Please don't get into Newspaper debates. It's about the Easter Egg Hunt only.

I do think it's be rather humiliating and I would not participate.

Its their job to help other people find work, and they have these application forms and licenses etc, why not just hand them out to the people who need them most? Its very demeaning to ask them to do an Easter egg hunt for them, I was recently unemployed but if asked to do this I would have some very harsh words for them.

I think that the brightspark who's idea this is, should be given his cards and then the first place in the queue for the hunt, so that he will experience first hand just how ludicrous and patronising the whole sorry charade is!

Yours is a very measured response and similar to what I would have said. Only mine would have had more F's in it.

that seems to be on the increase, and was no doubt thought up by the same idiot who decided that offenders doing community service should wear luminous orange jackets with 'Community payback' emblazoned on them. Maybe they should go the whole way and shackle them together.

That's a good idea FE, offenders ought to be recognised - named and shamed - and the shackles would prevent them from running away :P

I think the 'Easter Egg Hunt' is daft and humiliating.

I think this a humiliating to treat those sadly unemployed.
Probably breaches their European Human Rights!
