  1. Should they be allowed cars?

    The German govern-mental tried that one, oh some 20 years back….until they realised that 1.anyone wanting to find any form of gainful employment needed to have a car and 2. us benefit scroungers just registered their car in someone else’s name…sometimes we even asked that someone else first cos we was brought up to be polite, like.

    • "sometimes we even asked that someone else first cos we was brought up to be polite, like."  Heh!  Or else just "borrow" their car [when they're not looking]?

      • That happens a lot over here as well-borrowing cars and such. I read about in the police and court reports in our local newspaper all the time.

        Whe I was a dastardly teenager(you know, the quiet one that came up with the really great plans) myself and a few of my friends once took and unlocked car and pushed it over to the next block into someone's driveway. Parked it real nice too.

        Of course, it was a car that was made before locking steering wheels…

  2. If somebody on benefits buys alcohol and tobacco, then surely most of that is going back to the government in taxes? If they buy other stuff there's not as much tax going back. Thinking about it, maybe all benefits should be spent on alcohol and tobacco to save taxpayers money.

    • There is an argument that because tax and excise are so high, the buyer is in fact subsidising his or her own income and therefore should be lauded and encouraged?

  3. people on welfare like the the blind, disabled and old age pension. maybe he had the retired guards, nurses and teachers in mind

    • Why wait until these people retire?  They are all being paid from the public purse so it is only right that they shouldn't have any luxuries at all?

  4. I'll fix all of this when I return as the next Lord Lieuftenant of Ireland. I'll put them all back in the fields where they can smoke and drink as much as they like as long as they meet the quota. They'll be happy. I'll arrange some crossroads for them so they can sing and dance as they love to do, the little populatory rascals.

  5. They probably would n'all. There's a slot for Minister of the Interior to enable the continuance of the war on tourism. 

  6. I'm guessing the senator isn't offering to abolish all the free, taxpayer funded alcohol at government bashes any time soon?

    Years back, I was secretary to the town's youth club and we wanted some politicos for the official opening of a new scheme we were quite proud of. I was actually ordered by the Department of Education to make sure there was a separate reception (in a separate room to the one for kids and parents) where the politicians and department officials could enjoy 'a selection of good quality wines and spirits'. When I argued that this wasn't the best example to set kids on alcohol I was told bluntly that if we didn't lay it on they weren't coming and the Minister would not ceremonially open the scheme.

    This is the same bunch of public service piss-heads who, within a year of making that demand to a bunch of decent parents and kids, set up a 'Chief Minister's Task Force on Alcohol and Drugs' to help us iggerunt peasants cope with all our problem drinking.

    • We all know it's a case of "do as they say and not as they do".  Legislators are always above the law and also immune from all those deadly lifestyles which plague the peasantry.
