The benefit cap is being presented across the nation, apparently reinstalling fairness to the welfare state, but of course it’s not in fact about rebuilding fairness to the welfare state, it’s about designing a cosmetic idea of it being a fair bureaucracy.


The benefit cap presently binds the total sum of money obtainable to social security claimants.  Total benefits paid to a single person may not presently exceed £350 per week; the maximum at hand to families (single parents and couples with children) is £500 per week, so by the time you have also paid your Under Occupancy and, extra Council Tax, and all your other bills, you have nothing to feed and clothe your children because you’re having to use their Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit to keep your head above water, or else you find yourself out on the street with no where to go.


Child Benefit is paid for the children, that is why it is worded “Child Benefit”.  Nonetheless, because of the Under Occupancy and extra Council Tax and, presently the Benefit Capping, people with families are stealing from peter to pay paul and, their children are now going without, because parents are having to use the Child Benefit money to keep afloat, or live in fear of being thrown out onto the streets.


Child Tax Credit is an entitlement on top of Child Benefit, for the good of the child, ergo why it is named Child Tax Credit, but once more this is having to be utilised to pay for other conveniences that can’t be paid for because the government are limiting every single thing.

To be sure, the government pays out around £2,500 per citizen a year on social security, £160 billion in total and, these plans are indicating to rescue around £3 per citizen a year, that’s a serious lot of reinstating fairness, based on a small amount of money.

This is solely a stunt policy invented to be the winner of attention while the government throw their toys out of their pram.  Give them something to get stirred up about and, it will only spawn them to keep doing it.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
