While I understand the slight antisocial behaviour is a problem that should be dealt with, and strictly speaking they should have given the keys back, I do feel that a few bouts of playing music too loud and too late is a not exactly worthy of being evicted. Now if it were causing fights, smashing windows, damaging public property etc... I could understand it. Heck there are a fair few people out there that do all that and still don't get evicted. And really, can we expect for them to refuse to hand over keys unless alternative accomodation was provided for.Back to the specific family .. .. .. as I linked earlier they were one of the few families evicted from their house for antisocial behaviour. Your suggestion of them being "undesirable" is likely therefore to be accurate. If that's the case then, knowing that this could take the conversation to a whole new heated level, why should they receive the level of benefit payout that they do?
It's actually quite difficult these days for the homeless to get back into a house. For most jobs you need a bank account. For bank accounts you need a permanent address. Not to mention all the legality with help and homelessness. This is speaking from personal experience here. It ain't anything to joke about and it certainly is no punishment.
After re-reading the article, I noticed it only said living off benefits for 11 years. He could have been on JSA a lot less time than that. In fact, that 11 years may have been with disability benefit or something. Very tricky that article.Originally Posted by darkprinny
You're also young. They neglect to say which person has the JSA. Is it the father or the daughter?Im what you would call unqualified as well and ive had jobs
Indeed. Been there myself. Have known many people that have been in the position (some still are). I also know how meticulous and the smallest sign that you're not searching enough and they cut your money in a shot.The JSA is ment for people that are looking for work (I know im on it) and they like to ask "What have you done to look for work?"
Desk jobs are for people like that
As are jobs on chat up lines
Technically, they must do to go to the fridge or freezer. The problem is, is that it's not just physical. It's also psychological. And to be honest, I don't think the general public's reaction to this is helping.You can loose weight by getting of your arse at least once a day
