Scroungers

Started by: Billinge Biker (2490) 

Totally fed up of so called "Desperate" people crying poverty saying their benefits don't cover their food bills etc etc.
1. What goals did you achieve in your lifetime - None.
2. Relied on council housing instead of pulling your finger out and getting on the property ladder
3. Being a 3rd or 4th generation scrounger and leech in our society.
4. If you commit crime ..don't cry about it when you get jailed.
5. If you 'Chose" drugs ..tough...you are a burden on our NHS .
6. If you scrounge outside shops you should be arrested for vagrancy.
7. Hope Starmer follows his manifesto...if you are offered jobs and don't take them...No Benefit money.
8. How do they all have top of the range clothes/mobile phones.
9. We don't need no extra leech's coming in their boats..we have enough here.
10. I won't see the ignored replies .so don't bother.

Mr Biker:

I agree with your Items 3 to 9. Item 1 and 2 depend on education and social environment.

1. Not everyone has the same intellect to achieve goals that can be achieved by others

2. Not everyone has the opportunity to save enough money to buy their own homes in the first instance.

However, if they choose to have half a dozen kids without the benefit of being able to pay for them, and rely on the taxpayer, then I would add that to your list.

Stardelta:

Pack it in. There's a good lad. It's getting tedious.

I agree that a benefit should not be a way of living as it seems many claim as a birthright, It should be earned and if a person has never paid in, they should not be entitled to anything, These ' newcomers who, arrive by sneaking in or canoeing across the channel' should be made to earn their keep by, cleaning up the streets or filling pot holes,

Back to my post regarding Labour saying pensions should be means tested, I really think that pensioners who take state pension, plus private pension, yet still take employment in Asda, Aldi, B&Q etc.. Now, that is wrong. Kind of. But it’s their choice. I mean, they have the right to do as they please. But they shouldn’t have both.

I have to disagree there tonks, some are working cos they are bored and some are woking to make ends meet, a single person even with a private pension can keep fed and watered but, the luxuries like, car ownership and holidays, the pension won't fund that, even on a plumbers life,,

"2. Relied on council housing instead of pulling your finger out and getting on the property ladder"

There are a few people on here whom were brought up in council houses.
Nothing wrong with that whatsoever. In fact I find that a very derogatory remark which you stated. I'm assuming you did not think what you were typing before you came out with remark?
Are you suggesting their hardworking parents didn't" pull their fingers out?"

Do you consider those who live in council housing somehow inferior or below you?

I can enlighten you on that one Tonker, Scousers are called ' whackers' because its a term they used during , Times of hardship and . If a scouser found, something that fawd off a wagon, he would 'whack' it with his close mates, meaning to share it, I've been informed Whups would't whack anything, I heard he can peel an orange in his pocket so, Whups is no whacker but he is a scouser

Interesting to read bikers views on scroungers, especially his dig at council house dwellers some of whom he reckons didn't get there finger out and get on the property ladder, well the thing is a hell of a lot of them did with Thatchers right to buy there council house scheme ( houses which were never replaced ) And then what happened? She took away there livelihood by decimating mining, steel, and other industries and they ended up having there homes repossessed most of which fell into the hands of private landlords at bargain prices who then made loads of money by renting them out. And answer me this one biker seeing as you have a downer on scroungers, which do you think costs the country more? Is it people who can work but won't work? Or add all these together. Tax evaders and avoiders. Bankers and financial sector bonuses when banks have been bailed out more than once using taxpayers money! The Tories handing out God knows how much to there pals in useless and overpriced contracts. Those who nip into the house of lords for a quick snooze and get paid well over 300 quid a day plus subsidised food and drink, MPs claiming mountains of cash in expenses and again getting subsidised food and drink. Energy and other utility and service companies, which should never have been privatised in the first place! Making obscene profits which are dished out in massive wages to CEOs and the like, plus dividends to shareholders but yet still putting up prices. I could go on but i don't want you to have to do to much adding up.

I wonder how many of the people who are now retired, or are ready to retire, those in their 60s, 70s, 80s plus who were part of Thatcher's working generation, they were already working when Thatcher came to power in 1979, how many of those took up Thatcher's 'right-to-buy' and bought their council houses, how many of those actually now regret buying their council homes ?

