    The biggest problem we have in the UK is people ripping of the welfare state and simply refusing to work. It's a drain on the decent people who just want to make a decent living and pay their way.

    I'm a socialist, always have been, it's the way I was brought up. As such I very much believe in the concept of "from each according to his means, to each according to his needs". That to me is morally correct. So if someone genuinely cannot work, then let's look after them. That's the type of society we want to be.

    However more and more often I see people who just don't want to work. There are those who simply say "why should I work, I get as much on benefits and get my rent paid for me, save on travel cost etc. Fuck I wouldn't have as much to spend if I worked". I'm sure you've seen them on the TV yourself

    There are also those who make them selves effectively unemployable. They look like a bag of shite, smell and speak horribly. Anyone who they are sent to for an interview immediately think, no way I'm not employing you. I'm not talking about mentals here, I'm talking about those who do it deliberately and there are plenty of them.

    This has two effects. They produce nothing for society and they leech from it. Feck they even create a new generation to keep the drain on the rest of us going.

    I've had enough of it. If someone refuses to work, then give them fuck all money. Even if there's no jobs, get them to do something useful. Cut a pensioner's grass or something. we're already paying them, so let's get something back for it.

    People who are actively seeking employment are an entirely different thing. It's the buggers who have dcided not to work. The "why should I bother" brigade.
