Hayley Does Donacster.

No 'me' post today - I'm cogitating on the How Right-wing Are You? debacle of yesterday - and on how the quiz itself and Cherry Pie's suggested alternative suggest a sinister angle in the real world...

In the meantime, for social schadenfreude fans, here's a link to a new programme tonight that my colleagues are keen to watch.

The government is trying to revolutionise the welfare system. Benefit Busters follows the work of a private company trying to get lone parents on benefits back into work.

The market, public money, and workless single mothers meet. What could possibly go wrong?

How's that going to work when it's not in their economic interests to do so?

I might dip into it NNW but I usually avoid that sort of programme because they're soooooo damned depressing.

Oh, boy! That's going to be some interesting viewing...
