"Cosy ... jobless Danny Creamer and Gina Allan with baby Tullulah-Rose at their taxpayer-funded flat"

Gina could easily earn £110 an hour as an escort, probably more with that pretty month. I am assuming Gina is the one on the right in the photograph...

Rose: Why is Onslow reading the Financial Times?

Onslow: I like to keep an eye on the economy. A bloke in my position has to wonder how long the country can afford him. If we don't get the economy right, people like me are gonna be in trouble! It's the duty of all of us to be concerned about the shrinking pound.

Seems a solution might be to not grant the dole to individuals who are not physically disabled, or are not mentally incapacitated...If you are physically and mentally able to work, even shat jobs like McDonald's, then get out there and work. Life is suffering, get busy.
This would reduce stories like this and perhaps reduce the burden on the dole system...
Or perhaps government sponsered homes should be dorm style...just one apartment building with two families per suite, this would ensure that either you are desperate for a home or encourage you to better yourself as soon as possible.

Flaumig: Think about it. If it were that bad objectively, then children, retired people, and those too sick or infirm to work would be the worst people ever, right? Most people don't feel that way, but show them some folks like this couple and their inner four year old comes out and they start to whinge and cry about how it's just not fair. Life isn't fair, so get used to it you farkin crybabies.


Children, retired people, and those too sick or infirm to work aren't shiatting out more and more kids who will then be raised to hold the same values and thus repeat the process with exponential growth. If we sterilized these assholes before giving them a dime, then nobody would care.

Mean Daddy: s


Are you sure that's this weeks spin? Are welfare recipients living like kings with multiple color TVs, video game consoles, $400 sneakers, and even (gasp!) refrigerators in their homes? Or has all anti-poverty spending been for naught, not lifting a single person out of poverty? Based on this article, I think it's the latter. But I don't hold it against you: it changes so fast it's hard for anyone to keep up.

clapperton: I work with a Guy that likes to play the system. He has a baby with his batshiat crazy girlfriend (she's 21, its her 3rd kid with her 3rd baby-daddy) . When I say batshiat crazy, I'm talking diagnosed, unmedicated, split personality disorder. One personality even tries to kill him sometimes. Needless to say, she's receiving disability and all sorts of other benefits. So back to him, every January and July he calls in to work at least 2 or 3 times a week because he has to recertify for his handouts so he has to show he doesn't make much money. He even brags about it at work. We all biatch about how much of our paychecks is taken out in taxes, and he brags because he is collecting it.


Oh, I'm SO jealous of that lifestyle and the welfare money she's collecting.

The handout certification is probably so he doesn't make too much money to reduce her benefits, as they're together. Once a woman with kids from multiple fathers enters the system, shes better off single. The system is set up to keep men away from their children and out of the woman's household, or him not working if they're in the household. Mom is bat shiat crazy, the dad being around is probably saving the state a lot of foster and other costs.

LiberalConservative: A SOLUTION. Long-term unemployed are required to log a minimum number of hours of community service in order to receive their welfare payments. Ta-da! Suddenly they must work either way, and contribute to society either way. This was done in Australia (blessed Howard by memory) and out came the bleeding heart libtards saying its disgustingly unfair.


I'd say that far enough as long as you made the trust fund kiddies and the people (under 60) who live on investments alone also do community service. I mean if we are talking about the moral imperative to work it should apply to all classes.

To be fair, this is the Sun. They've been known to completely take things out of context in order to humiliate someone in difficult circumstances, in the name of sensationalizing a non-story.

This likely how it went:

"Of course there are people that believe we think ridiculous things, such as: 'We could easily get a job but why would we want to work - we would be worse off.' In reality, we spend 80 hours a week looking for work, but there are no jobs. Businesses say it's the austerity measures."

The part in bold is the portion the Sun printed.

...but healthy individuals like these fuknuts...there should be someone who goes around pounding on these people rendering them legitimately disabled. And the people who defend them are no better, most likely because they have a little freeloading tendencies in them too
