I am well aware there are plenty of genuine people claiming benefits and I am also aware that there are many not so genuine. I have seen over many years that alot of people think the benefits system is theres to dip into as much as they can, and I cant honestly say I know anyone who hasnt lied or exaggerated. I have worked since I left school and when I had to go on benefits, I found it to be very hard and I know what it is like not to be able to afford food. But some on benefits still have lots left to go out or buy drugs or drink and I still feel there is a real problem with the mentality of dole head kids watching mum and dad never work and continue to have as many children as they fee like. I became more biased when I was classed as dole scum, because thats how you feel sometimes the way they treat you. I mean benefits, doctors and housing, I have had one person only in four years who supported me and that is out of many contacts. I am not someone who usually rants about these things, its just what I know from experience. I was a civil servant and I have seen alot, even well off cheat and lie, but Im getting more angry and frustrated with my life. I dont know where I stand anymore, and Im sick of being ignored. Cant help the way im feeling, everyone getting on with their lives, spending, having fun times and holidays. I cant do any. Im sounding so bitter, but who can I blame??
