Steve Mc Queen said:I am a mortgage adviser and I have been approached by several EU immigrants for mortgages. When I told one he had insufficient income for a particular mortgage he asked me if he could take into account benefits!. I was suprised to see how lucky he was. Working family tax credit, child tax credit, disability living allowance for his wife. Oh yes and his daughter gets £30 per week education Maintenence allowence and they are in reciept of housing benefit. Arrived in UK 6 weeks ago.
you cant blame them for claiming what they are legally entitled to, the problem is our benefits system. i've said it a million times and i'll say it again, scrap benefits, all of them. use the money that saved to reduce taxes for workers. all of a sudden the country goes back to work and the lazy struggle to survive, the way it should be.
why do we need to import workers while we pay so many to sit on their arses watching daytime tv.
