Jeremy Kyle has tortured poor people for years. He’s potentially driven one of them to their death. That makes him nearly as bad as an apprentice Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) assessor. As such, the government is eyeing him up for a position.
The absolute hell inflicted on poor and disabled people is coming from the very top of the Tory government. Not every assessor is gleefully carrying out this malign programme. But enough are.
A DWP minister told us:
We’ve been eyeing Kyle up for a while. Although a bit soft for our liking, the boy has potential. Not everyone can look a marginalised person in the eye and think ‘I’m going to fucking destroy you’. Kyle has that. With a little bit of training, he could one day be a mid-level manager in our assessment department.
The department’s over-führer Amber Rudd added:
Left-behind Britons deserve the very best. That’s why we employ people with the most remorselessness; the greatest hate; the absolutest inhumanity. If Jeremy Kyle thinks he has those qualities, he’s welcome to apply. If not, we’ll be seeing him at his local job centre.
Without successive arsehole-led governments demonising the poor, we wouldn’t have ‘pleb-baiting’ as a viable form of morning television. Kyle didn’t invent hatred against poor people. He just capitalised on it.
As vile as this oozing sore of a man is, he’s more a symptom than a cause.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
