DANEGELD

The Danegeld ("Danish tax") was a tax raised to pay tribute to the Viking raiders to save a land from being ravaged. It was characteristic of royal policy in both England and Frankland during the ninth through eleventh centuries.


This is bullshit.

I refer to the plan of Ian Duncan Knob Jockey to reward good behaviour on council estates by letting people buy their squalid, litter strewn shacks at a knock down price.

Bollocks to that. We are currently paying children CASH to go to school, beer vouchers by the thousand, “mobility” grants so the unwashed fat bastards can buy themselves a Ford Escort to get their arses to the dole office every two weeks, tax credits for scratchcards and filthy wonga on a massive scale. Increasing the flow of money to these bastards is not the answer. Cutting off the money supply is. If people misbehave, put the rent up.

People who WANT to get on, get on. Simple as that. People who are paid by us to sit on their spotted arses smoking roll ups and watching X-Factor are not going to get a job until you stop paying them to sit on their spotted arses smoking roll ups and watching X-Factor. The Welfare bill has never been higher and by a strange coincidence, the number of useless bastards has never been higher either.

Make the penalties for not getting on stricter. Do what you like Barry, Aiesha and your prize Pitbull, but don’t ask me to fucking pay for it. You want a house? Keep your nose clean, your head down, work hard and take a few risks.

Just like the fucking rest of us have.

Bastards

It is shocking, innit?

I don't know how people can watch X Factor.

Roll-ups? No, I think not. They're on Mayfair tailor-mades (preferring quanity not knowing quality) or duty not-paid Malboros from their mate Reggie who's got a line going on smuggled fags. It's the rest of us who are on roll-ups to pay for them.

I'm a Golden Virgins man myself but have a lot of time for Old Holborn.

Simple, they're being PAID to watch it.

What do'ya mean - put the rent up?

What the council pay even more for me?

Great, bring it on!

Mike Rouse said...

Hard to disagree.

As I commented over at Guido's place, what about us hardworking young men that haven't got two kids from a previous relationship and don't claim benefits? We can't get council houses - and I wouldn't want one either. We can't get our 'own' property because we're paying too much on private rent, council tax, fuel costs, and a shed load of other taxes to pay for the lazy shits in their council houses with their DSS-bought plasma screen TVs.

Something stinks about this country! ... and I never thought I'd ever say that.

As i said elsewhere, why do we keep pandering to these cunts who are nothing but parasites? I live in a council house in a 'dodgy' area. I refuse to play the property game. I pay my rent and council tax on time every month. I have worked full time since I was 16 years old, (I am now 38), where is my 'reward'? The 'undeserving poor' have a better lifestyle than I do. But i own something better than they ever will, SELF RESPECT. Why do these 'chattering class' fuckwits think they know it all. They know fuck all. The people they speak of are not victims, they CHOSE the life they lead, aided and abetted by the benefits system. Why should people who claim benefits get more cash every time they pop another sprog? Employers don't give employees a rise when they become a parent. Why has the fat layabout who hasn't done a (legit) days work in his life got a huge big fuck off plasma TV, with sky+ and a car, whilst my missus and I scrape by with what we can afford with the anger that my tax money is funding these bastards eating away at my insides?
In my job I am a head of department, with 20 people reporting to my, (private sector btw!!). A lot of them are part time, all men. Some married with families. When we are busy I ask them to do extra shifts and 9 times out of 10 they say no because it affects their tax credits! They get paid for doing nothing, even though the work is there to be done! Where is their SELF RESPECT? The whole working tax credit is a joke. I'm off to buy a sniper rifle and go on a roof top opposite the job centre plus!

And, those who are 'long term unemployed' or 'on disability' or whatever should lose the right to vote. You should only get back from society what you have put in.

I think Monty Python said it best:


Stockbroker :Well I think they should attack the lower classes, er, first with bombs, and rockets destroying their homes, and then when they run helpless into the streets, er, mowing them down with machine guns. Er, and then of course releasing the vultures. I know these views aren't popular, but I have never courted popularity.


The core problem is that these shaved apes have a vote, and are well evolved (literally) to determine which bunch of Whitehall parasites will talk tough while keeping the pendulous benefits teat dripping.

Rogerborg said...

Jinx!

Gareth said...

I am amazed at the article linked to at the bottom. A whole article about unemployment and the parasitic class and no mention of the Conservatives or Thatcher. Despite it being under the previous Government that she got onto the welfare escalator.

Is it now getting through to even the BBC that things are very wrong here?

mad manc cunt said...

Old Holborn is now THE blog. Guido is fuckin' losing it fast with his support of IDS and Boris bollocks!

Anonymous said...

Of course we could try and bring back the industries that once kept these people busy, but middle England thought it best we sell off everything that could be shifted so their mates in the city could have a 25 year long party.

Speaking rationally these people are the toxic by product of this experiment, you reap what you sow and all that.

Would you want some chav outside your gaff with access to tools?

"People who WANT to get on, get on. Simple as that."

Absolutely spot on.

Gareth said...

Anon 13:51,

Should people be employed to make things or should things be made in order to employ people?

This Government in particular is doing the latter with regard to regulation and legislation requiring more and more nannies to watch us. Non-jobs galore. Work share. A huge increase in workforce and even less gets done.

Can we privatise Government?

Gareth, the Germans can still make things people want, and as a consequense have a huge trade surplus, 25 years ago we chose to be office boys, all that metal bashing and science is jolly difficult!

As I intimated we deserve whats coming.

Danielle fell pregnant when she was 16. She has kept the two pregnancy tests in a memory box for Rhys.

Two of Danielle's friends also have babies - they talk about how limited their social lives are now: "At the weekends we'll get a babysitter and go out for a wee drink, that's about it."


Moaning little whore. She and her entire fucking bone-idle excuse for a family are a pox on the nation.

If there were any justice, they'd be starved to the point of having to eat their pets.

Fucking spot on Holborn for PM I say, at least he would bring two eyes to the job.

The current banking crisis is based entirely on people who SHOULDN'T be owning houses being offered them.

Idiots

David said...

SFH: Read and wept...

It takes a special kind of brainless, windowlicking, deadheaded stupidity to not feel guilty about soaking up benefits for 28 years without doing a stroke.

I do believe we should be looking after the people who can't earn a living buth these twunts should starve.

Gareth said...

Anon 14:25,

You make a good point that I completely failed to get.

The Germans are a productive breed. We are not.(Except for debt) Can that change?*

We're not exactly overrun with bright, adaptable native men and women to do the metal bashing or clever thinking.

Even if we imported them that would still leave the unproductive natives to run riot at everyone else's expense.


* The German economy will suffer due to it's quality exports being too expensive, and being dragged down by the rest of the Eurozone. That's not the change I meant but it will happen.

Old Holborn,
First time i`ve ever had to call you a cunt, you cunt but you have got this one very wrong.
I live in a scheme in urban Scotland - wide social mix, varied ownership, lots of people with a stake in the area.
Most people i know round here could round up a posse and blooter any cunt that gets wide with their family or property.
Jakie families are a danger mainly to themselves.

Roger Thornhill said...

This is all part of the "social justice" ratchet/racket.

Once you give an "entitlement" to equity for good behaviour, the state will have to prove bad behaviour. it is a road to hell. The Fabians must be loving their latest "useful idiot".

The reward for paying your rent on time and behaving yourself is to continue to have a roof over your head. Period.

It idea is extortion.

Roger

If I drive my car badly, crash often and am an idiot on the road, my insurance premiums rise, I am regularly fined and eventually, my right to a driving licence will be removed.
