  1. This comment, comes as no surprise, I have always said they want us to work like the Americans and Chinese, the to them UK workers have to good. They want us to have a bad quality of life just like Americans and Chinese workers.

    • “Us”. No. Your rich will be fine. Also, the mystical “us” there…you mean you might be expected to pay tax sometime, eh?

      • Grow up. Im not rich. Why should I Pay Tax to those able to work,. Were the pride in being state depend.

      • Ah, I can’t be allowed my views, etc.
        Same old..

        And right, you’re VERY rich, as you object to paying tax and to society. As you demand people be forced apart, for there to be no society, no spending by governments, that there be no rights…that everyone should be forced back onto their own resources, meaning that the rich control the poor, we’d have things like slavery back in short order, poverty would be the norm…like any country without government or legitimate authority.

        As you demand more tax cuts for your VERY rich, and cut-cuts for the poor. On Welfare Weekly, no less, you’re here to decry the concept of welfare and denounce the elderly and disabled, for starters, as weak…NHS users as weak…the workers who are poorly paid as a result of capitalism as weak…

        That they are not rich and able to afford an fully-supplied Island…

      • people that can work are 99% doing the best they can to find work. time you woke up and support the poor into better paid jobs instead of the brainwashed crap that its the poor peoples fault for being poor…. it is the governments fault for decades of letting businesses pay as little as possible to staff.. that’s why tax credits came about.
        taking away tax credits is going to leave families reliant on foodbanks ect if they aren’t already. and businesses are not forced to make up the short fall in lost benefits…. as david Cameron said he ” hopes they get more pay” yet you seem ok with 10% mp pay rise … that would pay for approx. 2 families with 2 kids each per 1 mp….. or house of lords £300 a day just to sign in then walk out……. for life and never be struck off …. and your complaining about paying for a better future for children growing up with nothing….

  2. Another idiot in office. This is about children, children with working parents. Some have 2 working parents. What they don’t have is a family life. One parent comes in the other goes out. It is breaking family life and child security and discipline. We are storing up a massive problem in this country in discipline education and health What happened to the maxim of the strength of the nation lies in the strength of the family.

  3. .prove the idiots still live on planet ZOGWE CAN’T ALL GET PROMOTED BY PROTECTING THE PM FROM BAD PUBLICITY OVER THE NOTORIOUS b sky b deal people desperately worried about their income do not make the best workers time to make people power work for the people

  4. Another person who spells his surname with a H I see…
    In China illegal strikes are on the rise and wages are increasing – I say learning from the chinese could be a good idea! 😉

    • So, you think the sort of mass factory work as China as the only opportunity for most are a good idea. Along with stripping basic rights to lower wages to their levels…

      • It is alarming how China is treated as being a country we should aspire to – rather than being recognised as one of the most appalling regimes in the world (sadly against some very stiff competition).

  5. So, very long hours, very low pay, very high poverty.
    His model.

    And apparently now, how you can’t afford things matter, it’s good when it’s the government making sure you can’t eat, hence, per his ideology.
