Fascist policy of rounding up “welfare claimants” and throwing them in boot camp “training centers” operated by private sector companies “aimed at improving their work discipline and giving them basic skills to get a job… Staying at home doing nothing will be a thing of the past.”

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.

In a significant hardening of Conservative policy towards welfare claimants, he will announce the abolition of benefit payments for any able-bodied person under 21 who is out of work for more than three months and who refuses to go on a compulsory community service programme or a “boot camp” training course aimed at improving their work discipline and giving them basic skills to get a job.

Grayling plans to ask private sector companies and voluntary organisations to run the intensive training centres – with the £5,000 it costs to support a single person on the dole being offered to the company or voluntary group once the person has been in work for one year. Individuals will be expected to report to the centre every day for an intensive training programme.

Some private companies – notably the Australian firm Work Directions – have successfully bid for business from Labour on a ” bonus basis” to get the disabled back to work.

Grayling will say: “We plan to introduce much tougher rules for young people under the age of 21 claiming jobseeker’s allowance. For this group, the welfare to work process will start much earlier. There will be employment ‘boot camps’ and community work programmes for those who don’t find a job. Staying at home doing nothing will be a thing of the past.”
