Why do we allow people to go on benefits when they don't require it?

It's seriously getting on my nerves, unless you are actually in need of benefits from the government why is it allowed?

Someone I know isn't working, lives with his parents, has qualifications, has perfect health and is on benefits, doesn't need to work and goes about his life like any other bloke on the street.

It's the Labour party who did it. Any constituency with Labour in it they build flats and put the people who live on welfare in it.

Which benefits is he on? You seem to know a lot about him and his finances.

Because Britain has been a welfare state for decades as a matter of public policy and national identity.
The welfare state provides state healthcare for all British citizens free at the point of delivery, child/pensions/disability benefits, income support, tax credits and unemployment benefits- for everyone who applies and meets the specific criteria for the means of welfare support.
Many welfare benefits are not contributory or subject to a financial means testing.
