It’s official… the rate of unemployed people in the UK is continuing to go up. Official statistics show that 2.2 million people are now out of work.
The jobless rate of the working population now stands at 7.1 per cent, an increase from 6.7 per cent. Around 150,000 more people are claiming unemployment benefit.
This is something that should disturb all of us… far more than the MPs expenses scandal.
