The Great Car Con. 26 Jan.

Motorists were promised diesel would be the cheap, green fuel of the future, but it turns out that's not the case. Why did politicians encourage the 'dash for diesel'?

    Thought last Monday's #C4Dispatches was illuminating, showing the truth of #coalition's economic miracle, low pay, tax scams & usual stuff!

  • @_DeeDixon_ 21 Jan

    Watching a #dispatches about #bedroomtax! I can feel my rage bubbling inside me!

  • @stkildasunrise 19 Jan

    thought #dispatches low pay Britain was chilling and revealing, but WHY no trade unions interviewed ? Unions are airbrushed from media

  • @cllrtrisosborne 19 Jan

    That is real pensions scandal. Millions of p/t workers won't be entitled to full state pension. Timebomb on future taxpayers. #dispatches

  • @jane__bradley 19 Jan

    That was some bloody fantastic undercover footage on #Dispatches. #lowpaidbritain

  • @ChriswMP 19 Jan

    Umbrella companies exposed on #dispatches 4 subverting minimum wage. We must make capitalism work for us & stop this exploitation of workers

  • @cedawnow 19 Jan

    #LowPayBritain #dispatches this prog is long overdue, it's what so many us have been saying for a long time #notrealjobs #ConDemNation

  • @ChriswMP 19 Jan

    Disgraceful exploitative practices of employment agencies exposed by #dispatches. These agencies are a scourge & inconsistent with decency

  • @CllrTerryJ 19 Jan

    Part time workers and those on #zerohours contracts risk not getting a full pension thanks to #corporategreed #LowPayBritain #dispatches

  • @harrisimo 19 Jan

    Watching #dispatches it's almost as if.... no... surely not... but it's like.... the government are LYING to us?

  • @ukbloc 19 Jan

    £3.5 billion of benefits go to full time workers, essentially propping up corrupt companies underpaying workers #dispatches

  • @CllrMTomlinson 19 Jan

    If you ever doubted Britain is a low pay rip off economy, check out #channel4 s #dispatches which aired tonight. #timetogetangry

  • @dunne_ie 19 Jan

    #dispatches on @channel4 is very worrying, no doubt its happening here in Ireland too

  • @robwarren81 19 Jan

    #dispatches interesting tonight exposing sickening treatment of workers earning less than minimum wage

  • @immacReno 19 Jan

    That grim image one gets when: #LowPayBritain + High Rents.So these employers expect someone to live on £3.50ph? Words Fail Me. #dispatches

  • @gonzoidy 19 Jan

    #dispatches on Channel4 Low Pay Britain. Worth watching good explanation of how employers are avoiding tax and suppressing employer rights

  • @Jpofgwynedd 19 Jan

    "@arlenephillips: Yes yes I'm on my soapbox. Everyone must turn to @Channel4 #lowpaybritain #Dispatches" Or go +1 at 9.30 Shocking stuff

  • @Jude_KD 19 Jan

    Worth watching tonight's #dispatches on @4oD: reality of work in post-recession UK (ultra-flexible, insecure & part-time...). Action Needed!

  • @UKWideWatcher 19 Jan

    Low Pay Britain: Channel 4 Dispatches http://t.co/FD7ruAMJFg

  • @LeeMcVeigh 19 Jan

    Why does Channel 4 put Undateables on at the same time as CBB? Dispatches would make more sense tbh

  • @CABspecsuppemp 19 Jan

    If you're ovr 21 & earn less thn £6.50 p/h look into the situation further http://t.co/q6KpocWQUC & contact yr local CAB #dispatches #lowpay

  • @nzeribe 19 Jan

    @Dubbeh_ Well mate, the “part-timers” are supposed to get this thing called “rights”, FYI #didyougetthememo #Dispatches

  • @domatkinson76 19 Jan

    Using apprenticeships to pay people less? Shame. #dispatches

  • @GavinTalbot1 19 Jan

    #dispatches Strange u never see politicians get tough on this sort of exploitation of workers but they're happy to defend bankers bonuses

  • @Syrupie 19 Jan

    #dispatches How can anybody be expected to live off around £2.80 an hr regardless of whether they are apprentices or not.

  • @JennyBloomfield 19 Jan

    And now for the great apprentice pay dodge - call an employee an apprentice when they're not and pay them just £2.68 an hour #dispatches

  • @jd_leveller 19 Jan

    @Cilvrnum Watch #C4 , #dispatches . Says it all.

  • @nickdmorris 19 Jan

    Grimesthorpe, South Yorks. has the second highest youth unemployment in the UK #c4dispatches

  • @joannevstevens 19 Jan

    #Dispatches covering low pay and zero hrs contracts - half of part-time workers won't pay enough NI to qualify for full state pension.

  • @john_mcirvine 19 Jan
