PEOPLE claiming benefits are to face sanctions if they do not appear in a Channel 5 documentary about unemployed people.
Anyone claiming Jobseekers allowance for more than two weeks will now have their money stopped altogether unless they appear in Dole Scum on the Run or I’ve Got Five Kids So You Should Probably Vote Tory.
Jobseeker, Donna Sheridan said: “They told me if I don’t turn up for filming on Monday morning in tracksuit bottoms, smoking a fag and drinking a 35p energy drink then they’re going to stop my money.
“I told them I don’t smoke or like energy drinks but they said they’ll happily pay for them.”
Fellow jobseeker Martin Bishop added: “I got a letter telling me to appear in a disgustingly bad taste documentary aimed at Tory voters who need to be reassured that everyone claiming unemployment benefit is a scrounger out to screw the system.”
A spokesman for Channel 5 said: “Obviously, in the past we’ve mostly been known for putting out soft-core porn on a Friday night but if you look past that, we do have a very strong moral compass.”
