When benefits and food banks just ain’t enough

I've been saying that for years.
That and if a disabled person can do a small part of a job for a percentage of the wage, and a firm can accommodate it, they should. Not to get cheap labour but to make people feel worthwhile.
That was the point of Remploy, as much as they've been the butt of jokes they did provide a useful service for people

But over and above that, someone could work in a normal place, for example blind telephonists, 'light duties' or working where counting or watching are more important than physique? Or part time/job shares if a person can't work every day.

Some jobs like nursing, firefighting, couldn't be included, but the law for example can be done with a brain and a keyboard. All those firms of Conveyancers should be able to help but no one does because the SJWs say it's demeaning. Has any of them asked a disabled person?
 
600 thousand motors? So that's one in ten of the UK population requiring these vehicles. WTF?
600,000? That's less than 1% of the UK population mate.
 
Simply not a problem.


What are “o” levels for if not smugly annoying CSE thickoes?
That would be the General Certificate of Education: Ordinary Level Certificate, with the "O" in Ordinary being capitalised?

This is where being an English teacher allows one to smugly annoy "O" Level "thickoes"................



There's always a bigger fish in the sea.

Some would say O levels were the exams you took before moving on to AS or A levels and then a degree :)

Of course, as many today wouldn't know the difference between an O level or CSE it's not really worth worrying about :)

Correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence composition is always worth worrying about.

Nail, on head, very firmly hit.

As I have described on other threads, my ex-sister in law (divorced from my brother in the late 00s), effectively retired the day she left school. She's huge - I estimate 19 or 20 stone - and suffers from depression, anxiety and a number of other disorders (which some family members allege are very convenient, however I edge towards giving her the benefit of the doubt).

Even getting a small part-time job would improve her sense of self-worth, she'd have some money in her pocket, her daughter would get the message about the value of work etc. It'd help her physical health as moving about would cause her to lose weight, and she'd interact with other people, which again would help her sense of isolation.

You know the beauty of this? There's a Tesco 400yds from her house, which constantly has the sign up saying "Vacancies - Please see Customer Services Desk and ask for Maureen" and she walks past this sign once a week to get her shopping on benefits day (or, as she calls it, with no sense of irony, "pay-day").

I know that there are entirely deserving mental health cases for whom every day is an indescribable challenge and I thank the Lord above that I've never found myself in that position. However, there are people around who can, and should, help themselves.

We had it with my missus, at one point she was too ill to work, so her work got rid of her as part of a restructure. Ok she's not disabled in the traditional sense, just her health condition causes a lot of complications

Down the job center they were quite helpful when she said she wanted to get back into work self employed initially part time and this lead onto to other work.

Ok she's not earning what she used to, but she's retraining into other areas in things she can do now

You can’t imagine how much I hate you now.
 
Fair shout (bloody pedants................); however, why have you capitalized "ARE"?
To make it stand out from the surrounding text as I don't know how to change colour. The typewriter ribbon won't lift up!
