Labour joined forces with Church of England bishops and Lib Dem rebels last night to try to wreck flagship plans for an annual limit on welfare handouts.
Ministers reacted with fury as Church leaders suggested that capping benefits at a maximum of £26,000 a year was somehow un-Christian.
The bishops helped inflict a dramatic defeat in the House of Lords, with one even invoking the Bible as he argued against the Government’s plans.
To get the equivalent of £26,000 you would need to earn £35,000 a year thus the benfit cap is actually too high and does nothing to encourage work.
The welfare system in the UK rewards the feckless the more children they have the bigger free social house they get. We are already over populated in the UK but our welfare system rewards you for having a large family. I believe that social housing should be given to working people first, child benefits should be limited to just 2 children, the welfare cap should only be £18,000.
Too many immigrants from Africa have arrived in the UK and even though they are illegal they have managed to get National Insurance numbers. Some have been getting rents of over £100,000 a year paid by welfare. Back in Africa dis they live in a big mansion? They don’t they all sleep in one room plus they don’t get welfare in Africa. Our welfare system is what is encouraging economic migrants to the UK.
people like myself who have worked only get £80 a month towards my mortgage interest when I am unemployed yet an African in my block of flats gets his full rent paid which pays off the landlords mortgage in full.
Too many people I know in council housing never work and don’t intend to because they get their rents paid by the system. Those of us with mortgages and no kids are being taxed to pay for the freeloaders kids and the freloaders to live rent free.
Very very incorrect but what the BLOODY hell…………
It has been announced that the police are going to be allowed to use water cannons on rioters.
They are putting some Persil in to stop the coloureds running.
Muslims have crashed a speedboat into the Thames barrier in London .
Police think it might be the start of Ram-a-dam.
Following the riots in Tottenham, it’s important to remind ourselves that not all black people are stereotypical thieves and arsonists.
The vast majority are drug dealers and rapists.
Ngogo Mwambi has to travel 5 miles every day for fresh water, 7 miles
every day for food & 10 miles every day for medicine for him & his
family. This is because the daft bastard and all his mates torched the
Peckham Spar, Tottenham KFC and Hackney Medical Centre and now he has to
walk to Croydon for his breakfast.
Riots in Wythenshawe last month caused over £1 million worth of improvements
Muslims have gone on the rampage in Bradford , killing anyone who’s English.
Police fear the death toll could be as high as 5.
They’ve had to cancel the panto ‘Jack & the Beanstalk’ in Birmingham , Bristol , Oldham, Bradford, Burnley, Leicester, Luton and London :
Apparently the giant couldn’t smell any Englishmen.
Years ago it was suggested that, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
But since all the doctors are now Muslim, I’ve found that a bacon sandwich works a treat!
And my favourite… Sat opposite an Indian lady on the train today, she shut her eyes and stopped breathing.
I thought she was dead, until I saw the red spot on her forehead and realised she was just on stanby
I have just been cleaning dead links of my web page. I use an automated program called AM Dead link to find the dead links. Keep visiting my site. http://www.xymalf.co.uk for Music, MP3, DVD’s, competitions, photography, downloads and too much good stuff to mention.
We let alcoholics and drug users claim incapacity benefit, so they have more money to spend on drugs and alcohol. They should have to go to re-hab to get welfare.
We allow Squatters to break down peoples doors or smash windows and then claim squatters rights and see this only as a Civil matter.
We give loads of benefits to immigrants with large families including Working tax credits, child benefits, housing benefits. The welfare system encourages economic migration because immigrants get more on welfare here than they could earn back in Africa.
We can’t deport terrorists because of the ECHR act.
We allow freloaders to sit on the dole playing computer games all day. The DHSS never checks that people have applied for jobs they say they have done.
The system pays people full rents which pays off the rich landlords mortgage yet people with mortgages who become unemployed get very little compared to those in rented accomodation. Yet those with mortgages have worked and paid taxes which help build social housing.
Laws have been passed so that social housing must be built in rich private developments.
I personally believe child benefits should be limited to 2 children and social housing or housing benefit paid on houses of only 3 bedrooms maximum. People should not get their full rents paid by Housing benefit but should only get 90 percent – this will make them use some of their money from JSA to pay the other ten percent making work more attractive.
