Get Bri­tain work­ing!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SOME news­pa­pers are all too ready to run down their fel­low Bri­tons.

The job­less are branded “work­shy” while well-fed com­men­ta­tors in their Lon­don ivory tow­ers pro­nounce that mil­lions of “scroungers” are “happy” to live on “lav­ish” ben­e­fits.

Here at Mid­week Sport, we know that is BOL­LOCKS!

Of course, there are idlers in the vein of Jim Royle off The Royle Fam­ily or Frank Gal­lagher from Shame­less.

But we know – and ev­ery sen­si­ble per­son in the coun­try knows – that the vast ma­jor­ity of un­em­ployed peo­ple are DES­PER­ATE for work.

Hus­bands and fathers would like noth­ing bet­ter than to pro­vide for their wives and fam­i­lies.

But if the jobs are not there, what can these men do?

When Land Rover – a huge British suc­cess story – de­cided to move their Mersey­side plant to 24-hour op­er­a­tion, more than 30,000 peo­ple ap­plied for the 1,000 jobs on of­fer.

That is NOT a lazy work­force. It is a work­force that WANTS to work.

The time has now come for the gov­ern­ment to ev­ery­thing in its power to stim­u­late the econ­omy and get peo­ple into work.

Ev­ery per­son on the dole is a waste of the coun­try’s hu­man re­sources. Ev­ery fam­ily with a job­less head is not reach­ing its full po­ten­tial.

Cameron and Os­borne – rich boys with lit­tle knowl­edge of the real world – should think again about their eco­nomic di­rec­tion.

This is no time for po­lit­i­cal dogma.

It’s time to get Bri­tain work­ing.
