Another one covered by our dear Lord Kitch and his , now infamous , Recruitment Poster.


We have run out of money.

The country is in crisis , social care is in meltdown , and my gold plated pension scheme is in deficit.

We need volunteers for the carers army.

Unsung heroes that have bailed us out for years.

Despite terrible conditions , hardly any pay , no prospects , nearly no support and no exercisable rights enjoyed by others , hundreds if not low thousands " Volunteer " for duty every month.

We need more ... otherwise the 40% tax rate may have to rise ...

It beats being unemployed even if we pay them more than you !

Age ? Not a problem. As young as 5 , as old as 95 , we take them all !

Disabled ? No problem , many disabled carers are already enlisted.

When you start to receive your state pension , we will , of course , cease to pay you Carers Allowance.

After all , we can't let you receive more than one " Benefit " can we ?

If you find any spare time while caring , why not find yourself some paid employment ? If you earn more
than £ 120 per week , no Carers Allowance will be paid , an 100% clawback.

Why not study to improve your future prospects ? If you spend more than 21 hours per week studying ,
we will , of course , not pay you any Carers Allowance. If any problems , we wil require written evidence
of your mode of study just to ensure that you are not pulling a fast one.

Why not be really patriotic and care for 2 or 3 ? Sorry we cannot afford to provide any extra rations.

We'll even tax some of you for having extra space in your homes. After all , we cannot afford to
increase taxes and loose votes , can we ?

For a few of the lucky ones who have fallen through the net , free meals are on offer from your local
food bank.

Even top ups for those prepayment meters that go round like catherine wheels whenever you put that kettle on ! And , if they spin too fast and catch fire , we send out the fire brigade at no cost to yourself !

No union. No representation. We have even gagged your supporting organisations.

Zero hour contracts ? There are no contracts in your gulag ..... sorry , world , to worry about.

Just keep caring until you drop. That's all we ask ... and expect from you.

Your time is now !

Trouble is , he is not kidding .... and never has been ?
Obviously , yesterday's news of a forthcoming general election throws a big spanner in the works as far as receiving a reply from my local mp is concerned.

For all mps , number one priority kicks in ... self preservation and loyalty to whichever party !

I'll resume posting on this thread as soon as any other news comes in.
Quick progress / non progress report.

21 Hour Rule ... progressing.

Carers Concessionar Travel ... posting but in limbo.

Everything else ... in limbo , review after general election.

Any objections ?

Just shout ... I'm your mere servant in anything on this thread.

Some extra rations wouldn't go amiss ... occasionly .... baccy , single malt , steak etc.
Early intervention can prevent the condition from worsening.
Very old thread locked for usual reasons
