I am not asking about your personal life far from it, I am talking about child allowance, with is benefits, people without children do not get this benefit do they?
Thus it is a benefit, hence they question to you, which is not being personal

I would prefer to talk about it generally, which is what I just did. What is your opinion on the matter?


That actually when you think about it many people receive benefits, because they have children, though to me the responsibility of starting and raising a family is with the parents

Well then some people would say that would only allow well-off people to have children.

I don't believe benefits have been cut Fluffy.

You're an idiot then.....Most of us knew that anyway though.


February 2012:


The jobless will see their benefits rise by 5.2 per cent next year, MPs agreed last night – while millions of workers face a pay freeze.


Ministers said benefit claimants will get an inflation-busting increase to protect them against ‘cost of living increases’.

January 2014


And in Britain since 2010, when the Coalition came to power, spending on welfare as share of GDP has barely moved – falling by just a quarter of one per cent over three years, according to OECD data.

By contrast, more than a third of developed nations have cut their welfare bills steeply in that period. Germany has cut social security spending as a share of GDP by 3.4 per cent, Canada by 3 per cent, Iceland by 4.2 per cent, Switzerland by 7 per cent and Estonia by 11 per cent.

Cuts have been in administration, not the cash we hand out to the sick, lame and lazy.

Hardly, I come from a very large family, who believed it was their responsibility to raise us, it just means you put the due care of your children first above yourself.

"Vulnerable people"

Leftwing PC talk for lazy scrounging benefits claimants who don't want to work

I always wonder what people mean by "vulnerable". If they mean severely disabled people who really can't work, that's one thing, but if they just mean people who have been irresponsible and who feel they are "victims", that's another matter. A lot of people are vulnerable in different ways, but they just get on with it and do their best.

Well Ragga,I can only tell you what i mean by the word vulnerable.

People who are too ill to work or for some reason are unable to find work and these people need to eat.

If we didn't pay benefits to those out of work those individuals and their children would starve.

That's true but Raggabint thinks that she knows better than GP's etc, over people that she hasn't even met!  Laughing
