    Some people blanket say they hate the unemployed because they're lazy and feckless, then a lot of these people express admiration for people earning vast sums of money for very little (e.g. Ed Sheeran).

    It's just kicking the weak underneath it all (not that Ed Sheeran isn't a weak songwriter but you know what I mean). Lots of unemployed people work very hard in volunteering but can't work through disability, for example.

    it has always been the case bro. The case of the poor and rich.
    A 12th century arab poet once said:
    If the rich man was to speak and lie. The masses would believe him and say those like him can never lie.
    And if the poor man was to speak truth, he would be told off and none would believe him.
    For money and coin adorn men with garments of respect and admiration.

    I fear that I am one of those people that get angry at seeing the lines build up outside the job centre. Of course I'm not talking about those that have a disability to prevent them getting a job, but instead those who didn't work hard and drain our economy through benefits. These same people claimed Immigramts were "coming over here and taking our benefits " etc etc. Yet these English born people joked their way through government (and hence tax payer) funded schools, before going on to further drain our economy by claiming benefits. In my opinion we should take away benefits for those who are able to get jobs without having a disability and increase the benefits for pensioners and the disabled.

    It takes a lot to get a job. Not just an education

    I don't have a problem with unemployed people if they're working hard to get work, it's those who turn it into a lifestyle most people dislike

    Most unemployed don't work at all, and how "hard" are they working, do they need create an album every year that will sell millions of copies or do brain surgery? If you mean working "hard" in a physical manner, than those unemployed to should've paid more attention in school.
