The people in the UK have good motorway's, satellite tv, health standards, money for the unenployed, good quality houses, good quality job centre's

Come to Spain, where we have nearly the whole country unenployed, crappy job centres, no abosolute financial help for the unenployed etc and etc and
I dont understand what you people are mad about?
Most of you come over here to Spain and buy houses and beach resort area type's, whilst the people from this country can only look and dream.
You have no shanty towns in the UK. We have load's.
I lived in the UK for a long time and I dont see what the fuss is about, apart from the cameras and a few minor little thing's.
Real problems are when your whole family are unenployed, your father ill, your mother selling homemade baskets door to door etc
I'm VERY offended by your reply for so many reasons.
People like me work two jobs around 65 hours a week, I earn nearly £700 a month, that's before an incredible amount of tax. I live in a two bedroom
small flat and I pay £133 a month on council tax... Petrol costs £1.31 a litre, I can barely afford to live.
I recently sustained a severe injury to my left arm resulting in surgery to repair several tendons, I am unable to do either of my jobs as they are
both physical in nature I am entitled to NOTHING from the government until I am in debt.
I have a friend who dislikes working and I don't blame him, but he literally refuses to work, yet he's given a three bedroom house, job seekers

who're born here.
That's why we're angry, yes it could be worse, but damnit it could be a WHOLE LOT BETTER.
People like me struggle to live here, just basic things too, while the rich are rewarded and those are the types who buy villas in Spain, it's the
I don't know about the problems you face in Spain, but I damn well know about the ones we face here and I'd like to be able to protest and my voice
be heard! Not crushed by the law!
