Lazy, scrounging bastards
A report this week highlighted by the Daily Telegraph reveals that the number of households in this country where no adult has ever worked has increased to the highest level since the Office of National Statistics started keeping records 16 years ago.
There are now a staggering 370,000 households in the UK where no-one has ever worked, so this raises some simple questions :
(1) Are these people actually unable to find work or is it simply that they don't feel the need to bother?
(2) Is our benefits culture so out of control that people actually better off staying at home?
(3) How did these people get a home to lounge around in when hard working people can't get a mortgage?
To find the answers, look at the statistics. The number of these households has doubled in the last 15 years. That's 15 years predominantly under a Labour government. A Labour government that believes in redistribution of wealth.
Look at the number of people who decided to come off disability benefit when they were told that they would have to be medically assessed.
Look at the ridiculous Human Rights legislation that promises so much to those that know how to exploit it.
Look at the recent case of Moira Pearce in Gillingham who is hawking herself round local charities begging for handouts because she can't support her 10 children by four different men in her four bed roomed house in Kent on the paltry £31,200 a year she gets in benefits.
Yes, there are people out there with problems that genuinely deserve a helping hand. People who are trying their best.
And then there are people like Moira...
