    IMPORTANT NOTICE: UPDATE: 1/10/17 - due to the pressure of exams through October & November the daily upload of multiple news items will cease with immediate effect. Occasional clips of significant importance may be uploaded, but not in the usual quantity.
    21/9/17 - This channel is now sitting on only one copyright strike (expiring 30/11/17). As long as no further strike is incurred, the planned rotation to Still Incorrigible will be on hold.
    You can view my blog here: imincorrigible.wordpress.com/
    My other ESfilms channels search for: "Still Incorrigible" & "Incorrigible Forever"
    Original notice: As a result of receiving a "copyright strike" this channel will be going on hiatus shortly. If a channel receives three such strikes it is automatically deleted by ESfilms. The primary purpose of my ESfilms channels is the preservation of a record of historical events as reported at the time and the receipt of a copyright strike imperils that goal.
    As a result, in the coming weeks, new uploads will cease on this channel and resume on "Still Incorrigible". Future videos will contain more info as it becomes available.

My question is how is it for centuries Great Britain a world power back then never would dream of a dole queue therefor what are we doing giving money we don't have to young strong fit able-bodied people to slob about all day and our elderly disabled people live in squalor, how about the idea that if you bring up your sons and daughters to be bone idle bums let their parents feed them, poverty is a choice hand in hand with sloth, this is modern Great Britain in the 21st century like some God-forsaken communist back wash shit hole full of professional beggars

i got a taxi last week the guy told me the week after i wouldnt be able to get one unless i used the application. yesterday i couldnt get one. id told him does he know were the apps heading,its use the app they dont need operators before long its self driving cars,unemployed taxi drivers or not enough work leaving them needing universal credits. my point is that universal credits soon is for nearly all of us. we have give artificial intelligence thru sat nav,phones,computers,satalites all they need. the global elite dont want us having anymore opportunity to make it bigtime and they will ruin successful business and anyone managing,this is for all of us who cant afford to support ourself for life already. after this comes social credit system were you say anything against your goverment online you get no points cant fly cant shop cant get any universal credit and this is the truth we must stop this now

Before there were no benefits and people suffered. With benefits people still suffer. So cash benefits don't work. Subsidizing someone for life or to have a baby just doesn't work. Isn't this a case for getting rid of benefits if they are not going to work anyway. If it is going to be cash handouts how about everyone gets a one off payment and that's your lot to be fair - make of it what you will. Now if just providing cash handout worked, then there would be fewer and fewer people needing them as time went on. Something else must be implemented to see if it works. Everyone needing support is put into government dormitories, food is rationed, clothing is standard issue and the basic services are provided. In demand skills are taught and practiced. In demand education is provided. Irresponsibility with having children means compulsory sterilization. There will be no more doing what you want if you can't pay for it, when everyone else has to do what they don't want like working in old age care, cleaning, cooking, transporting goods and security. Those disabled can retain benefits but can't have children. If they can support themselves without benefits then they can have children.

When you are on a part time fully flexible contract with an employer who won't increase your hours to full time you can't even get a second job to make your hours up to 35 hours per week. The term "fully flexible" means flexible for the employer and not the employee. For example, if you are a 20 hour fully flexible contract you have to be available to work any time the employer wants you to work. It's just as bad as a zero hours contract.

Im on Universal Credit, since i switched to the new system in July i've had to go to a food bank 5 times.Before i switched i recieved payments twice a month, but that didn't carry over and i wasn't told.Even my Tenancy was put at risk when 4 people from the council came to my door because they hadn't recieved the housing benefit for 3 months either, something totally out of my control!Also , when you phone up, expect to be hung up on too.

the government will not admit it's not working.,they will carry on regardless.,how can Iain Duncan Smith, sleep at night tiger the poor.,the problem with universal tax credit is when you ring them up they don't even know what to do.,there's always going to be a part of a society unemployed regardless there's not jobs for everyone so what do the government do punish them .,I'm glad George Osborne's gone because he hated people at the bottom.,this proves how out of touch the government are I want to send a message Theresa May if she thinks brexit is going to be the fall conservative party.,think again.,this is not about people managing their own money.,this is a way that the government can stop all your money in one go if you don't do what they say

Universal Credit could work but only if, and that is a big if, the government were more realistic in how they treat people. Ats things stand with this system, it is not fit for purpose and punishes those it is meant to help. There are too many stupid runes that could see you lose your.benefit see. And those people like the disabled who rely on state help will be among the most affected by the system.

No holiday pay No sick pay No U.C I also had 2 parents work 50 hours a week. It never killed me or them. I agree I couldn't live on £80 job seekers allowance when I once had to sign on. That was why I work full time and pay for my own pension. No you can't stay at home and say you are self employed have a occupation half payed for by the government. Didn't labour make a real mess of the giveaway benefit system. Get a fucking full time job like the rest of us.

