Don't get ripped off by your mobile phone network, calling non-geographical phone numbers

Many people don't realise that there are many phone providers offering cheaper calls to standard telephone numbers (those beginning with 01, 02 or 03), which don't apply to 0844, 0845, 0870 or 0871 telephone numbers. - Please see the links page and click on Cheapest Call Provider for price details. This shows that by using multiple providers, you can reduce your call cost on standard telephone numbers to as little as 4p fixed cost (regardless of duration), whereas the cheapest provider to 0870 numbers during the day that I am aware of charges 6p/min (+ 9.3p connection fee [with BT]) to call.

Who will gain from Workfare???

Use of false names by the JC staff

JCP advisors using made up names? Could one reason to do so be that they are ashamed of victimising, brutalising, crucifying and sanctioning the poor and unfortunate job seekers?
