Good to see your still reading my blog! I might have even spotted your sock account on DS and am just waiting to C-Sock you yet again!

Keeping watching, Benefits Boy.

Windy/Fletch is back on BF! What’s his excuse for being absent this time? Has he found another daughter? Has he been massaging his master’s stump or is he a cowardly bottler who’s banned from every other forum for being an anti-semitic, benefit scrounging retard?

We all know the answer. Welcome back freeloader.

The usual benefit-grabbers who oppose any reform of the welfare system. They even moan about food, drug and beer addicts being helped back into work. These handout addicts are next on the list of shirkers IDS will be targeting.  Be afraid scroungers, be very afraid….

Well done Clive.

Fletch/Windy has run away like the Jew-hating, benefit-grabbing coward that he is. I said he was incredibly thin-skinned and you’ve proven my point. He’s no doubt posting under another ID on DS but will eventually give himself away with his anti-semitic views and links to zerohedge/conspiracy fruitloop sites. He’ll then be C-Socked with one of my many IDs.

The irony is he’s so paranoid about me that on every site he registers he accuses someone of being me. I only post on DS and one other forum but Windy/Fletch is so obsessed he seems to think I’m on every board. He inevitably creates an enemy when his tiny mind  decides another poster is Currysocks. It never ends well for him and I’m delighted I have to do so little work to have him chased from multiple sites.

Windy/Fletch is terrified of me and I dominate his internet life.

Windy addition:

Fletch/Windy always needs a forum master to whom he is truly subservient. On DS his tongue was firmly inserted up the rectum of the head scrounger whose stump he would regularly massage. It has been suggested that Fletch was actually present during the operation and held his master’s hand as the surgeon fired up the chainsaw. Windy has been absent from DS as of late, possibly because he’s become aware of the pm’s circulating about his Jew hating posts on other boards or maybe because he was C-Socked a few months ago. Is Windy/Fletch a coward? Has he ever had a girlfriend? It’s always good to end with a question, isn’t it WindyFletch? I know you’re reading this.

The Dregs of DS

                                                                        Stoatie
As the oldest DS virgin Stoatie has a clique of overweight, pensionable female followers who think words such as “Dude” “Yeah” and “Shit” make him edgy and desirable. They, in fact, make him look like a twat who’s stuck in a 1970’s time-warp. Being a self-confessed anarchist Stoatie does what every anarchist does…. post on an entertainment site! As the most sanctimonious poster on Digital Shite he’s obviously involved in charidee work and once took huge offence at criticism of charidees. He was, he told us, inspired to make even more effort to raise money and such was his dedication that he still managed to post on the forums numerous times during the day. Trying desperately hard to verbally satisfy his clique, Scroatie posts excrutiatingly unfunny one-liners that are largely ignored by the majority of DS. Like Mesostim, it is suspected he does ‘t have a life outside internet forums.

                                                           Celt1987/(re)tardis steve/GibsonSG

Grouped together as they form a trio of cretins who occasionally slime across DS but contribute very little in the way of intelligent debate. Retardis is best known for claiming he lives in poverty because he can‘t afford the latest console games while GibsonSG is the forum cry baby who once threatened to shoot himself because his dozy missus couldn’t even manage to post his scrounging application form. Like his workshy compatriots, Celt always turns up to hurl abuse at anyone merely suggesting they agree with the reforms of the sickness benefit system. Unsurprisingly, all three claim to have “disabilities” and unsurprisingly it appears “mental health,” the “bad back” of today’s scrounger, is their ailment. All three live in fear of future DWP assessments, particularly Celt who has anger issues.

Windwalker/Fletch

Jew-hating, conspiracy theorist who’s received forum bans for stalking and anti-semitic vitriol. Windy, a self appointed “financial expert,” blames a small elite of Jewish bankers for, amongst another things, World War 2 and once denied posting links to a well-known Holocaust denier until being forced to spectacularly backtrack. Despite his ungainly Holocaust retreat he persisted with his vile notion that Jews stated WW2 and that six million deaths were part of a master plan to establish a Jewish state. Fletch, in full David Irving mode, also claimed we should use “modern techniques” to reassess the Holocaust. During the Gaza conflict he cack-handedly  attempted to establish the trajectory of every rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists in an effort to debunk the effectiveness of Iron Dome and then went full CT after the shooting down of the Malaysian airliner over the Ukraine. Despite his proclaimed financial expertise it would appear Windy has been particularly unsuccessful in accumulating any wealth of his own and by all accounts is languishing in a low-paid, dead-end job;  a section of society from which many CT’s originate. Fletch’s DS posting style is generally to end  by asking a question, usually in an effort to divert or deflect. This has become largely ineffective, as shown during his  DS Gaza  thread meltdown when he hilariously began to rage against the moderators, no doubt believing they are part of the worldwide Jewish conspiracy. He’s incredibly thin-skinned and having been outed on DS and banned from other forums Windy is desperately trawling the net to find a board on which his warped views will be accepted. Rejected by decent people in everyday life, his last, sad refuge will probably be on the paranoid CT forums until the day he’s inevitably sectioned.

