    Over 200K homeless children thanks to GO?

    To do what? work???? plan ahead your life? I seen mentali and physically disabled people working hard and being happy.. Why healthy young people cannot do that?? Sorry love, but you talk nonsense here.. Would like to know how u actually helping homeless people.. donating to charities thousand pounds? sharing your bedroom? spending your holidays on the streets? talking to them late cold night? educating? So what u actually do? I’ll tell you- you comparing homeless with mouses here Smile You have complete no sense about hard life, scammers, manipulators and I bet all your comments and experience coming while you watching dramas on TV or some none-sense Love Island show.. I don’t want to insult you here, but you talking complete rubbish here and cannot prove yourself.. If you serious about kindness and wiliness - text me and I can take you to the places which u wont believe they exist- and is not because of bad life.. is because of laziness..

    Condescending and patronising, well done ‘Zem’. I’ve been lucky enough to work for CRISIS and for what was the DCLG working with Ministers on govt homelessness policy. My opinion was sought because I had lived on the streets for a short while as teenager in north London before joining the civil service.

    In 2010 my marriage broke up I had a break down so I did the sensible thing - re-joined the army so I could go to Afghan and work out my ‘issues’ over there.

    Since coming back I’ve been to two funerals of mates who maybe aren’t as strong a key board warrior like you - maybe they were snowflakes, met the Queen got a medal so started flipping property.

    The point I’m trying to make is that it’s pricks like you who stereotype people that make it harder for people to get on, people like me. So do yourself a favour you (*Moderator note: word removed*) moron keep your boring obnoxious opinions to yourself.

    Dear All,

    Obviously, this is an emotive topic and emotions have started to run a bit high.

    Because of that, I think it best to shut the thread down temporarily, so that everyone can walk away and take a breather.

    I will re-open the thread within the next day or so.

    My usual advice is, if you don't appreciate someone's input on any social media platform, the best thing to do is mute or block them.

    Have a pleasant evening all.

    As harsh and uncaring as it may sound, a lot of us know that there’s a lot of truth in what Zem’s saying here. 
    (I’ve been there, and by the sounds of it Zem has too).

    So agree Zem. Good to hear a voice of reason in this sea of bland, snowflake generation leftie nonsence.

    There are homes out there for everyone just roll your sleaves up and go get it!!!

    OK so you may not be able to live in London to begin with but start somewhere and build off it!

    There are still plenty of homes for under 40k in the UK that would be very affordable even on a minimum wage. I bought a very nice little house for 22k three years ago that needed work.

    So refe

    Yes is very true.. been visiting north west towns agencies recently- you can buy 2 bed terraced houses from 32k.. surely everyone can afford that (even par-timers Smile ) ..Seen many immigrants coming without language, money, work experience and etc. and they still managing to buy their own property within 5 years or so.. so when people talking about vulnerable people and their needs on TV and etc.. I am so annoyed about all these statements..

    I'm with you on this one - sure you are speaking in general terms, however the system has to work for the majority of scenarios (hence general) - and a bespoke approach / process for corner cases - else it fails everyone which is the current state.

    Immigration can be good - however multiculturalism in the UK has generally failed - variety of reasons - topic for another day.

    In the UK there is a mindset that the Govt should provide housing, education, food, opportunities, utilities, protection, income........ now they are being expected to bring ones children up too - with that sort of mentality parents / people are no longer accountable for their own decisions, own actions - they simply pass the buck to the Govt (its always someone else to blame mindset) - zero aspirations, zero commitment to a job, career, generally lazy and depressed. Seems like their main contribution is to procreate. No respect for people, elders, police, teachers - no repuccusiors for breaking the law. With that sort of mindset no wonder that societies are being stressed beyond breaking point as this simply can't be sustained for yet another failed generation.

    The welfare system should be there as a safety net - unfortunately it has been adopted by a growing number as the norm, and its not the consumers of the system that are the only issue, its the people that run the system too - so yes, Govt has to accountable here - within a democracy, the Govt is the people.

    The world is a tough place - we in the UK live in a bubble, a very cushtie one - people need a reality check and wake up.

    The benefits system was created and maintained by Govt, and implemented at ground level (mostly) by the various councils.

    It is those 2 groups above that decide who can have what, not the person themselves. I could say I'd like a gold bar every month please. But if the option wasn't there and 'sorry, that's not possible' was said, then the mindset you mention in detail would not exist. The media love blaming the end user (the benefit seeker) but don't question how the benefit was introduced, by who, when, and at what ongoing cost to society?

    I'm still trying to work out how far and long this experiment will go on for? The Cons can blame Labour, but other than the 'bedroom tax' and cutting back the numbers of the people on the ground who enforce their system, they haven't done much to change the mindset mentioned this decade.
