http://www.directgov.gov.uk/en/index.htm

The DWP’s Job Search website is awash with Catalogue Distributing Jobs, as out of the 17 Pages of results for a search of Retail & Warehousing jobs about 5-6 of the pages were for Catalogue Distributing Jobs.

Many of the Catalogue Distributing Jobs say that they’re Full-time despite being commission only, so no guaranteed income and as the Jobs are advertised as Full-time there is no way to claim any Job Seekers Allowance meaning that there is no way that you can survive while doing this job that amounts to a Zero Hour Contract with no guaranteed income.

Sample Job Description & Details for a Catalogue Distributing Job

This listing for a Catalogue Distributing Job Vacancy states that there is excellent Commission & Bonuses, but as there is no Salary stated it means that this Full-time vacancy is reliant on building up a good client base and getting consistent sales if you’re going to make any money. Also this particular vacancy is advertised as flexitime it is basically a Part-time vacancy that the employer is telling the DWP that it’s Full-time.

These types of job are really impossible for anyone to sustain this type of job as a Full-time job as the only means of income, so ether needs to be done as a secondary job to top up your income.

These kind of Job vacancies shouldn’t be allowed to be advertised by the DWP as they aren’t a guaranteed form of income and will ether leave people on Job Seekers Allowance if the employer has advertised the vacancy as a Part-time one, or struggaling to survive if the employer has advertised the vacancy as a Full-time one.

Channel 5 Continues The Sustained Hate Campaign Against Benefit Claiments


Since the Government started it’s campaign of making people on benefits to look like lazy scroungers living a life of luxury on tax payers money there has been a string of Documentaries on the TV that are filmed in a way to back up this government propaganda.

Channel 4 started it all off last August  with Benefits 1949 , then Channel 5 continued this trend in October with On Benefits & Proud, Channel 4’s latest smear campaign against people on benefits Benefits Street started at the beginning of this month.

I got a flyer through the letterbox from Channel 5 looking for people on benefits to partake in a new Documentary that will more than likely be produced in a way that will paint the participants in the same light as the rest of these so-called Documentaries.

Channel 5 benefits program flyer.

These programs are probably paid for back handers of tax payers money as an incentive for them to be produced in a biased way that shows people who are on benefits to fit in with what the government has semi successfully brainwashed the non benefit claiming population into turning on the benefit claiming population of the country.

They are probably hoping that these benefits Documentaries will fully have the non benefit claiming population brainwashed into believing the deluded thoughts of the government & divide a nation that’s on its knees already.

The BBC has even joined in on this propaganda by reporting the false benefits statistics that has been spouted by Ian Duncan Smith for years.

One step further

The government has gone one step further with all their anti-benefits propaganda by pushing a bill through parliament that outlaws charities and local community groups along with bloggers from criticizing or opposing the government in the year leading up to a general election.

This new law doesn’t curb the abuse of the system by big business to get their own financial gain, and is one step in making this country a Dictatorship.

I can foresee the next step being that the general election will be rigged so that the Conservatives will win it, then they will push through a bill outlawing free speech at the start of their new term before forcing a bill through Parliament outlawing political opposition to the government, meaning that this mentally deluded bunch of snobs will be able to do what they want to ruin this country without anyone being able to say or do anything to criticize or oppose them.

Beware Of NatWest Bank


I’d like to say that everyone in the UK should Beware Of NatWest Bank, as I’ve recently run into them over charging on Interest & Charges. I had enough money in my Account to cover my Mobile Phone Bill along with the £5.89 Overdraft Interest charge, & a little left over to spend on my son.

This Afternoon I checked my Account online to see how much I’d got left only to find that I would be short for my Mobile Phone Bill as they had taken £22.76 of Interest & Charges which is a full £16.87 more than what my Statement of Interest & Charges says they should’ve taken.

I then try to query it via Web Chat only to find that it’s not available due to all of their operators being busy helping other customers. I then find them on Twitter and try to query the over charge that way. But they won’t help me unless I phone them, which I’m reluctant to do as it’s going to cost me money that I’ve not got to sort it out, & why should I have to pay to phone them to sort it out when it’s their fault not mine.

Now do I go to the Papers about this or the Financial Services Ombudsman or the Police as to me this seems like fraud as they’ve taken £16.87 extra of my money without any warning, as if they’d have pre warned me on my Statement of Interest & Charges I’d have known about it I’d have adjusted my spending to take it into account.

Is The UK Political System Just A Group Of Criminal Gangs?


Is the UK Political system just a group of criminal gangs that use the Parliamentary Expenses system as a way to Launder Millions of pounds of the TAX payers money into their own pockets, then they turn Communities on each other by making out that the unemployed people that in part have lost their jobs due to Government cuts in public spending as lazy benefits scroungers, & peddle false unemployment statistics, as well as push over worked Job Centre staff into suspending the payments of as many Job-seekers as possible to justify their claims that unemployed people are lazy work shy scroungers.

