    I could not sign in either!

    ...

    Seems to back up and running now though!

    Probably just a server error or what not.

    Have you tried this Google Chrome addon?

    chrome.google.com/web…eke?

    Made my searching for jobs much easier!

    When did it come back on for you (sign in bit) ?

    It was working at 10am

    HA HA yeah Cameron decided that the poor don't deserve the internet so turned it off. The money is needed for tax cuts for the billionaires without them we would have nothing to look up to!

    More likely he wants to give the billionaires more people to look down on.

    That was a good laugh seeing it go through the whole process.
    Needs tweaking in options though as you go along when you are applying to be a nail technician seems a bit odd.

    thanks for the giggles

    haha glad you enjoyed it. Makes the task of scraping through that website a darn site easier! Ha yeah changing the options are a must... I use to get a well done everytime I went in, applied for that many jobs they couldn't look at them all ha

    It makes a bit more work for me as i use screenshots on my smartphone and dont allow them access at Job centre.

    Being a bit of a security/privacy enthusiast I am worried about the amount of data the government loses on a regular basis whether its the dvla, child support agency etc

    Ahhh certainly would then.

    I was the same... it took them ages and many threats at sanctions to get me on that website. They couldn't explain the bit in their terms and conditions that says we withhold the right to sell your information.

    Yes the same for me, it took them months of arguing and been past around until i signed up or else.

    I got to see the conditions on paper and took a copy, which stated i could just screenshot my activity on direct.gov and show the advisor while denying the advisor access to my account.

    You have to fight the barstewards all the way it seems if you dont comply.
    As some one on here put it "if they put as much effort into helping people as they do in trying to kick them off JSA a lot more people would be in work"
