Emma Harrison Versus Ray Lewis: Get a Real Job, Please.

Call me a cynical, bookie-booze-all-day, sofa-telly-glued, chips-with-everything, 40-stone-idler.

But wasn’t the Harrison-Lewis show last night dire? (site here)

Okay the Emma character got someone – that is, yes,  one a job.

All power to him.

The real star, Emma,  got to speak about holding people’s hands. Which was all very sweet.

But the spectacle was all about the duel of the dullards: Em and Lew.

Lewy gave a bad impression of  Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction), threatening fire and brimstone all round.

The main interest in the programme was on which of these moral titans would “win”. The unemployed were their cards. Em, won.

Er, that was it.

  3. Thank the Gods and Goddesses for people like you.

    I watched the programme with considerable interest and a bottle of cheap plonk. I have to say I felt a warm glow at the sincerity exhibited by Ms Harrison (or was that just the fag burning down in the ashtray??). Friends, I have seen the light. All I need to do to secure a suitable job is employ the services of a Channel 4 film crew and invest in the most appalling shade of lipstick that even my local market would be ashamed to stock!

    Shame on Channel 4 for giving her airtime.

  6. Just heard David Cameron’s plan to make Britain Great Again is to get us all jobs in the Tourist Industry.

    What a total waste of time the tourist Industry is, min wage jobs for a few months of the year with expolititive going nowhere employers.

    Ironicly Cameron has revealed his answer to all our problems on the first day of The Lowestoft Air Display which will see our council wasting European Grants meant to help rejuvinate depressed areas on an utter waste of time tourist event that puts next to nothing back into our local economy. In fact rather than boost sales most local shops close down as there sales dip so badly that its not worth opening those days as nobody goes in to the town centre as everybody is either at the seafront watching the display or avoiding Lowestoft becouse of the Air Display Traffic Jams.

    Due to much of the high cost of the Air display falling on local council tax payers out of the thousands of free booters who attend this event were asked for a voluntary contribution of a minimum of £1 each but the total worked out afterwards at something like they just contributed 10p each which is appalling, then add that to money lost for local town centre shops and you realise what a white elephant tourism is.

    If Tourism is so great how come Cornwall is one of the poorest places in England?

      • Cameron is an absolute wanker!

        He is only saying this because Germany is predicted to be in Chinas top 10 destinations…

        Something he has forgot is, whereas most people are proud they axed the plans for airport expansion… tourism and international business RELIES on airport industry.

        I am not too sure how close to maximum capacity the big airports are at but if the airports isn’t adequate enough for a large increase in tourism – it is either a huge infrastructure problem with even more unreliable transportation system which will frustrate and discourage oversea tourists OR they will displace other tourists to make room for others… I am deeming that racism.

        I believe in running our own country. I believe its important to see what works and doesnt work in international politics and local policies.

        So why are we the embarrassment of the world by having a completely outdated in parts and poorly run in all others, governance system, stepping up to some country which has always been strong in dealing with its economy, saying we can be as good as them?!

        We cant. Not how things are right now. We dont even have a stable Government… one moment Cons and Lib Dems are mating, the next… deputy PM has an outburst saying the war was illegal (which I admire but they are supposed to work together – not contradict each other!).

        Only the UK could win 2 world wars, and still lose… but then again Germany are just as much deep in the shit as we are in the EU… other than they pay in more money for EU membership… I guess thats some consolation.

      • How does an increase in tourism fit in with the “Green Agenda”? Surely the two are mutually incompatible. Or is it just the UK that is “going Green” in order to service the needs of rich Chinese tourists?

        August 12, 2010 at 3:26 pm

    • Interesting. Government should not dictate where jobs are created although they should support industries in different ways such as tax breaks etc.

      Seriously there are so many beautiful places around the UK the only major issue regarding tourism in the UK is the weather being unpredictable lol – This means the only oversea tourists we will get are those who are sightseeing or visiting for a specific interest or purpose – and not for a general sunny holiday.

