Freezing Pensioners

Allow pensioners to live at a temperature of above 39F in the winter. Why , If you have lived in a grade 2 listed building all your married life, should you be forced to live in freezing temperatures in your old age ?

I will be 72 years of age in December .For the last 2 years at least, me and my companion, have been forced to sit in one room, when we could not get the temperature above 39 F in spite of spending £60 a week on solid fuel.My rates are £253 a month.

I would be better off living in a shed with a parrafin heater, than trying to live in, and maintain this listed building, which I love, but the powers that be, force me to live in a freezing environment, because it suits them

immigration

I am very pleased that when reading the other comments I see that none of them can be classed as racist. only a genuin concern for the amount of people that have been allowed to settle here my own feelings are that if a person has left his or her family behind in a so called violent country they should be sent back .I believe that most immigrants  are men  why are they not in their own countrys trying to help make things better. any illegal person caught entering this country should lose the right to claim asylum and should be deported straight away. without the right to appeal I do believe that some of these people cross 3 4 5 countries to get here are we to believe that the other countries they pass through  will not help them .  stop giving our hard earned money to them in benifits hand out food tokens not cash .and just maybe the people that  work might feel less angry at how their money is used  we will always help protect the weaker countries if we can . but for now  until we can sort ourselves out  it must be that old saying  charity  begins at home even the people born and bred here are being refused help  so how can we keep taking  more and more  people in

Create a social benefit loan system

Everyone hits hard times sometimes and society as a whole has a moral obligation to assist. However, because those who live solely on social benefits are disincentivised from working if they afre better off not working, perhaps we need a system that is based on contributions made to the system.

1) NI number linkage of service use and benefits that accrue like an annual bill that can be in credit or debit based on your level of contribution and benefit from the system.

2) It is a loan if you go 'overdrawn' that becomes payable when you are self sufficient again.

3) If you fail to repay, the debt is passed to your estate.

4) Capping of benefits is introduced – a tapering system where eventually if you fail to support yourself, the state no longer has an obligation to.

5) Failure to repay a loan affects your crediting rating and deductions from bank accounts or pay.

This would STOP this ridiculous system where some people put into the system entirely for the benefit of 'scroungers'

Restrict family size unless parents can provide

I think that there are too many people who have several children and who have no responsibility yet expect the state to pick up the bill.

A law that restores the balance of civil liberties such that the exercise of the right to found a family goes hand in hand with the responsibility to ensure that you are able to provide for your children is urgently needed.

One common sense approach is to restrict family size by making it compulsory to have depo vera injections to prevent further pregnancies for those who are on state benefits and who already have 2 children.

That way people are responsible for supporting their children – rather than maximising how much they can claim from the state.

better regulation of winter fuel allowances

A bone on contention with most people is the fact that people are getting the winter fuel allowance who do not need it – people living abroad, people with large properties etc.

Could this allowance not be "means tested" by being linked to Council Tax?

For example:

Council Tax is paid by people in this country when they live in a property.  So as an example, someone who is living in spain would not be paying council tax on a property in England, or if they are still registered, would be getting a discount such as "second home".  If they are getting this discount, they would not be allowed the winter fuel payment, as they are not living in the property.

 

Also council tax bands – most elderly people live in a property in bands A, B, or C.  a property with a band D is normally a large family property.   Winter fuel payments could be linked to the property band, so as those in Bands A – C get the payments.  Those who live in the larger properties shouldn't need it, therefore would not qualify.  That would allieviate the millionaire pensioners who still get the payment.

As local government already have this data, it could be shared with the DWP (as other information currently is) so would not cost a great deal to implement.

Stop Family allowance for people earning more than 50k

I think family allowance should be stoped for people earning more than 50k

I also think that family allowance should be stopped after 2 children

i think that people coming from abroad who use the nhs or hospitals should have to pay or use insurance like we do when we go abroad.

In assessing DLA and ESA the patients own Drs and Specialists should give the evidence and be believed.

Instead of using non specialists to carry out medical examinations of applicants for DLA and ESA a persons own specialist/s should give the evidence. This would save money and time and would lessen the distress and embarassment of claimants. It may also make it harder for those who fake the severity of conditions for the purpose of gaining benefits and easier for those with genuine need.

