Clerical oversight or George Osborne's new plan to tackle unemployment?

The add also says: "This would be better if you was single and be able to work at your own pace.

"Looks and race ­unimportant. You will need a mobile phone."

The add was posted by Horny Escorts Universal Jobmatch area of the Direct Gov site last Monday.

The manager of the company told the Mirror: "I put the advert up there because it’s a job site and it’s a job. I was a bit shocked they allowed it.

"I also do deliveries and I had posted an ad for a same-day delivery service and then I just put the escorting one underneath it."

The Department for Work and Pensions said the ad had been posted in error but would not say if ads were checked prior to going up, reports the Metro.
