I was about to reply saying that it was OK by me as long as all landlords receiving housing benefit payments, all pensioners, and all farmers receiving subbo had to disclose as well, rather in the spirit of the last post. Perhaps that would convince folk.
You can see Hazel Blears‘s thought process here; it’s terrible that rich kids benefit from internships and businesses milk the interns, I’ll sign this “Wages for Interns” thing, and in the meantime I’ll see if we can get some for folk from Salford. Inevitably it looks terrible.
