Jobless figures

Osborne's cuts will leave around 750,000 people unemployed. At the same time he is cutting welfare benefits and planning to move around 200,000 people claiming ESA onto Jobseeker's Allowance.

So let's see: jobs down by 750,000. 750,000 plus an additonal 200,000 forced to look for work = 950,000 people looking for jobs.

Is it just me or does this just not add up? Where are these jobs going to come from? The 'coalition' expects the private sector to fill the gap left by the losses in the public sector. 750,000 of them? And we thought they had no sense of humour.

And meanwhile the root of the problem, the bankers, reap their rewards and ignore the rest of us.
