The government has decided that the unemployed should do community service, therefore effectively being stigmatised as criminals. Some may not see it this way, but it's the reality.
Of course, I agree that if people are claiming benefits then they should be working for it, but let's look at the bigger picture here - it's effectively slave labour.
If we take Job Seekers Allowance in my area, £65 a week, add on housing benefit at £80 a week, the unemployed are getting £145 to live on. This works out to be rounghly 23 hours a week on minimum wage.
The government wants the unemployed to work up to 35 hours a week which on minimum wage would be £220, £75 more than what the unemployed would receive.
Of course people will also say "but what about council tax"? Bottom line, no one should be paying council tax as it's illegal and unlawful, ironically so is paying any tax full stop. To which people will then say, but if there's no tax then there's no welfare state? I agree fully. We should look after ourselves and loved ones. Even better we pay the politicians in government (personally I don't want any) the minimum wage. That way they won't institute the mad legislation they do in regards to societal way of life for all.
If the unemployed work then they should be paid the equivalent for the same job. Women have complained all along about unfair pay in the workplace and won. Why should it be different for the unemployed? Technically speaking, an unemployed woman working in a job and getting less than other staff, (men) is unlawful and illegal.
This whole situation is morally wrong. Pay the worker the wage. Don't threaten their living benefits, because you're effectively paying them over 30% reduced minimum wage. More in some areas.
And ask a question also why there are so many unemployed? As much as I don't want to say it, flooding the country with non indigenous and those people attaining jobs means that they're taking jobs away from the indigenous. This is a non debatable argument. The government has flooded the UK with immigrants for various reasons; a voting base for starters, but moreso that more people equals more competition for jobs, therefore a reduction in wage and/or a static wage. Private landlords also smile with glee as more people equals more demand for housing which results in a higher rent.
As usual this is yet more legislation being passed by politicians who are completely and utterly ignorant to how the majority lives. They live on six/seven figure salaries, most of which goes straight into the bank and their day to day living costs are claimed on expenses.
I am no socialist, liberal or tory. I'm just disgusted at the blatantly unfair situation that exists here in the UK when it comes to employment and the indigenous.

Out of curiosity, I'd like to know how many of you believe/don't believe that there is a ruling group of individuals, incredibly wealthy and even more powerful who decide how the world operates?
Some say it's banking families, others say it's ruling aristocracies going back thousands of years. What do you think?
I've done a considerable amount of reading into this subject and I have my own views on what the status quo is. I will remain impartial on this subject. What do you believe and why? Please provide information as to why you believe as you do. Thank you.4 AnswersOther - Politics & Government7 years ago

Now that China has joined Russia in wanting definitive evidence for the gas attack against the Syrian people, blamed on Assad, will we see heads roll of individuals who have been planning this war for a long time, or will we see the usual talk and escaping of international war criminals from justice?
I believe the latter. It's obvious that Assad would NEVER gas his own people, not just because it's wrong, not just because 70% of the population support him but because it would automatically bring US sanctions and the west into action against him and his government. Assad would not bring war to Syria regardless of what the western media says.7 AnswersCurrent Events7 years ago
I ask this in order to get an overall picture of how many people know about the plans for a one world government and banking system, not forgetting the amalgamation of all countries in continents into one, as was so in Orwell's 1984 (Oceania, Eurasia etc etc).
Do you believe that world government will happen?
Do you believe that we are moving into a corporate controlled world?
Do you believe that we're seeing the building of a new feudal system masked by technology?
Do you believe that scientific socialism is being promoted to be the main religion of this world?
Do you believe that people are being dumbed down in order to never see this?
Will the New World Order succeed or will people stop it?
I believe it can be stopped but won't, purely because society has been completely indoctrinated to become dependent upon the state for everything that it needs in life. It's given up its many cultures and traditions, for the film, music and video game industries, not caring whether Babel is rebuilt and all races blend into one homogeneous group.

