Just been watching local news (Look North) which is running a series this week on how benefit cuts are affecting local claimants. This morning it was an unemployed couple whining that they won't be able to manage when the £500.00 per week cap comes into effect. Three children and a fourth on the way, huge expensive fishtank in the background as they were interviewing the husband. "Trying to give a f**k meter" was struggling to move away from zero. Total taken from the benefit pot on a yearly basis £22K. Amount of contributions paid into the central pot, is I suspect, Zero. Why have a fourth child they can clearly not afford? Boils my piss when TV companies interview these wasters. When they find people on benefits who are really starving or unable to manage and who don't smoke and don't have 40" plasma TV's maybe I'll be more sympathetic.
