Broken Britain.


Did you lose your way to the Daily Mail forum? "hard working families" claiming working tax credits cost us more than those fictitious benefit scroungers ignorant people like to vent about. Its ill educated selfish morons that will destroy this country, not the benefit scroungers. Voted hot, everyone needs all the help they can get under this current regime and their rabid daily mail followers.

We get this. I left work after 24 years to look after my wife, your clueless assumption is so wide of the mark that it was nearly not worth commenting on.

That's so wrong. For people have full time job, they don't get any discount or benefits. For those who don't bother to work (apart from disabled, medical conditions and OAPs), they get all sort of benefits and discounts. No wondering some people don't need to work. Most likely they do have more money than those who work really hard.

No nigel it is not a clueless assumption, if you bothered to read the first 2 words it says not everyone!!! so your situation is an example of when this works. But I would argue 90% of the time this does not work.

Sam - shut up and stop being so self righteous. Hard working families put into the system. Benefit scroungers give nothing and expect to take. They are not fictitious. Hard working families may cost more as a while but I doubt that this is the situation per capita. Too many people put nothing in and want to take take take. There are people complaining about the size of their council house and get bigger houses so they can have more children. I want more children but realise I can't afford a 5 bedroom house so I don't have more and I don't expect anyone else to pay for me.

i dont need to make excuses for anything.it was all your words not mine....you said that money is for the "benefit scroungers" so in your eyes "hard working families" who work and get working tax credit which is a benefit are "benefit scroungers" aswell ??

No Terry, because as Spence has said previously, he has kids, so would probably get some sort of child benefit & that would make him a "benefit scrounger" too (in his eyes). That wouldn't fit in with his ill informed rant now would it?

yes it would..if he carnt be bothered to find out about what he is able to claim that's his fault no one's else's.......if he's paid in to the system and wants to take back some of what's he's entitled to, do it....if he don't want to claim it for what ever reason or just to lazy to do it don't have a pop at people who do claim things they are entitled to .....

I get child benefit for 2 children. I pay national insurance for a nhs that is broken so I also pay for Bupa so I actually get treatment rather than wait months. That also goes to a pension pot where the age gets older and older because more people are abusing it. I pay for my dentist and prescriptions on top of my NI which should cover this and would cover this if there was not so much welfare. I worked 2 jobs last year to help make ends meet while others do f8ck all. Never mind though I'm glad my tax will go to someone who chooses not to work so they can have some free heating. I used a fireplace throughout the whole of last winter to reduce my bills.

f8ck it, I'm going to retire now at 27 and let everyone else pay for me.

carnt work out weather just a true blue Conservative or weather you have been on the lemons and thats why you are so bitter !!!

so with all the things you CHOOSE to pay for you dont need to be so bitter about others..you dont have to wait in nhs queues like everyone else YOUR CHOICE not the unemployeds fault,the pension pot crap is not the unemployeds fault,free perscriptions is not the unemployeds fault, "I worked 2 jobs last year to help make ends meet" you choose to do that its not the unemployeds fault you are to LAZY to fill in a few forms to claim something that you are entitled to and YOU keep moaning about paying i.e tax and ni..

"I'm glad my tax will go to someone who chooses not to work so they can have some free heating" oh so now you begrudge the oap's of this country their cold weather payments and free bus passes every year even though the have payed in all the life the same tax and ni that you bang on about ? after all it is classed as a benefit and that makes the scroungers in your eyes...

go write to alan sugar,cliff richard,bruce forsyth, Philip Green Paul McCartney and the like and tell them they should not get the bus passes and heating befefit they are scroungers..that is not the unemployeds fault those people get it but they pay alot more tax and ni than you ever will but you dont hear them bitching about it

true blue or lemons you decide !!!

All I can say is wow!

1. A recent study has shown that the NHS is one of the best, cheapest and most efficient health services in the world, its far from perfect, but thats what happens when you cut £20 billion from its budget. The demonisation of the NHS is paving the way for privatisation & thats a bad idea, take a look at America.

2. Abusing what? pensions? How can you do that! Benefit fraud in general is tiny, something like 0.7%. You do realise that almost half of the entire welfare bill is the state pension. We give three times the amount in foreign aid, than we do in unemployment benefits! Government data shows that 962,000 workers are now having to claim housing benefit. The main problems are low wages, zero hour contracts & fake self employment etc, not "scroungers".

I understand what you are trying to say, I pay 40% tax & rarely see anything in return, do I worry about it, not one bit! I would rather see my money go to someone in need, than some faceless corporation with its offshore accounts. There are always going to be a few people fiddling the system, both in & out of work, but this whole "benefit scroungers" rubbish has gotten out of hand. They didn't cause this financial mess, its all just smoke & mirrors, giving the masses anyone to blame apart from the true culprits.

By all means give up your job & see how long it takes before you get sanctioned or are working 30 hours a week for your seemingly overly generous £71 a week. Its really not the easy life of all day drinking & sky tv that people think it is. I have never come across anyone that chose not to work, but I presume you can fit 2.5 million people into 600,000 jobs easily!

I hate chipping in to these somewhat futile arguments but I have worked for over 20 years and have been made redundant at which point I have had to claim benefits. I am EXTREMELY grateful for what I get, however, I have a repayment mortgage and the state pays some of the interest so I am falling behind with the possibility of losing my family home. I have never said that it's anyone's fault other than mine that I am in this situation and again that I am grateful for the government's help. That all said, I have recently claimed this extra benefit, so for that please forgive me!!

Lots of heat added.

ok simple question time

1.did you pay in to the system ?
2.are you entitled to take out some of what you put in ?
3.do you intend staying on the dole for any longer that you have to ?

im guessing its

1. yes
2.yes
3.no

as for the "benefits scrounger" comments take no notice just challenge them to walk a mile in your shoes then come out with the same crap.

life on the dole for SOME the 1% in the programs that channel four make life is like that but it's all hyped up so it gets reaction from people and sells the program,for the other 99% its not like that food banks are not part of some fairy tail where everyone lives happy every after they are REAL LIFE to help people eat and are not paid for by tax or ni but you still get called a "benefits scrounger" if you use 1.

I can only agree with Terry's previous comments & say that you have done nothing wrong, being made redundant wasn't your fault at all! You have paid into an "insurance" system (NI) for the past 20 years, probably longer, how can anybody say that you are a "benefits scrounger". I wish you the best of luck in whatever you decide to do in the future.

second job if ever there really was one was prob cash in hand so no tax or ni which makes him a "tax dodger"which is on a whole new level way way above the "benefits scrounger" he keeps bitching about. in the same bracket as the scummy bankers that caused this whole mess in the first place.

either way you look at it he still talking a crock off ****

no it not bad mannerS

like i said do your homework first...""That's so wrong. For people have full time job, they don't get any discount or benefits"... people who work DO get benefits that they are entitled to claim,working tax credit is something working people can get child tax credit is somethig working people get ..

""Let’s say you have one child and your joint income is £19,000 per year. here are the basics, your entitlement would be as follows:
Basic family element - £545
Child element - £2,690
So, our starting total is £3,235""

right from the tax credit website..

thats about £64 quid a week tax free WORKING PEOPLE can claim, and getting child tax credit or working tax credit means you get free prescriptions as well

like i said go do your homework before you make yourself look stupid!!!

This comes down to the **** in power privatizing everything.

Power, Phone, Rail, Post Office, Water should never turn a profit. People shouldn't need a benefit to afford it because all of us shouldn't be paying so much. The government should take them back and run non profit organisations.