Well. What I see is a bunch of delusional ppl. If as a self employed you cannot support yourself, get another job. How can grown up ppl completely be dependent only just on a support system??? Why don't you get another job if a self employed photographer is not paying enough?? Good point. It would be unfair she says.. Well, I work a full time job and never ever was given a penny. How about that?? I am not willing to support people's hobbies and pass times from my tax. I am sorry. Ppl who really need support they should get it, but a delusional spoiled adult who cannot understand what it means to be responsible for their own life, no sorry. I cannot dream of having a child if I cannot support myself. She probably never had a job that paid her cos she is a "photographer". Pfff. Grow up lady.

Please, allow me to share one of the most beautiful hungarian folk song with you. It's in modern interpretation.

+Dana If your parents were Hungarian German people (or at least one of them was) then chances are that they would have been deported from Hungary after WW2. They probably just left before they got deported, it would have made sense. It also would explain why they didn't like to talk about it. They were Hungarian and their only "sin" was that their ancestors came from Germany. I can imagine how it feels being rejected by your own country/government. I am from Southern Hungary where there are still lots of "Svàb" people. My mum's best friend is one of them and also my boyfriend's (he is also Hungarian) great grandmother was a German woman. It would be a good idea for you to do the AncestryDNA test. You could find relatives in Hungary or elsewhere and learn about your ancestors. I did mine months ago and I found my 3rd cousin in Chicago. He is the great grandson of a close relative who emigrated to Canada in the 20's. My dad has always been talking about them and that we should find them in America. He was so happy when I told him that I emailed my 3rd cousin and he answered. Here are a few links about "Svàb" people and the deportation. http://www.revisionist.net/german-expulsions.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danube_Swabians

+Reka Szabo - Reading of your grandfather's captivity and true oppression reminds me how blessed our lives are, yet how quickly it can all change. All I know is my father was born and raised outside of Gyor, Hungary somewhere near the Austrian border. My parents spoke little of the past and brushed away our curiosity. They were all about starting a new life for their family. Of course I was too young to understand how much they lost, who they lost, and the emotional scars they carried with them. If the Svab were mostly farmers then that would make sense, as I do know my mother lived on a farm as a child.

+Dana I don't even know what to say. It's very moving. Funny how you start talking to someone on the internet and when you learn about the person your approach is changing. I am sorry that you had to experience that terrible loss so early in your life. I can understand that it was a tough time to live in Hungary after WW2 especially because of the mad communism/socialism, it was a dictatorship. My grandfather was in captivity in Russia for years, when they released them he got home only to experience even more oppression. It really is a shame that you couldn't learn more about the culture and your heritage. Your mother probably was what we call "Svàb"- basically German people've been residing in Hungary for hundreds of years. If you could tell me where your dad is from geographically, I would probably be able to tell you what he called himself. If u are interested.

Try watching 40% of your money wander out the door without your consent. I want massive tax breaks for single income families who are actually paying their way and suffering for it. Thats fair.

What people who have never experienced unemployment don't realise is that there are also schemes that were in place by the EU where they pay charities and other companies (many foreign) to help the long time unemployed get into employment. The companies used to get monetary incentives if they could get the people into employment within two years and claimants have no choice but to go to these programmes. Many of these companies have jobs which are exclusive to them so if you're unemployed and looking for work independently you won't find them anyway. There'll never be enough jobs though because if there's no management of migration then the population size is uncontrollable and there will be more people than jobs as is the case now. There also doesn't seem to be any way for the government to penalise companies who decide that they don't want to employ someone for no good reason. For example if you apply for a job but you're over qualified it's currently ok for companies to just decide not to even let you get to the interview stage and they don't have to explain why. If the government was actually trying to curb unemployment what should happen is that if people actually meet the requirements for the job they should be guaranteed an interview and then offered employment unless there's a very good reason not to employ them. Too often people who are actively seeking work don't get it merely because interviewers take a dislike to them and that kind of ignorance should be penalised heavily. It should also be acceptable to dismiss people for incompetence. If that was the case then people who can't actually do their job would make way for competent people and we'd see a different dynamic.

I was at the local advice shop today. I work 20 hours a week and up until this month, my rent was getting paid direct to the council. I received circa £104 a month universal credit on top of my wages. This month however, only one weeks rent has been paid. So I have done my budget spreadsheet for the next 3 weeks and I am now £79 short of being able to pay my bills. That doesn't include money to live on. How fucking more useless can the tories get?

