I’m alright jack

If anything this is the attitude that is becoming more and more previliant in the UK.

Especially when it comes to benefits. For years people have been saying that benefits are not enough to live on and yet still the idea that the benefits can pay for holidays, flat screen smart tvs and everything comes on a silver plate.

However, now people are starting to realise that maybe, just maybe those people were right.

Our Sick Pay is roughly £92 a week, trying paying your rent and bills of that. Plus you have to wait a minimum of 5 weeks to get it

Now it is unacceptable and it should be raised and people should get it quicker, but what about all those people for years who have been saying that, why has it taken a fucking virus to raise this point.

Lets not even go on about the stock pilling, the shops are completely out of bread, how the fuck am I meant to give my 7 year old a packed lunch with no bread products.

But its ok, cause those people will be alright. We really have turned into a self absorbed country, or maybe we always were and now its shining a very ugly light onto it.

  2. All the elderly who shop weekly are finding they cant buy what they need. And because the selfish well have booked delivery slots until the end of whenever, the over 70s who ae now supposed to stay at home, can’t get food! And dont get me on the selfish B**** of a hairdresser who insisted on entering my 91 year old father-in-laws house on Monday to cut his hair………she didnt want to lose that money!
