Job Centre Plus for degree professionals: Not much they offer in services

Are you a degree professional and looking for work in UK? If you are finding it hard to get work in UK and considering visiting Job centre Plus, then read on.

Following are the services of Job Centre Plus for job seekers in degree professionals:

1. Provision of Job Seeker Allowance.
2. Take declaration from job seeker taking Job Seeker Allowance that he/she is still looking for work to make sure that allowance is only paid when an individual is seeking work (if the advisor gets hint that the individual is studying, then allowance will be stopped or excused)
3. Arrangement of a one day course that is about job seeking for professionals
4. Test of mock interview by some Job Centre partners such as 'Futures'
5. Provision of office environment like cubicles in some Job Centre partners for job seekers to search jobs from there

Job Centres do not perform the following:

1. Search jobs for you or let you know about jobs. Search jobs by yourself using web sites or your means
2. Train or retrain you in any field as they do not have any such budget
3. Accurately judge your CV particularly in technical areas because their capabilities are limited to non-professional CVs generally

In summary. for degree professionals, they are limited to the one day job seeking course, a desk, mock interview testing and the allowance. This is not really much they offer to job seekers with higher education background.

The information is accurate at the time of writing of the article.

Poem on Christmas by Ms. Saba Maqbool


Christmas Comes

Christmas comes with children singing,
Christmas comes with sleigh bells ringing,
Christmas comes with frosty nights,
Christmas comes with snowball fights.

Christmas comes with Santa Claus,
Christmas comes with snowy floors,
Christmas comes with robins & reindeers,
Christmas comes with hearty cheers.

Christmas comes with gold, frankincense &
myrrh,
Christmas comes with Jesus’ birth,
Christmas comes with angels afar,
Christmas comes with a wonderous star.

Christmas comes now at last,
Christmas comes, like in the past,
Christmas comes after such a long wait,

Christmas comes and will be great!

Clarification response to "LETTER TO DAVID CAMERON & ED MILIBAND"


Below is my clarification response to a letter written by a British elder to Ed Miliband and David Cameron. There were many issues pointed out in the letter and some of these points related to multiculturalism and Muslims required clarification which could be done best by Muslims. I, therefore, found it a good opportunity to clarify the myths and rumours about multiculturalism and Islam. Please read on for the letter from the British elder (in bottom) and my response (below).

------------------------------------------------

Dears,

I have read the letter from our 72 years old elder to Ed Miliband and David Cameron, and he has several valid points in his letter. As a Muslim, I feel that I can enlighten on a number of the points mentioned in his letter:

Please tell me why we have areas in towns and on large estates all over the country, where police do NOT; will NOT go, for fear of their life ?
There should not, ideally, be such places where people or even police does not or will not go for fear of life. But, it is not necessarily due to multiculturalism. Any area having poverty, illiteracy and crime will have these attributes. Many countries e.g. USA have similar neighbourhoods in their cities where even police is careful to move around. These problems are tackled by development schemes, job creation, building and improving schools, handling crimes effectively and eradicating poverty by building economy and supporting local businesses.

Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools for fear of "OFFENDING" someone ? (The latest little gem is that they are not having or being funded, for chaplains any more, but Counsellors!)
As the society is now secular, schools generally teach about multiple religions to increase the information bandwidth and tolerance. This is good for everyone as Muslim kids also learn about other religions and same is true for children of other beliefs. The choice of Chaplain vs Counsellors is most probably due to having secular society.

Please tell me why religious Christmas observances are no longer allowed in some schools for fear of OFFENDING someone?
It may be choice of individual schools, but Muslims do not have any issues with religious Christmas observance in schools. In fact, Muslims participate in Christmas activities as a festival.

Please tell me HOW Christmas decorations in some stores might OFFEND someone?
As a Muslim, I cannot understand how Christmas decorations could offend Muslims.

Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming centres for fear of "OFFENDING" someone?
Part of this is due to the fact that not all ladies want to swim with men particularly Muslim women who are not allowed to show their bodies to unrelated men by their faith. Apart from Muslim, other religious women like Hindus would also avoid swimming with unrelated men. Local swimming centres can take care of its member people by being flexible.

Please tell me why we have some RADICAL clerics demanding Sharia Law in this country when if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be allowed?
As Muslims, we understand that this demand is itself made without doing thinking of geography, society and national and religious diversity in UK.  This demand may come from one of the Muslim sects only, and is not supported by other Muslim sects due to faith intolerance reasons. Apart from radical clerics, Muslims do not request and support implementation of Sharia law in UK due the reasons given above. Even if Sharia law is implemented in UK which currently does not have even remote chance, it will be applicable on Muslims only, so people of other or no beliefs need not worry at all.

Please tell me why our laws need to be changed, so as not to OFFEND someone ?
As society becomes more multicultural, the government has to ensure that its laws are applicable fairly to everyone. Therefore, revision of laws may be necessary sometimes. These revisions can be made as these laws are man-made and not holy words from God.

