  • IPPR show that the Work Programme will only help people into employment if there are jobs available. With their forecasts suggesting that in 2011 there will be 4.6 unemployed people for every vacancy, the challenges will evidently be significant.
  • Online campaign from GoingToWork.org.uk. Let your MP know how their constituents feel about cuts, ahead of the Comprehensive Spending Review.
  • James Moore asks why "successive governments have sat back and allowed millions of pounds in revenue to disappear,particularly when the Government says it is so hard up that it has to axe child benefit for everyone earning over £45,000." Why not, he asks, tax "those who offer, and crucially, advertise gambling services"?
