Childish troll
The Tories being called 'The Nasty Party'?

So we have all forgotten about the Labour Party being found guilty of antisemitism by the E&HRC?

And didn't Dame Louise Casey herself investigate the Rotherham abuses which were ignored by the local Labour party for decades?

Grow up you pathetic troll
How about only giving the £20 universal benefit top-up to families where neither of the parents smoke or drink alcohol?

Or perhaps the Comrades don't want people to suffer 'fag & booze poverty'?

Does anyone tell you what to spend your money on? No. Why should people receiving benefits be told what to spend the money on?

How about giving pensioners in the UK a massive rise, considering their retirement pension is one of the lowest in w.europe - the joys of being the '5th richest' economy?
What is it they say about judging a country on how they look after the elderly?

Set the example and give to the poor.
How many of those on universal credit have cars, TV/phone contracts, drink alcohol, smoke, buy drugs or pamper themselves before feeding their kids. It is obvious they don't spend child benefit on their kids to buy food but instead rely upon the state to feed them (free school meals) or run down to the food banks to get their weekly shopping.

That you start with a question demonstrates that you don't know the answer, but are happy to toss out a broad characterisation to whip up antipathy towards those struggling under financial difficulty

I dont drink, dont smoke, dont do drugs, my laptop is falling apart because i cant afford to get it fixed (note i got it when i was working a wouldn't dream of buying it now) My phone contract is only £10 a month and is essential these days. I saved up for all of my luxuries that i have bought this year. If i had kids they would be my first and only priority right now.

Is this £6bn better spent on increasing taxpayer payments to families already on Universal Credit, OR would it be better spent improving the NHS, or given to scientific research, or something else? We need to be creating new jobs, not subsidising those not in work.

Why don't they change the name from Conservative Party to Nasty Party ?

It would make more sense.

On these threads there are a number of people saying things like 'the Tories are the nasty party', 'never trust a Tory', 'Tories give contracts to their cronies' etc. These comments remain.

I have twice had a comment removed for saying that Jeremy Corbyn and some if his allies were Communists and were complicit in anti-Semitism. My appeals were rejected by the BBC moderators.

About time time people learned to cut their cloth, as generations before them had to do, rather than expecting the government to subsidise things from taxpayers money like Sky/Netflix/Prime subscriptions, fags, booze, bingo, junk food, the latest smart phone with 10GB contract. People are so spoilt nowadays, its unbelievable. Removed

I came from a working class family, I put myself through university by working a late shift at Ups.
I have a good job that gets taxed at 40% and its very annoying when the government hands out cash for nothing to people that are to lazy to sort their own lives out.
I didn't get a pay rise last year nor am I expecting one this year so why should benefits increase. All in it together yeah right

Surely during a lock down where all people that are on benefits that don't have to leave the house shouldn't need extra money, you can't spend it on anything other than food, they should have £20 a week to compensate for not being able to spend it down the pub at lunchtime.

Far better idea here...

Clamp down on the masses of benefit fraud, limit UC to what people on minimum wages would make in a full time job and tax everyone in the same bracket the same way. People who work hard to get where they are are always the first to suffer.
