    From that article

    “Next they face 13 weeks of compulsory work for “voluntary” organisations for an extra pounds 10 a week”

    If workfare of today involved charitable organisations et al, I may be for or if it allowed for people to arrange their own work experience but it doesn’t, it’s forces people to do free labour for big corporations who are using it as a cheap state funded workforce. Nobody is arguing about the principle of work experience, the protests are because big companies are being allowed to take the piss at everyone’s expense with it.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
