The new unemployment rules - classic misdirection

For a while now news has been blaring that the government was set to allow employers to fire employees "at the drop of a hat" or for no cause; this has been widely vilified. Oh but wait Saint Cable to the rescue - no they're not doing that....  instead they're going to reduce the paperwork needed to fire someone oh and make it a lower punishment for unfairly dismissing someone. All in the name of helping the economy.

So they're going to reduce unemployment by making it easier to add to those ranks? Gee makes sense to me.

But hey they could have made it worse so we should be thanking them right?
