    Be great if you brought facts into your arguments.

    It is horrid. I worked there part time during Uni.

    It's a ****ing **** job and the people who say otherwise haven't done it.

    It is possible because some people are prepared to work unsocial hours and others do overtime. As for people looking for work, they are but only for jobs that suit them and not the ones they consider beneath them or too much like hard work. Which includes the food industry, pub trade, nursing, car washes etc which is why you see so many different nationalities doing these jobs. Only a select few, mainly pubsec penpushers, will get to work 32 hours for a living wage. Possible in manufacturing jobs, but expect prices to go up. But in service industries no chance.

    When you do, and not sweeping assertions.

    Except they do now more than ever after 9 years of Tory austerity.

    Yet for some reason people have far more sympathy for huge corporations like McDonalds having a pay their staff a bit more.

    Just been working on that, I was thinking £10.00 an hour for the 40hrs x 2 is £800.00 a week on wages.

    But now they get £400 for 32hrs x 2 and I need to pay 16hrs at time and a half £18.75 so my wage bill is now £1100.00

    On anything useful, not overblown rhetoric? Maybe one of those dissertations on football people regularly used to pop up on here asking for help compiling?

    When everyone is earning 20% less they won't be able to afford to go out for meals - or are you suggesting that business has to foot the increased wage bill as well as pay a 7% tax hike in corporation tax - the high street is already on it's knees - that would finish it off - Corbyns policies are designed for one audience only - those that believe that money grows on trees and that business and rich bastards should fund everyone else - once there is no encouragement to work and invest you stop doing it and you go elsewhere to a more forward thinking society which is why countries like Venezuela and Cuba are ****ed because no-one is prepared to invest any money there

    Read about that woman who won over £250,000 twice in a matter of weeks on bingo? Sob story about mother who couldn’t afford to buy food under Tory austerity now not having to worry. Turns out that the first win came a week after she deposited £100 in an online bingo account. Couldn’t afford food and going without but had £100 spare to play bingo.

    I can't be alone in reading your post and thinking 'I would've wanted the referendum to be binding and I didn't know it wasn't'.

    I thought I was very attentive throughout the whole debate, but I don't remember anything about it not being binding.

    What counts as useful in your world? Does it have to have a direct economic value, utilitarian?

    Don't really want to clog up the thread with this, but quickly, if you want compare education/academic output - you go first and let's do it quickly.

    You really need to stop reading/believing tabloids. You seem an unhappy man.

    So, what is your point? Your views are more valuable because you wrote a dissertation on the Spice Girls?

    So it wasn’t true? She was lying about not being able to afford food and lying about winning twice on the bingo?

    I was only joking and it was in response to Ric stating that I was asking stupid questions.

    But fair play.

    No pressure, no stress, no responsibility. Just let a bellend bosses ranting go in one ear and out the other for 4 days a week. Turn up to work do your bit go home and forget about it.

    Much easier than what I do now.

    Aren't food banks a charity, how are the Corbynistas going to ban charitable work? This worries me about Labour, are they going to reestablished a bloated benefits system that is attractive as a lifestyle choice like it got to under Blair/Brown? When they tax & spend to excess on welfare systems it drives working tax payers to vote Tory, taxation and benefits has to be seen to be fair?

    I just think you seem to place a lot of emphasis on 'information' tabloids tell you. You're whipped up.

    And even if she did, what does that prove? Is that damning evidence against the impact of austerity?
