You know very well what the poster is referring to; it's not those who work and need additional top-ups, it's those who can't be bothered and have scrounged off the state all their lives. I'd certianly call that a hand-out, becasue that's what it is, whichever PC label you put on it
You are right. There’s a big difference between those decent people with the self respect who work long hours sometimes on minimum wage and the lowlife claiming every benefit going by spitting out endless children as a lifestyle choice. Removed

Large companies pay all that they are required to by law. Their ability to employ clever accountants and lawyers and their global presence means there is nothing can be done about it.

'People should work to support themselves.' What a smug, uninformed comment. There are hundreds of thousands of people who want to work but can't get a job and people like me who did work and had to stop working because of chronic ill health. There are hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities who cannot find suitable work or employers who will accommodate their disabilities. You're lucky.
You miss the point. It's not you or disabled or old or sick. It's the baby machines who knock out a sprog every 3 years by different fathers who dont give a flying f ... , this for twelve years so keeping them till they are 50. Ni paid so full pension. Then go crying about how low the benefits are after the family allowance has stopped. Those people are the ones receiving handouts which annoy most Removed
Why delete my comments on MM Auntie ?

Are you being paid to do so ?

Freedom of speech and all !!!

Sources say the BBC are already firmly entrenched this side and the other side of the channel to report on 1/1/21 and beyond. Their aim before its even had a chance to get going is to tell us what a ‘bad idea’ it was leaving the EU.
We will be barraged with more negativity even though those voting to leave knew there would be some disruption, but would be sorted out after a short time.
Shameful!

Cut foreign aid ie payments to China/India etc who don;t need it or various despots in Africa who then use it for private jets or investing in Arsenal! Oh and stop everything to a major enemy - Pakistan - until they sort the corruption, attacks on Christians (especially little girls) and backing terrorist groups worldwide.
No aid to India for nearly a decade idiot. Removed

I bet you don't have 1 iota of evidence to back up that claim, brexit BS to the fore yet again.

I'm a public sector worker and have dealt with a huge increase in work load as a consequence of Covid. I refuse to accept a return to austerity when this government has wasted Billions with hand out to their chums for doing nothing.

£2-5 trillion is the cost of Brexit, according to the Government themselves.

BRINO keeps the figure at closer to £2 trillion, prepare for Johnson to cave in to the EU.

Still, £2 trillion eh, what a waste?

WE (the Govt) has borrowed money from ourselves (B of E). We can repay on our own terms (if at all)

The EU can't do this because it has more than 1 currency and more than 1 Central Bank

Just 1 benefit of BREXIT.

Another benefit is that we won't have 2 pay into an EU Covid rescue fund to help all those Countries that couldn't afford to really join the EU

Another is we have the Oxford Vaccine
Having our own central bank was a benefit of not joining the Euro, absolutely nothing to do with Brexit as staying in the EU wouldn't have meant joining the Euro.

We negotiated an opt out to bail outs in 2016.

I'm pretty sure the Oxford vaccine would have been developed were we still in the EU.

So you're wrong on everything and a complete idiot. Nice one.

I think you're referring to asylum seekers. Maybe if you looked into what they're fleeing from you might see why all civilised countries have agreed to shelter them and we don't do anymore than any comparable country in that regard.

What a month!!
The immigration bill became law on the 11th of this month. EU citizens as of the 31st December will no longer enjoy freedom of movement
Yesterday the fisheries bill received Royal Assent and became law taking back control of our waters
Funny how the BBC forgot to mention either, perhaps they did not notice.
Maybe they think if they ignore it, it will go away, a little like Brexit

Sir Keir will walk into NUMBER TEN after this fiasco and rightly so. BoJo isn't fit for purpose. Starmer wipes the floor with him at every PMQs. Never seen a PM so flustered.

The Covid and Brexit disasters remind me of the poll tax debacle that sent Maggie and the Tories packing. Only takes something that affects everyone to oust a terrible government. No confidence vote and Election asap please.
Also, as a socialist, I'd like to see Starmer treated the way Achilles did hector Removed

So make UK poorer. Well done. Did you vote for Brexit, by any chance?
Why are we sending 3 BILLION to Pakistan where girls are abducted daily, raped or forced in to marriage then the husband claims the 12 year old converted willingly to Islam, where corruption is 'normal' and hatred of the UK is inbred? Personally I think we should use Foreign Aid for when we send helicopters to the Caribbean dropping off relief supplies as they are doing this week, not MoD budgets Removed

I've seen enough of Bumbling Boris to know practically anyone could do a better job than this inept clown without a manifesto!

LOOK at his track record in his first year - Covid, Brexit, untested covid patients in care homes, sending untested uni students all over, refusing free school meals until Rashford stepped in, u-turns galore and lying to the Queen.

Your name says more, full of hot air.