These Criminals then don’t stop there they then introduce benefits changes that could see the vulnerable people who the benefits system is supposed to help Bankrupt & homeless. While they are still allowed to screw this country over for every penny that they can get their thieving hands on.

Every single one of the thieving & lying criminals that the public have voted into a position where they are supposed to help and protect the people of this country should be all put under investigation for fraud, theft of public money as well as money laundering, then sacked & banned from Politics for life then locked up for a very long time.

Then and only then can the UK Political system be changed to stop the un-regulated expenses for MP’s and cut their pay down to a average wage instead of being £65,738.00+ per year to something in keeping with the rest of the UK say something like £12,000.00 per year with no expenses and having to commute from their Constituency home to London.

The UK, A Country Run By The Rich & Privileged For The Rich & Privileged


After reading this Blog post I thought I’d write one to air my views.

The Conservative Environment Minister Richard Ponsonby in August proved how all MP’s & politicians are up their own behinds by saying that the poor reconsider their buying habits and resist the temptation to spend more money on the latest electronic gadgets, clothes and food that they will not eat” in efforts to recapture the spirit of “make, do and mend”.

This comment just proves how out of touch with the none privileged population of the Country, as the poor of this Country can barely afford the food and clothes that they need without buying extra food and clothes that they don’t need. Also it was the privileged Conservative Government of the 80’s that encouraged people to buy the latest electrical gadgets by allowing manufacturers to make electrical goods that only last two years before they need replacing.

But then you can expect comments like this from Conservative MP’s that were educated at Eaton where they learn to only care about themselves. These rich snotty nosed people then only care that they are getting a huge wage from the Taxpayer to make themselves richer while they then claim expenses of the Taxpayer to then fund their extravagant lifestyle. Maybe if these people got a minimum wage and no expenses and made to live of that and their family millions they would learn that most people don’t live the extravagant lifestyle that they have been born into, when people like this have millions in the bank, why should the Taxpayer then have to pay them a huge wage (as of April 1 2013 the basic annual salary of an MP is £66,396.00 + expenses, which works out at £43, 157,400.00 + expenses) that the Taxpayer pays these already rich & privileged people to run the country on our behalf.

These people then raise Taxes, make up new Taxes & cut public spending so they then can make more money for themselves, and then have the cheek to brand the poor part of the population as scroungers for having to claim Benefits to be able to live due to the cost of living then increasing to favour the rich & the rich and privileged.

It’s about time that the average person on the street stood up to these rich and privileged people, but as they have the power to make new legislation to silence us it’s never going to happen. This Country is slowly turning from a Democratic Country to a Dictatorship.

Should Taxpayer Funded Expenses Be Scrapped?


After reading this BBC News Article about former Cabinet Minister Liam Fox successfully claiming 3p on fuel expenses for a 0.06 mile trip from a Concrete firm he had visited to a Constituency Surgery in Yatton within his North Sumerset base.

Now is it about time that MP’s all took a pay cut, then use the excess money from their pay cut to fund their expenses instead of getting a huge pay check from the Taxpayer, then claiming stupid expenses off the Taxpayer, also fuel expenses should be capped at a mile minimum or whatever the going rate of fuel expenses are for regular companies that pay fuel expenses.

Also why should MP’s be allowed to have a second home, they should be made to live in their Constituency then commute into London like everyone else that has a job outside of where they live.

How the hell the Prime Minister has got the cheek to brand people who are claiming benefits (especially the ones that have ended up needing to claim them through no fault of their own) scroungers when MP’s are the biggest scroungers of them all they do very little work for a huge pay packet that the Taxpayer funds, then claim expenses for their lifestyle choice, travel expenses for journeys so small most normal people would walk the distance & also have the cheek then to claim for their Constituency home while they spend most of their time living in London, or 5* Hotels during the Conference season.

No wonder the UK is going down the toilet when all these Privileged Rich people are living off Taxpayers money , while their secret family millions are sitting in the Bank making them even richer.

MP’s get given the title The Right Honourable [Insert Name] when half of them don’t know what being Right & Honourable is if it came up and bit them on their behind.

I ask you:

A) Is it Right & Honourable to have a huge pay packet & then have the cheek to claim expenses to fund their lifestyle when they have got money stashed away in the Bank what they keep a secret?

B) Is it Right & Honourable to make Public Sector Cuts that then make people redundant, then when Private Sector Businesses do the same thing meaning that there are even more people unemployed that it’s then hard to find a job. So that they then get branded Lazy Scroungers that are being funded to live an extravagant Benefits funded lifestyle?

Taking a more in-depth look at point B:

Adding up for all the Benefits for the average unemployed person or couple Job Seekers Allowance is only £225.10 a fortnight out of that you have to pay for Gas, Electricity, Water along with anything that is required, Food Shopping, Clothes Shopping, there then is a fortnightly none refundable travel cost to the Job Centre to sign.  There is then Housing Benefit (if you live in Council or Private rented accommodation) that varies depending on the full rental price of the property with a varying cut depending if you have 1 or 2 spare bedrooms (The Bedroom Tax) then Council Tax Benefit. If you own your own property you then lose the Housing Benefit.  So adding up the cost of living and deducting it from Benefit income there isn’t really enough to live this so-called life of luxury that the MP’s seem to think that people on Benefits live.

