social warefare is a great thing if it is not abused.

i was unemployed for a while due to circumstances beyond my control, had nowhere to stay etc (well i could have stayed with friends, family). The government payed me unemployment cash until i found my feet again, and they also put me up in a b&b untill i found a flat.

Having worked since the age of 16, and payed tax the entire time. i'm sure i did not use a fraction of what i've payed into the system. But the fact remains when i needed it my government stepped in  Cool

i am now working again and paying tax, and i may never need this help again, but its good to know its there should i ever need it, for me and many others in my circumstances. i.e. people who want to work and are not happy taking handouts.

there are however people who have never worked a day in their life here who take every handout going, and will never pay back into the system. They simply do not want to work. Lots of them also like to abuse their bodies with drug or alcohol which further drains the system with the free health care they require. This is where the system falls apart  Angry

However i think there is a simple solution to this problem - national service.

Should someone be unable or unwilling to find work, they can work for their government.

you have to deal with families that can trace their roots back 20000000000000 years to within a square mile of where they live.


& You can trace your roots back 200 years can you? 

And wow, you are one of the 1 in 10000000 Americans who has bothered to apply for a passport to travel and are now able to criticise the rest of the world?

The English language and my politeness and culture don't allow me strong enough adjectives to describe your ignorance

Someone ought explain to you our National Health and Social Welfare systems which were put in place after WWII.  They nearly worked.

Oh and has anyone ever explained to you the Commonwealth?  Don't you remember Australia Africa America India etc?  It's payback time and Britain must take all comers.

Really little tiny island here

No worries, it's funny.  

Perfectly understandable.
Everyone on the planet wants and needs to learn to speak English don't they?


Ergo, everyone wants to come to England.  & London is the centre of the universe.  It's wonderful.

xL
(I live in zone 1, very central, near Paddington, halfway between Queen's Park and Westbourne Park, kinda Made of Ale/Not in Hell.

So maybe I'm now upper middle class & biased...

I've been here in this same flat for 17 years.  Travelled all over the world   ...I went to a party here south of the river once, in Brixton, it was fantastic.  When I lived in NYC for a year I went to both Brooklyn and the Bronx.  So far I'm safe.  Feel somewhat sorry for some kids nowadays though.

But it's okay, it's nice and I'm nice.  It's easy to be nice.  
More often than not, most people are nice back.
Do have a pleasant and peaceful Sunday (Spring Equinox) evening and be sure to take care.

Anyways, I'm nowhere near through even half my life.  & I wanna spend 6 months a year in India

They are truly lovely to Brits in India.  Whereas Americans are so extremely rude wherever and whenever.

Sad thing is that if I leave Britain, there'll be room here for another weirdo.
