Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
I was brought up in the era of scroungers. You know why ? Cos Thatcher and her mates cast us aside and we had no opportunities. So while I did go out to work for minimum wages I have loads of pals that gave up and they have done very little work in their lives. They were meant to follow that path. It was no accident.

I hate all that " I bettered myself talk". I didn't " better myself". I haven't changed, but I moved abroad and I have had opportunities that I would never have had as a daft wee Glasgow lassie. If I had stayed in Glasgow I would no doubt be one of those "scroungers" because the best jobs my mates can get are call centre jobs.