OLD HIPPY GUY

There was once a time when the caps lock on his PC was stuck but thankfully this was only a temporary problem which has largely been replaced with the bold, underlined text issue.  Unfortunately, OHG has a habit of “carpet bombing” the forum with enormous, self indulgent posts, usually sneering. His idea of comedy is to pretend to type a statement but then suddenly stop and correct himself, as if he’s actually speaking. So, we have, “When the Tories won the elec….I mean formed a coalition.” This is repeated ad nauseam and one of the reasons most forumites find him extremely tedious so scroll through his posts without reading. There is nothing OHG hasn’t done. He’s infiltrated the EDL, worked in every possible job you can imagine, has a partner/relative/friend who’s suffered domestic violence/illness/unemployment or even voted Tory. He’s been shafted by Conservative governments throughout his whole life and would no doubt be a multi-millionaire if it wasn’t for Margaret Thatcher personally shutting down every factory in Stoke, forcing OHG to pack his few belongings into a tiny rucksack and head off to Ireland, where he was equally unsuccessful.  His current “business ” was just about to take off after four years before it was cruelly emasculated by the Tories and their bedroom tax which, according to him, was going to cause riots across Britain.  It is suspected by many forumites that this “business” is simply a hobby for which OHG can claim in-work benefits and therefore avoid having to find a real job and/or sign on as unemployed where he’d be subject to DWP scrutiny.  He certainly spends significantly less time in his “workshop” than he does on DS.  Having hurled personal abuse at Conservatives for years (“the filth” etc) OHG has suddenly become sanctimonious now his beloved party leader is on the receiving end of similar criticism. He claims to be sitting back and enjoying the “desperation” of the right-wing media yet, as quick as a  flash, he’s in defending Milliband the moment The Leader gets any bad press.  OHG is a parody of the ageing Leftie, stuck in the 1970’s and fighting a class war the rest of the country left behind forty years ago.

There’s a long list so watch this space….

  1. I also love watching the antics of the DS extremists and scroungers! I think I sometimes spot you winding them up on there, and I am there pushing their buttons too! I see the Charcot Marie Tooth faker is claiming to have been placed in the Support group without a medical, and you must be flattered he honours you in his bizarre public pronouncements – you still wind him up from beyond the grave! CMT faker is either lying or he has succeeded in using the fraud techniques he so openly advertises on DS. Either way, hes fit enough to drive his tax payer funded Fiesta, play on his football computer games, and of course spend endless hours typing endless posts with his muscular atrophied fingers!

    1. I occasionally drop in but enjoy watching from afar. Judging how his posts receive very few responses other than from his scrounging chums I reckon most FM’s have him on ignore. His latest thread was a mega-fail!
      He’s an absolute car-crash of a poster and I love highlighting his lies and blustering rants. Most of it is just a figment of his warped imagination. He reads my blog every day and it dives him nuts. As for his belief in holding the high moral ground, ie complaining about a fellow poster using a mild swear word, let’s not forget this is from a man who advertised on a sleazy sex-site, pictured wearing only a towel! Every time I look at that photo I almost cry laughing.

