    No, I didn't get the £12 winter fuel allowance either! Did anyone else?

    Looks like it's only for those on benefits, unfortunately.

    Ask your mother did she get money when she took care of you Instead of going to work.

    no, it was actually you jumping to conclusions. the benefit is primarily for the disabled and elderly. it is not simply for the lazy that don't work. so your comment was assumed to be targeted at those that actually do receive it. .

    Whilst I am not going to comment either way on the sentiment of the message... the post does clearly state:

    "brilliant.... so people who cant be arsed working get money when its cold. fantastic."

    So the suggestion it is people who choose not to work (who are able to) as opposed to those who have no choice.

    agree to differ.

    this benefit is not paid to those that cannot be 'arsed'. therefore it can be seen that the poster was suggesting those that actually do get it cannot be 'arsed' to work. now that could be lack of knowledge of the poster or perhaps not.

    LOL Honda

    If a person is on benefits and 'chooses' not to work when they should be it could be described as who cant be arsed working so I think you're trying to find an issue here that doesn't exist.

    what part of 'agree to differ' did you not understand ?

    Just because you say that doesn't stop your statement being incorrect.
