Once upon a time a group of politicians thought it would be a good idea to give lots of money or funding to research into whether people who are on welfare benefits differ from those who are not. Their hypothesis was that they must be suffering from a faulty gene if they lacked a desire to work. If such a faulty gene could be found it could be repaired and everyone would go back to work.
After many years and money spent on such research a gene was found which they decided to name P45 which was closely linked but probably a mutant genetic transformation of the P60 gene found in people who were already in work. All health and social care staff were encouraged to get people tested for the faulty gene to see if they had said P45. Surprisingly many of their clients and service users did although for some it was very hard to find.
Now all we have to do thought the politicians is to fix the gene, perhaps with drugs which was cheaper than surgery or using or creating more expensive machinery that would blast the gene out of a person’s body and would keep NHS costs down . Once this target was achieved and people no longer possessed the P45 gene then they could all go back to work.
All we have to do then said the politicians is find them some jobs. I know said one politician why don’t we give lots of money to research that will help us create work-like activity for people cured of the Poverty gene! That is a really good idea said another and so they all skipped off together happily ever after.
