Perhaps they could put tents on that piece of land that you professed to own, mark? Or, perhaps you could offer them meaningfully paid work from all those jobs that you're not creating - so that they can aspire to be like you? That's after you've finished fallaciously attacking their dignity while they struggle, of course.

Don't worry, £75,000 discounts (or £100,000 in London) under Right To Buy will soon put them on the path of true righteousness.

The Daily Mail readers comments seem to suggest that most of their readership and not sympathetic towards the beer-drinking fag-smoking Sky-watching masses who enjoy the benefits of a caring society that provides benefits for such activities. That was unexpected.

The best of the social housing will sell for a song to those fortunate enough not to have suffered BTL scumlords, and a few years down the line the lucky recipients will sell to same scumlords to rip off their less fortunate brethren.........like before.

Easy pleasure outweighs priorities.
For me if I am belt-tightening then trips to the pub, that day out to the seaside, etc, take the back seat. I consider myself well educated, middle-working class if there is such a thing... and don't have Sky, don't smoke, and don't go down mecca bingo..... I pay my bills, and receive no welfare benefits. You have to be cruel to be kind...those on benefits need to show some responsibility - and told that it is not their right to use 'our money' to spend on non-essential purchases. 'But me fags is me only pleasure!' I hear them scream.

The does seem to be a contingent of heartless on this forum, remember "there but for the grace of god goes I"?
Try actually base you prejudice on facts not on the facist rants of the daily mail.

i think we should refuse to pay taxes while people on benefits have a far better standard of living than most hard working people paying taxes

8. i think there would be a fair number of benefit scroungers drinking their beer watching cable TV, looking at me thinking "there for the grace of god goes i"

i go to the 9 to 5 rat race eveyday from my shared rented ex-council estate flat, where 17 year old in flash cars and blinging phones probably paid for by illegally subletted council flats and dodgy motor insurance scams stare at me and think 'wot a tool'

Are you familiar with Stanislavsky?

One of the precepts of method acting is:

Maximum result for the minimum of effort. (aka efficiency)

If you're all working so hard, why the f**k is the country about to enter the middle ages?
