Why do a lot of the British public hate people on benefits?Watch
Post ww2 we had 100% unemployement.
However things have changed. Atleast our 6% unemployed are safe in. The knowledge that no matter how much migrant labour flood into the UK, about 6% of our work force will take the 'can't work, won't work attitude towards life.'
Half of them are long term unemployed.
Those unable to work because of disabilities/health concerns are not classed as unemployed.
We imported a shed load of foreign labour this year and last year.
One thing I don't understand is that people in this country always seem to make a big deal out of those claiming welfare. 'My hard working tax money' ' I don't want my preciously earned taxes going to single mothers', but do these people even pay attention to where ELSE their 'hard earned money' goes? You never hear them speak about it, it's just scroungers this, scrounger that...People like David Icke are right here, surely?
I mean why do people get so up in arms about someone on £50 a week on JSA, but they don't care if a rich, overweight, flabby politician spends some of their hard earned money on stuffing his face with sandwiches and kit kats each week? What about all those illegal wars your tax money paid for?
I have been on benefits before and also worked and it didn't bother me at all that I paid tax that went to help out single moms and those in desperation.
In a country that is still ruled by a monarchy, how can a guy claiming 50 quid a week or 300 quid a week housing benefit and eating tesco value noodles for dinner be your enemy?
And how would your private piano lessons pay for rent, food, utility bills, water rates, TV licence (if you choose to have one) and the whole host of other costs that come with modern day living? This type of attitude perfectly sums up the selfish white male. 'Get a job' yes but after they have that job, how are they supposed to afford to live and pay their rent? You're telling me minimum wage can pay for all that?
Working the average hours & charging the average rate for a piano lesson. I am sure to make enough to cover all of that, if not more
And what about us with children who are not school age and would be earning less due to childcare costs ???
Everything is not black and white .
What about those who are like me trying to go back to study whilst mothering our children (single may I add ) who wanted to bring up children rather than a stranger .
Us on benefits are not all lazy liars :-)
People being long term unemployed is kind of what you would expect with high unemployment as the most intelligent/skilled are getting the jobs and the dumbest people are the worst for most jobs thus why would they be able to get any job?
Its not all people on benefits, its those who can work, but choose not to, as they cant be bothered, the culture where Labour made it possible for those who were not in work to earn more than those who do.
Hearing of families that have 8 children who get a free 6 bedroom house, free car and living fairly lavish lifestyle's funded purely by the tax payer, is quite disgusting. This was fairly common place where I used to live
but they don't care if a rich, overweight, flabby politician spends some of their hard earned money on stuffing his face with sandwiches and kit kats each week?
