I Don't Suppose You've Thought About Getting A Job?

Samantha Morgan, 48, from Hove, and her two children are currently living in temporary accommodation but have been told by the council that they are not able to find them a permanent place of residence.
They are currently staying at The Wardley Hotel in Hove and their rent is being paid for by social services.
 No it isn't. We, the taxpayer, are paying.
Ms Morgan said: “I am on benefits so I had no way of getting a private house and the only reason I went private at first is because I had to leave London."
She said she had leave due to problems in her life there and for her own safety and had no choice but to rent privately.
And then not pay the rent. Of course.
“I then ended up with rent arrears from the private accommodation that I knew nothing about until an estate agent came to see me at the property, ending up with me being given an eviction notice.
You 'knew nothing about it', eh?
“This is what made me and my family homeless and I then took myself and my children to the Brighton and Hove City Council for help as I have no family or friends I can live with.
“They then put us all in temporary accommodation in Hove, saying it could take up to 18 months to re-house us and we have been here now for five months for them to tell me they cannot help or house me and my family because I made myself intentionally homeless.”
That cheer you hear is the long-suffering taxpayer...
Ms Morgan said she was told by the council to contact social services because her 16-year-old daughter, Brooke is still a dependent and also on a college course that has two years left before completion.
Her daughter was told by social services that she may now have to either go into foster care or live in a youth hostel called The Foyer.
Ms Morgan said: “It is completely wrong to make a child go and live on her own when she has a loving mother and a brother to help her grow and nourish her, which they are taking away.
“My 19-year-old son Callum and I will be on the streets because they will not pay for us to stay in temporary accommodation.”
Get a job, leech.

Surely Callum could earn a bob or two on the streets. It is Brighton after all.

“My 19-year-old son Callum and I will be on the streets...,." If he is 19, then he is not classed as a dependant so he can go an join all those ex military that our caring, sharing, society, have let fester on the streets, underpasses, and alleyways. Especiually as they are more deserving than him.

Indeed, the poor tax payer pays for folk who can't be arsed to get off their fat bum and find work. No work in Hove, then move and work elsewhere. Welfare should be an emergency stop gap and not a way of life passed down generations. I'm so angry I could burn stuff.

Hey, people have SOME standards!

You say that but in all seriousness would you yourself want to employ someone like that? In any role? I see it a lot-being a benefit scrounger myself. Although I would cheerfully swing for IDS , he does have a point, people on benefits tend to become unemployable and this 'Lady' (I use the term in jest) is a good case in point.

Hmmm, you do indeed have a point. But what then? We support him for life, because the effort of getting work out of him outweighs any benefit of working him?

It's a no win situation, isn't it?