      1. Sorry Ben/CurrySocks (I think you might be the same person), you are most certainly wrong, your royal family are scrounging vermin living in luxury at your expense. Good job the IRA knocked off that silly old fart Mountbatten, shame they didn’t get your queen. Never mind, better luck next time :)

      2. Is this the “compassion” benefit apologists are always talking about?
        Did you enjoy your Christmas dinner or are you still on “hunger strike.” :lol:

  2. You didn’t answer my question! What is your job? It’s ok for you not to work because your a tory supporter but heaven forbid if you have paid into the system thought National Insurance, heaven forbid for you were born with a disaibilty that effect your chance finding a job. Tories like you do not understand that they are more unemployed people than they are jobs. People with disabilities are more likey to face discrimination when finding work. Yes are law inplace to stop this but it happens alot and this may come as a shock to you but some disabled people cannot work! Why don’t you try helping them? Show some compassion! I don’t see why should I justify myself to little hilters like you. You don’t know what its like to live with Autism, depression and an anxiety disorder do you. You have no evidance or right to say that my condictions are fake. To be fair currySocks, I feel sorry for you. I feel so sorry for you that you have to bully the disabled people of this country because your life is so poor. I pitty you!

  3. You have very nice blog here. Only one thing what I noticed, it was very hard to find it from google (at least with my search term). You should try this: http://bit.ly/11UpQn2 It will get you better ranking in google. I use it all my wp blogs.If you have any problems to use it, just send me email and I try to help. If you dont have wp, check this out: http://bit.ly/13T2ILb

  4. I feel sorry for currysocks I hope in time he can become a better person and use his free time more productively rather than wasting his time trolling on the internet. He does not know what he is missing out on. I think that’s a crying shame.

    1. Trolling? Nobody asked you to visit my blog.
      The internet is a big place. Go somewhere else if you don’t like the truth.
      Highlighting the massive abuse of DLA/ESA is hardly an unproductive activity.
      It’s actually been very effective and satisfying.
      Myself, this blog and the many others who’ve stood up to the welfare bullies have played a small part in winning the argument.
      The polls reflect our opinions, the many people I talk to every day agree and the public are now aware of how widespread sickness benefit scrounging is.
      Every decent household has a neighbour who’s “to ill to work” but somehow manages to partake in activities only an able-bodied person could.
      The Scrounger hunting will intesify in 2014!

  5. I know the biggest scroungers of them all. Atos A4E and the rest of the private companies which the government are giving your money away. They give them bonuses for every person claiming sickness benefits they find reasons to take their support away when they have paid in for years and years, And A4E pretends to find people jobs but only pones them up for five minutes each week to check they have found a job yet, so they can claim it was down to them and claim £1000’s of pounds per person more if they are hard to place. The MP’s who in this government what have they achieved? apart from ruining vulnerable peoples lives? I work and even if I never need the money I put in, I hope it goes to someone who needs it whether they have the chance to pay in or not. There is a least a third of the population in Britain that wants their money to go on welfare. So they pay in with their money to vulnerable poor people, you pay your money to the MPs over inflated pay if you like and all those big companies with their hands out, not doing the work they are paid for if you like. Doesn’t matter how many sick people ATOS wrongly throws out because the courts will right their wrongs and guess whose paying for ATOS mistakes as well as their pay packets. YOU.

    1. More myths regurgitated.
      They’ve all be debunked, the Atos claims famously being shown as bogus in a Parliamentary Committee hearing as well as during questions in The House.
      Keep deluding yourself though, Conspiracy theories are hugely entertaining for the the majority of society who are rational in their thinking.

  6. Just keep telling yourself that, so innocent lives are ruined. There a benefit scroungers yes that is true there are thousands of them yes true again. But there are millions of genuine claimants taken off their support while the frauds are still there still on benefits no more have been caught out than before. Yes I think fraud should stop but surely there is abetter way than this. Protect those who are genuine and go after the fraud. What upsets me is that too many genuine people are suffering, all at the expense of saving money. That is the truth, it isn’t a conspiracy it’s real. But there are a lot of myths on your page that aren’t true like 95% of sickness benefits are fit for work, when the governments own statistics say there is only 0.5% benefits fraud. And maybe there are people on sickness benefits who could work if given the right support but they are just accessing them fit for work taking any income they have off them without helping them have the right things in place to help them find work and give them a chance to contribute like most of them are desperate to live lives as ordinary people. I comment on here because it is a place to have opinions just like you have your opinions, you think only people who have the right to same opinion here, without any form of challenge or discussion or debate, that it would remain one-sided without the other side ever being debated? I am passionate about this subject because I care what happens to other people whether they have done right or wrong in the past, I still care. Call me do gooder or what you like I care not but you think i’m delusional check your facts again and look in the mirror before you accuse me of being delusional again.

