Local Conversations in Oulton

It occurs to me, that all the talk and threats of changes to the benefits system, ignores the fact that unemployed people whether by misfortune or by their own laziness, are perfectly capable of doing something. We know jobs are not easy to come by, yet there is so much work needing to be done. Our streets and countryside are awash with litter and general rubbish, and I can`t think of any reason why any recipient of unemployment benefit should not be asked to do at least one day a week clearing up.
Whatever their status it should not be considered to be degrading to help to keep our country tidy and to at least earn a part of their benefit payment.
The same applies to prisoners, although they would need to be supervised more.
I can hear the Health and Safety gurus holding up their hands in horror.
