Unbebloodylievable!!!

The government has decided that we should all pay a bit towards giving benefits to go towards child care for couples who both work. Now whether or not you agree with that is one thing. 

But there was a woman on the radio today who said because she chose to stay at home and bring up her children, while her husband worked, she felt victimised and we should pay her a bit extra as well!!

I tell you what. Hows about paying for your own daft kids. AND. Hows about hearing a bit of gratitude to the tax payer from benefit recipients, along the lines of..."Well, I know everyones feeling the pinch, but I don`t know what I`d do without all these handouts. I`m ever so grateful to all the British taxpayers for helping me out. Because I`m so bleeding feckless that without them I`d be in the gutter".
Nah, you`d never hear that. Just whingeing that the benefits are being squeezed or not rising fast enough etc etc. 
Getting sick of hearing how low benefits are. Show a little gratitude for what you HAVE got. 
Most people don`t mind paying their taxes and helping folks out who are in hard times, but nobody is ever grateful. Just complaining all the time. 
That daft lass on telly the other night with 3 kids, saying £500 a week was not enough and she was demanding more off us. She had enough for the false eyelashes, makeup and numerous tattoos though.
I`d like to hear just one person say, "well, its not easy, but I`m grateful for the help I do get. God bless this wonderful country and the people in it"

Simples

For those that have genuinely fallen onto hard times, give them food and clothing vouchers for the first 3 months, but zero cash.

That would soon sort out the lazy scroungers.

Heard of ATOS

A lot of the media frenzy in attacking benefit claimants is a smokescreen.
Most benefits are paid out to people working, not the single mother with 5 kids living in a million pound house that the media love to show.
Notice there's very little frenzy in the media about the billions owed in tax evasion/avoidance,
Don't forget Cameron multi millionaire tax avoider claimed DLA benefit or multi millionaire tax avoider Osbourne claimed child benefit.
The wealthiest in society are seeing a boom in their wealth but pay no tax on it. Easy for the powers that be to divert attention and blame our troubles on the poorest.

Claimants

There is a huge difference between those who have to claim benefits and those who don't want to work. I think it's fair to say that everyone on here would support the former, but begrudge the latter.

Whilst it is perfectly true, that there are other huge fiddles going one elsewhere, the problem with the individual scroungers, is that they are on a much more personal level.  You either know one, or live near one, or meet them in the pub.  They are the one's that upset the workers, as they sit on their lazy backsides, with their cocky attitudes.

Yes, I do think the system needs an overhaul.  It can't ever be right, that you are better off on the dole - can it?

ATOS

Don't make mistakes. They are a French profit driven company that has made massive profits passing people fit for work who aren't.
Cameron has had numerous cosy dinners with the billionaire Barclay twins in their new castle just offshore so don't pay tax along with their numerous multi million properties. Strange how a certain Mrs Thatcher has been recovering from her hospitial visit in the Ritz Hotel in London, which doesn't pay6 any tax and just happens to be owned by the cough cough Barclay twins.
Can y6ou blame some poor people fiddling benefits when they see the wealthist in society screwing us all. The good old British Establishments deivide and rule.
