I have just had one hell of a shock....aparently when my Garry claims for job seekers allowance he gets 75.00 a week....I too have to activly jobseek although I have not worked thru either being a carer or my own medical problems since I was about 35....I am now nearly 63.... :umhum: If I do not jobsearch that is all we get to live on... :|

I can I am told go to a doctor with my problems and get some other benefit.... Stumbling point,I am not registered with a doctor neither is Garry  lol

Filled out a pile of forms ,have to have examination  :O just I assume to check that I am alive? Then I might get to see a doctor ,thats if I can get to the doctor,due to undisclosed illnesses you wont want to know about  lol

So elderly woman, health problems, no qualifications, cant spell, bad attitude, needs job ..... lol lol lol

Brave new world".........

Oh Marty im so sorry to hear all that . I have known people who know exactly how to work the system ,they seem to live a good life ,I think dole office knows who they can badger and who they cant.


I cant actualy keep my balance most if the time ,I go arsehole over tit a lot . Hence I cant always drive. Other problems make me unreliable. Spose theres no fear of employment for me . But thats not the point,I am forced into claiming because we cant live without.


Many jobs here have been taken over by Russian gangmasters ,the poor buggers are crowded into small houses , paid a min wage then the gangmaster takes 50 quid off them so they can work the next week...I feel sorry for them,thier as much victims of mass immigration as we are. I blame the system not the people.


Still we normaly bounce back...

Immigration has kept wages low as they will work for minimum wage myself personally refuse to and have not done for years also made it harder for UK people who where actually born here to get a job I'll mention that reason next !!

A company a while back offered me a job but I had to prove I was eligible to work in the UK well that went down like a lead balloon with me.

I said go visit my grandads grave he fought in the war that's my right to work in my own county and if you want me to prove I'm entitled yet you can clearly see I'm brittish and from Norfolk you can't put on a Norfolk accent then I'm afraid you can keep your job and I'm not interested.

We have Polish shops popping up all over the place they sit outside drinking alcohol till early hours but I thought that required a licence oh I forgot they foreign so are exempt from any laws or rules in this county as they just play the "race" card.

This who country is becoming a joke with far to much political correctness it's like terrorists they let them in !!! Shut the gate and put them all on a boat and send them home simple there wasn't all this year's ago the county had a backbone then and would of evicted the crap from the country

I could go on but I'll only get branded a racist that's not the case they come here get our tax money handed out to them and nice homes yet we have our own people who have been on housing lists for years.

I have Muslims live opposite me not sure how many possibly 8 or 9 and one day I looked out the window and the road was full of people wearing bedsheets and cars everywhere it was some sort of gathering.

My daughter use to play with there kids which I did not have a problem with the only time I had a problem is when my daughter come home saying they tried to get her to pray so I went over there and told them my daughter is not going to be sitting on some rug with arse in air praying to something that does not exist in mine or her beliefs that was the end of her playing over there !!!

Sadly everyone has forgotten the saying When in Rome do as the Romans do....


I think we need imigrants with qualifications we need to fill,we dont need thousands of unqualified people on min wage. Thier as much victim as we are.


I am always interested in other cultures and people, and if they want to belive in a three headed donkey thats fine just dont expect me to.


In the old days the Polish people integrated well. So did many Germans, Indians , etc. Today it does not seem to happen which is sad.


I just heard my m8 has had her husband laid off from a company that supplied the one Garry worked for.


What I feel right now is bewildered ,I spose maybe ive left a sheltered middle class life and now I am seeing the nasty raw underbelly  of the real world.

Well Garrys daughter who was 7 when Garry was chucked out ,has never worked a day in her life. She has 3horses a car a nice council house and 4 children all with different fathers. Now thats fine and her choice,but not if the likes of the working public have to support her. It is not how her father bought her up .


I looked after my mum for years,never knew I could claim anything for it. Now I am told my pension will suffer because I never worked full time after she had a stroke when I was 28 .