Reduce the cost of Benefits and Benefit Fraud

The essential point of benefits is to give the needy the means to eat, keep a roof over their heads, and pay essential bills. Many hard working people are resentful of the amount that inevitably gets spent on smoking, drinking, Sky TV,  etcetera.

With technologies available today, it would not be difficult to issue claimants with a card similar to a Bank card. Money gets credited to the Card directly from the Government. With the co-operation of the supermarkets and utilities, it would not be difficult to ensure that only appropriate items can be bought using the card that would fulfil the role of the welfare state from an 'approved basket'.

If people want the ability to spend money on less essential products like the 12-pack of Special Brew or a full Sky package, then they will need to earn some money to get it. It would also be possible to encourage healthy eating and discourage foods that have contributed to the obesity issue.

Promote couples but not through tax!

A single parent on £30k+ would be generally entitled to working tax credits, child tax credits, child benefit, child maintenence off the non resident parent and a single persons council tax reduction.

Two mouths to feed, utilites for two etc.

However, a couple on 15k each would be expected to live off potentially less add on benefits with three or more mouths to feed, utilites for three or more and full council tax rates.

As an example myself and my girlfriend live in seperate houses. If we lived together she would lose her childcare benefits, all my wages would disappear into funding childcare and her wages would have to stretch to feeding three people and covering the cost for additional utility bills etc.

If it was financially viable for couples in our situation to live together, there would be extra houses for sale, boosting the housing market, a lower C02 footprint and if David Camerons theories are right then children would grow up in a stable household and would be more likely to progress academically

I dont think the government promotes enough incentives for families to live together. And i don't think the tax proposal break for married couples is such a good idea. I would rather the government promote living together as a family through re distributing financial support to couples to encourage cohabitation.

This is not a dig at single parents by the way so if any read this please dont take offence.

stop giving non working immigrants benefits and houses

My Tax Should Not Go Towards Benefits For Others!

i feel that people claiming benefits is atrocious! i do not agree with it wot so ever. young teenage girls getting pregnant and i get taxed from my wage packet for it to go towards people not working spending there benefit money on booze, fags and drugs. and for young mums to claim money and get a house and then my tax goes on paying for there baby. if i wanted to pay for young people to get pissed and for young mums babys i might aswell give it to them my self .

i would rather my tax go to people that actually do something for our country . e.g ambulance , police , soldiers ect.. this is something i feel very strongly about. i would rather my tax go on people like them not going towards people who claim!

and help support the families of all the genuinely disabled people in this country that will and in some cases already have killed themselves over decisions made in their Work Capability Assessments and DLA Medicals and the worry the prospect of losing their DLA is already causing them, like the man in scotland who was found dead next to two letters informing him that he was having all his benefits removed.

childcare payments of 70% should be stopped

usually we have children because we want them, therefore why is it necessary to give the parents a huge injection of cash to dump their kids into childcare, this is causing a huge gap between the parents and the youngsters – creating sociopaths who crave attention and join gangs, parents hould be taking their responsibility seriously and looking after and nurturing their offspring. what happened to making sacrifices when you have a family? this going out to work when the baby is 6 months old so they can afford to take a foreign holiday etc., is changing society and we the tax payer are taking on the responsibility of these kids – i dont want that responsibility, i've had my own kids and brought them up myself without handouts from the government.  why are the childless couples, the single men paying for these parents to work and have holidays and  nice things? if parents want to work, fine, work but we shouldnt be paying for it.

Stop announcements rather put forward ideas to the bodies concerned

My idea is straightforward and simple.  I am disabled, I am Fifty years old and I have been fortunate to have received a good education, continue through University, and work before and after a post graduate year.  Unfortunately, due to poor health, pain and frequent fatigue, I have been medically severanced, I pay tax and council tax.  I also am forced to top up the difference to my pension with Incapacity Benefit and I am in receipt of Disability Living Allowance.

The point I wish to make is, please look at every person as an individual.  I am depressed as well as living with a chronic condition, and a debilitating spinal injury which is treated by opiate medication.  I would love to have my health back and to work again, however, this is something I have been advised against doing.  I have tried going back to work by attempting to hold down a voluntary job in an area I thoroughly enjoyed.

