mauvepink BS: All benefits to be taxed (26) RE: BS: All benefits to be taxed 24 Oct 10

We really need to move away from this idea that all people on benefits are scroungers. The majority are not and many of them have worked and paid their taxes in their time to allow for some help now, unlike some others.

Taking the high ground, especially at this moment is time, is temptingprovidence as none of us know when and if we are going to need some help from the benefits system. There will be lots less help for sure in this latest round of attacks on beneits but one can never say never.

There but for the grace of God go I. If you are not on any benefits be grateful you are in such a position. Please don't look down on those who deserve them and group them all in with those who are not entitled but get them. It adds insult to injury and, I reiterate, none of us can take the high ground here. We never know if it will happen to us.