      The problem is… it costs just as much or more for a UK holiday than going to many European destinations.

      Tourism… like you suggest is seasonal. Not just summer or restricted to that time of year… but jobs are not sustainable if you have permanent jobs with people signing on for a few months every year.

      The main problem is no British business really understands volume… sometimes selling products and services cheaper can yield more money than selling them more expensive with less people buying them.

      If there is money to be made via Tourism in the UK the business will opt for maximum exploitive prices… the only thing lowering the prices is competition. In this decision they determine the likelyhood of people going to the next business.

      (For example: 2 business selling the same products… if the competitor is visible they are more likely to reduce prices or at least both match each other. If the competitor is quite some distance away they are sticking a premium on convenience by keeping prices high knowing that many people would not venture to the competitor… where consumers are likely to choose the business closest to them which depends what end and direction they are travelling)

      Taxation is typically a fixed percentage, other overheads do exist, but there is no real reason that justifies such prices.

      • Unless the Government is going to spend HUGE amounts of money sorting out run down places like Great Yarmouth, Felixstowe etc. then this pro-tourism isn’t going to work.

        No private business will invest multiple millions of pounds because doing up part of a resort with no demand hoping to create demand isn’t going to work unless demand is created throughout most resorts.

        Then there is the weather issue… and the fact that beaches etc. already get packed just from the population fleeing the towns and cities to get to the sea.

        Tourism increasing for green areas will only fuck up the beauty of them. Criminal damage, thieves, litter, fly tipping and arson etc. – most of it wont be the oversea tourists. When you exploit the commerciality of nature… someone comes along and spoils it for everyone else. Sometimes the best spots are the unknown places that not many people go to or know of.

      • It would be cheaper to just run a white flag with “Losers” up the Lowestoft town hall flag pole than host this seaside air display farce.

        We had this air display for years over Oulton Broad and nobody bothered about it. Then after some bad crashes over land at air displays the government orderd that the displays could only happen out to sea, que Lowestoft moving its Oulton Broad Display to over the North Sea instead, and a load of other loser depressed coastal towns like Clacton and Southend getting in on the act with their own air display (which is the exact same one as Lowestoft’s just on different days moved down the coast.

        In fact to make things worse for our local town centre shops (not only do they take no money as I described in my earlier post) But the air display stalls that turn up selling stuff arn’t local but a buy on arrangement of traders that follows the air display round locations.

        The tourism industry is dead and gone (and I speak from experiance as an ex-Great Yarmouth market trader) In fact Great Yarmouth council have refused to spend money helping their holiday industry as they say its a lost cause that only generates temporary min wage employment, they also point out that the Holiday Industry Barrons made fortunes out of Great Yarmouth in its good old days and if they wan’t the good times back they should have given something back themselves so if they wan’t a revival best they pay for it themselves.

        A big problem is outside people can’t differentiate between holliday makers (which unfortunatly are a thing of the past and ended with the closures of the midland and scottish factories and the loss of skilled manual jobs) and day trippers which are a total waste of time, flock to free events like the Lowestoft Air Display, wan’t everything for free and even refuse to make voluntery contributions of just £1 for an entire days entertainment for a family. Day trippers even bring their own tea and sandwichs to avoid spending money.

        Yet Lowestoft probably the most depressed town in Suffolk gets to pick up the bill for all this.

      Food prices up 58%: With many facing a freeze on wages, the cost of groceries has rocketed since 2007

      Shoppers are paying up to 58 per cent more for basic grocery items than they were three years ago, according to figures published today.

      The price of tea has shot up by 30 per cent while the cost of staple foods such as bread and eggs have risen by 18 per cent since 2007.

      But the biggest increase has been in the price of rice and pulses such as lentils or beans, which have risen by 58 per cent.

      Figures compiled by the price comparison website mySupermarket.co.uk show that parents with young children are also being hit particularly hard.

      The cost of baby wipes, creams and bath wash has risen by 38 per cent. Baby food and snacks have gone up by 21 per cent while baby milk and drinks have increased by 29 per cent.

