I thought the channel 5 benefits debate a few months ago was actually quite sympathetic. Dispelled some myths. Not at all like the channel 4 one a week or 2 later which just seemed to promote them.

My brother's next door neighbour is on benefits. He quite proudly told my brother that he now has more money to spend on gear as he can "fall back" on food banks whenever he needs to. He's a typical junkie scum, quite scrawny and his referral to the food bank comes from his doctor. If you people think he is alone in ripping the p1ss out of the food bank system, then you're deluded. Thankfully my brother lives 200 miles away from where I do, and the nearest food bank is over 60 miles from my house. Wait and see my truthful comment being deleted again, YAWN!!!

So you believe what this guy next door says (_;)

I think you're the deluded one in what you now believe.

Foodbank referrals are limited to 3 per year so he is either lying or assuming other identities with the help of his doctor, this does happen.

The main factor nowadays for food bank referral is benefit sanctions.
Most of the people using foodbanks are either in work and have short to medium term financial problems or have just lost their jobs usually through no fault of their own and are looking for new jobs but their benefits take a minimum of three weeks to be processed. How can they be lazy if their are or were until recently in work. Yes there are some people who take advantage of the schemes like drug addicts but they are only a small proportion of the people who use the services and usually the services I am aware of have systems in place to limit any small scale exploitation of the service.
