Housing Benefit: Example # 2
In yesterday’s post I gave an example of how difficult it can be to claim Housing Benefit and how this can cause problems with managing one’s cash flow.
Today, let’s look at it from the other end.
Please note: this is not about me. It is an EXAMPLE.
Do you not think that working makes you a valuable member of society, opposed to someone who is out to take what they can from those who work hard? Working for a living should make you value the things that you have, because you have earned them. At the moment, everything you own has been paid for by me and other hard working people of your community. <br />We didnt ask or force you to have a
To be fair I meant to reply to your other blog post in which you seem to be complaining about the amount of money you receive from the government.<br />I'm sorry, but your post makes it quite clear that you are in receipt of benefits. Whether or not your working 1 or 2 days a week is irrelevant. You are still in receipt of free money, cheaper rent, cheaper council tax, free school meals for
I'm sorry you feel the need to judge other people; perhaps your life is not as fulfilling as it could be. I have no need to justify myself or my actions to some anonymous troll on my blog. Reading 2 or 3 of my posts does not make you an expert on my position; I hope you pay closer attention to your own.
Wow! Anonymous person, I'm really quite astounded at your ability to judge and your inability to read properly! If you were to take the time to read this blog from the beginning, you would find a hard working, brave and clever woman who has overcome obstacles that some couldn't even comprehend. I'm not a benefits claimant, and I do have issues with elements of the benefits system, but
Oh dear. <br />You seem to be mistaking judging for having an opinion. I'm not judging you personally, I don't even know you! I'm just expressing my displeasure at a post which seems to promote being on benefits as a lifestyle choice. <br />Some people NEED to claim benefits to make ends meet, these are the same people that have to do without the very luxuries I mentioned previously.<
How DARE you come to my blog and imply that I STOLE some yoga mat! If you bothered to read more than just the first paragraph of any of my posts you would know that the products you so resent my having were all given to me to review on the blog.<br /><br />Don't come here talking to me about personal sacrifices or how I shouldn't be blogging, or how being online is a waste of time. Go
Whoa! I think someone needs a saucer of milk! Judging someone when you can't be bothered to read it properly and then hiding behind a computer to put your views across! People like you make me smile inside as I know I will never be sad enough to slate other peoples opinions and views. If you don't like it, don't read it. Suzi Senior.
Anonymous, you have assumed that she became pregnant because she wanted too.. Have you not factored in that she might have been raped or something awful like that, and kept the baby because of her morals or on religious grounds. There are many factors for people becoming single parents, such as abusive partners and even death of a partner, so before jumping to conclusions perhaps one needs to be
Hi Anonymous, you seem to be very quick to judge. I worked with this single mum for a number of years when she was a full tax paying member of society. Just because she needs a hand up, not a handout, you feel the need to pigeon hole her along with everyone else on benefits. Each case to be judged on its' own merits I say... it doesn't take much for life to change so dramatically and we
