Welfare State Mentality

Thoughts on the welfare state and the British underclass

Welfare State Mentality

Postby Damo » 26 Nov 2011, 20:53

I don't know if people have ever heard of a columnist called Kevin Myers? He has written an excellent article in the Irish Independent criticising the welfare state.

Quote:

The demoralised consequences can be seen everywhere across Europe: in Roman cafes, in Kentish orchards, in Fingal strawberry-fields, the work is being done by outsiders -- often illegal -- while down the road, work-shy natives are drawing the dole and numerous "benefits" (a now quite meaningless term that is utterly unrelated to its moral, political or etymological origins).

I wasn't quite sure which thread this story belonged in but isn't he just the poster boy for the welfare state mentality:

A jobless “predator” who has fathered 17 children by 15 different mothers was last night facing life imprisonment after being convicted of murder.

Jamie Cumming, 36, who was once branded Britain’s most feckless father, stabbed 29-year-old James Getty to death after a pub brawl, inflicting “lethal” injuries to his heart, lungs and liver.

After the verdict was delivered, Gillian Wade, the advocate depute, told Dundee’s High Court that Cumming had 19 previous convictions, including one for assault to injury.

She added: "The accused is in a relationship and has three children from that union.

"But it is believed he has another 13 children from various other relationships." A 17th was reportedly born around a year ago.

The majority of the mothers, most of whom were just teenagers when they gave birth, are thought to be claiming benefits.
