One has to beg the question why these people aren't at work or looking for work on a Thursday.

Reading the article....If my sister was starving I'd give her money and help her out. What the hell is wrong with these people, blaming others for their failures and now harassing a community.

It's an entitlement culture we've created over the past few decades.

I can't help but think that in the period that my mum didn't have a home when she moved back to Scotland she stayed with my gran. there was no homelessness nonsense. There was also a period where she didn't have a job. How the **** does someone starve to death on benefits, even if there was a government intention to make people starve?

Drive the country into the ground via exorbitant borrowing and the compromising of the economy?

Of course. Let's leave future generations with the problems to sort out in the future.

That and "let the private sector we detest solve our problems" should be the taglines of Labour and the Greens

it's what happens when you put the individual at the centre instead of belief in the importance of something else, such as a community, nation or God... of course these people will always exist in any culture but ours does nothing to solve the problem and everything to make it worse.

You couldn't be any more of a tit.

Just saying.

People like you were saying the exact same thing, or worse, when people were protesting over the right for the poor non property owners to vote etc etc

Does it really offend you that people are exercising their rite to protest? Or is the right to protest something else that needs to be done away with so we can return the glory days of 1800s society.

Criticising protest is not denying the right to protest, genius. It's actually an expression of it.

Not at all. I believe in universal suffrage.vi believe in demonstrations.



What I don't agree is people demonstrating about demanding more money is taken off somebody else.

No it is down to the destruction of the family. If the family gone all that is left is the individual and the government. We must restore the family which means restoring Protestant morality. However I don't see all the working class people who bang on about other people in benefits or immigrants going to church. Basically people see problems but want other people to fix them, but they can only fix the problems themselves not the government.

the family is an institution greater than oneself so it's not really a refutation of my point, merely an addition to it.

I actually think the voting rights should be based on property ownership and marriage. To redress the power balance between the cities and more rural area's.

I agree, if you want to be able to influence the system you should have an investment in its stability.

If you live in a country, you have an investment in it. So that argument for limited voting rights is a losing one.
