Call for inquiry into use of unpaid jobseekers as jubilee stewards
(today's Guardian)

"Two jobseekers, who did not want to be identified in case they lost their benefits, later told the Guardian that they had to camp under London Bridge overnight, to change into security gear in public, had no access to toilets for 24 hours, and were taken to a swampy campsite outside London after working a 14-hour shift in the pouring rain on the banks of the Thames on Sunday."

("Jobseekers" is weasel English for unemployed.)
