Rob W wouldn't you be happier just ignoring them, it's is life how he wants to live it, not everyone who as a sat dish as sky tv maybe he as freesat.

In the shadow of all the pathetic government legislation which effectively targets the sick & disabled, the continuing sage of people who continue to reap the rewards of the benefits system.

A neighbour of mine. He is 51 years old. He left school at 16, went straight on the dole & has been there ever since! He has not worked one hour of his entire adult life! He is married, he & his wife chain smoke, are regular attendees at the betting shops & pubs, takeaway deliveries arrives two or three times a week. He has a car, Sky TV, lounges about in bed til noon before getting up to put a bet on & going to McDonalds for breakfast. The other week they had a 50" TV delivered. Always jabbering away on the Galaxy smartphone. Makes me sick!
I feel you Rob.

McDonalds is evil.
Sky TV is the Chavs Choice.
I'm sure he needs a smart phone to keep track of all his proper shady dealings.

Seriously... I am aware of people like that too. They exploit the system, are involved in crime and generally behave like selfish, anti-social, irresponsible human garbage. It is sickening.

If anyone has a solution please inform the rest of us - but as the last poster said - just ignore (if possible) them as best you can... but if one day you can't tolerate even the thought of trash like that then consider the old Clock Tower as a good sniper vantage point.

Best wishes, I'll come visit you in the big-house if dem fedz manage to take you alive.

Peace,
Amumu. :mrgreen:

No it's sky. He can live how he chooses but he should finance it himself.
I must be getting old ,i can remember when benefit scroungers used to have 30in tv's.
and then moved on to video recorders and microwave ovens :lol:
Mine is a general rant rather than a carers rant if that's OK.

Why is so much stuff these days a) poorly made and b) made abroad.

I ordered some leather boots from Clarks and they're way too small (despite me always buying size 6 at Clarks) and they're made in Cambodia.

I admired a lovely bird design tea towel and Mum bought it for me. It's by Ulster Weavers and the weave is so loose that you can see daylight through it. I looked at the label and it says it's designed in UK and made in China.

Yes. Yes, and thrice Yes. :lol: :sick: :evil:
She's first for the chop when they bring in the new assisted suicide bill, methinks!

Because most of it is made by 10 year old children chained to factory benches for 16 hours a day?
Where possible, buy local, buy good quality, and protect local jobs. It isn't rocket science.

He sounds a bit like the members of the Houses of Parliament, the Lords, and the Bankers. They have no idea what hard manual physical work actually is, but my oath, do they reap!
