And this is why I pay my tax

Posted in Not the Job by 200

My attention was drawn to another story of another sponging fuckwit this week when I read about Keith MacDonald.

His main claim to fame is having 7 children with 7 different women & another on the way with an eighth woman. He’s managed to achieve this stirling effort in the ‘let other people bring up my kids’ stakes at the ripe old age of 24.

He claims incapacity benefit for a bad back & chest but still manages to hold down a full time job (without the knowledge of the local free money department) working in a shop, so as well as his wages he gets £67.75 a week in free cash supplied by some people with presumably better morals than he has so far demonstrated. He is quoted as saying: “They won’t stop my benefits. They can’t touch me. I might as well make as much money as I can. This makes me some money for myself that the mums can’t get their hands on.”

Because he is on benefits he only pays the mothers of his kids £1.11 a week for child maintenance which comes straight out of his benefits. The Sun calculates that all the benefits paid to bring up his children until the age of 18 will amount to £1 million.

It makes me glad to pay 40% tax on my pension.

    I think the thing that angers me the most isn’t that he’s clearly taking the mick, but that as a result of his actions people who are genuinely broken, either in mind or body then have to fight that much harder to prove that they are incapable.

    Not to mention the growing assumption that anyone on the sick is faking it.

    I’d like to say I’m shocked, or angered, or even surprised by articles like this. But tbh every time I read one, I’m just left feeling disappointed and saddened.

    His time is coming: soon.
    ALL people on incapacity benefit are being medically assessed for ability to work. The newest claimants first, working down.
    When you consider that terminally-ill cancer patients have been assessed as “fit for all work”, you can see what the chances of him continuing to receive benefit are.

    The amount of people I deal with who have ‘back problems’ is madness. I often think “I’ll give you some bloody back problems in a minute” but always think better of it. For the meantime, at least. I hope he gets sent to prison, and then his knob falls off, to put it poetically.

    And yet a friend of mine, who’s worked since the age of 16, is fighting to get any sort of benefit, after being medically retired. Two occupational health doctors have assessed him as being permanently unable to work, but the DWP know better.

    Sickening. Pardon the pun.

    I don`t see how any politician can claim that Britain isn`t broken. It`s entirely lost the plot. And it isn`t one thing, it`s a fatal combination of several changes, none of them particularly disturbing individually, but which combine in catastrophic ways.

    There isn`t a quick fix, nothing that can be spelt out in an election manifesto, or that can be measured with targets, or that any party can claim to be ‘all their own work’.

    We need to start with a new way of governing completely.
