i got sent this document showing all the benefit rates from April 2009, thought it may be useful to some if you haven't had a letter stating the changes in rates yet ;)

i put it on here as i know there are a lot of members who are either carers or have disabilities or children/family members with disabilities

Thanks ill inform my parents... and before anyone jumps on me, my dad is retired for medical reasons... (head injury)

I can understand why it's always stating in the media that people aren't claiming all that they are entitled to - I'm not surprised the list is endless!

Confused.com - glad I don't have to claim anything!
#7
pay rise.. LOL :)
#8
Genuine disability/care benefits I have no problem with in fact they SHOULD be raised.

Does rack me off some of the benefits though... Pay rise.. hmmm rather annoying when my annual raise has been knocked on the head this year due to 'Financial Constraints'
#9
i'm not 'high and mighty', far from it. it just goes to show that the majority of this country's problems stem from this free cash culture.

the 'monarchy' are the biggest stealers of the public purse, so its right the public get some back.

oh, its thou btw, not thow . .

obviously the retired and disabled is not the problem.

just the (celebrity) benefit thieves a la karen matthews, jaqui smith etc

Scrap money payment benefits except for some pocket change, instead hand out food parcels containing home grown fresh healthy products... Delivered to the doors instead of income support weekly.???

Am I the only one who thinks this is not a bad idea?

I know ciggy and cheap alcohol sales will be hurt, but it is for the best.

What bills, gas electricity water will be billed directly to the state.

As I said some pocket change to use a public phone if need be, and to buy the kiddies some penny sweets on the way home or something..

If people on IS or Job Seekers want the luxury of Catalogue, Ciggies, booze mobile phones etc then they will have to work for a living...


Your a fool, not everyone on benefits wants to be on them lol

i would love to go out to work everyday but i dont have that choice, i dont know where you get the idea everyone on benefits in a boozer smokes ciggies etc maybe you read too much tabloid nonsense because im certainly not painting the town red with lots of money

thanks for the heads up cheerleader shame some people get straight on their high horses without knowing all the facts

I know its a public forum, and I did not want to get personel, but why can't you work???

If it is because of disability, there is always something you could do?

It is the benefits trap that makes more and more people jump on the band wagon, it needs radical ideas to get people off it..


Yeah get up off your lazy rrrr's with your 1 leg and hop to it.

Im a full time carer for my partner who has many different disabilties and it would take me forever and a day to explain the ins and outs of all his conditions plus, we have a 6month old daughter who cannot be left with just him, so even if i do get a break from caring for him i still have my child to care for, not that thats a complaint i wanted children and knew exactly what it would have to be like.

I would love nothing more for us both to be able to work believe me we would be a lot better off, i hust dont like it when people react like you and assume we are all lazy good for nothing scrowngers when that cannot be further from the truth

before i had my daughter (im 26 now) i had worked since i was 15 years old being made redundant twice but still found work, my partner worked also before he got attacked and injured which resulted in his disabilities, maybe not tar everyone with the same brush eh?

If what you say is the case, then fine, there are always of examples of people who need genuine help, I am not really disrespecting people who have a genuine disability and needs care (People in wheel chairs, like the Camerons son who sadly recently died). I don't mean people who claim disability who have a limp or something.

If you look at my posts I was directing it at people on Income Support or Job Seekers.

I also have suffered a great loss over the last few years and managed to bring up two kids on my own with no help. I sorted my hours at work and dropped my expectations, at no time did I expect the state to help, and if I did not work, I would of been happy for the solution of Food parcels and bills paid, with some pocket change.

Does that really make it better? Can't just lump everybody into the same boat when you do not know the personal circumstances

Sorry, just for the record I am getting rep for my views so some people agree but are choosing not to post, which is fine...

And I do not have a horse or read the daily mail.


You are being reported as well, the op of this thread gave public information and you are a troll, if you feel so strongly, lobby the government do not attack members of this site.

No under my system they would, they would get a "shelter" accomadation of some sort, bills paid by the state, and food parcels with healty stuff (No more smilly faces or microwave fries) which is great for the week, (No more fat kids).

Give someone a incentive not to have children they can not afford, or aims for a better home and more choice, they would get out and get a job of some sorts.

I have not attacked members of this site.. Get a grip.... I gave my point across in a generalisation not directed at anyone directly. Individuals have replied and I have given my opinion, simple... Sad that you feel the need to report someone for having views in the MISC section which some people agree with.


well i felt attacked

dear me...some harshness on here, people shoul think a bit more about comments

You jump to conclusions too quickly, you are judgemental and insensitive, you are a troll and your comments are offensive, you have taken an opportunity to jump on your soap box and damn people who you consider 'scroungers'.

One day you may be in a position where you need the help of the state.

Will you be back here then advertising your views.

Attacked is such a strong word... I am sorry if you have felt this way, and I apologise...

What a load of crap! I am a fully qualified lawyer and have been looking for work since Sept but due to the climate I found it difficult. I have now started a job but while waiting to begin as I had to wait a month for a start date (their choice not mine) I had to live on and support my two children alone on £80 a month which didn't even cover the my rent while also paying half towards the mortgage on my former home

Don't judge people on the bare facts, you just show your plain ignorance
