Universal Credit and Jobseeker’s Allowance .

That’s what a lot of people are on .

And not everybody has an endless supply of socks and underpants.

Will queuing up outside the Barbers be ok ?

Mid- March I was due to go ski-ing in France with four mates but due to the house move I cancelled. They just got the trip in in time as the Frogs shut everything down two days after they got back.

Found out yesterday that all four tested positive for coronavirus. All had the same symptoms, sore throat and a fever for about three days. Also feeling really tired.

So nothing life-threatening, but it looks like I dodged a bullet nonetheless.
Make me an offer.

I don't blame anybody for ripping off the system tbh. But I do blame the silly fucking politicians, both sides of the house, who over the years have presided over a system which is so open to abuse that, guess what, people abuse it. And what do they do about it ?

Fuck all is what. My eldest boy recently had a bit of work done on his house and was encouraged to pay the blokes in cash, for which he received a reduced price for the job. Obviously he took advantage, so he's part of the conspiracy just like any of us would have been. My 14 year old grandson suggested during a conversation that if we did away with cash that situation couldn't happen. I'm not sure it couldn't happen but it would sure as hell make it more difficult to get away with. Let's face it we don't need cash any more do we ? Since I started paying my bar bills with plastic (the last bastion of the cash transaction) the only time I use cash now is when I bung the grandkids a few quid when I see them.

And is what my boy did, and what I've certainly done in the past, which is effectively stiffing the system, any worse than the bloke who claims jobseekers allowance whilst working as a driver for Uber or doing a bit of cash in hand car delivery work ?

And everyone knows this,which is why the benefits are actually quite low in comparison to other economies. It's like shop lifting,it happens,they would like to deter it but we all pay slightly more with each purchase which covers the retail loss.

And the example of somebody gaming the system for a couple of hundred quid is insignificant. Compare that to blokes who earn 30K for three months work,declare 5K for tax and pocket the 25K.

I'm always quite amazed how much people pay in cash for stuff...and we know why they do it.

So the average thicko pays for everything and gets fucked by the system and the people with an edukation like,skate through life enjoying all life's available benefits during their journey. That doesn't necessarily mean they have a happy existence.That comes from something else.

But you won't find the bloke who pays 5K tax and pockets 25K on a BLM march...unless he sold tickets
