    Never been on it but if i were to personally i'd feel humiliated having to get on the thing, seeking hand outs to get by whilst keeping you afloat well it would just be shameful for me..

    Some people have no choice but to claim JSA though. Particularly in such a hard financial time, people with families to support are finding themselves a wage down due to redundancies. They're not scummy chavs- just genuine individuals struggling with the current economic situation.
    I'm not denying that, I'm sorry if I was unclear

    I just mean that feeling you get of embarassment is simply dignity (whether you need the money or not)

    Sorry I read it a bit wrong.. thought you meant nobody with dignity would claim. My mistake!