I am now sorting out the council tax....400000 questions on my ethnicity, how long ive been in the UK ,all this ID shit, I have a paper driving licence and a passport that has my previous married name ,so we have to have marrage birth cert ...um...utility bills....


Ffs my Garry is a highly qualified experienced engineer he just wants a job...

Plenty of people round this way like that.

I'm depressed keep having tax taken of me to support those kind of people they should make them get out in the community and weed gardens and sweep streets for them to get there benefits.

 You should not be able to get nothing for nothing unless it's for a good reason and the reason he is depressed is the dope that is what I class as a "self inflicted" illness and if I was in power they would get absolutely nothing unless they earnt it.

Admittedly there are people who are genuinely depressed but it's like most things nowerdays is a very easy cop out for those who simply cannot be arsed.

The country physically cannot carry on financially supporting those kind of people who are clearly pulling a fast one as well as immigrants ect it's all well the big fat cats in government saying X amount for this and that will be given but it's us the working class paying for all there kind offers.

If the UK and US had not just wanted the oil and left people like saddam ect alone those countries would of been kept it check yes saddam killed people ect but there way of living is totally different to ours and the way they do things.

I hate to think what it will be like for my kids...kids the brittish person would of been faded out and everyone wearing burkas.

It's like Brexit what a load of crap the people voted in a so called democratic vote now politicians are objecting but guess what all the time them prats argue like a bunch of school kids in the house of commons as that's what it reminds me of when I've seen it and those people run this country no wonder things like they are.

But back to brexit while they doing the above the good old brittish people are once again being shafted for example Red sea salt gone up £10 a bucket due to it even if exchange rate goes back to what it was pre brexit companies like that won't drop the price they will just continue to coin it in....

Also when the ever so nice government dropped vat to 15% from 17.5% to help everyone like no one see they would not want that back haha and hiked it upto 20% and there it has stayed brittish people ripped of once again. VAT was a tax added to help pay back a loan to the USA from the war and the loan was fully paid back with its last payment in 2007 so why are we still paying VAT I'll tell you why because the brittish people allow themselves to be shafted.

They not content with taxing you when you alive they will also tax you on money and property that you have already paid tax on I don't know how many times after your death.

Only thing I can promise everyone in life is you will be taxed and you will die.


Rant over its a sore point with me if only I could be priminister for a year !!!! Would also mean getting a £150000 a year pension then but that's another sore point haha

Ah the only things you can be sure of...Death and Taxes lol


Garrys family had to sell thier farm due to death dutys. You pay inheritance tax capital gains tax ...Gordon Brown wanted a patio tax was it? Plus that same government made no loan unsecured,they can grab yer house for a 1k credit card bill...and thats the workers party?


What I would like to do to Jeremy Corbin I cant say in public, hes removed the choice for the protest vote ,the Liberals are all out thier tree...UKip all seem a bit strange.


I would say our problems are due to those who manage actualy couldnt manage a piss up in a brewery. The management where Garry worked were inept this is why the Bank moved in ,the knock on is that another company has gone to the wall,insert name here crop sprayers has ruined more than its own wellbeing . This culture seems to reward you for being an inefficient twat...dont worry tho daddy went to the right school....

It make me sick I,ve grafted on the building sites all my working life pretty much I have crushed vertebrae in my lower back and my back kills as soon as I have been sat down for half an hour and get up again .  I do groundwork mostly now and it's back breaking but i,ve got kids to support .  There's  so many workshy people who should just have there money cut but they know how to get round things then there's people like yourself who are made to feel guilty .  The system is one big pisstake

Pretend you an alcoholic or a drug addict they will also put you on ESA AKA incapacity benefit which then means you get even more money but in your case you won't be spending it on extra drink and drugs like they would.

It's crazy isn't it they give those people more money then someone with out an addiction yet those with the addiction are just going to spend every extra £ getting of there nut which is why they on the benefit in the first place haha simple stop there benefits and cold turkey you will give up drink and drugs you want them you go get a job and earn the money for them why should people's tax be used for that it's a joke


These type of threads always make me tick haha
