“Reality is settling in...”

Stop sweating the small stuff.

Mick and Mairead Philpott, who were convicted of killing six of their children in a fire, have raised the welfare debate

LMMFSassyAO!!!!!!!

They’re bamboozled as to why the down-at-heel haven’t peeled their eyes away from the Jeremy Kyle Show, got off their subsidised sofas and marched to Whitehall to demand:‘Leave our welfare payments alone.’

Where well-off, Left-leaning do-gooders in Britain’s leafier suburbs are weeping into their macchiato coffees over the Tories’ trims to welfare spending, the poor seem unmoved. What is wrong with these ungrateful urchins, plummy-voiced radicals wonder?

Welfare recepients are living the good life. LOL. Whatever. The amount of money they get is a joke. It's nothing. No welfare recepient is living the "good life". Yeah, they're getting a handout, but at the end of the day, they're still stuck in shi##y neighborhoods, not really living any kind of quality life. Sure, they might have a few trinkets, but their stuck in a hole. I don't resent them. I feel sorry for them. And by " them", I'm not referring to any specific color. There are all kinds of welfare recepients and they're all society's bottom dwellers.

Congratulations. You gamed the system. Good for you to take the initiative to better yourself and your family. It's no so hard.

I only hope 'Morality' features you as a brother that broke through to the other side. Enjoying the better things in life is a reward in itself. Nothing better than a positive success story.

Nice try. I doubt your living in a " nice house". You're living on handouts, which means you're far from wealthy. Even the people who think they're gaming the system really don't have jack. You'd be better off getting yourself educated or a trade so you could make real money. That way you could move up in society and stop being a bottom dweller. Welfare recepients only impress other welfare recepients. Just some free advice.

The greatest myth....
It is there to help people.
Fact is it is a system designed to keep people dependant,ignorant,and immobile.

I think it's really payback, instead of paycheck. LOL
