UK BENEFITS SYSTEM

Postby martincymru » Tue, 20 Jun 2017 1:06 am

I, Daniel Blake / director Ken Loach.

For those of you remotely interested in seeing what life is really like for a significant minority in the UK.

I watched it yesterday on the plane back from the UK.

I visited my home town past couple weeks. It now has 22% unemployment so this moving film is particularly poignant for me.

Unfortunately, the social politics kills UK from the inside... Most part of migrants functions in the society with the help of the government's money. It makes people get laziest and laziest. Working? Why when you can live on the medium lvl without any effort.
To want to, is to be able to.

That's downright bigoted and racist. And considering that you are posting from Poland...

And not funny since Polish migrants are considered the most hard working in UK.

The irony is when s/he says "migrants" s/he most likely thinks the Muslim migrants, but for the same statement coming from the bigoted and racist native white British counterparts, they would mean most often Polish migrants.
