I don't hate people on benefits, I hate people on benefits who would be capable of helping themselves but choose not to.
Labour's something for nothing culture has divided society. Socialism basically..

The average person relies on average news outlets which provides for the masses - The scope of knowledge is limited and so unfortunately, so is one's knowledge regarding people receiving welfare which is a tiny number relative to the population and even then is a tiny amount in monetary terms relative to the economy and the abuses and inefficiencies occurring elsewhere in Government funds.
It's the ones who have the ability to have an occupation but choose not to, and those who rather choose to have plenty of kids and not work at all are the reason why I sometimes get annoyed at why they get benefits when they can at least try to get a job.
