  1. So IDS went and signed on. Put up with being treated as if you were an idiot and worse. Made to feel it was your fault if you lost your job because the firm you work for were laying workers off, made redundant
    because the firm has gone bust ( usually because of government policies). Tried living off unemployment benefit, which by the way if you have been working you have been paying for. I DONNOT THINK SO. HE HAS NO IDEA HOW THE UNEMPLOYED HAVE TO LIVE. MORON

  2. HE NEEDS AN URGENT REMINDER OF WHAT IT’S KIKE TO LOOK FOR WORK COSITTED IN THE GUARDS FOR YEARS HAVING TO BE OBEYED WITHOUT QUESTION HE LEARNED LITTLE OF THEIR ETHOS OF ONLY BEING AS GOOD AS THE LAST MAN

  3. In denial. Please tell us all what it is like, Mr Smith? Tell us what it’s like to have your money stopped, to be made homeless, to starve and then to die? The man is a complete and utter odious piece of work who insults the millions of us out here with his poisonous rhetoric.
