TORIES CALL FOR DEBATE ON WELFARE BUT LABOUR SAYS NO – There is a high percentage of the British population who would openly admit that the UK and its system of Government, particular in the realm of welfare, it broken, abused and in a state of total disarray which can be directly attributed to the division of the major political parties.
It certainly doesn’t help when you have a coalition government where both sides differ enormously and then throw into the mix the Labour Party who feels both the Tories and the Lib Dems have completely lost the plot.
It was of course the last Labour Government who created most of this mess along with the assistance and support of the Liberal Democrats. The formation of higher levels of government assistance for those who do not work coupled with an ‘open door’ immigration policy, which is back up by the Human Rights Act, was a disaster in the making and only now is Labour acknowledging the folly of its ways.
The Chancellor, George Osborne, announced plans for even greater changes to the welfare system and intends to make these changes on public sentiment over the Philpott murder case. However Labour has come out to admonish the Chancellor saying that his views and ideas are demeaning to his office and dangerous to the welfare of the poor in the UK.
The Chancellor made his comments on the day that Philpott, after being convicted of the manslaughter for six of his seventeen children by starting a house fire which he then tried to frame on his ex-lover so that he could get custody of their five children in order to benefit from the welfare payments, was seen as a disgraceful move by the Labour Party.
The Chancellor however was perfectly correct in laying bear the truth which was that Philpot ended up murdering six of his children simply to get his greedy hands on more state handouts. While it is accepted that not all of those on welfare are simply scroungers or would initiate such a heinous act it doesn’t alter the fact that this clearly indicates just how broken the welfare system has become and that how some will sink to the depths of depravity in order to milk the benefits system for all it is worth.
The debate is whether the ‘benefits system’ was at the heart of the events that Philpott undertook. It could be argued that Philpott implemented his vile plan in order to just get back his children and punish his lover for leaving him. However public opinion appears to be that Philpott murdered his children for the sole purpose of getting his hands on the welfare payments from the give children his lover took. The question the Chancellor and the public are asking is; “Is Philpott a product of the welfare system?”
While the Labour Party have admonished the Chancellor and feel that no such debate needs to take place is disturbing. Many are expressing their concerns that the Labour Party simply does not want to hear the truth – a truth that would squarely lay blame at their door considering it was the last Labour Government that opened up the welfare system to the high levels of abuse witnessed today.
Debate is one thing and honest views should be heard however politicians often have little concern for the truth but rather focus the energies on ridiculing the opposition for political gain and this is something that will not help cure the UK of its ailments. The diagnoses has already been given, we know the cause and type of cancer and what we need now is a debate, not on how the patient got infected, but how to cure the patient.
If we are ever going to put the ‘Great’ back into Great Britain we must put aside our petty squabbles and work on a solution. Most of it is pure common sense, something severely lacking in Government. If the Government is too frightened in offending opposition groups then the Government should, under a democratic system, initiate a referendum on a plethora of changes which would allow the people to determine the fate of the welfare system in order to reduce the abuse of it.
One of the biggest barriers to changing the welfare system and it is the same with immigration is the liberal brainwashing that has been in effect over the last 50 years. We are a society that wants to be viewed as a kind, giving and above all humane society and yet like any road paved with gold the intentions rarely provide riches.
I certainly do not advocate anarchy but there is little doubt, when you look at the state of the UK today, that our liberal ways have produced a society of scroungers, lay-about’s and criminals. You only have to look at the fact that the UK has the highest crime rate in Europe and to acknowledge openly that immigrants make up a large percentage of this crime, which is fueled by easy access to welfare, to see that welfare is no longer the tools that it once was to help the poor and needy but rather a system the fuels crime and a widening social division.
