Getting a regular job these days can take months, often leading to the opportunity being lost to obscurity. 99% of the time this is due to CRB & Medical checks which are purely there to protect companies (especially the scourge of modern employment – the job agency) and not people.

Once a company has a clean CRB etc it just creates a green light for them to wash their hands of any responsibility, if anything nefarious occurs; the same is true for medical issues too. It achieves nothing & illicits complacency  allowing potential criminals to actually play the system, rendering the rest of our lives a check box ticking, call centre driven misery.

This also feeds in to PFI related stuff too, as numerous private companies have hit the bandwagon taking £50 a time, simply becoming disorganised buffers to the actual Criminal Registration Bureau, frequently submitting incorrect information, taking the money & running.

Please lets get back to trusting people and a propensity for processes to move swiftly; I'm 41, but I remember a time not so long ago, when you could get a "proper full time", fairly paid job, in two weeks with virtually NO PAPERWORK – let's get back to that; it'll lubricate the economy too.

Why is this idea important?

We need to get back to trusting people and a propensity for processes to move swiftly; I'm 41, but I remember a time not so long ago, when you could get a "proper full time", fairly paid job, in two weeks with virtually NO PAPERWORK – let's get back to that; it'll lubricate the economy too.

I'm sick to the back teeth of the last govenments bogeyman, convincing everyone we are surrounded by paedophiles & criminals, whom can be successfully battled with checkboxes, forms, targets and the ultimate weapon, call centres.
