Dude Swheatie notes:The following has been received by email from Chesterfield Unite Community branch.
Its author Colin Hampton has a well-respected background among activists from the time he has been with Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centres (DUWCs). I know that Colin Hampton has contributed to Daily Mirror's 'Mirror Investigates' features about Atos and ESA, and Anne Grey informed me in 2008 when we met Colin in the House of Commons that his assistance was invaluable in her writing 'Unsocial Europe: social protection or flexploitation' published by Pluto Press in 2004 which is no longer in print.(1) The evidence he helped provide her focused on the impact of 'Active Labour Market Policies' under which workfarist (work for your benefits) Jobseekers Allowance legislation was brought in in the UK in 1996.
And Chesterfield, as a high unemployment area, has long been targeted by nasty workfarist policies and been associated with numerous suicides.
