    Did anyone else watch this? Im watching now on catch-up and I'm actually gobsmacked that people can come into this country and claim benefits so easily!

    If a parent lives in Britain but their child lives in another country say Romania they can still claim child benefit and then send it over to their child.

    One man wants to build a house in Romania for his family so he's come over to the U.K to claim benefits to send over to his family to build this house he wants.

    They also get free healthcare.

    These people have paid absolutely nothing into the system and just take out of it to send back to their families. How is this even allowed to happen, how is that even legal!?!

    I have no problem with immigrants or gypsies or Romanians who come to this country and actually contribute but it makes me angry watching programmes like this :mad:

    Am I alone in my anger?

    So what?
    You are a laughing stock, paying into the system...
    where do you think this money goes?
    .. mostly to wars, weapons etc.
    You are one of those bishes that try to blame others for your misfortune,
    .. system is corrupt, the people you send proudly money to, to "contribute"..
    are corrupt, just don't expect life to be lovey dovey, it's not.
    The sooner you realise, the better for your sanity.

    So you don't pay into the system? Do you not work or when you do work wont you? *confused*

    When did I blame anyone for my misfortune? Confused again.

    People coming here to make a better life for themselves is good, but people coming here to scrounge benefits is completely wrong.

    I think as a taxpayer myself I am entilted to an opinion on where my taxes go. In my opinion I don't want my taxes going to someone who moves over here just for what they can claim in benefits.

    No.. your opinion on where your taxes go doesn't matter.
    Because.. well, they won't get there..
    they will go where politicians and lawmakers deem it necessary.

    It's not really a contribution, if you are forced to do it.
    Why is it wrong? Are you the moral police?

    It made me laugh more than get me angry compared to the reactions on Facebook.

    The dude at the start "She's going to give me money, yeah" Loved how he added on yeah at the end of his sentences.

    It was abit poorly made to be honest, typical Channel 5 production values of just trashing them but maybe some truths to it but was designed to be light-hearted, soft look into than anything serious.

    in my opinion if you come to this country you shouldn't get benefits (social housing, job seekers allowance, etc) - if you can't afford to live here, don't come here :hand:.

    in my opinion there should be a few "requirements" for an immigration application:
    1) no criminal record
    2) no history of being ill often (so as to save the NHS money)
    3) qualifications for specific industries that aren't over-employing
    4) a deposit of £30,000 (which is kept if you break the law on top of deportation)
    5) on top of that, you need to enter the country with a decent amount of money
    6) if you have children, you'll be a lower priority (because obviously they'll cost the government more)
    7) you should be made to pass this country's driving test if you have a licence from another country (I hear horror stories about how easy it is to pass in some eastern european countries :lol:)
    8) and as a general policy there should be an even~ balance between people of each country coming in (e.g. so not just one country being given priority)
    9) and the amount of immigration should roughly balance the flow of emigration

    Stop having a go at people on benefits! 95% are genuine.

    It's the right wing garbage people watch on channel 4 and 5 that wrongly implies that all benefit claimants enjoy being on benefits and that life on JSA is a life of Riley where people don't bother looking for work and amazingly on £70 a week can afford huge plasma screen TVs, several foreign holidays a year a luxury car and 10 kids etc.
    Thanks to untrue garbage like this every benefit claimant is treat like crap including the disabled. foodbanks, disabled people being told they must work or end up homeless, sanctions where you loose 3 months to 3 years benefit of you are a few mins late to Jobcentre and unpaid workfare that's harsher than the community service dished out to criminals.

    The reality is not shown. Give benefit claimants a break!

    I strongly agree everyone is treated like **** from every walk of life and I don't believe everything is as its shown but why allow these programmes to be aired if its all fake and lies it doesn't set a good example for people who actually need these benefits and made out to be scroungers i for one was born in this country so why should I suffer if other people can get away with not abiding by the rules even when your not the one to break them this country is going to the dogs!!! I just feel sorry for the next generation!!! God help us
