Meaning

Unemployed and in receipt of state benefit.

Origin

In the UK, Unemployment Benefit has been known by the slang term 'the dole' since WWI. This derives from the 'doling out', i.e. 'handing out' of charitable gifts of food or money. This dates back to at least 1919, when it was recorded in The Daily Mail:

"You won't draw your out-of-work dole of 29s. this week."

Its a great thing for those that actually need it especially atm

But over here especially about 75% of people on it are just chavs

I think they need to half it

for the people who actually use it to benefit themselves while looking for a job its a great resourse

but apart from that its full of drunk or high losers who have no life and dont want to do anything to help better themselves....