If these MP’s worked for minimum wage without expenses maybe they’d be better able to judge what it’s like for the average working person lives, also they should try living for up to three   years on just Job Seekers Allowance & Council Tax Benefit (as they’re Council Tax is more than likely Taxpayer funded) they would be able to see that this life of luxury that they claim people on benefits live is just a figment of their imagination, and that living on Benefits isn’t a lifestyle choice for many but just a way of life that they would like to be able to get out of if they were given a real chance.

Romanian Beggars Who Returned To Romania by tickets Funded By The Taxpayer Have ALREADY Returned To The UK


A group of more than 20 Romania baggers were rounded up in a raid by immigration officers at their encampment on Park Lane in London back in July have since returned to the country just weeks after being given tickets for flights & coaches back to Romania by the UK Border Agency and a taxpayer funded homeless charity.

This means that the taxpayer has basically funded a Summer Holiday back home to Romania for this group of Beggars.  But under EU Law the Romanians have a right to be here for 90 days after this time they need to be working, studying or self-sufficient, but sleeping rough and begging are grounds for removal.

The Home Office has  demanded that the European Commission tighten up EU laws.

The only sensible way to deal with this surely is for Britain to end its EU Membership before the restrictions in Britain on Romanians and Bulgarians, which limit them to certain jobs will be removed After January 1, as the taxpayer basically funding their Summer Holiday back to Romania through free tickets for flights & coaches back to Romania is a waste of taxpayers money that could be used to fund something that has a benefit to Britain as paying for Romanian Beggars to go back to Romania only for them to return weeks later is pretty much a waste of taxpayers money.

The One Thing That I’ve Enjoyed While Using Blogger


The One Thing That I’ve Enjoyed While Using Blogger is the lack of off topic and Spammy comments, but that’s probably due to the fact that I never got any comments while I was actively used Blogger due to the fact that I couldn’t get a decent amount of followers & viewers.

WordPress really needs to sort out its Akismit Spam filter as it’s awful at filtering out Spam from legitimate comments, as when I re-started using WordPress this morning out of 40 Comments that I’d got 3 were correctly filtered to the Spam folder and out of the 56 that were filtered to the pending folder approximately half were in correctly filtered as legitimate comments that I’d then got to sort through manually.

Does Game.Co.UK Have The Worst Customer Service Ever


After having to deal with game.co.uk Customer Service via email recently it got me thinking Does Game.Co.UK Have The Worst Customer Service Ever?

Normally I’d use the online chat feature to deal with Customer Service on game.co.uk, but when I needed to contact them with a question on Monday the website was down for maintenance so I used the email address that was provided.  I got a standard auto reply that CS would get back to me in 48 hours, so after not getting a reply back yesterday which was 48 hours after I emailed CS and I hadn’t received a reply from CS I emailed them again and got the same auto reply about them getting back to me in 48 hours.  I’m sceptical that I’ll get a reply from them tomorrow.

So my plan of action is to try the game.co.uk website and see if I can use the online chat feature, and beleave me I’ll be requesting the email address of a manager or CS Supervisor to complain about the poor service.

If getting on the website is a no go then I’ll Google for there registered address and send them a letter.

So in closing Does Game.Co.UK Have The Worst Customer Service Ever?

Facebook Makes Fun Of People With Cancer By Allowing Sick Group To Stay On The Site


Facebook has Insulted people with Cancer by allowing a sick page called “Cancer is funny cause people die” to stay active despite it infringing one of their own T’s & C’s.  The most that has happened is that they have been given two warnings and the admin of the page got away with slightly changing the name of the page.  The sick page has even been reported on by daily newspaper The Sun and yet nothing has been done about it.

Cancer is not funny it’s a serious illness and the admin of the page and it’s army of followers should all be ashamed of themselves for making fun of the illness and should also face criminal prosecution for discrimination.

But that is not all Facebook let the policing of its own T’s & C’s down as they to my knowledge only really enforce one.

I’ve once reported a user for making threatening comments to me on my wall and nothing happened & they were allowed to keep there account so that’s one of there T’s & C’s that they don’t enforce, but yet when I post a video of my Brother-in-Law and his friend dancing to Honky Tonk Man I get it removed for alleged Copyright infringement, but then when I try to appeal their decision I can’t because there appeal form needs to be digitally signed which is impossible to do without a digitizer and stylus to create the signature.

here is the Full Facebook T’s & C’s for anyone who has never taken a look at them.

It’s about time that the law unto it’s self AKA Facebook is allowed to die by all its users migrating over to Google+ and leave Facebook to the sick and twisted people out there that think making fun of a serious disease as well as making fun or insulting pages for other groups of people and say that a celebs that are alive are dead.  If Facebook aren’t going to police their own T’s & C’s then people should show their disgust at Facebook by moving there profile to a service that will not tolerate such abuse of T’s & C’s.
