I love seeing Glen on these threads! aha.. You sure know how to put it to em!
I agree with the reforms, my mother lives in a 3 bed council house, ( I left at 15), and my 17 year old brother currently lives with her.
However, she's an alcoholic, and sleeps on the bloody setee anyway - I think her benefits status should be addressed and so should that darn house,
as I'm not living there, and she doesn't use her bloody room anyway..
Yes, I'm actually discussing my own family, you know why? She needs to learn some responsibility.
Anyway, that's literally just one example of how some British people abuse our system...
However, it runs far deeper than that. When I left at 15 I had no where to go and no one to turn to, unless I wanted a BABY in order to get a free
filthy flat, my only option is sofa surfing. Anyway, I'm 21 now and earn just enough to rent A room.
The social system over here WILL NOT support me, if i'm a British national, none pregnant, and earning pennies.
If I did want the good life, I'd paint my skin yellow/brown and tell them I have 7 kids - I'd soon be given a mansion to live in.
There are multiple issues regarding the social system in the UK, above I've highlighted a few.
Maybe if they raised the minimum wage and halted inflation, us WORKERS would not even need the help of the benefit system... As the set up at the
minute kidah defeats the whole point..
