LIKE so many other people I recently became unemployed and was pleasantly surprised to get a flyer through my door advertising a free 'Jobs Lost and Found' course offered by Longsands College.
It would cover topics such as preparing for redundancy, CV writing, interview skills. A few days before the course started I was notified that it had been cancelled due to a lack of interest (only two people were booked on the course).
With 2.5million people unemployed, why was this course not overrun by requests?
I attend the Jobcentre every second week and listen to people moaning about how the Government doesn't support them and how hard it is to find work.
Well, obviously they're not as keen to work as they claim else they would be at the course with me.
Why should my taxes be used to support people on the dole who refuse to help themselves?
