Reading the replies below this article just proves that many people know what is going on here. It`s nothing to do with people not knowing they can claim benefits if they are entitled to them, it`s more to do with NOT wanting to be part of a system that treats people like criminals. But when you have no other form of dependency, your trapped.

It is not just those groups that are off the radar it also the young.

They have set up business selling drugs, it is a well organised operation they use mobile phones to run a line let say selling cannabis and employ several others to do the business, these phones are the lines main source of income and even the smallest one man operation can pull in hundreds of pounds in profit per week.

When enough customers have the number the phones value goes up and they can sell these sim cards for tens of thousands of pounds.as a get out strategy or to take a break and then build up another line.

I know more people that are young that do this than those that go to work it is rife in every town and a massive well organised underground business, why is employment so low? because the young are not filling the ranks having a alternative lifestyle away from benefits, it is no wonder if you look how they are treated by the DWP it is worse than most other groups in the system.

I tell you dboy, if we all had a way of escapism, I`m sure we would choose it rather than be part of a controlling big brother system. Having persistent pain as I do, I already feel that I have some control one day and very little the next due to chronic pain and it`s hard enough trying to manage that without the extra anxieties that hang over us perpetuated by DWP and the way they totally control our existence.

Once you are a pensioner it seems, you have a bit more control again because you have that `carrot & stick` element removed. Although I know Paul is going to come in here and say he still has to work to make ends meet and I FULLY appreciate that many pensioners have to do that. And many don`t know they are also entitled to pension credits either. Then there are the WASPI women who were denied their pensions due to government pushing back their retirement age.

I would gladly live on £50 a week if my rent was still covered, but that would be living below the poverty line which many have to do these days and we are not even given a chance to survive on te money they do pay us without kicking us at every opportunity.

It`s no wonder some people fall between the cracks and admit defeat, ending up homeless or relying on the goodwill of others to help them. It`s a shocking reality and the young millennials can already see their fate. The good old days are gone.

I am with you comply it really does look a bleak future, you mentioned the suffragettes movement in another thread which made me think of woman's rights and equality .

After all the words recently lets look at the facts,

Woman are proportionally more likely to receive a sanction morel likely to be working part time due to caring responsibility more likely to be taking home less pay and still most likely to drop a career when starting a family, the minister for promoting shared parental leave is not taking time off for caring responsibilities and they should be a role model.

Little changes even after a century.

Quote: MPs do not qualify for standard parental leave as they are considered to be “office holders” rather than employees. Arrangements tend to be made through discussion between politicians and their parties.

Well, well....who`d have thought it eh?
