Great minds think alike........

On the 14th, I wrote this post. My comrade in words Delcatto had a number of things to say on the topic.

Today, I had a look at the 'Your Freedom' website and found this posted;

After a rather heated debate from the 'entitled', one of whose comments was this;

The moderator suggested that suggestions of this nature might better be posted elsewhere.

(Yes, I too have been unemployed, and felt lucky to get what small help I did. I recall that stuff like the odd glass of alcoholic beverage and occasional cigar, which I had heretofore enjoyed, were pleasures I had to forgo until I found a new job and my cashflow improved.)

Other topics for UK cost cutting can be posted on this site. Get stuck in.

Interesting comments there but some people appear to forget or ignore the use of benefits as a safety net only. Not to fund an alternative lifestyle to working and earning money.
For the long term unemployed i.e. those who haven't worked for the past five years plus: mandatory gardening; allotments for fresh fruit & veg; clearing & tidying public spaces; whatever it takes to maintain or engender pride in oneself and one's community. For the majority of those who have been made recently unemployed it will be a shock and their desire to find paid employment will be their primary concern. During the times of plenty until the past eighteen months there was no excuse for being unemployed.
