Just in case you were tempted ...

... to think the Tories might be OK after all:

A future Conservative government will bring in "boot camps" for unemployed young people aged between 18 and 21 who refuse to take a job, Chris Grayling, the party's welfare spokesman, will say tomorrow.

Hmm... where is "hug a hoodie" now? Instead it is "bring back the workhouse".

The hardening of Tory attitudes towards the unemployed will be combined with much tougher polices than Labour to get single parents and the disabled back to work, and a big move to privatise provision to help the unemployed.

Please, please New Labour. Don't decide to copy them.
