Pro-cuts rally in London
Well, I’m pretty sure my opinion on singletrack is going to be required to stand up in court, but your point is taken.
I would edit my post to say “imo” but it’s too late now. Either way, I’m inclined to think that some of the people who I’ve discussed this with are telling the truth. Either that or I have to accept that all of them were lieing, and I struggle with that.
I’m not moving any goal posts, my point remains. I believe that too many people are claiming/given benefits when they’re not needed. We need to address this with cuts. Please point out where I deviated from this stance.
it is no longer about your neighbour but all claimants now – as you dont get subtle do you
I’m very capable of “getting” subtle. I don’t get “missing the point entirely”. My original post was not about all claimants, and neither were my later ones. They were all about people that don’t need to claim, but do because it’s available and they can. My neighbours was an example. They chose not to work and to claim because they can. I used them as an example. Perhaps that was too subtle for you?Posted 6 years agoJunkyardMember

it is one of those things everyone knows someone who knows someone who is cheating benefits. i am not saying they are all lairs it is just part of our folk mytholgy/urban legends.
the rest is my error you cited them as an example – i have just re read it 😳
re benefits v tax avoidance
Tax evasion is around 3% of total tax liabilities, while benefit fraud accounts for 0.8% of total benefit expenditure.

avoidance will be higher I assume but legal.tree-magnetMember
I totally agree with you. 100%
However, the thread was about cuts. Not Tax avoidance. I’d agree with you on tax avoidance as well, but that would be a different thread.
Getting back on topic, £1 billion is still a lot of money to be wasting. And that’s just the fraud. What about those that claim that don’t need to? IMO (and it is just that) we pay more money out than we need to.Posted 6 years ago
So long as we stop spending the cost of a new aircraft carrier on a new NHS or HMRC computer system that’s redesigned within three months then it’s fine by me.
The biggest problem we have is the ever escalating cost of living, neither the Tories nor Labour seem willing to confront this particular issue.Posted 6 years ago

Ever escalating cost of living ? …….. you mean inflation ? You think the biggest problem confronting Britain right now is inflation ?
Well have a go organising a protest against inflation in that case. I bet you stand a fair chance of getting not much less than 350 people from all over Britain to attend.Posted 6 years ago
