mauvepink BS: Government Spying (UK) (28) RE: BS: Government Spying (UK) 24 Sep 10

I used to think if you had nothing to hide you have nothing to fear. I believed that truth and justice always prevailed. That if you were innocent you would be proven innocent and if guilty found guilty.

It is simply not so

I have recently been involved in situations where people have been far and above any possible wrongdoing but have been tarred with the brush of those that have. As for benefits. It seems some of the staff at Jobcentres and suchlike these days treat you like a pariah if you have any benefits and bundle you into the pile of wastresls and con artists. This is simply not right nor fair. I know a lot of people who are unemplyed through no fault of their own. I know more people who are benefits they deserve and are still treated like scroungers. That's not fair.

When you get a pensioner thinking about suicide because of what the sytem puts her through then you know that system is wrong. It's not wrong to catch cheats. It is wrong to label everyone within a system as being cheats. It is part of my job to see that people get what they are owed and deserve to have. I come across some people involved in that system that treat customers terribly. This should not happen.
