    No their not .... they cut child benefit and limited to 2 children , they want to get people into work and out of benefits and to make sure that the people who actually need them get them because their have been alot of benefit misuse over the last few years .
    Most of the cuts are aimed at the disabled.

    The fraud level isn't actually that high, contrary to what the media want you to think.

    But they're only attacking the sick and disabled. Meanwhile, they're cutting out benefits which we need to pay for their rich mates tax cuts. Fair? I think not.

    It's rumoured they could cut my benefits to anything to as much as £73 a WEEK. Fair? That's from £186 a week. A loss of over £110 a week.
    Are you employed? What do you spend that money on?

    I'm not a fan of Tory welfare cuts but they are not all bad.

    What about the winter fuel allowance ? That was cut
    What about child benefit ? Limted to 2 children

    Check your facts before you start claiming that the tories hate the disabled and sick

    That's your opinion .... Under Labour it would be

    - Open door immigration
    - More Tax
    - More Debt
    - More spending
    - No Defence
    - NO MONEY

    Also What is your problem with controlled immigration ?

    First, you're wrong.

    Second, morally speaking, no current resident of England has any greater right to live in the UK than literally anyone else.

    I did think he walked into that one with that reply.

    What he obviously meant is that not all welfare cuts are bad and indeed there's plenty more to be made.

    I did answer your question, by telling you that your baseless assertion was wrong (responding like for like, naturally).

    Much as I suspect you've never actually thought this through, why do you think their being British is relevant?

    I don't hate the British. I just don't see them as more important than anyone else.