With respect, I am finding Mr. Cleggs attitude about working being the best thing for people who are claiming benefit and that once in the system it is difficult to get out.  Please, I beg, do not tar everyone with the same brush.  There must be countless people like myself.  I am on Incapacity Benefit and DLA, I am worried beyond words, I am not sleeping and making myself ill.  I am being referred to the local mental health team because of all this.  Last year I was called in by Atos for a return to work medical, my GP intervened, It is not practical.  Donna from Atos informed me that I could have two years to get over it.  This shocked me beyond belief.  If I could I would cease claiming incapacity benefit, in fact any goverment benefit which over the years I have paid into through National Insurance Contributions and Tax.

I have been badly affected by Mr. George Osborne's DLA medical proposals, It was only whilst I was receiving Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy, that my mobility component was increased and this was for a fixed time, last year, It was as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders when I was awarded DLA for an indefinite period.

Like many other people I am feeling extremely anxious, vulnerable and have no where to turn.  I am someone with a Degree and a vote.  I have worked for a major company, I have held a position of responsibility and taught.  I am considering returning to teach and all for reasons which i am being forced into.  I am extremely worried about my future.  My white blood cell count is lowering, due to stress, lack of sleep and bujeting on a spreadsheet isn't helping.  Without my DLA I lose my mobility, no car, i will be even worse than now about attending my hospital appoinments. 

Please, this is my suggestion, that rather than suddenly announcing to the public about such cuts, you did it again last week to the middle classes about Winter Payments.  I am I have to say a bit ignorant there as I am not  a person who claims them, I am  not on Income Support but Incapacity Benefit, I pay my own prescriptions and my life is sorting out a dosette box, starving myself regularly for ultra shound x rays.  You see, i have two three major conditions, two chroninc and potentially fatal, the other one is degenerative, it will get worse.  At the moment I see very little point in existing any more, I am close to tears, I believe that I am not the only one, I have read similar stories.  If someone, irrespective of having worked before or not is on Incapacity and DLA then there has to be a reason.  It took much investigation, medicals, specialists and doctors being consulted before I was awarded the higher rate mobility and middle rate care;  I am fotunately able to now afford the help of a lady who has a key and if I was in so much pain would stay in my spare room..  I am indepedant and like to do what I can, however pain kicks in all too quickly and I am relying on my help.  I am fortunate to have my car, I do not drive it when I am having a painful episode as I take break through medication on top of that which is prescribed, I also take medication for my other two conditions. 

I apologise if this is appearing to be about myself.  What it is, is an individual account.  I am one of many, many people all with stories to tell about my fears, concerns, how I would adddress a problem like you the Goverment are faced with.  I was no fan of the last Pm, however there is a man who pushed his health into the ground.  I just feel that WE ( THE PEOPLE AFFECTED BY YOUR NEW POLICIES) do not stand a chance to put forward to you how we feel, I know I am not alone in this.  I do not have much strength left in me here, but something has to be done and I am appealing to you to go about all of this in a different way.  Please go about this differently, consult disability organisations, it is easier that you think to find the scroungers on the system, most of them are sitting at home claiming Income support or ESA and Drinking to excess.

Child Benefit – Time to pay for your own progeny

Isn't it about time that those among us who wish to perpetuate the species, pay for their upkeep.

In a modern society it is unthinkable that those tax payers who do not have children, (for whatever reason), should be asked to pay towards their maintenance.

If you can't afford to support them – don't have them!

One would not ask a neighbour to help pay towards ones mortgage or the car service, or even towards maintenance of ones wife – so why their children?

The idea of paying people to replicate is outdated – unless of course the government are anticipating another world war.

In a modern society it is unthinkable that those tax payers who do not have children, (for whatever reason), should be asked to pay towards their maintenance.

If you can't afford to support them – don't have them!

One would not ask a neighbour to help pay towards ones mortgage or the car service, or even towards maintenance of ones wife – so why their children?

The idea of paying people to replicate is outdated – unless of course the government are anticipating another world war.

Stop penalising middle income families.

