HomeBlog29th British Social Attitudes Survey ~ How are you ‘framing’ that? How the Public Massively Overestimates Benefit Fraud

    I have a couple of questions that were missed out on this ‘survey’.
    Q>> What do the public think of the way this government is selling off everything that is public to line their own pockets.
    Q>> How do you feel about having to pay for your healthcare in a few years time ?
    Q>> How do you feel knowing this government is deliberately misleading you over many of the issues in this survey.
    Q>> Welfare being the biggest red herring, put simply, compared to the amount of corporate and individual tax avoidance and fraud, the welfare bill is comparatively small.
    Q>> Lastly comment on those less fortunate than yourselves at your peril, as you can bet your ass it will happen to you, and there will be no one to blame but yourself.
    The last one is not a question at all…………just a statement of FACT.

    Why is there so much analysis yet so little action?

    Wasn’t it Marx who claimed that all philosophers do is describe about how the world is – the point is TO CHANGE IT!!!!!

    I cannot read much more of this because I am full up! Full up with it all – to distraction – to the point where I just want to die – NOW – I’ve had enough……………..

Surely the difficult point is that more than half the British population, not just the Daily Mail readers, now believe that too much is being spent on benefits. Whether we like this or not, that is a statistical fact, which in my experience is backed up by the attitudes I have seen