Please tell me why we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice, in our own country, because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS?
Actually, minorities have more voice now as the world is more connected via telecommunications and social media. Therefore, each person has the opportunity to express his views. British Whites are not becoming minority, but have now other voices shared in the same eco-system.

Please tell me WHY Britons cannot legally wear a bike helmet covering their head in a bank and yet it is ok to wear a Burqa which covers the whole of the face ?
I have not found any information by Googling about banning of bike helmet wearing in a bank but I am sure that it may be due to security aspects. It has happened before that bike helmets have been used to disguise by thieves in bank robberies.

Regarding face covering Burqa and gloves in hands, it is observed by Muslims of a particular sect, and not by others. All other sects keep face and hands open, as these are required for daily activities. Please note that in Islam, women are not allowed to show their bodies or charms to unrelated men by faith. In case of harsh weather dealings, these face covering Burqa (also called Hijab) and gloves become natural needs.


The British people that I speak to have genuine concerns about becoming a second class minority in our own country, and the reasons for it are some of the above. Are you so blind that you cannot see this? And no, I am NOT racist!!!  If I did not like Catholics or Protestants would I be considered racist? Of course not!
It does not seem to be correctly forecasted as according to the most recent statistics (please follow the links below), the British White population is 87.9% of overall population. There is so vast gap between White British population and other ethnic groups' population that British White population becoming minority is just a myth.
Please go to following links for reference information from Office of National Statistics:

We are fighting Radical Muslims in Afghanistan; Iraq, are we not? I hear you say, yes but the Muslims we have here are "Not like that ". Well how would we know? Do we hear ANY of them coming out; speaking AGAINST radicals? I haven't, have you?
Muslims are affected by radical Muslims on the daily basis more than any other ethnic group. You can Google and find out how many Muslims die each day due to this radical Muslim menace/suicide bombers. Do you find people in Britain dying each day because of Muslims?  No, and it is sure evidence that Muslims in Britain are not radical Muslims.  Also, we denounce such radical practices at all platforms.

You can find good Islam related information on reliable Muslim web sites. This information is not available in mainstream media, as it is mainly concerned with commercial aspects, but if you ask any informative Muslim, he will find for you the relevant correct information. Beware that there are some web sites which are anti-Islamic and pose as Islamic web sites. These anti-Islamic web sites promote bad practices of Islam and are generally run by Muslim hate groups.

But, unfair, biased and hypocrisy based foreign policies towards Muslim countries develop into Muslim protests, and these protests are seen in the country particularly regarding Palestine, foreign military interventions and Arab spring. These unfair foreign policies result in some illiterate radicals in Muslim countries into becoming militants against countries with unfair and biased foreign policies, but these militants are not in UK. Exceptions are always everywhere, but 1 person does not represent 99 people.

Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in Britain! Are not the experiences of France and the Netherlands a examples of that? Why do you think it would be any different here?
Kindly let us know what are the British values Islam is not compatible with? It is an open-ended comment with no details, and so it does not have any standing unless supported by reasoning or evidence. In France and Netherlands, the country's values are followed and in Britain, many of these requirements are already in place and are followed. Any radical Muslim requirements are not welcomed by even other Muslims like complete face covering and Sharia law.

We even have a British born "radical ", whose message is that Britain WILL become a Muslim country, under Sharia Law; that we had "better get used to it ".
One such radical person does not mean anything. You can always find such exceptions everywhere.

Will both of you grow some "balls", and start sticking up for this country and its people? We are the people who put you where you are and PAY you to look after our interests!
Please note that the statement "We are the people who put you where you are" is understood to include all ethnic groups.

In case it has escaped both of you I would like to remind you that, in the U.K. Government is FOR THE PEOPLE ... OF THE PEOPLE ... ; BY THE PEOPLE ...  Never forget that because you sure have up till now!
True, the UK Government is to cater for people of all ethnic groups.

I hope that our elder's questions regarding multiculturalism and Muslims have been clarified in my email, but if there are any further questions, please do email me.

Best regards

A brilliant letter!  Written by a 72 year old.


 TO ALL OF YOU WHO DO NOT NORMALLY READ EMAILS PLEASE READ THIS ONE.


IT'S NOT FUNNY




It’s sad but true, I have to agree with the 72 year old man who wrote this letter, I notice there isn’t a reply.

This is one of the best letters I have read for a long time, it puts it ALL into perspective. PLEASE PASS IT ON to everyone you can, its time BOTH parties stood up and listened.

This is our country and it’s being destroyed.

Subject: The silent majority


To David Cameron (Prime Minister) & Ed Milliband (Leader of the Opposition) ...

You BOTH Worry me ! ( In fact both of your Political parties worry the hell out of me !!!)