Do not take away the child benefits of those on middle incomes. Middle income families need the child benefit to help pay towards child care costs and necessities. Middle income families are not scroungers. They are hard working people with jobs, who pay mortgages, etc. They don't receive any benefits apart from the child benefit, which is a god send to them. If you want to cap or means test child benefit, do it for those whose household incomes are over £55,000 a year. The child tax credit should have been capped at £50,000 not £40,000.

FOSTERING AND ADOPTION

ITV 1 HAS A PROGRAMME ABOUT THE SHORTAGE OF FOSTER PARENTS FOR KIDS NEEDING CARE – BUT THE REALITY IS THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT THE CARE AND WELLBEING OF CHILDREN IS A SHABBY ' JUMBLE SALE' WAY AND ALL CHILDRENS CARE SHOUDL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THE LOCAL COUNCILS AND PUT INTO A NATIONAL BODY TO DELIVER.

 

HERE IS THE PROBLEM:  PERSON A IS A WORKING WOMAN – SINGLE – WITH A HOUSE AND NO MORTGAGE – SIX YEARS OF YOUTH WORKER EXPERIENCE – AND TEN YEARS OF MANAGEMENT WORK WHICH SHE CAN GO BACK TO, AND WANTS A CHILD. IN ORDER FOR HER TO ADOPT SHE MUST GO THROUGH OVER 6-12 MONTHS ASSESSMENT, AND IN THAT ASSESSMENT SOCIAL WORKERS HAVE ON REPEATED OCCASSIONS UNDERMINED THE APPLICATION BECAUSE OF NORMAL AND NATURAL THINGS – LIKE HAVING AN ELDERLY MOTHER (WHO IS NOT DISABLED OR MENTALLY CHALLENGED) – OR THE FACT THEY ARE SINGLE OR …ETC

 

HOWEVER A FOSTER TEENAGE GIRL GOT PREGNANT BY A LAD WHO IS NOW IN PRISION AFTER SEVERAL DIFFERENT CAR STEALING ACTS AS A TEENAGER.  SHE SHOWED – AS OVER 50% OF MOTHERS FROM CARE DO – SIGNS OF REJECTING HER BABY IMMEDIATELY.

 

THE SOCIAL SERVICES PUT THE CHILD WITH THE GRANDMOTHBER – WHO IS IN FACT THE MOTHE ROF THE SON – IN A COUNCIL HOUSE WHICH GRANNIE HAS HER OTHER SON AND TEENAGE GIRLFIRNED AND THEIR NEW BABY AND HER OTHER CHILD OF 14, A THREE BED COUNCIL HOUSE.  GRANNIE WHO CREATED THE TWO SONS AND ONE DAUGBHTER THROUGH THREE DIFFERENT ABSENT FATHERS BECAUSE SHE "WANTED KIDS" IS QUITE CLEARLY ABLE TO WIPE A CHILDS BOTTOM BUT NOT ABLE TO BRING UP GOOD AND SENSIBLE ADULTS WHO THINK ABOUT USING CONTRACEPTION AND IN FACT THE STATE SUBSIDY OF GRANNIE FOR THE WHOLE OF HER LIFE PRODUCING BADLY BROUGHT UP CHILDREN HAS MEANT SHE EVEN ASKED SOCIAL SERVCIES TO GIVER HER A  FOSTERING PAYMENT – WHICH THEY REFUSED BECAUSE AS A GRANNIE SHE IS NOT PAID.

 

tHIS BABY – ACCORDING TO THE MOST MODERN NEUROSCIENCE AND AUTHORS SUCH AS SUTHERLAND, BERRY, AND SO FORTH, SHOULD THRIVE INTO BEING A STABLE AND GOOD CITIZEN IF IN THE VERY EARLY STAGES OF THE BABY'S DEVELOPMENT SOMEONE WAS GIVEN THE BABY WHO IS A GOOD PARENT.  INSTEAD DUE TO LEGISLATION DEMANDING THE NATURAL PARENT IS GIVEN ALL THE CHANCES TO RAISE THE CHILD AND BECAUSE THERIR IS NO JUDGEMENTAL ATTITUDE TO THE BABY=-MACHINE-DOLE SCROUNGER GRANNIE, THE STATE SEES IT AS PREFERABLE TO HAND THE BABY TO GRANNIE – THAT IS UNTIL OF COURSE GRANNIE PRODUCES ANOTHER CAR STEALING TEENAGER  FRON THIS BABY.   GRANNIE THINKS SHE IS A GREAT PARENT – SOCIAL SERVICES GET A CHEAP OPTION – BUT THE SOLVENT SANE AND LOVING GOOD PARENT IS TOLD THAT THERE ARENT THAT MANY BABIES AVAILABLE.

