Problem is there are 2 types of claimants.
1. Genuine people, who have worked and put something into the system.
2. People milking the system who have put nothing in and have no intention putting anything in. These people have never contributed in any way to society, but expect everything back in return. They have become the problem with the system.
I know of no other system that would allow you to obtain money when you have not put anything in.
The government has no choice than to make some radical changes, whichever goverment is in charge.
Generational benefit claiments (and we all know a family fitting this discription), who have never worked, never contributed,and show no signs of looking for work. These seriously need to be looked at as these people are the ones who usually moan and say tax the high earners more. What for? To ensure they can carry on sponging from the state? They are already paying tax, and the main thing is, they are working and contributing to society.
I cannot understand anyone who wants to spend their life on benefit, claiming everything from free glasses, free perscriptions,free dentist, free housing,no community tax to pay to winge that they might have to contribute Â£5 towards their rent. Come on, is it really a reason to moan when you are a free loader!
As I see Mike, You must have a massive chip on your shoulder and to think that no one else served in the army but you! I probably left the army before you joined up. The Devon and Dorset regt has a long history behind it....11thg.....39th....54th of foot! I suggest you read it and learn. You must be a child in a mans body. You have no respect and no manners whatsoever. Go back to your day job or night work and earn your well worked cash. People are allowed to have different opinions and are also allowed to air them and just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them bad people or 'scroungers' as you put it. I get a war pension to which you might learn is a wage! Grow up old chap and live a little in the wide open world. The army taught you nothing.
