on news today mp IDS is saying about putting people back into work and to make benefit system (sounds like top ups) so that people wont be worst off working than receiving their benefits.
how on earth is this going to work because at the moment many work and get less than benefits...
are govt going to give loads of exisitng low paid workers more money? dont think so as they are already cutting tax credits.
dont see how this is going to work at all
p.s Boris on tv atm...nice to be so happy on income he is on!

    i agree.
    remember "police houses" where they lived in community. If as led to believe 1 in 5 are public sector workers and not high paid 25% of council properties should be solely for these workers.

    You are both so right - it makes you very depressed if you sit and think about it.

    Guess what we have to do is contact our MPs and SAY something??
