A group of Conservative MPs have suggested that British workers are "among the worst idlers in the world" while the UK continues to struggle in a badly hit double-dip recession.


The five Tory MPs state in their book, which is due out next month, that the UK "rewards laziness", does not encourage risk-taking and must strive to emulate work ethic and low-tax culture in parts of Asia.

The authors of the book include Elizabeth Truss and Dominic Raab, who argue that "Too many people in Britain prefer a lie-in to hard work."

The MPs’ arguments on this matter will stir the debate in the coalition government about how to reverse the crippling economy in Britain, which has seen the UK slip into a double-dip recession.

Many right sided Conservatives are blaming their coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, for the inadequate pro-growth initiatives, even though the government has promised further projects to boost employment and investment this autumn.

Moreover, a recent survey showed that Britain is one of the laziest countries in the world, classing 63 percent of the country's population as "inactive".
