Pants no longer required for signing on

As computers and broadband have expanded the range of activities that can be safely undertaken in a bath-robe, from shopping and banking to web-conferencing and recruitment, this was really inevitable.


In fact, it represents something of a reintroduction to the modern workplace.

And best still, it involves ditching the most demoralising aspect of being made redundant – dealing with the hatched faced automatons in the dole office. Maybe when this happens, they’ll finally understand something about the job market.

I approve.

    Well, that’s good. Now you can sign on from work… no, hang on, something wrong there.

    I thought the whole point of making you turn up was to prove you’re not working on the side?

    Thinking about it, though, not really a problem for a black economy worker to turn up once a week or fortnight.

    To catch them out would require proper surveillance and/or financial investigation, which would cost far more.

    I take this is to start once the free laptops have been distributed?