The more I find out about history, the more I'm realising that the official story is nothing but lies and propaganda. From reading the German story of WW1 and WW2 and more importantly the perfidy of Britain, under the control of Rothschild bankers, it seems clear that the massacre of European peoples in WW1 & 2, was merely an agenda by the controllers of our world, to eventually destroy the white peoples, by using the excuse of needing labour and therefore flooding the west with migrants. Regarding America, the sinking of the Lusitania in WW1 and the knowing by the American government, well in advance that Japan would attack Pearl Harbour in WW2 and yet they did their best to keep silent. It appears that WW1 and WW2 were created for a reason undoubtedly and I'm beginning to see that there's a much more sinister story to be told of it. Your views?14 AnswersGovernment7 years ago

There has been sleaze after sleaze with all of them. Mandelson who resigned twice is in a high up position in the House of Lords?? The two illegal Afghanistan and Iraq wars. The Northern Rock, RBS scandals. The expenses scandal. The immigration scandal...the list goes on and yet from looking at the results, Labour are in a strong second position bringing about, no doubt a hung parliament.
What is wrong with people in the UK? Does this mean that those voting for Labour are no doubt from the ethnic minority and/or newly arrived immigrants given NI numbers and British passports? What's going on. Are people really that stupid?4 AnswersElections1 decade ago
Having read parts of the Talmud I have to say what a truly objectionable book it is and degrading to the Goy (non Jews). I'm not really one who believes in banning things but really, we do not promote the teaching of Mein Kampf and in all reality, the talmud is no different, in its hatred of Christians and other non Jewish faiths. Is it not about time schools in the West warned students about this despicable piece of literature? After all, it was the Jews who had Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice banned in many states in the USA after all. I think it's about time that people seriously started questioning what we know of Judaism and Jewish history, especially in the Western Civilistion. Open debate is a must. I write this from the UK, where the Jewish population makes up 0.5% of the population but their positioning in society, high up in corporation and establishment, greatly outweighs their demographic. Thus, should the Talmud be outlawed as a teaching tool in the West?6 AnswersLaw & Ethics1 decade ago
I'm asking because no doubt this will be standard issue to all police forces already standard for the armed forces and security services. There will come a time where the state will totally oppress society and no one will be able to escape as infra red technology will be used to catch "perpetrators" at night time.
I remember the film Predator, where Arnold Schwarzenegger hid from the alien by covering his body in mud. I should imagine that today, some form of heat blocking suit would be in order, something like a led suit or one that passed freezing cold water around the body.

I'm asking this question because I'm studying animation. The driver is a far harder substance than the golf ball and I should imaine at the time of impact, there is that fraction of the second where the golf ball is still static as the driver hits it, changing the shape for a split of a second before launching the ball into the distance. I suppose the same can also be said for a cricket ball and a baseball, although a golf ball is harder.2 AnswersPhysics1 decade ago

What do you feel about Islamaphobia? Do you think that there is an "irrational fear" of Islam?
Interested in your views very much so.
What do I think? Well, the word is non existent. It was merely set up as a word to protect Islam, as it attempts Islamisation of the West. More importantly, people's fear(if they have one) would be very rational for the reason of continued attacks by Islamic terrorists all over the West and the World.
So I say - made up word and attack on Western freedoms.15 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
Now many of you may have read in the News of Late that the OIC has now just had a Defamation of Religion Bill passed in the UN. It really isn't anything to do with any other religion bar Islam. This law is all about stopping the World from criticising Islam and the teachings and goes into something far more sinister.
As Bat Ye'or describes the OIC in the National Review online : http://article.nationalreview.com/print/?q=ZGVhOWZ...
"The Organisation of Islamic Conference(OIC) is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world. It encompasses 56 Muslim states plus the Palestinian Authority. Spread over four continents, it claims to speak in the name of the ummah (the universal Muslim community), which numbers about 1.3 billion. The OIC’s mission is to unite all Muslims worldwide by rooting them in the Koran and the Sunnah — the core of traditional Islamic civilization and values. It aims at strengthening solidarity and cooperation among all its members, in order to protect the interests of Muslims everywhere and to galvanize the ummah into a unified body."
Firstly within the Human Rights Council of 47 countries, made up of countries from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Latin America and Caribbean States are countries who have violated many human rights and in reality should not be members of a Human Rights Council.
Secondly should an outside organisation(the OIC) with terrible Human Rights abuses be allowed to lobby the UN Human Rights Council to bring about legislation to be passed dictating their every day lives?
Therefore, should the UN Human Rights Council be disbanded, as nothing less than a complete and utter joke and an affront to Human Rights?6 AnswersInternational Organizations1 decade ago
