In answer to someones suggestion i'm ranting on benefit abuse

The one thing that has punched my prize winning donkey today is benefit abuse! Now for the record people who claim benefits for genuine reasons, I’m all for that and I do not mind paying my taxes to make sure their way of life is better than it would be without them, but it’s the people that are too lazy to get off their over-sized, elasticated jean wearing arses to get a job and would rather scrounge off the tax-payer and then have the cheek to complain they don’t get enough money or gold-plated toothbrushes I have a problem with!

I remember seeing a programme about a family who just lived off benefits. Why you may ask? Well I will tell you why, they make £70,000 a year from benefits and they don’t want or need to work! UNBELEIVABLE! Benefits should be for people who want to work, but need some extra help or that can’t work due to a valid reason surely not because they just want to keep up to date with the latest kappa shell suits in JJB sports! She admitted that she wanted to have more kids purely to get more benefits from the government! They live in a big house with……wait for it…….a lovely new LCD TV and what do BOTH of the parents do for a living…….NOTHING! The whole family is supported by you and me, the tax-payers (unless there’s any students reading this and if you are HURRY UP AND GET A JOB), rather than supporting themselves. If that’s not bad enough they were actually complaining that they don’t get enough ‘to support their family’! GET A JOB THEN! What debt do we owe to them! NOTHING! They’re leaches on an already strained society! How can millions of families across the UK survive, by doing an honest days work, getting a wage, paying their way when people like that who know they can get away with it sit their in their newly paid leather sofa from DFS with massaging options and built in fridge and just moan! This fuels my opinion to have to get a license to have children! You have to get one to drive, have a dog, fish, so why don’t you need one for the most important impact you can have on the world! There should be a questionnaire like, question 1: do you say baby (pronounced bab then an e)? If so, one point against. Question 2: have you ever called in to a helpline on ‘This Morning’ to get advise on your life? If so, again another point against. Question 3: when having a child would you consider the name Crystal as not only it’s an expensive gem it’s also a champagne? Sorry another point against! Just suggested questions, I’m sure there’s more. Like do you own his and hers tracksuits? Whoops another point against!

Another thing, how are people that are on benefits so fat?! Benefits should provide just enough food to survive to make people get a job, unless they are genuine and cannot work for a valid reason. If they’re lazy, and you can tell, then don’t give them so much. Also, not only are they fat, but they wear leggings! Do they look in the mirror with their greasy hair tied back, superdrug make-up on, lambert and butler fag hanging out of their mouth, velour tracksuit top and LEGGINGS on and think oh yes, yes this is how I want the world to see me! What happens in these peoples heads? I’ll tell you what, nothing! If you looked inside their heads you’d see a cartoon bloodhound lying against a tree, playing a banjo and the soundtrack to rhubarb and custard!

What’s worse is that they don’t have any shame in dragging their gigantic derrières out to collect benefits, then round topshop etc, then to the newsagent to buy lambert and butlers, then to asda to buy anything with fat in to then go home, create a bonfire in the back garden with some tyres and petrol siphoned out of a neighbours car to cook some half price sausages on and invite all their pikey friends round while polluting the atmosphere!

So to conclude today’s blog, to all the people that claim benefits legitimately I support you and sleep happier knowing that you’re having a better life than you would have without this financial help. To the rest you deserve to earn your money by maybe being put on some sort of entertaining chav game show. Running Man springs in to mind if not maybe one of those painful Japanese shows were they get scorpions down their pants or get encased in a block of ice for a week and if you survive you win a stapler!

I hope you enjoyed my third instalment. Thank you to everyone who has commented or emailed me with your support and great ideas on rants. I’m going to aim to get through every suggestion you want me to talk about. Again thank you and I’ll have a new one tomorrow. GOOD BYE!!!!

The best way to get your own back on the benefits culture is make a claim every few years. Chuck in your job or get sacked then start claiming. Make sure any savings are hidden and not declared then claim the maximum for a few months until they start hounding you. That way, your lifestyle is compromised and you get your share back before it goes to some lazy, idle, scrounging non-deserved failure who cannot even keep a job! MC

Hey babes!
I have said that people should apply for a licence to be able to have a baby like the process for adoption. Good blog/rant though

i guess you have never been on benefits, well i have, and it's hard if you want a job and got benefits a jobs are hard to find with enough money to surport yourself, i dont have children, but it's still hard! maybe you should try it.

In reply to the last comment, no i haven't been on benefits. I don't need or want to try it. If you're on benefits, like i said in my post, if you have a valid reason for it i'm happy it's only people who abuse the system and take benefits when they make enough money and i'm sure you're not one of the peoplewho abuse the system

oh Lord - I have just watched a TV programme that goes one better. Not only was this chap and his wife on benefits but they had 18, yes that's right, 18 children. Admittedley they weren't all from their marriage. Some of them were from his relationship with his mistress. And this guy was complaining because he wanted a bigger council house to put them all in - His wife, his mistress and their 18 kids all living happily ever after at our expense.

I'd love to hear your comments on men and the snip!
