    UK: Cameron proposes cuts in benefits

    Looks like now the Brits will be forced to get up and go find a job. Good and courageous move by Cameron.

    But being on JSA is so fun! You have all the time in the world to do what you want and not worry about showing up for work. It is the British way!

    Not that courageous a move by Cameron. The changes are not proposed until after the next general election, probably in two years time.

    Amand. By the way, how are the final salary pension schemes doing? Still retiring at the age of 50?

    It's like the unemployment system in the US. Up to 2 years, 40-50% of wage up to a limit, can be denied for cause, or failure to look for work. Payments are bigger since min wage is twice as high.

    Wont pass the muster. He will withdraw like he always has. He is a eunuch.

    Despite his reproductive limitations, I still prefer Cameron to his Wallace and Gromit lookalike opposition.

    It is good if anyone can make the wastrels waggle their bottom and do a spot of honest work for their nation than live on doles!