Well of course anyone who has lost their job and then goes on to lose their houses, that is a tragedy, and in places where the nationalised industries were either the main employer or the only employer, such has the mining towns in places like Yorkshire, where when the mines closed, there was literally nothing there to replace them job wise, that was terrible.

But my question is relating to how does owning your former council home, relate to not buying it, and to have continued through the years to rent that home from the council, and so owner or renter of that council property, when you retire what state of repair is the property in, has the property been modernised over the years, and I am speaking in general, I know some people will have done well out of it, and some people won't have done so well out of it.

Maggie didn't do me any harm whatsoever...I don't know the figures but I strongly suspect the Benefits bill in total costs more than the noses in the Trough brigade. You can only guess at the figure of tax evasion as nobody knows in reality. Those who cheated on expenses claims have been sorted and new rules in place. One of the footmen in the lord's is employed to dig the old jossers in the ribs to wake them up...That needs looking into as well....Oh look...another 450 scroungers landed on our shores in 6 boats yesterday. What's Starmers answer...kill off the Rwanda bill which has cost many millions so far. Perhaps you do gooders could house some of these immigrants...in the great British spirit of the day....Marvellous .

Whups, I thought you were born and bred in Ashton in Makerfield, the section of which has been in Merseyside for over 50 years and has never, ever, been in Wigan. That means you've spent over 50 years, in fact most of your life, living in Merseyside.
It follows that you are a 'naturalised' Scouser.

From :- 'The Scousish Naturalisation Act' (Gov.co.uk)

You can apply to naturalise as a Scousish citizen if you .....


• Are aged 18 or over when you apply
• Are of sound mind, so that you understand the step you are taking
• Have lived in Merseyside for a minimum of 5 years before you apply
• Must have been physically present in a Merseyside Borough on the day 5 years before the application is received by the Home
Office
• Must not have been in breach of the Scouser Naturalisation laws in the 5-year period before
making your application. We may assume you meet this requirement without
making further enquiries if you have been granted indefinite leave to enter or
remain in Merseyside, in any of it's Boroughs

Now then, compare this factual information ......

I spent just over 9 years of my life living in Merseyside. I then moved to Wigan Borough, in Greater Manchester, where I live now 40 years later.

You, on the other hand, have lived in Merseyside for over 50 years and have never lived in Wigan, Wigan Borough or Greater Manchester.

Work that one out!

Well here are some figures for you. The total estimated welfare bill for 2024 is 1.34 billion, now bare in mind that not all of that will be paid to who you class as scroungers, a lot of it will be to genuine claimants such as the disabled, those who are actually in employment and getting universal credit, and those who are genuinely seeing work. The estimated cost of tax avoidance is 1.8 billion, the cost of tax evasion can't be estimated but it will be quite a few quid. Add on to that lot the money paid to the Lords, MPs expenses, bankers bonuses, obscene salaries paid to CEOs, etc, etc, and tell me which costs more?

I found some of the comments interesting ,some not , On the issue of the "boats" again my view's are that Irrespective what colour is on number 10 be it ,RED,BLUE,YELLO, GREEN' ETC NOT ONE OF THEM HAS GOT THE BALLS TO MAKE THE DECSION TO TURN THEM AROUND AND DROP THEM OF IN THE """SAFE "" COUNTRY THEY CAME FORM !!!!!!!! Bar one person who has cited that should he have been made P.M. he would have carried out such,and it's th eone and only NIGEL FARAGE ,like him or hate he does what he says
On the issue of council housing ,i just wish to add one thing and he should well know that after this country came out of W.W. 2 there was barely any house's and also the state of what were had were decrepit ie the Labour Gov massive council house build which i believe was a great success ,which should be replicated today .

Your figures are a tad adrift, the welfare bill this year is £ 157.8 billion.
The bank bailout was mainly in the form of guarantees to prevent a run on the banks.
The net amount, mainly down to NatWest, still owing is around £30 billion. The banking sector annual contribution to the exchequer in taxes is currently £41 billion.
