There is a lot of talk about so called poverty in the UK. Many of these so called poor can afford to buy expensive smart phones for their children and expensive trainers. They have satellite TV and many can afford expensive tattoos.
They can afford to drink and smoke but never think about growing their own food.
Many of these so called poor choose not to work but are rewarded with free social housing, rents paid, council tax paid, free NHS, free dentist and prescriptions. Their children get educated for free. Yet they contribute nothing toward society. I know one bloke in Daventry who was given a free 5 bedroom modern house, free people carrier car and gets over £60,000 tax free in welfare.
The Joseph Rowntree report shows that most of the real poor in the UK are people like me who work. I am on the minimum wage. Half my wage goes on rent and council tax.
When I lost my job many years ago I had to sell my flat then could not get any welfare due to having money in the bank.
Even though I have high rent and minimum wage Universal Credits say I earn too much. I am taxed also on my wages and as a single person only get 25 percent off my council tax. A couple have 2 wages coming in so can pay half the rent and council tax each. I get no help with my prescriptions or dentist costs.
Taxes raised of the working poor go to help those who choose never to work. No Government has ever tackled this issue why we must pay for the freeloading parasites.
there are over 19 countries that the UK gives over £100 million each to in aid. Why some like Pakistan get over £300 million yet can afford nukes.
