Jobless who refuse work will lose benefits for up to three years

As a loyal Independent reader and keen supporter of Labour Party initiatives may I suggest the following policies:
  1. Outsource all manufacturing to low wage economies...
  2. Subsidise single parents and extend the definition of disability to free 5 million from the trouble of getting out of bed in the morning...
  3. Subsidise private landlords so they can charge what they like to accommodate benefit claimants, driving up rents for those stupid enough to pay market rates.
  4. Transform an obsession with virtual violence into a positively cool form of art and entertainment and dismiss any naysayers as isolated reactionaries (Make war, not love).
  5. Spread more fear about peadophiles...
  6. Spread more fear about terrorists....
  7. Subsidise irresponsible procreation...
  8. Subsidise irresponsible consumption...
  9. Deregulate gambling...
  10. Have everyone diagnosed with a psychiatric condition to keep them under control.
I could go on, but you get the picture. We live in one of the least sustainable and productive countries in the world. Send the unemployed to till the land and let all NewLabour's newcomers return to their homelands to rebuild their own communities.
