I am currently running a group called Justice4jobseekers.


We aim to help highlight the damage done by the current tyranny that laughably calls itself a government to those who are affected by unemployment and more specifically,

the draconian and unfair changes to the benefit system.


In time, we want to organise protests and other action across the UK.


For now, we need to get the word out that we exist.


Please offer your support by joining my page on facebook. You can find the link in my profile.



Your help and support will be greatly appreciated.

Good luck but sorry I think your group is missing the point, at least politically.


This country is not run by this or that government but by the banking system. Take for example the Governor of the Bank of England, who has been put there by Goldmann Sachs, same as the Governor of the European Central Bank and many Prime Ministers in Europe.


It's because the banking system is not allowed to default that the vulnerable in this country, the poor, the sick and the unemployed, have to pay the bill for them.


If the big banks and the housing market were allowed to default, there would be no need for austerity measures. People would be able to buy houses at an affordable price, small companies would be able to employ and there would be less unemployment and less bashing of the poor. My opinion for what it is worth.

Heya San,


No, I haven't missed the point. I agree fully with what you are saying. I have known for some time now that our political system has been hijacked by the corporations and super-wealthy and in an ideal world I could fight all aspects of that situation but sadly, my time is limited and I can only do so much.


One thing I do know is that many on jobseekers allowance and other benefits, espceially where I am, do not have a voice to speak on their behalf. They are put through the mill of benefit reform, getting their benefit sanctioned for trivial reasons and are still expected to jump through hoops with their jobsearches as so to avoid another benefit sanction, which is a bit silly because if you have no money, are not eating and worried about where the next meal is coming from, then how can you satisfactorily be seeking work? Postage stamps cost money. Bus fares costs money. Petrol costs money. Many aspects of looking for work costs money.


I would love to take on the might of the puppet masters behind the government but I have chosen to speak up for those who are often on the bottom rungs of the ladders in society.


Thanks for your reply. It is refreshing to see others can see what I see and that I am not alone in my own observations.

Being honest, I'm pretty sure there's no need for austerity measures regardless of whether or not the banks are allowed to default. Even the IMF have finally admitted that austerity is damaging and makes the economy worse.


Facebook groups and protests let people know that they're not alone in seeing the injustice and wanting to do something about it. There are many groups that are slowly coming together and getting things done. There's a lot going on all across the country and one day soon people will look back on what's happening today and realise that there was actually a revolution in progress.

There is a vacancy for a modern day Watt Tyler. You sound like a good candidate, so I'll check out your facebook page. I see what you see. I personally think everybody (EVERYBODY) should put down what tools are still available and show these idiots that enough is enough. Oh I hear you say, what about the hospitals, the elderly, the police, the fire brigade? So what? Let the bloody govt have a real issue to contend with for once.


I do not want to continue to watch children being further deprived, people being beaten up financially because there is no work, being forced out of life long homes because they have one extra bedroom, being left to rot in their homes because the care is being withdrawn.


But most of all I hate to see one part of society being set against the other in our country. Right at the start of his reign (Cameron, I don,t mention the other fool, waste of breath) he went after our Forestry Commision, remember? And he was swiftly and firmly smacked down by the public. This was an important issue, of course. I would now like to see the same united front with all the other little "Cameron issues" that are actually causing PEOPLE to die.

I hope you are not taking too much notice of other peoples negativity. I think the site is a good idea. I recently had an issue but they had interpretted the guidance incorrectly. If you are going to be sanction in the first week you loose benefit for that week if it is in the second week you can be sanctioned for three weeks. Then they mislaid all my new claim and hardship forms. After 4 weeks they overid the system and just credited my account!!
