    Interesting thought, but surely people have to take some responsibility for their own actions.

    I mean some element of their budget comes in cash at the moment anyway. What happens when people come along and say 'I spent all me food budget on special brew and fags.' Does the council/government keep handing out cash?

    Serious question, I don't know how it works.

    They sure do need to take responsibility, OK so mental health is an issue but the problem is too many so called experts buy into all that crap. I get stressed as does everyone else but some people take the p*** with it, I burst out laughing when the guy said "I have to move from MY house of 14 years due to the bedroom tax" sorry mate but it's NOT your house wake the f*** up!

    trouble is, a lot of them think it IS their house. they 'have a right'
    they really believe there is a bottomless well full of money

    the 'us and them' is frighteningly real

    I p*ssed my pants laughing at some of those comments on their, more social housing oh yeah lets just build you a nice new build to house you. Dear me I think all those years of my mum fiddling the system had a profound effect on me in the sense that I believe the majority of what most people say is tulipe

    I actually agree with this in principal - but the money needs to be weighted to the area - Comparing benefits in London to argue percentage reductions across the board is silly.

    Cost of living is imo at least 33% cheaper in say Preston, to London.

    So we could reduce the benefits bill considerably by sending all the scroungers and skivers up north. Preston could become a sort of concentration camp (from what I gather this would be considered gentrification) and we'd have the added benefit of those in low wage low security jobs becoming motivated to work harder out of fear.

    Arbeit macht frei indeed.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'
