What about the 40% of the country who work?

I'm sick of people who get things just because they are on benefits. I've worked all my life and never get anything. I'm obviously a right mug. By the way , I'm not against people getting benefits , just deals and offers that only apply if you get them.

People who are on benefits get deals and offers etc. because they need them, because they're broke, the being on benefits part should kinda make that obvious; people who work full-time have more disposable income and can better afford the things that people on benefits need help with. Everyone seems to think being on benefits means you're somehow affluent and smirking at the people who 'have to work'; you're not, you're broke, unhappy, and often either cold or hungry depending on where you can stretch your money to go, and getting financial help with insulating your house isn't much to ask when it means that you'll definitely be able to buy food for the week because your heating can be on less in the Winter. Anti-help for benefits people are so often heartless idiots who have 'worked all their lives' and think that someone is somehow a scumbag because 'you're paying for them' or some stupid thing, when most of us are desperately searching for jobs so we can afford all the things that the workers have. All those whingers complaining about people on benefits getting extra help would gladly take it if it was them who suddenly needed it.

There appears to be absolutely no incentive to work and better yourself these days. I totally agree with the idea of benefits as you never know when you will need some help, however I totally disagree with the benefit system been considered a lifestyle - for life, with generations of family's not starting their day before 12.00.

You "need " the insulation.
You don't need the m&s vouchers any more than I do.


at least people on benefit get to shop in m&s compared to lidl

I have found myself now on benefits, and it is awful. I can maintain pretty much just a basic standard of living, and that is it. I can't wait to get a job again and actually have money to buy things...

people in and around london usually on more money , than up north ,, but still on low wage and cost of living is higher , there should be different money caps for these deals

Child Tax Credit with an income below £15,860

a lot more people up north would qualify for this ,,, not so much in london areas

£50 worth of free food would be a tremendous blessing to many people on benefits, especially those who struggle to get something to eat every day, and yes it does get that bad.

What aload of cods wallop that is.
eg. Girl two doors way with 5 kids by immaculate conception. Besides having her private accom' rent etc paid and being on the breadline. She somehow manages to "stretch" her benefits to have a large LCD/Led tv, Sky, internet access, shopping delivered (ASDA,Iceland,Tesco, Argos), smoke, pizza/taker ways delivered and a mini bus picks them up and props them of a couple of times a week, new washing m/c when the old one "breaks" and the list goes on.
May sound like sour grapes but I've no problem with people getting benefits and however many children they can afford but don't tell me "because they need them, because they're broke," There are many who work that are not as well off as she is. She may be the exception but give us a break.............

Thanks for posting the deal anyway, helping anyone to save, and giving the energy suppliers a touch less profit is fine by me.

The problem is the people that come and fit it, my parents' attic has various tanks and pipes leading everywhere, any time someone goes up there they end up breaking something else. So ideally the free insulation and being able to fit it yourself would be best.

FYI, I got cavity wall insulation free a couple of years back.
It's all part of the government's energy targets.

There are plenty of people like that who abuse the system and have no intention of trying to find work, of course, but I'm sorry, saying it's nonsense that people can suffer like how I said previously is blindly ignorant. I have friends who can't afford to heat their houses, I've spoken to people who can't always afford anything other than bread and milk for three days, there are a good many people whose money is spread as thinly as it can possibly go and they're still struggling beyond what they should be in a developed country like ours. People are killing themselves because they simply can't afford to live. It's not fair to assume every person on benefits is living some kind of high life, because trust me, thousands are battling to get by day to day and it is soul destroying.
