    It may also cause difficulties paying at smaller shops, like corner shops which may be the only ones accessible to people with mobility difficulties.

    I expect ATOS will open their own approved shops, with £5.00 petits pains de pain et gruau and loads of lovely investments in the new venture by certain unmentionable slime.

    I think this is an excellent idea for the politico-rats on benefits in Westminster, to aleve us all having to pay for their flat-flipping, and the general mismanagement of all that money we give them, not to mention of course, – all that they steal!

    They prepare the ground for a war that they will not see coming. For when the ‘enemy’ seems completely overwhelmed and controlled by all manner of factors – that, surely is the moment to fear it the most.. To paraphrase Sun Tzu – ‘The Art of War’ – Beware the Army that marches ‘for a cause’ – for they are inexhaustible!

    I knew there was something behind all this horse meat. Obviously designd or the new welfare cards, just some idiot sent some to the shops before the cards were ready.

    Firstly I cannot see it being workable. I am not sure how much I should take this threat seriously. As a political tool its extreme and against human rights.

    Which Makes me alert for the introduction of their intended plan that will be their compromise and seem less extreme than the proposed plan. Yet still be an extreme in comparison

    Lost and stolen cards will leave people totally destitute and under suspicion.

    The marvelous thing about cash cards is that they can be cloned! It does not matter how much thought goes into the security, there is always some one who can circumvent it.
    Banks have the money to pursue the criminals who abuse atms and clone. Think of the chaos that will ensue when we get welfare cash cards.
    Food stores will have numerous hits and will not have the cash or technology to pursue the cloned cards. It will be a free for all and the persons wronged by the DWP wont give a damn…….

    Supposedly we’ll only be allowed to shop in Lidl or Aldi’s? Deductions if one uses a food bank. Maybe wooden clogs from Clarks? What absolute shits we have in Westminster.

  • GEOFF REYNOLDS February 9, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Have the government seriously considered the mandatory supply of horse meat products for the poor and disabled?
    While the toffs feast on venison we could eat Mr ed.
    Our welfare cards could be programmed to trigger an alarm at the till if we tried to eat food that was only intended for the wealthier and able bodied in society.
    Surely we could be served after dark, around the back of the stores where ordinary, good people would not have to cast eyes upon us. Any rotting meat or vegetables or out of date food could be sold to us at a premium, therefore negating the unnecessary rubbish collections.
    Any of us forced from our homes could live in skips and be branded on the forehead and, and, and……………
    And as for ALEC SHELBROOKE, the insignificant piece of shit……

    These have been brought in in this part of the world, first in Australia in the middle of last year, then here in New Zealand (although here, they’re “just” for teenagers. (For now that is – in time they will spread of course.)
    Scary stuff!

    To put it in lay mans terms, anyone who pokes their head above the parapet is asking to get their heads blown off….
    Believe me, or believe me not, soon one of the bastards will get their heads blasted to buggery.
    Time is on our side, every step they take is an indication of the hatred toward the lowest in society.
    The meek shall inherit the earth….
    Religion is not a part of me, but build a system that only a fool can use and only a fool will use it!
    They are going to be the stepping stone of their own downfall, the seeds are sown….
    Reap what you sow you sad bastards!
    KEEP LOOKING BEHIND YOU…..

    Stay calm and keep resolve all, as we know it’s not the first time these Tory Daleks have burned their own soulless organs, and remember how long they were in/on the dark-side of politics from Thatcher’s days. No one voted them in this time, but a weakling New Cloaked Labory Party gave them the opportunity to scheme with treacherous Liberals, to crawl back in.

    Our time will come.

    “expenditure approved by the state” Hmm…

    I foresee a headline that reads: “Disabled diabetic dies in street after failing to buy chocolate with a welfare card.”

    I just hope it isn’t me.

  • Stephen Jewell February 17, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    To pay my bills and direct debits I need to be able to vary my expenditure on food and power needs, some weeks I stock up with food and power so that I can then pay regular bills, spending less on food and using what is in the freezer and putting less electric on the key because I have managed to store a bit of credit on the meter on subsequent weeks. To do this I need cash, and the flexibility to, some weeks rob Peter to pay Paul.
    If the people coming up with these ideas had to manage on benefit with no access to savings or credit, they would understand this!
