The shrieks of protest from those elements of social parasitism are great today. Why? Well….
A government-imposed cap on many benefit payments nationwide is beginning in four London boroughs. Couples and lone parents in Haringey, Enfield, Croydon and Bromley will not receive more than £500 a week while a £350 limit applies to single people. The cap is set to be imposed across England, Scotland and Wales between July and September. Jobseeker’s allowance, income support, child and housing benefit count towards it, but not disability benefits. The move is part of efforts to cut spending; the amount is said to reflect the average working household income.
It seems that those MOST affected will be those with larger families. Good. Why? Well, the average UK family is less than 2, so we are not a Nation of large families. However the average family size of those who come here from the third world is around 5. And they love to come to London to guzzle our soft Welfare benefits. This is a SMALL step towards saying to these people you can have as many kids as you want, just make sure YOU fund them. Do not expect the taxpayer to fork out to sustain your fecundity.
However I do have a problem with the cap. It is set WAY too high. Why should those who don’t work expect to receive the same income average as those who do? That is wrong. It needs cut back MUCH more so that we send the simply message that work pays and sloth doesn’t.
