The Employment Related Services Assosication (ERSA) have booked a luxury four star hotel as the venue for this year’s tax payer funded workfare conference.
ERSA are the trade body established to lie on behalf of graping welfare-to-work firms like A4e, G4S and Seetec. These companies are paid billions of pounds to run the shoddy ‘back to work’ type training courses and workfare schemes now inflicted on unemployed and disabled benefit claimants.
Much of that money goes on glitzy back-slapping affairs like this year’s conference on December 1st which is due to be held at the luxury Radisson Blu Portman Hotel in Central London. Here delegates will meet with politicians such as Esther McVe and discuss how to shovel even more money down the drain in the name of bullying people unable to find work.
Claimants themselves are not invited to the one day conference, with some tickets for the day long event costing as much as £450 – the equivalent of about seven and a half weeks unemployment benefit. The official theme for this conference will be ‘All Change? Preparing for the General Election 2015’. What they really man is let’s talk about how we can scam the next Government as much as we have this one.
Joining McVey as a speaker will be Mayor of Newham Robin Wales, preusmably taking a break from his ceaseless work harassing, insulting and evicting homeless single parents like the Focus E15 mums. Rarely will so many twats have been gathered in one place.
As such is seems only fair to warn the hotel’s customers who they will be forced to share a building with on that date. You can tweet the Radison Blue Hotel chain @RadissonBlu or use their facebook page to tell prospective customers what to expect on December 1st.
