This is where the debate about workers and shirkers, strivers and skivers should have led. The skivers and shirkers sucking the money out of your pockets are not the recipients of social security demonised by the Daily Mail and the Conservative party, the overwhelming majority of whom are honest claimants. We are being parasitised from above, not below, and the tax system should reflect this.’

    Pity we can’t be a little more French considering many of us have so many of their genes. Makes one wonder what the hell is wrong with British people to put up with such outright blatant piss-taking of the masses, by these politico’s!

    The French would act. The British either do nothing, or they moronically riot, destroy and steal everything.

    It’s time something were done about private rentals, substandard properties rented out at massively inflated rents, much social housing has been renovated DG/GCH ect and rents are reasonable. Meanwhile six month lets and Rachman landlords populate private letting people have no security in their home as only two months notice has to be given and you’re out also they pick and choose whom to rent too, they should be forced to accept people on benefits otherwise it’s inequality and prejudiced to those usually most in need. Considering by far the largest slice of benefits goes into private landlords pockets should we not expect some sort of value and a decent service for our money.
