Okay so lets move you somewhere cheaper to be unemployed.
yeah that attitude will get everyone a long way....shouldn't the government be dealing with the real problems, not trying to relocate people into an area with even less opportunity for jobs for whole families....could be condemning whole families to long term benefit claiming.....dumb politics of envy.

It's a bit like Arizona politicians victimising Mexicans. Who do you think made your curry the other night?

Good grief, and the English eating curried illegal immigrant ? "I'll have migrant vindaloo with basmati rice."

But seriously, you're absolutely correct. The same folk who rail against illegal immigrants in California don't mind eating the food they've picked, or hiring them to mow their lawns and wash their cars.

Let's be clear here. They are costing thousands in inflated rents going to profiteering landlords. Totally in line with Tory thinking.

Instead of capping benefits and uprooting people from their home area, we should be capping rents for genuine benefit recipients to a reasonable level.
Rachman type landlords can take it or leave it.

Well yes but no government has any actual control over the economy. How can a bunch of politicians that have very little knowledge or experience of running something as huge and complex as a countries economy (well they haven't have they) have control or make any real changes? The sooner more realise this the better.

All they can do is spin the wheel and hope something works.