 

THE STATE WILL HAVE A BILL FOR NOT ONLY GRANNY AND HER BROOD OF NE'R DO WELLS BUT ALSO THE STATE WILL PAY FOR THE BABY TO DO SO, AND THIS ISNT WHAT NYE BEVAN OR THE ORIGIANL HUMANIST MOVEMENT WANTED OF STATE HELP TO THE POOR OR NEEDY.  THERE USED TO BE THE IDEA THAT A HANDOUT WAS IN ORDER THAT THE PERSON RECOGNISED AN OBLIGATION TO THE SOCIEITY THAT HELPED, WHEREAS GRANNY, HER TEENAGER CAR STEALING SON AND HIS CHILD, SHOW NO INTENTION OF DOING ANYTHING MORE THAN LIVING OFF A HANDOUT AND COMPLAINING TGHE SOCIAL WORKERS ARE C+++S.  tHE FACT IS EVEN A SOCIAL WORKER OF EXPERIENCE WOULD AGREE – OFF THE RECORD – THAT WE SHOULD TAKE CHILDREN FROM THESE PEOPLE AND GIVE THE BABYS IMMEDIATELY FOR ADOPTION IN ORDER TO GIVE THE BABY A CHANCE – AND ITS THE COURTS AND THE PUBLIC WHO GET SWEPT UP IN THE ODD PERSON WHO BLEETS THE SOCIAL SERVICES TOOK THEIR KIDS AWAY.  Talking to happily grown adult adopted children and askign gthem if they would have preferred to have been brought up by their alcoholid, drug taking, or simply thick natural parents it is clear that once they met the real thing they were quite relieved not to have been.

Bring in a forced adoption for baby, on the grounds that if you do not do so then the damage caused to the child's neural system – brain damage basically – could have been avoided if the child was immediatgely adopted.

 

Ironically however the good parent who is childless – is given a hard time proving their ability to look after or care for a child, whilst the awful and incompetent natural parent is given every opportunity to mentallly retard their baby – without the same limitations of a judgement call.

 

If you judge prospective adoptive parents as stringently then why are so many baby's still being brought up in awful natural familes who would not ever meet the same levels that adoptive parents have to.

 

The waste of time is of course that the adoptive parents get their time wasted because social services are afraid of a placement going wrong – and they will always go wrong for 10% of adoptions anyway.  Once again we have lost the point of the whole thing.  Get the child with good people – as soon as possible as they are born – and you raise a good adult, and socieity.  Leave a child with bad natural parents and the longer they are there the harder it will be for a good foster parent/adoptive parent to help change the neural circuitry of the baby, and enable them to challenge the brain damage caused by natural parents.

 

We all know that it isnt poverty that causes an adult to be damaged but damaged parents, yet there are thousands of babies being brought up by people who would not pass the adoption application process, and thousands of people who get put off by the arduous and labourous time wasting of the adoption process – who would be better at raising our society.

 

instead the child is put with a family who are judged ;good; foster parents – that is someone who has children of their own – and the child then develops as the add-on to the family and told frequently that this foster placement is not stable and will not last so that when they are moved on or back to mum and dad – the child is not shocked.

Then this instability and brain damage produce adults who produce babies – and the cycle of creating generation after generation of damaged children is continued. 

It is time we did say – this is good parenting and this is a bad parenting – and stop hiring and training social workers who actually dont really have the powers to change that at all.

Stop Ridiculous Wastes of Tax Payer’s Money

Someone please come up with a good idea of stopping huge familys being on benefits reaping in more that the hard workers who actually pay into the system and see no benefit.
