Homelessness

What is it like being a victim of the welfare reforms and dying a slow death on the streets?
It must be different than being rich, living in a big house, and your only worry being how a cold snap will affect your geraniums. It must be different than not having the misfortune of being too sick or disabled to work and being able to enjoy some of life's comforts. It must be hell for those poor souls.

    How sad it makes me that we live in a greedy, I'm-all-right-Jack world happy to conveniently disregard its most unfortunate and dismiss them as 'a burden on the taxpayer'.
    Does anyone with a properly screwed-on head believe we'd pay a penny less in taxes if employment was zero, or is it a good excuse to quote that nonsense?

    And those people who are found fit for work for example. Surely the same evidence required at an assessment should be presented to any future employer so they can make there own mind up whether they are indeed fit to work

    Hi @Harryfils, is there anything we can help you with today?

    The point is they ARE systematically being found fit for work, are unable, because of their disabilities, to meet with their claimant commitments, and are being sanctioned. Thus they can't afford their rent and end-up on the streets.

    Well it’s a sad world we live in . It seems being able to reach retirement is a task in itself with all stress that goes with it . Perhaps mrs may will be visiting her local job centre with Cameron and Blair you no the ones who don’t do there jobs and retire with obscene amounts of money

    They are monsters. We should educate our children about how heinous Conservative politicians are and the perils of electing them, for the sake of their's and their children's future; one without welfare, a national health service, and a state pension, if they can retire before dropping dead in the workplace. Conservative politicians won't be affected by any of that.

    Yes the children who’s state pension age will be god only no s . Three people I no passed away in the last year all under 60 tell them we are living longer

    They ought to sanction the 'royal family', megalomaniacs all, and Britain's largest benefits family, as well the biggest 'burden on the taxpayers'. What gives them the right to wallow in a life of state-funded idleness whilst better people have to rely on food banks?

    Hi chloe- scope
    You can start by ousting this criminal cabal of a government, reinstating a fair welfare system, comforting the families of those victims of it who have chosen suicide to escape it, and putting the evil culprits on trial. Other than that, I'm fine, thank you.

    Hi, are there any genuinely caring, intelligent people who can see beyond the political and media propaganda demonising society's most vulnerable and unfortunate?
