Documentary film maker, Adam Curtis with an enlightening spot on Charlie Brooker’s 2014 Screenwipe. Highly recommended viewing.

Another great post from “Another Angry Voice”.
“In April 2014 the Tory led government introduced a new punishment regime for the unemployed called “Help to Work”. The scheme uses the threat of absolute destitution (via benefits sanctions) to compel the long-term unemployed into giving up their labour rights and working for no wage.”
In this article Thomas G. Clark outlines 12 significant criticisms of the scheme, and the misleading way it has been presented to the public.
If it’s one political blog that I enjoy reading; it’s Thomas Clark’s “Another Angry Voice“.
In an article, linked to below, “Another Angry Voice” sets out the case that a Universal Basic Income based welfare system would be a “massive improvement on the current punitive welfare bureaucracy in the UK”.
