unlearned friend.

They don't do anything to get you to the stage where words fail you. Mainly because they don't know you, and if they did would dismiss your take on life out of hand.

I am all for schemes that people can, voluntarily, be part of, especially in order to be doing something and keeping dignity up. It will always be an emotive discussion I know, but for every person who doesn't want to work, there are people who do and the cost, if based on minimum pay is not going to break the bank, especially as a large percentage comes back as VAT and duty.

However, if Leadfinger's prediction comes true, then you run the risk of demanding that those unfortunate to be out of work are seen to be chastised for being so.

Mind you, doling out jobs based on maintaining society infrastructure has its modern day origins in socialist states, not conservative ones. So the term conservative labour camps may be a nice play on words but I doubt it is a feature of any political dogma here...

Stop carrying those crosses, they don't suit you. Stick to conveyencing.
