Benefits cap is for the long-term

Whilst the national media concentrate their output on the child benefit cuts - there being no shortage of articulate middle class parents willing to provide vox pops for the media channels - the boldness of Osborne's move in capping benefits is almost sneaking under the wire.


The way he's doing it - reducing housing benefits by the amount that total benefits exceed £500 per week - is clever indeed. Families on benefits with large numbers of children, requiring larger homes, will gradually be pushed out of the more expensive to the cheaper areas of the country in which to live; Bangladeshis and Pakistanis, with high unemployment rates and large families, will be disproportionally affected, and those living in London particularly so. And a good thing too. No one is too pious to work, and Asian families are more likely to have both a mother and father who can both work to support their large families. As a result, the ghetto mentality will gradually be lessened, Muslim women will no longer be trapped in the home not speaking English but will be forced to take their place on the factory floor and chat with the other girls. They will start to limit the size of their families. Integration will be accelerated. 


Most importantly of all - and worth the real pain this measure will cause some in the short-term - it will prevent a much more painful welfare slavery in the future. 


However, the stupid, the improvident and silly Island girls who can't keep their legs closed are set to suffer; the example below, a single woman with 13 dependent kids by different fathers, was used by the Standard's 'Dispossessed' campaign. Nothing will persuade some people towards prudence and continence. Our charity must move them to a remote Scots island, preferably one sans men, but with large homes at low rent, I think.

I do hope ths works - if all we see is the middle class getting continuosly poked and the chavs still taking it in then there's going to be hell to pay...

Word that the lid is now on the honey pot and will be screwed ever tighter will be carried back to the villages quite quickly, no matter how remote they may be, and immigration will decline as a result.

Glory be! There is some thinking going on somewhere.
A bold and necessary step in the right direction, I do hope this move is not the last.


On the above point (previous comment).

Consulates and embassies all over Southern Asia, should be dissuading anyone who is applying for; student visas, extended families visas, travel, business, Medical/sickkness 'tourists', I want a council house now! tourists, benefit tourists, potential drug runners/terrorist visas etc etc from entering Britain.

Further, they - (the British authorities) should be advertising in newspapers on TV - and though many of these immigrants are illiterate, news will percolate down via the 'bush telegraph'.

And those, thinking of reaching the 'promised land' might really have to think again.

"a remote Scots island"

Bugger off, Mr. R!

How about putting them on a remote Suffolk mudbank?

Why should we have to put up with them?

I read somewhere, not too long ago, that visa applications are now dealt with by two private companies, one US and the other Indian, which, if true, suggests that we are contractually obliged to pay them for doing nothing if we wish to stop the inward flow of migrants, a price worth paying I think.

W/Y - I knew that Radders' comment would provoke some one north of the border. :)

Hang on a minute - what was that Scottish island that has just become uninhabited? Gotta be some houses still left...

I hope this prediction comes true, but I fear you may have underestimated the desire to retain cultural values even at the expense of standard of living...

Some remote Scottish Island? There are a couple they use for RAF target practice. An inexhaustible supply of moving targets that fall when hit. Just the thing....! hehehe
