THE GROWTH OF ENTITLEMENT CULTURE…

By David Vance On February 24th, 2014

Under Labour, many people discovered that it PAID them NOT to work. Oddly enough, they grew to like this.

BRITAIN’S top benefits scroungers were £300 a week better off on the dole than the average working family before welfare reforms, it has emerged  Figures reveal how 317 households milked the system for a decade because their claims went largely unchallenged. Collectively they were £100,000 a week better off than workers on an average wage of £26,000. Their taxpayer-funded lifestyles were exposed after Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith embarked on a root-and-branch reform of the UK’s complex benefits system. Now handouts to almost 40,000 jobless families have been capped at £500 a week.

That’s still too much in my view but it is at least a start! The fact is that working should not be seen as an option but a necessity. The GREATER the difference in income between the gainfully employed and the idle the better! We have it precisely back to front.