      Even pets are proving to be an increasing drain on families, with dog food up by 20 per cent and cat food rising by 13 per cent.

      The soaring prices are in contrast to the overall inflation rate, which is currently 3.2 per cent a year.

      Britain’s high food prices are also at odds with many of our European neighbours, who have seen their grocery bills fall steadily over the past year.

      The mySupermarket research does not quote prices for individual items. Instead, the researchers selected a basket of supermarket items for each food category from Tesco.

      hey then divided the total price by the number of items to give average prices and compared their results for 2007 and 2010.

      The statistics show the same worrying trends as the Daily Mail’s Cost of Living Index, which in January found that the cost of a basket of the most commonly bought foods had increased by 7.5 per cent in 12 months.

      Experts say UK food prices have surged above the official rate of inflation because of worries about the financial uncertainty in the face of drastic public spending cuts.

      Nervous shoppers are concentrating on buying essentials rather than luxury items, which is pushing up food price inflation.

      Jonny Steel, of mySupermarket, said: ‘While prices generally have stabilised or even gone down over the past year, the cost of everyday essentials has still dramatically increased in the last three years. ‘

      Consumers may feel they are starting to bounce back from the effects of the recession, but the battle to save money is still very much on.’

      The price of bread, pasta and many processed foods is likely to rise further after Russia announced a ban on the export of wheat. Analysts believe Britons could soon be paying 15p more for a loaf of bread.

      Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin said it was necessary to protect his country against wheat shortages following a severe drought which has ravaged crops.

      Melons, kiwi fruit and olives are being grown commercially for the first time in the UK because of warmer summers and improved farming techniques.

      Stephen McGuffie is growing cantaloupe melons in Lichfield, Staffordshire and his first crop is expected next month.

      They are due to be sold by Marks & Spencer. Kiwi fruit is being grown near Canterbury, Kent, on a large scale and they are expected to be sold in the high street when the plants mature in a couple of years’ time.

      Mark Diacono has planted 120 Italian olive trees on his farm near Honiton in Devon, and hopes to produce olive oil.

    it is no good blaming those who are unemployed/taking it out on the sick and the disabled when the plain truth clearly lye’s with the policies of magaret thatcher and the devastation wreaked.it is often said the aftermath is the worst and this is very true. the legacy is the uk’s economic/social shame,devastation would not be an incorrect term.the abuse of those who have fallen victim of all this is untold in the account of lives affected,areas devastated and the abuse of the welfare state when it suited them,ether making cuts or manipulating the system to counter long term employment.
    while documentaries’ can give an insight,giving those who have financially benefited from the cogmire of misery is totally obscene for viewer time,no amount of spin.pr or any other term will reverse these trends’.the service economy has no backbone for strength or living standards all that has happened is that an influx has occured from those who favour “weighter” style “jobs”.

    • Well said Ken,

      Lets have a think about unemployment blackspots for a moment, they are created by governments not residents and are down to a failure of sucessive governments. They came about becouse the area relied on just one industry and when it was allowed to decline the government turned its back on the people who lived there though it was only too happy to take their tax money when their now unemployment blackspot was a boom town.

  23. it appears that internal bickering has broken out in the lib-dems,what this underlines is the deep division that has been created in the uk political landscape.policies that have sen many thrown on the scrapheap have all become an embarrassment to those now facing awkward and it has to be said truthful questions’,and the unworkable ideas’ that contain nothing to tackle them.social deprivation and exclusion is in many ways a tornado that’s swirling and getting bigger all the time taking peoples lives and hopes with it,the conservatives have begun a campaign against those that are a victim of misfortune and opportunity deepening problems and solving none.

  24. One would hope that when the tories really start (start?) to overstep the mark regarding the treatment of the unemployed etc, the lib dems will speak up.

    Hmmm?

    They are not a true coalition, they are two parties ‘forced’ to ‘work’ with each other.

    Oh the irony.

    Oh dear
