He considers those who oppose the government's back to work scheme as modern day Luddites.
As mentioned on this board before private companies such as tesco, Boots and Primark employ people to do non skilled work, such as shelf stacking for their jobseekers allowance & expenses.
As an illustration of how out of touch with reality he is he believes that people are against it because they find shelf stacking demeaning!!!
Does this pillock honestly think if jobs were made available in any of these companies in the North, even at minimum wage, they would not be inundated with applicants?
In an interview he even comes out with this shite "Meanwhile, we are caught in a battle between those who think young people should work only if they are able to secure their dream job".
He goes on "Anyone who is gulled by those who believe in the first path is in danger of creating a society with a twisted culture that thinks being a celebrity or appearing on The X Factor is the only route worth pursuing in life".
What a grade A prick.
Here's a link to the full interview.
