Until the government makes it more profitable to work both socially and economically , then you will always have people who abuse the benefits system , a Horizon programme last week advised that for some people on benefits the average weekly wage would have to equal Â£300.00 per week to make it worth while them coming off benefits. Labour have created a benefit culture, because thats where most of there votes lie. I agree with national service for ages 18-21, 3 years is nothing. learn some life skills, a bit of respect etc. Also there should be more stringent medical checks as Inacapicty benefit is one of the most abused of all, " I've got depression, bollocks.... you're just a lazy twat". There should be no benefit at all for the first four years fo rpeople leaving school who are fit and able, apprenticeships, training schemes, acccess courses etc should be brought back and a grant or wages for doing these, if you don't want to do that , then tough tit, no money for you son. If you cant meet the level of education then more remedial training until you can. We are far too soft in the UK.
