Benefits Britain

Recommended Posts

My brother had cause to tell his son`s new girlfriend to remember to switch off toilet/landing light, as she kept leaving them on. Her reply was "Sorry, we don`t bother at home cuz mum is on benefits". I`m still seething at this a week after. Also, during a visit to the library, i noticed a sign informing customers of a rise in fines for late return of books. At the bottom it stated that this did not apply to those on benefits, who would continue to pay nothing. What a surprise this country is in the state it is.

What area is that?

Overdue Book Charges in Oldham. Can't see any exemptions. Surely dolies have more time to return the books?

Adults- 12p per day to a maximum of £6.00

Children (up to 12 years of age)- No Charge

Teenagers (13-17 years)- 2p per day to a maximum of £2.00

Over 60s- 2p per day to a maximum of £2.00

No need. They're borrowing on their kids' library cards.

A friend at work was discussing how he had been asked by his girlfriend to move out of her flat, her reason was so she could become financially independent again. While you may say this is a reasonable and honourable request it transpires that she was on benefits that covered all of her living expenses, council tax and rent and when he moved in the benefits stopped and he started paying them out of his own pocket.

These days benefits = financial independence.

Priceless.

But she is being absolutely rational here - don't blame her! By having him move out, she gets more - living expenses PLUS he probably gets to spend money on her on top that at present she doesn't see. If he cant afford to look after himself AND treat her, she will probably find someone else soon enough who can. Blame the system. Write to your MP highlighting the counter-incentives, and write to the local media and council. Tell everyone in your family. Don't blame the girl (symptom), blame the benefits system (root cause). The only way to change things is to make as many people as possible angry that the idea of the safety net has been so twisted over 50 years.

Its sobering to remember that this country was at its most powerful when the underclass did not have the vote. Even the Ancient Greeks, creators of democracy only permitted noblemen to vote.

I discovered this too except in relation to the older generation (pensioners). There was a book I wanted to borrow from the library and it was supposed to have been returned two weeks previously. I asked the librarian about this and asked if the person keeping the book overdue would be fined. She told me that because the person who had taken the book out was an "elderly gentleman", there would be no fine and he could return it late and not have to pay anything :blink: . F**king unbelieveable!

That is precisely what feminism has come down to - a free ride for the girls, men can get lost.

Yep so much better when "we" sent the underclass (probably your relations and mine) off to die in foreign fields in their millions to protect the interests of the uber-wealthy. The same elite who had siezed half the globe and thought nothing of wiping out the native populations and seizing all the assets.

Why do you think the ******* Elites allowed it all to happen?

They knew it would destabilise and destroy social cohesion and it was also at least a double whammy against the population as they could now also screw women of their extra wage (thru house price rises) by doubling up incomes needed to buy/pay for an ordinary hovel.

Leaving the kids in the hands of strangers for most of the week - is what it's all about!

It is all supported by twisted benefits system, massive deliberate bias of judgements in the law courts given against men.

Divide and conquer, destroy the family social structures, It's all part of their satanic masterplan!

Ever wondered why todays kids 'binge drink' away their time off, to get out of their minds as fast as possible in todays 'society' - more than any other time in the past?

Ever wundered why kids are suffering from all these 'made up' new diseases and classified as this and that?

They are a direct consequence of the path the elite's education and other manipulative brainwashing methods are working.

You are given a 'medical' reason for your fekked up childs weird behavioural problems!

Wait till the Elites introduce the new 'forced' religion they have lined up for you, once they have you all on your knees!

I strongly believe there should be no representation without taxation.

We all pay ie VAT, even kids do , sweets etc.

My calc 55% of all income goes to Govt one way or another.

No "we" dont. Only people who earn money pay any tax. If I give you £100 and you buy something with that, you didnt pay any tax. I paid it.

If you think this idea through, you will realise that state employees pay no tax either.

What about those whom spend loaned money.

I suppose if they are going to pay it back via their earnings then yes.

You shouldnt think of money. Instead think of work and effort, that is turned into money via your pay packet.

A portion of the work that you do is taken as profit by your employer, you work hours for them.

A bigger portion of your work is taken away from you as tax. It may be given to those who dont work, like pensioners, unemployed people etc.

You get to keep the rest.

So all tax is paid out of work, no other place to get it from.

That's why I said earnings rather than just money.

Where I am working at the moment, 3 of us take it in turns to bring a packet of biscuits in. So when we have a cup of tea we can have a biscuit or two.

3 more people have joined the office, all who like a biscuit but none of which actually bother to bring any biscuits in. Often when the original 3 go for a biscuit they find there are none left, and they have all been eaten by the non contributing parasites.

Just like the benefits system, our system has been overwhelmed by the non contributing elements. Eventually everyone will realise that there is little benefit for them in giving their money to others.

Do tell, who do they want us to worship? I'll start now and be a High Priest by the time it's the state religion. ;)

As for why the young binge drink. 1) Because they've got the cash, and 2) Because they won't starve if they don't turn up for work on time the next day.

If you want personal responsibility you have to reform the welfare state. It doesn't have to be abolished, but it has to be moved from an entitlement system to a charity system, like the poor houses of yesteryear.

There was a time when if you applied for benefits an inspector called and if you owned anything that could be sold you got no cash. Then a board of worthies considered your case, and if you were deemed deserving you got a one-off payment. These local busybodies got to know the down-and-outs as individuals and if they were drinking or not attending church or not really trying to get a job they got nothing. The poor boards had a certain amout of cash to hand out and they made sure the most deserving got it.

Now that's a welfare system that works!

Was that in the time before the Renaissance?

Don't blame the girl (symptom), blame the benefits system (root cause).

As her single largest benefit by far will be her housing allowance, I think you'll find that excessive RENTS are the root cause.

When people can't afford to live because their rent consumes their entire income, they in order to live they must have their rent paid. The solution isn't to stop paying their rent, it's to eliminate EVERYONES rent altogether.
