Are they in work, though? Claimants forced into workfare come off the unemployment register as do those on zero hour contracts. Someone can work for one hour and be deemed ‘in work’. The working poor have to be topped up with tax credits. It’s disgusting. Then there are those who can not navigate the complicated system and give up and don’t bother to claim. Illegal sanctions also ensure that these people come off the unemployment figures. Homelessness has risen dramatically with an increase in young people.Those with no address or a certain age can’t claim, they’re NOT employed but don’t count towards the figures either. They manipulate the figures. The quality of jobs just isn’t there either. Low paid and no security, for the growing working poor. National insurance is just that, an insurance policy for when you need it. There is no safety net now. If I’ve paid into the system I expect my insurance to pay out. Sanctions are not only ethically dubious they are illegal!

Continuous training needs to be emphasized as there are few jobs that will last decades with little change. Education at an early age must discourage students from thinking they are born to rely on the government. Rent consumes a huge chunk of wages. Rents need to be drastically reduced and controlled. New buildings like modular homes must be encouraged and rolled out to accommodate demand, to quickly create the housing, at a cost below traditional builds and at a much higher spec than traditional builds. Many of the chronic illnesses and conditions such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity can be vastly improved by fasting, exercise and consuming garden grown produce (like that available from victory gardens of the past). Genetic screening must be introduced to reduce the numbers of people born with extremely bad disabilities and illnesses. These measures should deliver vast cuts in government expenses, help most renters, taxpayers and those on low incomes. The past social system has rewarded non workers to keep having children, now it doesn't. This should never have been encouraged to begin with. If people don't plan they create many problems into the future. In some less developed countries parents who keep having children that they can't afford are sterilized. Count yourself lucky in the UK, to know you can still act irresponsibly without getting what is deserved.

I just had to give up my job as I have a back problem and had to keep to 5 working days every 2 weeks but pay £200 travel expenses each month. (No local work). Travel expenses aren't taken into account and I could afford it under Working Tax Credits but not UC. For me UC = unemployment.

kevin Harrison It happened long before then M8 I was young near the bottom of the pile in the building game yet I could save 50 quid a week and me and the bird could eat out three times a week I was becoming a pretentious prick about the wine, then we got thatcher so god knows what a tradesman was earning obviously enough to get greedy and turn on ordinary working blokes that our Labour party was obviously looking after. So we got what we deserved I didn't vote for the bitch and I'm too old to worrie about anything but my grandkids. We need a way to outlaw greed and corruption its the only way to keep things right. We need a way to ban greed and it needs to be precise and punitive, and a way to make corruption so illegal ppl are terrified to chance it that may seem off the subject but if you delve into it deep enough you will realise it will solve most problems.

+Nigel Palmer Hi Nigel. Yes you are right. From the late 80s onwards people got more greedy and selfish. Council House sales, privatisations of utilities etc have all contributed to this. Unfortunately the genie is out of the bottle and we won't be able to put it back in. I do fear for so many people in our country now. What we need is common sense and some kind of 'cross party' think tank if you like. If the Tories continue like this (and they are convinced they're right) heaven knows what it will end like. This greed is good philosophy is having devastating consequences for millions.

kevin Harrison I would like to agree but it's not true, Thatcher got elected because every 35-year-old plumber and sparky got greedy they were all doing so well all they wanted was a cheap council house wich Maggy promised them, the other problem was when the Unions started getting the blokes % pay rises that was the day they said fk the cleaner, cleaners don't deserve as much as me, that's when you got wage differentiation and all the ppl starting scrambling for a bit extra so the wealthy are well within there rights to make that differential as big as they can the working class said fk the ppl below them so the wealthy are right not to feel guilty fkn the ppl below them, we have got what we deserve since we took the bribe of the 10k council house at that minute we stopped caring about each other in a sense we got corrupted, I will add I argued with a shed full of heating engineers much older than me and told em what they were I had t start having my lunch with the foreman.

Did that bloke just say there are mothers in work and sound proud of it does anyone believe its good that mums have to go to work instead of looking after there kids, he calls working for min wage an opportunity for gods sake someone punch the man, a Job and a purpose I turned down jobs because it would cost more to do the work than the job was worth imagine getting up having to eat breakfast catch a bus or drive just so you can't afford to pay your bills bloody stupid idea I have a Niece works day and night it will end up killing her its, not fair or reasonable but her mum is a Victorian Tory so its been drummed into her she is expected to work herself to death and have no fun could be another suicide waiting to happen, you gta love a Tory, I remember when Maggy was trying t get elected she had posters of dole ques one million in this country and that included the sick. Tax the wealthy and the bankers close the loopholes, and he didn't let anyone answer the Tory properly, did TM say plays by the rules does she mean like the bankers and the tax avoiding wealthy?
