    Hi there after reading around the forum it seems like everyone is very jealous of people on benefits as they have alot of things people here dont have, there own flat own car and the freedom to do what they want when they want.

    As this lifestyle is so great and everyone envys them so much im thinking of following the same route. I mean it must be so amazing if it makes everyone so angry? They get loads of money dont they??

    Are you being sarcastic? I think you're being sarcastic. I hope you're being sarcastic.

    No. You don't get "loads" of money on benefits, and babies limit freedoms. Best get all of your fun and freedom out of the way before you're up to your elbows in dirty nappies and noisy rattles.

    It's because of people like you the government are cutting benefits.

    If one has self respect, then one will do all they can to get an education and/or go to work. There are some people who are sick, or disabled, so they cannot go to work. However, having a baby is not a medical condition, so once the child is a year old, then it is time to get back to work. In this day and age, there is enough help out there, and I think it is wrong for people to stay off work, and claim Income Support, because they have children.

    I don't know how some people manage to live so well purely off benefits but that is not the norm. If you live in a poor area you'd know that the majority do not live so fantastically.

    I am on benefits, have been for 12 years, I don't have to sign on, I pay no rent, I can do what I want when I want, I have a full gym membership, I own a car and am able to pay for maintenance, even heavy maintenance repairs, car tax, fill my tank up, we eat out about twice a week and do leisurely things, go on holiday and guess what, I am on benefits http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...491&p=42043570

    Both my parents worked and claimed income support? And now you're going to tell me that parents shouldn't have low income jobs? Or they should be left to suffer because they weren't and aren't hard working enough?

    THIS is exactly what is wrong. I hope you're kidding since its April Fools. You've got a rude awakening if you ever do get back to work, I bet there's nothing wrong with you in the first place.

    I'm clearly doing something then - I can't get a free car. All these car places want £55 a week for these cars.

    Income Support is usually only available if both parents work under 16 hours per week, nless there is disability involved. I just believe that people should always be better off in work, and if you're parents were working, even if PT, then good luck to them, and they should get WTC and CTC to boost their income. What I disprove of, is parents who stay at home for years, and not work, but live off JSA, Tax Credits, Housing Benefits and Council Tax Benefits. The government should make work pay, unless one is off disabled, then in that case, they should receive full support off the state.
