The problem is if everyone had this same mentality then we'd all be fooked.

while i agree with u i think alot of people considering the currentclimate dont have a choice, i didnt watch the show yas aretalking about but over here when things were really bad, it was mentioned that even architects were trying to get mc donalds jobs, how true it is i dunno but i remember it been on the news

^^^^ This ^^^^ I've tried to avoid dipping into the thread as it can easily be interpreted as racist to suggest that the country is full. Trouble is it is full…and breaking down. No matter

so many claimants suffer and have their benefits reduced while the problem of fraud is relatively small. I understand money needs to be found to reduce debt. plenty of other areas to exploit before so

the landlords take the p*ss with high rent putting more strain on the benefit system

I know what you mean. I've seen stories about people who would need to have a £30k job to cover the money they get from benefits. The problem is with the system. IMO anyone who is on benefits who's got a flat screen tv, smokes, drinks, got sky etc is getting too much in benefits. Most of the people on benefits I know have or do most of the things I've mentioned. Having or doing those things is a luxury. If your on benefits you should have a roof over your head and enough food and drink. Benefits should be hard to live on that way it encourages people to get a job to have the better life they want. It can't be changed now though. Benefits has become a life choice rather than being a safety net when you need it.

The problem is that the Tories would have you believe that everyone on a benefit is exactly the same way.

Reality is that 90% of people on benefits are hard working people on a low income, the type of people the Tories and libs have been pretending to support but they sill keep cutting their benefit to the point where they can't afford to live. Fact of the matter is there's aren't enough well paid job for everyone to have so something needs to happen, either they stop cutting benefits or they make big companies like tesco and asda pay a living wage because their share holders are the real recipients of working tax credit

Steve b the problem isn't benefits being too high it's wages being too low, cost of living is too high also. Someone having a tv isn't a luxury, you can pick up a flat screen tv for £50 these days

I know tv's are cheap it was leaning more towards the people that complain that they haven't got enough food and that they haven't got enough money to live on etc but still have those things. I made the decision the other day that I would go out and spend £500 on a PS4. If I had an electric bill that was overdue then I wouldn't have brought it. I just feel like certain items are seen as a necessity for some people rather than a luxury.

I base my opinions on benefits on people that I actually know and have encountered. I grew up in quite a sh*t hole area so I know a lot of them as well lol most are family and friends. Probably half the people I went to school with have several kids and on benefits now. I know that doesn't necessarily give me a true perspective of the bigger picture.

When I talk about benefits as well I'm more referring to the younger generation, not much younger than myself. I don't personally feel that there's any excuse for people leaving school to be going straight onto benefits. If you can't find a job or don't know what to do then go to college or do an apprenticeship. It's free and its a way of bettering yourself to open up more job opportunities along the line. My wife is a teacher and she's actually had people say to her, 'when I leave here I'm going to have a baby and live on benefits'. I couldn't believe it when she told me. Like I said it's seen more as a life choice now.

She's talking bollocks, I was off of work for 4 years ill as I have top rate mobility and mid care and you only get high care if you're unable to even feed yourself or about to die, I could have got a BMW but it's not hers it's a hire car so will go back, I had a fiesta which was mine but you can't buy them through motability anymore, I was on the highest sick payment also.

All said and done with the car the rent paid and council tax I was getting around £900 a month and that's not spare that's including the car the rent etc, which was about enough for me to live on and have a tiny bit spare for the odd "luxury" and I have chrons so I don't drink or smoke and if I went out and socialised I would drink black current squash.

It was a huge struggle and I was living with my mrs who was contributing about the same from her job per month.

If what she's saying is true she must be living without eating or clothing her kids.

I admit some people so take the p*ss but you can't tar everyone with the same brush, if you take a militant stance like the Tories you end up with disabled people living in poverty through no fault of their own other than being unfortunate enough to be to Ill to work.

she has chrones too, i dont care how sick folks are, u dont need a bmw to get better. and im not sure what u get if u are a lad in the uk but she defo wasnt short of money and the kids and dog were well looked after including herself. i never actually seen how bad chrones could be so i had to look it up, at first i thought she was pulling me leg

If she's got it as bad as I have then she'll need a far to get around because it's not possible to use public transport and walking becomes very difficult as it effects your legs as energy levels.

The BMW won't be a fancy one it'll just be a standard one and will cost the same amount a month as all the other cars you get, she'll get an allowance and it's up to her how she uses it. Unfortunately you don't get better from chrons so why should she never get any toe of enjoyment out of life because she's ill??? I'll happily pay my taxes at whatever rate to allow someone who's genuinely ill to have the same quality of life as someone who's working, The problem lies with people who can work not bothering to, not people who can being unable to find it may I add, and foreigners coming hers and abusing the sustem which they've never contributed to. Come and contribute by all means but IMO you should have to wait 3 years and have paid 24 months worth of tax before you get anything back

Also her BMW pales into insignificance compared to the multi billions one man can avoid in tax in the same time she has that car. Arcadia £1.2bn profit £000 tax!!

i dont doubt there is other holes in the system and while i agree that chrones is awful and just doesnt effect one part of the body, i must ask this, do the government pay for the tax and the petrol of the car too ? and dont try tell me there is such thing as a standard bmw lmao, if u sit ur fiesta or a standard one beside a so called standard bmw, WHOSE UR DADDY??

man i agree with u that everyone should have a good life and other foreigners for invading lands for benefits is not right, but i dont see how u can say that folks deserve these luxaries while on any type of benefit. uk has free health care, prolly regarded one of the best in the world (maybe top 5?). that is a massive luxary in itself, i have my father in an old folks home here due to dementia, we have had to sell a sharehold in my mothers house to get him looked after as to look after someone with dementia here is 1550 euro a week

my mother is retired and not only do they cut her pension in half with payments, they take all of his too. this is due to we are working class and not on the dole. i do believe in equality so ppl that dont have any money should get treated just as good as my dad but seriously if u have any moeny well especially here they bleed u dry of it.

im sorry i will never understand ppl been sick and gettin a bmw for enjoyment or any sort of luxary as the money has to come from somewhere, where its the largest bill in society or the smallest, its not fair, its taking the p*ss