Over the last three years, I find myself becoming more and more fearful of the pair of you, and between you, you are turning this country into a place that I no longer feel at home in, or feel a part of! I watch you in parliament, and no, not just the two of you, but every politician that I see, stand up in parliament sneering at each other, and acting like children !!! (..and if you were my children, I would be ashamed of you all ... What an example to set!)

Although you would like us all to believe that you are putting the needs of this country at the forefront, NEITHER of you are doing that, you seem more interested in "one-up-manship ", in scoring off each other, & denigrating each other, to the detriment of this country & its people !!! It seems to be all about YOU as individuals, and not about what you can DO for this country !
It is fast becoming a place that I do not recognize, as the place I always thought, was the best place in the world to be !!!  But no longer !!!

You are not listening to the people of this country !!!
I am watching the deterioration of living standards in this country, (and according to you, on a world stage we are doing better than most countries ... REALLY ???) ... And yet the gap is widening between the "haves" and the "have-nots" . I see our homeless on the streets, our hospitals under-funded, and understaffed, our health system is an absolute mess and a disgrace ... And yet I see multi-millions of dollars being sent offshore, in aid to other countries, before attending to this country's needs !

I see the "selling off of water rights to foreign interests, WHY...?  Especially when you go to great lengths to tell us that water is a finite resource, & supposedly, we must ALL be careful with how we use it, so that we ensure we have it for the future ? A Carbon Tax,( which you KNOW is just another tax ) which will make NO appreciable difference, to carbon emissions, AT ALL!
A tax, which in spite of all your arguments FOR it, you are doing alone, when other major countries will NOT & DO NOT embrace it, or believe in it !

All that it will do for this country is put working families and small businesses behind the eight ball, .....what planet are you on, if you think that the tax we must pay will make even a scrap of difference to the effect of the carbon tax on people? Anyone can see the holes in that argument !!! Do you really think we are that dumb ???

Let's talk about Multiculturalism ......People have come here from other countries, for a better life, for more years than I have been alive ( I am 72 years old !)

Pre & Post war immigrants came for a better life, and settled in and became wonderful contributors to this country, ... all have contributed to the rich diversity of this country, and some descendants have even fought FOR this country, and they have become U.K.citizens and were glad to be ...and they had NO handouts from our Government either, ...they worked hard for everything!
I have never before had a problem with all, or any, race of immigrants coming here. However, I DO NOW !!!

Please tell me why we have areas in towns and on large estates all over the country, where police do NOT, & will NOT go, for fear of their life ?
Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools for fear of "OFFENDING" someone ? (The latest little gem is that they are not having or being funded, for chaplains any more, but Counsellors!)
Please tell me why religious Christmas observances are no longer allowed in some schools for fear of OFFENDING someone ? Please tell me HOW Christmas decorations in some stores might OFFEND someone ? Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming centres for fear of "OFFENDING" someone ? Please tell me why we have some RADICAL clerics demanding Sharia Law in this country when if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be allowed? Please tell me why our laws need to be changed, so as not to OFFEND someone ? Please tell me why we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice, in our own country, because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ? Please tell me WHY Britons cannot legally wear a bike helmet covering their head in a bank and yet it is ok to wear a Burqa which covers the whole of the face ? And please tell me WHY, when those people who want asylum here can wreck our detention centres and STILL be accepted here ?


What does that say about just who and what are this government's priorities ?
The British people that I speak to have genuine concerns about becoming a second class minority in our own country, and the reasons for it are some of the above. Are you so blind that you cannot see this ? And no, I am NOT racist !!!  If I did not like Catholics or Protestants would I be considered racist ? Of course not!

Why is it, that if we object to what is happening in our country we are immediately labelled RACIST, in an attempt to shut us up ?

We are fighting Radical Muslims in Afghanistan & Iraq , are we not ? I hear you say, yes but the Muslims we have here are "Not like that " . Well how would we know ? Do we hear ANY of them coming out & speaking AGAINST radicals ? I haven't, have you ? Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in Britain ! Are not the experiences of France and the Netherlands a examples of that? Why do you think it would be any different here ? We even have a British born "radical ", whose message is that Britain WILL become a Muslim country, under Sharia Law, & that we had "better get used to it ".

Will both of you grow some "balls", and start sticking up for this country and its people ? We are the people who put you where you are and PAY you to look after our interests !  And you are NOT doing that by any stretch of the imagination !!!  I would appreciate an answer from both of you, if only to convince me that once again I am not talking to a brick wall !
In case it has escaped both of you I would like to remind you that, in the U.K. Government is FOR THE PEOPLE ... OF THE PEOPLE ... & BY THE PEOPLE ...  Never forget that because you sure have up till now !



Let us get this out to all - please keep forwarding and if you have people in the press or if you know Politicians - let them know we are dis-satisfied with their behaviour !



PLEASE SEND THIS GREAT LETTER TO AS MANY PEOPLE IN THE U.K. AS YOU CAN, AND IF YOU HAVE CONTACTS OVERSEAS DO THE SAME.
