    Hi Chi

    Am interested in the post of Caseworker in Newcastle Central. What do I need do do to apply. I saw the stuff about emailing to Mr Anthony Bone, but I must tell you, I don’t know if I can put 2 sides of A4 about about my situation. All I can say say is,I can’t find work and when I do find work, I can’t keep work. It may be due to my single status, I don’t know. All I know is, and this is the case for nearly 30 years off and on, I can’t find work in the north east of england, and when i do find work, I can’t keep it, so there, for whatever reason. I know it’s a very socially conservative area, and times that by two, cos I’m in Durham (the sticks). The (catholic) religious family lobby is strong, as are the most worshipful freemasons. I got no beef with anyone. All I want is a job. Please can you help Chi. I’m liberal, in the true sense of an word, and a Democrat. Civil rights for all my thing. I have left wing leanings, although I’m dismayed at a lot of New Labour Policy, (Ed Milliband???) and my local MP (North Durham). You different though. I seen you on TV and you always impressed. Real Socialist, not on the payroll. I’m presently unemployed and have been much of my life. Studies at Uni of Newcastle , including with Mr Brian Ward. Great Guy, but need to come into the 21st century. Snobbish institute – Newcastle uni. Brian was an exception, I must say, but I was non-Catholic, but Catholic aligned. Don’t hate me. Was not my fault, Chi. Am looking for A Job. I tried hard. Experience in the DWP. Worked in Italy as an English Teacher (strong Communist Party there|). The Jobcentre is putting some pressure on me to find a job. I have money only for food and drink, and drink , and drink… and second hand House Music CDs (Trax Records – just say yeah). So please Chi, I’m interested in this post. I’m international. What can I do to apply. I have a Cv I can send. i want to help others and help the little people. Let’s redress the balance. i ain’t in it for self aggrandizement, but they had me cleaning toilets. I can do better. Please get in touch. Sincere thanks Chi.
