What's that song say about 'Britons never ever ever' being slaves?
Who says irony is dead ...
As for leaving, you've been bused into central London from 4 hours away at 3 AM, trains and bus's aren't running, so what do you do? I suppose you could get a taxi which I'm sure is perfectly affordable to someone on the (soon to be lost for leaving) dole.
Calling it slavery is still just hyperbole.
Would you prefer indentured servitude?
I have no issue with people working to maintain their benefits if they have shown themselves consistently unable to find employment for a prolonged period. I'm even ok with the government paying to have unemployable people given work experience. If the poor babies have to do spend a couple of days in difficult conditions to get a taste of the shit you sometimes have to deal with at work, then I'm OK with that as well.
What I dislike is the way this allows the companies involved to fill positions without paying anyone, at a time when we need people with purchasing power more than anything else.
But Rodj, everyone knows forcing companies to pay a decent wage just results in them being crowded out of the market. Just look at how unemployment skyrocketed when the minimum wage was introduced!
The centrist position is the only logically tenable one. Everyone else is wrong.
So, eurozone encourages Spanish corruption reforms by giving the country buckets of money?

Contract stuff to Seraphina Amaranth.
"You give me the awful impression - I hate to have to say - of someone who hasn't read any of the arguments against your position. Ever."
It's awful that these guys have no place to stay while they look for jobs! Some one should be helping them out, giving them a home and some stability while they try to get their life together!
What? Stay at my place? Fuck no.
The situation for the youth in Spain is incrediably depressing. The ramifications for Spanish society due to the massive scale of youth-unemployment is going to be long lasting
Giving the Spanish a 100 bn euro freebee with no strings will go down real well in Athens & Dublin. If Spain can get free cash without the conditions, why can't they? I expect "renegotiation" to be the buzzword of the week.
spain's gdp is nearly 3 times that of greece and ireland put together. i suspect "do one" will be the words coming from the eu should "renegotiation" become the buzzword of the week.
