This signpost probably mirrors my thoughts as I read a Daily Express headline today which declared that 4 million households in the UK today are on benefits.
It was compounded yesterday when a man, who attempted to trip up a guy with a knife making a getaway after a stabbing at the Notting Hill Carnival, was concerned that he would lose his disability benefit if identified! He is Ukranian.
Now I must just pose this question...why the hell are we supporting disabled foreigners? What on earth has he got to offer this country? Who made it possible for him to come here and claim benefits?
This benefits system is clearly out of control. The Coalition must get a grip of it. In the United States they only allow unemployment benefit for 2 years and it is a system that we should adopt. Too many families are being allowed to overclaim for year after year which eventually condemns them to a life of hopelessness and poverty.
This nation should recover our spirit of independence and lose the spirit of dependency. It is up to the government to lead the way and break up this dependency on the state. Human nature dictates that if you are paid more for slacking than you are for working then you will slack! It is time to change.
