An unlikely hero has come to the rescue of several recently unemployed village residents.
Susan Boyle was so moved by the plight of 3 women who were unceremoniously dumped on the scrapheap, 2 weeks before Christmas, that she has decided to employ them on a 3 month trial.
A spokesman for Miss Boyle said that the singer could not stand by and do nothing as 3 family Christmases had been ruined by an uncaring employer. He added that the 3 women were forced out with only a weeks wages each and that their employer would not be paying any redundancy. Miss Boyle cannot involve herself in the politics of this sorry mess but as she is able to help them she will.
He added that the West Lothian area is proud of its long history of socialism and this is a "Big Society Tea Party" approach to assisting those who are victims.
The 3 ladies, highly qualified in IT, charity work, fundraising and financial management, are said to be delighted with the offer. It is understood that the ladies are of unimpeachable character, a fact backed up by their excellent resumes. Declining to be interviewed they have asked that they be allowed to enjoy their new jobs as Personal Assistants to Miss Boyle.
Merry Christmas from Blackburn, West Lothian ladies
