Pug-faced little twat Jamie Oliver has been whinging that he hasn’t been sent a workfare slave yet, despite signing up to the Work Programme a year ago. This follows on from celebrity chef Michael Roux singing the praises of workfare on BBC’s This Week recently.
It seems that these multi-millionaires have decided they are too tight to even pay minimum wage to the people who wash up in their kitchens. Perhaps they should pay themselves less if they can’t afford to pay their staff properly.
It raises the question of how many more people are undergoing forced labour in London’s top kitchens. Luckily this should be easily nipped in the bud. The Pledgebank website will be able to help:
“I pledge that if I am forced to work in a celebrity chefs kitchen for no pay under threat of benefit sanctions then I will spit in the food, but only if 25 people will join me. Actually I’ll do it anyway, but it would be nice if other people join in.”

Pledgebank don’t have the best sense of humour and may remove it, so be quick.
Any posh bastards reading remember this next time you go to a swanky restaurant. Check first that they don’t use workfare, or who knows what might end up in your dinner.
And tell Jamie what you think @jamieoliver