    1. I don’t think you’re delusional and agree with much of what you say although I believe the 0.5% figure is wildly inaccurate and the methodology used to arrive at it is laughable. DWP frontline staff can give a better estimate of the true figure. Go and ask some.
      Those abusing the system have caused a public backlash meaning the government can introduce measures that might impact on a minority of genuine claimants. These can be redressed on appeal.
      Like DS this isn’t a forum for differing opinions. There, a Walter Mitty- type welfare extremist and his cabal of multi-id lickspittles are given free rein to suppress any opposing views. Here, I at least allow people to post opposite opinions though I might re-consider this due to the amount of threats I receive.

  7. ha ha ha says the man who gets his facts from the daily mail and sun, Why don’t you quote your facts from a more credible source. Why are you so nasty towards the minority of scroungers anyway even if they do scrounge. why all the bitterness and the nastiness? Does it make you feel better, for a minute or an hour then you have to have another scrounger bashing to feel better again? it wont ever make you happy in the end.

    1. When you mean credible I’m sure you’re referring to the DWP’s figures for scroungers being found fit for work or the hundreds of thousands who miraculously recover the moment their assessment is due.

  8. Oh and your last comment has been copied and pasted from elsewhere, I have read it before. but the statistics about fraud being 0.5% are on the governments own website. If it is a myth you’d better correct them from your own sources, the mail the sun. Sure they would like to know.

    1. The DWP guesstimate the fraud level by looking at less than 2,000 claims, without even speaking to any of those claimants! They have a good idea of the REAL fraud level but daren’t reveal it because it would be a huge embarrassment as well as a national disgrace. The huge numbers being signed off ESA and soon DLA give you the real scrounging figures.

  9. And what is it you do all day? I know for a fact that all you do is sit in your house posting on internet forums all day trolling people who think you’re a fucking joke. You’re biggest the fucking hypocrite of the lot. You claim to hate scroungers, yet all you do is scrounge off the state to fund your lazy lifestyle.

    1. I work all day. Show me my all day internet posts. The only thing you’ve got right is that I hate scroungers – people like you who pretend to be ill/disabled in order to harvest benefits. What’s your illness? Bad back? So 1980’s! Could it be mental health? I know I’m right.
      When manufacturing and heavy industry were prevalent it was the difficult to diagnose the “bad back” scroungers used to avoid work. Now it’s mental health. Too depressed to work but not too depressed to spend all day posting on internet forums. That’s you, isn’t it? Your assessment is coming soon.

  10. Poor, poor windy. Forced to flee from bitchfest because I held a mirror up to his jew-hating face.

    He really needs help. One day, after years of therapy, he may realise that I am not currysocks and only trolled him to extinction because he falsely accused me of being currysocks.

    We have missed a trick here. Imagine us both posting at him on the same forum. He would end up going postal and shooting up a synagogue lol

    1. Poor,poor Windy/Fletch. He’s probably reduced to posting on an obscure forum where his abhorrent views won’t be challenged. Well done for pretending to me, you did a grand job. I’m looking out for Windy on DS and don’t think any of his ID’s have clashed with any of mine yet but it won’t be long before he reveals himself with some anti-Jewish rant.
      His ex-master, Legendary, sounds like some kind of creepy pervert from what I can gather.
      His DS master advertised on a sex, site dressed only in a towel, so it looks like Fletch is attracted to these types.
      Again, well done Clive.

      1. Looks like we spoke too soon. The hitler-loving inadequate is back on bitchfest, claiming that he has been touring the country working lol In reality, he probably had his cheap broadband connection cut off for non-payment of the bill.

        Legendary was summoned by Fletch to start posting on BF as back up. I was clearly too hot to handle.

        Talking of perverts, check this out:

        http://bitchfest.tv/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=12386&start=110#p334303

        Fletch casually mentions in conversation that he has been reading transcripts of teenagers on facebook. Dirty bastard. He always struck me as a groomer.

        Whenever I mention windwalker on DS,Fletch actually denies that it is him.

      2. There was obviously no internet connection in any of the places Windy was visiting. Loving his back-story as well, particularly the daughter he’s not mentioned before. Strange she’s suddenly appeared after I blogged how he’s never been married or had any children! He’s a complete fantasist, as his conspiracy drivel has shown. Fletch seems to gravitate towards seedy individuals like Legendary and Richievilla, who was caught advertising on a sleazy website wearing only a towel. Poor Windy is always someone’s lickspittle and I’m not surprised he came running back when summoned by his newest master. He can’t hide behind the moderator’s skirts like he used to on DS (until they turned against him because of his Jew-hating posts) and has a skin as thin as paper mache. He was getting really angry before his “holiday” and will do again with a little prodding. I see he’s still doing his zerohedge cut and paste then copying one of the comments from the article. He hasn’t a clue what the articles are about and nobody is really interested. House prices in Canada…….

