Hey UFO, that's pretty radical thinking.
I mean, next you'll be saying things like let's stop MPs demanding we all pay our Council Tax when they pass Bills that say if they own 2 or more houses and use them for 'Official' business, they don't have to pay Council Tax on any property they own or rent. Prezza take note!
Better yet, we could get HMQ to pay her own way. Then we could afford some £120Ms worth of ammo and if we can get Chas and Dave pay for their own wedding, reception and security, we might be able to scrape some dosh together and cobble up some more body armour.
i dont think we should have no welfare at all i just want a system that rewards work and not the other way around!!
I am sure many Americans will agree with me on this, please comment.
.....and for those who imagine the high-spending US doesn't have these kind of problems then all I can say is that you surely missed the 'body armour' row they have had where the families of servicemen have been protesting because they have been funding their relatives body armour.

Sminkey, i dont think the welfare system should be totally abolished
but it is obvious to see that at the moment it is being badly abused by bogus claimants on disability benefits
I dont know why u insist on defending it
when the money could be better spent on our boys at the front line.
BTW i am not trying to hijack the thread ''for a dig at the welfare state'' i just believe that it is the place that needs to be cut down on first unless u think hospitals and schools should go?
I have a perfectly legitimate reason for my views which i cannot fathom why u would be at all ''suspicious'' of.
