Benefits Busted!

with 2 comments

Coming to your telly this Thursday on Channel Four. More free-publicity for A4e – one  wonders why not a even a tinsey mention of the mountain of allegations against them…


Instead of this programme’s utter cack  – a celebration of bullying by a bunch of chancers out to grind the faces of the poor (below) those interested in this murky world should look at this and this.


“Hayley Taylor’s job is to persuade single mothers on benefits to go back to work.

The company she works for, A4E, which is helping to tackle the Government’s target of getting 70 per cent of lone parents into paid work by 2010, is the largest welfare reform company in the world.

A4E is run by multimillionaire entrepreneur Emma Harrison, who believes her business is ‘improving people’s lives by getting them into work.’

Until recently, the 700,000 lone parents receiving benefit didn’t have to look for work until their youngest child was 16. Soon, they must either work, or be looking for work, once their youngest child is seven.

At Doncaster A4E, Hayley runs a course called Elevate that aims to give lone parents the skills and confidence to enter the workplace and convince them they’ll be better off doing so. Cameras follow her group of ten single mothers during their intensive six-week course to prepare them for work”


Seeing the advance clips we’d say Hayley is a  dead-ringer for Little Britain’s Marjorie Dawes,  the terrifying, pudgy, leader of weight loss support group Fatfighters.
