Even though she has been the Minister for Equality for a while now it’s still relevant.
"Disgusted at everyone saying we should have a party the night Thatcher dies. We need to wait 3 nights at the grave with stakes first."
Some people don’t think Margaret Thatcher should have a state funeral. I do. I think it should be open coffin. We need to be sure she’s actually dead.
The Tory and tabloid attitude to getting a job no matter what, even if there ostensibly aren’t enough to go around reminds me of an anecdote my sister told me about university.
During a photography project she arrived to set up the exhibition space a few minutes late and there was no more mounting space at which point the tutor told her ‘well if you’d got here earlier you’d have got a space’ which led her to think ‘but then someone else would be without a space’.
If there were 20 people on the course there should be enough space for 20 people. Even if everyone walked in the door simultaneously, bang on time, someone would have to go without in this bizarre system.
As with job hunting, people should not be punished and labelled as ‘lazy’ for not ‘finding’ a job when there aren’t enough jobs to go around, even if everyone tried really really hard, went to 10 interviews a day and sent (*vomit*) flowers to their interviewers there would still be loads without a job because there just aren’t enough.
