The wasted RASCC

Well as Deano got these working for me ive decided to post something that happened to me today that had me between fits of laughter and just downright disgust.
Today after the last few weeks of hard work re decorating my house decided to just pretty much laze about and have a easy day after a quick lunch and a el credito that arrived today i decided to pull out a RASCC and just enjoy the next hour or two relaxing in my (our if my girlfriend is around but shes a completely different story) shed which ive kitted out quite nicely its still not insulated but ive got a small speaker system and my laptop in there pretty much permanently so the nabours get a wake up call with Within Temptation and i settle down and start watching HOUSE and browsing sky news (short attention span with the new HOUSE season not enjoying it much).
First half of the RASCC went well as usual a nice earthy brooding little bitch but in now way harsh just a dank but pleasant smoke that goes well with a wake up coffee and havana club 7.
Then it hits me on sky news there's a article about the guy i love to just hate i get the fact that most people in government are clueless so i dont generally give a damn but Ian Duncan Smith just gets me worked up after having to experience the hardship of looking for a job and the total dis honour of having to clam benefits at a job centre plus Christ the only plus about that place is how easy it is to fiddle the system if you really didn't care.
So now ive forgotten about the RASCC and im just focused on what this nitwit is ranting about now and oh its a good one this time IMO pretty much just crying about people not accepting his brand of slave labour. Now after being on benefits for a few months before i realised i wasn't going to get even a shred of help of the lowlifes that work there at job centre plus and instead all i get is belittled and looked down upon like im some kind of small fury rodent because im out of work i just told them where to stuff it and i went and did everything my self and i got myself a decent job decorating again and im now once again self employed.
And thats pretty much the first part what mr smith is saying and i have to agree with him here nothing is going to come to you if you dont look for it sitting down hoping wont get you a job actively looking for one will but thats where my agreeing with him ends and the refusal to go about telling people who refuse to do a 30 hour a week job for £50ish (if your VERY lucky) a week and then having to go through the utter nightmare of trying to claim back expenses that you prolly wont even get and then calling them "job snobs who are unwilling to do a hard days work" is just total bull in my eyes.Firstly how are you ment to live on £50 or less i had to resort to moving back in with my folks as even the cheapest rents in my area are £80+ and then working 8 weeks for a job you prolly wont even get oh boy.
First from what i remember that £50 is the upper end on what you can get and you will only get it if you are very lucky and meet a certain set of rules and regs or then there is claiming back expenses aka spending several hours trying to explain your expenses just to be told NO even with scheduled job interviews given by JSP staff that you MUST attend its hard enough to claim back your travel expenses and if you cant afford to make it to one and miss it well your benefits are removed for 2 weeks.
Now if Mr smith started to come up with some decent ideas i would support him but practically slave labour isn't one of them and ive been ranting for the last 10 mins havnt I.
By now i relise my RASCC is toast dunno how long since i put it down but the flavour is gone and im worked up so next entry will be at least partly about smoking though it will prolly involve my girlfriends new tattoo and the state of my soon to be anorexic wallet.
