And, of course, it's the evil Tories imposing the limit.
Oh I don't know, it does allude to the objective of making it impossible for someone to be better off on the dole rather than being in work, ok, so it does it a tad reluctantly.

i might humbly suggest if the original poster does like the line of the observer article, the sunday express or mail may be more up his or her street. i am sure you'll find a more balanced line of argument...

... How you have to feel sorry for those poor wretched souls who will have "only" a £500 a week maximum in benefits! ...
What a pile of sensationalist drivel, urinal. That figure also appears to include child benefits which those in work are also entitled to recieve. Being a 'poor wretched soul' on benefits, and single, I receive far less than half that figure a week. Whilst I'm grateful to the taxpayer for allowing me to exist - just - it doesn't give anyone the right to constantly and publicly abuse those of us who find we are at the mercy of the benefits system. I'd like to see you survive this way ... [n]

...and at the same time that they are advocating cutting the rate of tax for the "super rich" down to 40%.

Oh, and of course being bullied by those poor, inpecunious B*nkers to hold back on much needed reforms against their greed and speculation.

Actually, thinking about it, perhaps those fat cats at the top of those particular TAXPAYER FUNDED failed institutions should have their "state benefits" cut from mega-millions to a maximum of £500 a week. What a "Diamond" idea [y]