UC has been nothing but problematic for me. I was fired after being off sick for 3 months following the deaths of my best friend and grandmother. UC deducted the holiday pay I was owed but declined to take from the employer until they fire me. So Universal Credit took my holiday from me *and* my housing benefit for my first month. After a 6 week wait, my first payment was £89. I was sent for a health assessment because of my depression, anxiety and arthritis (I'm only 29) and apparently despite not being fit to work, the only help I get is being allowed to earn slightly more in a month from a job before they make a deductions based on income.

Fred Last nor to mention that if you are in said fields of employment you cannot guarantee a regular work flow or consistent income. Let's take the taxi driver for example, 1 day you are hired to travel say 60 miles (1 way journey) then 2 weeks later you are hired to travel 30 miles. Jobs like arn't consistent due to the very nature of the work! I may have explained this badly but I do hope the message isn't lost.

FOOD BANKS HAVE SPREAD, BEDROOM TAX, STARVATION AND DESTITUTION, ALL CAUSED BY TORY POLICIES, WHILE THEY LINE THEIR POCKETS WITH THE LATEST PAY RISES THEY GIVE THEMSELVES!! AND, WHILE THE RICH REFUSE TO PAY THEIR TAXES BY HIDING THEIR EARNINGS IN OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS!!! WHY ARE THE TORIES ATTACKING, CONSTANTLY THE WEAKEST WITHIN OUR SOCIETY?! BENEFIT FRAUD ACCOUNTS TO 0.005 PER CENT, WHILE TAX FRAUD BY THE RICH RUNS IN THE BILLIONS!!!! And those who are employed within the DWP, THEY THEMSELVES NEED TO ANSWER TO THE PEOPLE AND BEFORE THE HAGUE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS! Those who work within the DWP could easily WALK OUT IN PROTEST OVER WHAT THEY ARE BEING ORDERED TO DO! But they DO NOT! The people of our country should HOLD THEM TOO, RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS THEY HAVE CAUSED! There will come a day, when those within the DWP AND the Tories, will have to answer for what they have done to their own people, BEFORE A COURT OF LAW!!!!

Mark Norville No muppet, labour created dependency. This is socialism and thus the UK is feeling the bite for it. That is why there is very little incentive for businesses to be innovative in creating jobs. Get rid of the benefit system, lower the corporate tax rate by half and incentavise businesses that hire extra people I am willing to bet there will be a ton of jobs for the majority of people in the UK. It really is simple when you let businesses to keep the money they make rather than allowing the government to legally steal it.

This universal credit program needs to be binned immediately - if for no other reason, than everyone on it will only need to hear Corbyn say he will scrap it and the Tories are finished. Their monstrous welfare programs are what will kill them unless they open their eyes now.

Cold Shower dam right soon the only people you see going into the shops will be the suits and the am alright Jack people. That's if they don't turn into ghost towns we're just about their anyway half the shops are shutting down everywhere. But here's the kicker all the well off people will be getting robbed on exiting said shops because of the mass starvation people will be suffering.

In tory Britain many things are forbidden.... For the poor. Ian Duncan Smith has realised his life's ambition and restored slavery to Britain. Lots of dialogue about U C but still it goes ahead despite everything. The ordinary people of this country are now abandonded to the most bestial regime in modern times.

i have my son from monday to friday every week, his mum refuses to surrender any benefits she gets for him and although i applied for child benefit i was rejected because his mum is already claiming it, i am on universal credit and get 727 quid a month because, despite my situation, because i am not receiving any benefits for my son i am classed as an adult out of work, i do not have a lot of free time to work and am able to offer little in the way of flexibility but i did find a minimum wage job on a sunday that i do every week and because of my circumstances my benefits are reduced by 63p for every pound that i earn which essentially means i earn approximately £15 for working 6 hours on a sunday

Yep it happened to me. I started driving cabs and the universal credit which was being used to pay my rent was cut off. Lost the flat and was also charged almost 500 quid council tax for a property I wasn't living in by the cheeky bastard council. I also couldn't work the hours needed, some 13+ a day 7 days a week just to make a pittance. This Tory government are hypocrites and criminals. Expecting people to work for fuck all while they earn good money and get meals on expenses. Using the austerity nonsense as an excuse while borrowing more money than the past five governments combined. Indebting my children and farther generations to a life of poverty while they sip fine wine and the blood of virgins.

+cob1965 No. You are NOT ALLOWED to own a not for profit for the sake of self employment when on Universal Credit or on Working Tax Credit for that matter. You are wrong in this particular case. Why should the Tax Payer pay for your "enterprise" when you are not trying to make a profit? Working Tax Credit have had this rule for months now. Have you not received their letter that specified this? I am sorry to hear that, if that is the case.

Yes, that is exactly right, Jaffaffa. If you are self employed and on Universal Credit, you HAVE to earn Minimum Wage, which is stupid.
