WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO STATE BENEFITS? – The BBC is being lambasted with criticism after John Humphrys, a highly respected journalist, produced a condemning documentary on the crisis Britain’s welfare state is in due to what is now referred to as an ‘entitlement’ culture.
Full Story… Daily Mail
If I have learned one thing in my life that’s worth noting is that the British public want the truth. Unfortunately for some the truth is not actually what they want, or should I rather note that they want it sugar coated.
The truth is often hard to bear, it’s unpleasant and most often presents our failings in gory detail. Yes, we want it but there again we don’t want to hear it.
The welfare system was originally designed with the intent of assisting people in times of need. The idea was to provide much needed support to the poor but with the agenda of helping them to move forward; not creating a lifestyle choice as it is today.
As John Humphrys clearly points out; we now live in the ‘entitlement’ era where every scrounger and lay-about is simply looking for a free ride through life off the back of the hard working taxpayer.
There are some; as I have often reported on, that have huge families and all are being supported by the taxpayer.
We often hear about ‘social justice’ in the context of helping the poor through social welfare and yet who helps the working families?
Yes they too get benefits in the form of tax credits and child support but who can deny them their slice of the cake; after all it is these people who are paying into the social welfare pot.
With the onslaught of the Liberal Left-Wing ideology that we all live in some type of Utopian society where everyone chips in to help the poor is it little wonder why nearly 4 million residents in Britain feel an entitlement to welfare.
The underlying issue is that we’ve also created a society that is ‘politically correct’ and therefore the truth is not only sugar coated its all icing and no sponge; in fact many liberals find it utterly offensive to consider the notion of sponge with icing.
Why should I, as a hard working taxpayer, support the likes of Heather Frost and her burgeoning brood? I wasn’t the one that spent most of my life on my back with my legs in the air producing one child after another like some type of breeding farm.
What, you think that’s rude or uncalled for? Well I can tell you this it is certainly not politically correct; but there again I’m not a Liberal Left-Wing wet that lives in La La Land. I live in the real world and it’s expensive because I have to support scrounger’s, lay-about’s and low-lifes like Heather Frost.
Yes, it’s the truth and I’m sure that there are many of you will think I’m quite vile but it’s likely that you don’t want the truth, you don’t want to hear that the welfare system is in deep crisis and you certainly don’t want to acknowledge that the taxpayer is being raped just to keep those inept and lazy scroungers in drink and cigarettes.
As for the BBC giving John Humphrys a dressing down; well that borders on insanity. Here is an arcane institution that feeds off the blood of the taxpayer for the financial gain for a few greedy public schoolboys running the show.
This is an organization that has covered up child sex abuse and has been caught awarding its executives massive payouts against internal policy. Of course the BBC is not in the business of telling the truth but more into hiding it under every available rug.
The real issue and truth here, as John Humphreys points out, is that we have created a system of entitlement, the sense that the state owes us a living and that welfare for many, has become not a helping hand but a way of life.
It may not be politically correct to say these things but that’s just a way of attempting to hide the failings.
Note the fevour in which the Liberal Democrats have engaged in over the recent set of welfare reforms and it is clear that their delusional mindset is that everyone should be given hand outs, regardless to the cost.
You might be wondering why all this has come about. Well it was all down to one unnamed spokesman from an unnamed charity for the poor making a complaint to the BBC. Yes, that’s right whoever it was didn’t even have the spine to come forward and argue the case for welfare; that’s probably because the liberal wet doesn’t have an argument or case to give.
Should we care about the poor and unfortunate? Yes, without question, but who can deny the abuse to the welfare system. Again welfare was designed to help in times of ‘real’ need but we’ve turned it into an entitlement and a lifestyle and if anyone can’t see the wrong in that then they will never understand the virtues of a fair and just system.
We really do need to look up and acknowledge just how bad the system is for the prosperity of Britain. We need to get people back to work and if that is forced by removing benefits then so be it.
People need to understand that they are not entitled to benefits and that any received is by the grace and favour of the hard working taxpayer and is merely designed as a temporary measure until a person is able to get back on their feet and get back to work.
Lambaste me if you like but I can assure you that if we continue to allow people to view the welfare state as an entitlement or worse a lifestyle then Britain as a just and prosperous nation is doomed.
