you know what, this government has succeeded in making life hell for thous who claim. the ignorant, the stupid, the uninformed, the SHEEP who swallow all the crude this government spit's out about people who claim ANY type of benefit. try researching, try NOT believing everything you here in the press and TV. it's called propaganda for a reason. there are NOT a high number who claim falsely. there are not enough jobs to go around (especially in rural areas) I am SICK to the back teeth of being looked down on and being judged for something I was born with and have no control over. I tell you what you want to fix it, go ahead, be my guest. STOP BEING JUDGE, JURY AND EXACUISHNER. STOP telling people your not looking hard enough, your scum, your attitude sucks, your just being pathetic, your problems are your own fault. bleah,bleah,bleah. So your one of the lucky ones, congrats it doesn't mean you know anything about what it's like to be on JSA, ESA, any other type of benefit. you have no idea what it feels like to live in fear of the brown envelope, to panic because you know if you dont jump thru the hoops you will be left alone, hungry, with no electricity and possibly homeless. My brother has been sancened for being late to three appoints the last six months, each time he has had to get written proof fromt he bus companies to state that it wasn't his fault, the bus had broken down (we live in the country, it happens ALLOT) he make it a point to go in an hour early. he's still been sanscend thou because he was late, he phoned in, explained, IT DIDN'T MATTER TO THEM. I myself have to jump hoops, I have to prove yearly that my Epilepsy and other issue haven't suddenly gone away. my problems are long term. I'm in Uni, i'm doing a degree in the hoops that I'll be able to work from home by contracting out to different companies. I have a plan, yet this government is doing it's **** best to screw me over. stop being ignorant and go find some actual facts, not the crude the government and newspapers and TV stations spit out because most if it utter crude! I'm sorry for ranting, I'm not sorry for the content. I was spat on the other day because of these attitudes and I have had it. enough is enough.
