SCROUNGERS

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
One thing for sure the conservatives have well and truly made the word SCROUNGERS stick all on benefits are now seen by many as scroungers and thats it ..over the last couple of weeks we often listen to M.P`s in the media and you hear it all the time " these people on benefits" these people what a disgrace .. one M.P. last night said she did not know enough about the next benefit rise ie 5.2% or 4.5% or even the 2.5% that osborne may introduce she would not even talk about it ..yet she is sitting in parliament and will no doubt vote on the benefits of welfare reform..
if the benefits are raised by 4.2% and not 5.2 % that will raise enough 1.5 billion for the fuel duty to remain as is ..if we receive the 2.5% that will return to the treasury enough for the new first time house buyers scheme 3 billion ....and Nick Cleg said he would never balance the books on the backs of the poor .....

as they say why should someone working have a pay freeze or just a 2.5 % rise and these people on benefits get rewarded with a 5.2% "pay rise" .who are these people ..

state retirement pensioners,
widows .widowers ,
war widows ,
war disabled pensioners ,
carers .
D.L.A. claimants
A.A. "
I.B. "
I.S. " AND ON AND ON DO THESE PEOPLE NOT NEED A 5.2 % RISE IN BENEFITS WE HAVE SUFFERED THE HIGH INFLATION OVER THE LAST YEAR AND 5.2% OF NOWT IS STILL NOWT- I AM SURE MANY CARERS AND THOSE ON OTHER BENEFITS WOULD BE HAPPY TO BE IN WORK EVEN WITH A PAY FREEZE ......WELL APART FROM THE SCROUNGERS THAT IS ....
i would love for the wife's alzheimers to be cured and go work full time,i could be on £500 a week in the taxi but instead i'm constantly juggling figures to make life work and sat in front of the computer checking the benefits have gone in and that if i've spent extra ie car repairs that i can still afford to live,my latest headache is that the snow doesn't come so i can work my 16 hours till christmas so i can pay for it,if i can't work here comes more debt,does the government have a clue about carers,we are not scroungers,we are good honest people trying to do the best for are familys and a lot are like me scared and depressed by the situation they are in but have to kick themselves up the rear end and go work and leave there caree so they get working tax credit and the small wage just to survive,thank god i've got a boss in a million or i'd have gave up and gone under yonks ago
I'd give my right arm for my sons not to be disabled and go to work and not be 'stuck in' all day waiting for yet another phone call saying one or other is in hospital accident at school or excluded. I would give anything not to have to go to endless meeting with so called specialists that change their mind every 5 months or put up with the professionals (read senco) telling me how to suck eggs...

list is endless...

Nice to be accused of being a scrounger. Good to know what the government thinks of me.

trade you for my bike, our one bed flat and the winter coat I got in the Prospect Hospice shop?? Image
I would love to got to work but my mum needs me. without me mum is housebound and who would be here to get her bathed/showered, dressed,breakfast,medication help her to the loo etc.

I have even tried looking for part time work so i can keep my carers allowance and soon as the employer hears or see's the word "carer" they do not want to know. I would love a better life for me and my mum and to be able to see my partner more but i cant. We have to watch the pennies as if i wait for social services to get things for mum i will wait for ever! mum/me have just had to buy to pressure cushions which were £50 for the two. it may sound cheap as i have seen others alot more but that is a months Gas for us so we will have to be careful how much we use now!

I hate been called a scrounger and so does my mum by he government who only thinks of them! dont seem them having to go without anything. going around in their posh cars,flying around here there and everywhere and having big houses,being warm and nice dinners all paid for by us! we still pay tax on benefits.
