Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I really don't get that bit of it, the sensible plan is to completely do away with signing on, remove the whole infrastructure for it and the accompanying bureaucratic balls and invest a portion of the money saved (which would be considerable to say the least) in enforcement/fraud detection.

    This is playing to the Daily Heil readers in gallery and feck all else "we made the scroungers go out of the house twice as often, hee-hee!!" while failing to mention that it costs more money. *shrug*

    Apart from that it's plus ça change...
     
  2. Why not just have concentration camps instead.
     
  3. <---- NAAFI's that way.

  4. 0.7% of total benefits taken are through fraud
     
  5. Funny you should mention that...

  6. Isn't it
     
  7. So lets cut 99.3 % of benefits and see who complains first.
     
  8. Does that include ALL benefits?
     
  9. I don't disagree with you. The cost of administrative errors within the benefit system is higher than that of fraud.

    One however is an error, the other is a crime. Ending the signing on system and providing a greater budget for enforcement from the resulting saving would reduce both costs. But plays to no political "house", so it won't happen.
     
  10. Just looking at the show now. If you ever needed proof that there's an entire strata of our society who will never work... Just watch this show.

    Doesn't matter what you spend on them, what you give them, how you incentivise them. There is nobody on the face of the earth that would employ some of the creatures on there to as much as shovel shit.

  11. Umm, where is this from? If it is so accurate why don't they just stop the 0.7%?
     
  12. I don't get the logic.

    Make everyone who is unemployed sign on twice as often. That means that there will be twice as many people in the signing on office than previously. So are they going to have to employ twice as many signing on desk people? Where will the money come from?

  13. The money that they saved from the jiggling of some other aspect of the welfare system. The welfare budget never really changes it just goes in different pigeon holes.

    The shame of it all is we could actually reduce the unemployment levels significantly, but there's no desire to do it.
     

  14. The army is....
