Note to self: must make a conscious effort not to offend the scrounging classes.
Whilst I'm pretty far from being a left wing socialist myself, I don't think it's possible for anyone to be more right wing than yourself! Though I suspect you're just being rather tongue in cheek.
Having signed on recently myself, I could spend quite some time pointing out some of the ridiculous loopholes that it's all too easy for the lazy and workshy to work their way around (for instance, you are under no pressure to accept a job that paid less than your last one even should you be offered it, well not for months at least), which many people quite probably do! But as Falkirk Mark says, there's a significant difference between some of us recently been made redundant and the terminally unemployed.
Despite my right of centre political views, I do believe in some form of welfare state, though I do believe the one we have currently is ridiculously compromised, corrupted and open to manipulation by those that choose to do so.
