We were reading a National News Paper today about UK jobless figures, and the government keep saying it stands at just under 2 million right? wrong cannot be, because they gave out the amount of money the Tories say they spend on jobless benefit each month. Right we checked the amount the government pay out, we checked the amount and it works out according to average payment of £70 each out of work person would get, the cost of the billions the government say they pay out to about 12.8 million unemployed people getting benefit, yet the Tories tell us only £1.8 million are jobless. The Police are telling the public here in Suffolk no homes have been burgled since Jan 1st 2013 in Suffolk, yet in my own village paper 121 homes have been entered in my area alone, do you folk get the impression we are being lied to and made to be fools?

Yes every day


It's probably why the billionaires are selling all their bank stocks too.

You gave your your right to self-defense and defense against tyranny so guess what? You get tyranny. It'll come in lies and control until the United States is removed. Then all bets are off because no one will be left to come to your defense.

JSA is £112.50 a fortnight for an under 25, or £142 a fortnight for an over 25. They also receive other benefits like housing benefit which are counted in the figures, sometimes the HB expense can be several times greater than the JSA expense.

Yes and every penny of the JSA is begrudge to you by your own government, even through its your national insurance contributions that pay for said benefit. Dont be out of work for more than six months or they will make you do unpaid work!!! Unpaid work in a country with a minimum wage??? IMHO that does not compute anyway you look at it!

OP, am I correct in reading your population is roughly 53 million people this is coming out of? So....in the neighborhood of 20% actually taking payments for unemployment? I gotta be reading it wrong...right?

Op

i know what your getting at
in all arguments this is my phrase
"In the uk, there is on average 2.6 millions unemployed
in any average, there is only 1.7 jobs available at that time

SO how can it be common sence to import more immigrants when the structure says no

Well this is right what you say, till today I did not know what was going on, but the fact is that everyone who comes to the UK to live, they are only required to work here for 6 months then they sling in the job and are allowed to live on the Min of £300 per week dole, Council Tax & Child allowence, cant go wrong can they?

I suspect that Employment Support Allowance is also included in this figure. This is handed out to those with disabilities who cannot work and those that are mentally ill, these people are not included in the out of work figures. I'd like to see the full breakdown of what payments are included in your magical figures before I start shouting lies to the Government.

Thats what happens when you put the UK's lax Welfare system together with being a member of the EU. I'd like to know which Prime Minster was in charge when European Universal Benefits was first proposed and secondly want to know why the VETO was not Yielded. I suspect it was the labour government as they like to give tax payers money to all and sundry.

I remember not long ago that Racism was a feared word and politically incorrect
racism is slowly being evaporated from society to be replaced with the Terror word
its so easy to implement...swamp the island with immigrants, a few bomb scares...

The person who sold the British people's freedom away, gave all the money too, was Tony Blairs old lady, she was a Human Rights Judge, she wore the trouses in that era and Tony just said when she told him what to say and do in the EU he went along with it to shut her up (like all married men have to do hi hi) but her stupid games really cost us everything during his time in number 10.
