Housing benefit to help those who work.

It is wrong that somebody who earn £24K a year in London still gets help towards their rent through Housing Benefit. People should be encouraged to live in properties where they can pay the full rent out of their wages. It is the taxpayers who are subsidizing them to live in expensive London boroughs. The reason for the housing shortage in London is because it was a magnet for all the illegal immigrants. If we sent the bogus asylum seekers and illegal immigrants back  they would be no shortage of affordable places to rent. Those of us with mortgages get no help in times of unemployment all we get is our mortgage interest paid putting us in debt or having to borrow money from family to pay the mortgage.


The scandal of large families in the UK.

Just today on the bus I overheard a converstion. A 22 year old young women who had 5 children expected the Council to house her and her brood in a 3 storey home. Her boyfriend lived in another flat probably so she could get maximum child and housing benefits. Why should we home people in bigger homes than they could ever get if they got a mortgage? These chavs don’t even have basic skills to do a manual job that would bring in the minimum wage.

All over the UK Housing benefit is suplimenting the rent on large families who have been moved into large homes bigger than they could get if they got a mortgage. A lot of these families are asylum seekers from Africa and other 3rd world countries who in reality where just economic migrants.

The reality is those people who work and pay a mortgage are supplimenting the rents of those who have been given these large homes often in too expensive areas.

Why taxpayers are not up in arms and writing to their M.P’s I don’t know.

No political party seems brave enough to cap Child benefits to 2 children, to stop the abuse of couples living apart to maximise benefits or cap the amount of housing benefit paid to £15K a year.

The perverse Housing benefit system in the UK.

Many Councils in the UK give free social housing to the unemployed these people often remain unemployed for several years getting their full rents paid by Housing Benefit. Money is simply being moved from one Council account to another with the Government paying so much towards Housing benefit.

Rich landlords can fill up their extra homes with the unemployed and get their mortgages paid off by the rent money they receive via Housing Benefit from the councils. Yet those people who work and have a mortgage only get their mortgage interest paid in times of need when made redundant.

Our Councils especially in London have also homes asylum seekers in very expensive homes knowing full well they are not able to get a job that would pay the rent.

The system seems to help the very rich and the freeloaders but not those who have worked and paid taxes. The reality is those who work and pay for a mortgage are also paying taxes for freeloaders to live off the state for free.

The unfair welfare system in the UK.

The welfare system in the UK is unfair as it treats those of us who have worked and paid taxes worse than freeloaders.

Freeloaders are given free council homes and get their rents paid by Housing benefit. This money does not come from nowhere the Government gives it to councils from money they get from the working tax payers – thus those who work and pay for a mortgage also subsidise free housing for council house freeloaders.

To make the situation worse most crimes like graffiti etc are done by those from council homes thus taxpayers have to pay more in council tax. Those not working in council housing get council tax for free.

In my opinion commiting a crime should exempt you from being able to get a council home. You can always get a place in a shared house or bedsit.

The welfare system at present rewards rich landlords who have unemployed tennents as they get their mortgages paid directly plus profit from the rent money local councils pay.

We need to encourage those who rent to seek work. The only way the syetem can do this is to reduce the amount of welfare it gives to those who rent. Those of us with mortgages only get our mortgage interest paid so why should those who rent get much more money than we do? Especially when many have never worked or paid taxes! I get 80 pounds per month mortgage interest piad and then have to pay my mortgage balance out of my JSA. Those who rent at the moment get to keep their full JSA. Those who rent are getting more than £170 a week for not working plus many of them do cash in the hand jobs.

I suggest JSA should be a maximum of £50 a week for those getting their rents paid.

Free housing for life

One of the biggest social problems in the UK is the fact that none working people are given free council housing and get their full rents paid by housing benefit. The welfare system was supposed to be a safety net not a way of life for free loaders. These freeloaders can get a bigger house than they ever could get by working just by having a large family. People who work and have a mortgage are taxed – some of this tax money is given by the Government to the councils to pay the freeloaders rents. So in effect those with mortgages are paying for their properties and being taxed so others can live for free. Those who pay council tax are also paying for the pensions of public sector workers, which are much more than private pensions. Also council tax pays for those who run the Unions. Some teachers only do six days work a year because the rest of their time is spent doing Union work.

Ironically those who work and pay taxes and have a mortgage get penalised when they lose their jobs as they only get their mortgage interest paid and are expected to pay the rest of the balance through JSA. So why should those in council housing who don’t work get their full rents paid?
