Friday's BBC Newsnight (24/2/12) was on the crisis in the government's slave labour scheme workfare, with studio guest Youth Fight for Jobs' Paul Callanan.

www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/ episode/b01ckx2z/Newsnight_24_02_2012/

Socialist Party member Paul Callanan refuted the government slur that opposition to workfare is purely from "socialist groups". The vast majority of people don't want to see their kids going out working for their dole. They want to see them get a decent job on a decent wage with decent conditions. Paul added: "The reason socialists are taking up this issue is because it is a symptom of a capitalist system that is utterly corrupt, rotten to the core, and the reason no-one can get jobs is because the banks collapsed... and the government is attempting to make us pay for it."

Link is available until 31/2/12.
