George Osborne – out of touch with rural unemployment

Andy Newman, Labour Party in Corsham High Street, ChippenhamThe Conservative chancellor, George Osborne, has announced that the unemployed “will be made to attend the job centre every working day”.

Has Mr Osborne any idea how impractical this idea is for people in rural areas, either unemployed people will be spending £25 or £30 per week on bus fares, or will be spending literally hours per day walking on dangerous country roads.

With around one million unemployed under the age of 25, the problem is not that our young people don’t want to work, but that there are not enough jobs, due to Mr Osborne’s failed economic policies