  11. Did you see his hilarious attempt to prove that the Paris shootings were a false flag hoax? lol

    If I thought he was intelligent enough then I would suspect he is doing a parody of a conspiracy theorist, but he just actually is that dumb.

    Another one of his I liked was when he boasted that his meal for one wasn’t frozen. That passes for an achievement in fletch world.

    Have you got a link to this Richievilla sleaze page? I imagine it is deleted but surely you saved it somewhere.

    1. I haven’t seen it but can only imagine the drivel.
      I’m wondering how Windy/Fletch can explain his long term disappearance from DS. Has he been visiting his imaginary daughter for the last few months? How angry was he getting before his BF flounce? His latest forum master has been totally discredited but there’s nowhere for him to go as he’s been exposed on DS. I almost feel like registering on BF because he’ll absolutely shit himself when he can’t go running to the mods.

      1. Do it!!!!

        Register on bitchfest. He will be apoplectic with rage and confusion. He will demand the moderators check our IPs but they will obviously be different. We could send him completely over the edge.

    1. Poor Fletch, on his knees in front of the mods, begging for bans just like he used to do on DS. Even his cyberperv mate must be cringing with embarrassment.

      Happy birthday to Fletch’s “daughter”- 1 week old today.

      1. Looks like he has fled again. Hopefully it is for good this time.

        Daughter my fucking arse. Any kid would have disowned the hitler wannabe as soon as they reached 16.

        Why exactly was he banned on sleeping dogs? Was it for perving?

  12. Digital Spy is going to be a joy to read over the next few days. The conservatives are back in power and hero IDS can get on with forcing the bone-idle sickness scroungers to do some hard graft.

    The tears have started flowing already with many of the main malingerers on DS. They are whining about food banks and people killing themselves in despair.

    1. Old Scrounging Guy has gone into meltdown and the rest of the workshy scum aren’t far behind. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much. It’s the end of the scrounging world.

      1. I loved the tantrum they had outside downing street. Didn’t win an open election so decided to riot.

        Funny how the sick and disabled are suddenly able to have a ruck with police when the mood takes them.

        Fletch has vanished and not posted on BF since the exit poll was revealed lol

    1. He’s such a scrounging, lying twat and I don’t know how he’s never been banned. I hope he gets his welfare money stopped and is booted out onto the street along with his equally dopey missus.
      Him and Richiescroungervilla are the biggest liars on DS and I can’t wait for IDS to nail them.

      .

  13. I would suggest a life time achievement award is in order for doing fuck all during 60 or so years. He could even make a pot statue of himself, although I suspect the “workshop” does not get fired up all that often

    1. You’re right. He could make the statue in the shape of a huge dick as he is one himself.
      Is he ever in this workshop?
      I’m sure “the workshop” could be classed as a bedroom as there’s so little activity in there.

  14. Here’s Old Johntoe Guy panicking as he realises that his invisible disability of Meniere’s Disease could mean him losing his driving licence and hence his ability to ride his beloved Harley Davidson.

    http://www.mduk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=31871;area=showposts
    as soon as the odds stack against him.

    Life must be a be a bastard when you live in an oversized free house in a desirable village and the only thing you have to occupy your life is the DS Politics boreum.

The Facts

The man who broke the scroungers backs

Sick joke: Root out the scroungers

130,000 living on incapacity benefit for 10 years are declared fit for work

NEARLY 130,000 people on sick benefits for over ten years are fit to work, new figures show.

One in four ordered to get a job have pocketed state handouts unchecked for at least a decade.

The huge scale of welfare dependency was exposed during a mass reassessment of incapacity benefit claimants.

Ministers believe many became well enough to return to work months ago but went unchecked. But they fear large numbers could simply be workshy scroungers.

Some were claiming the cash for being overweight, suffering headaches or even acne.

Of 145,000 people found fit for work so far, 39,500 of them had been on the handout for over ten years. Nearly a third of them — 12,400 — had been on it for more than 15 years.

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/politics/4650931/Sick-joke-Nearly-130000-on-sick-benefit-for-over-10yrs-are-fit-to-work.html

A third of scroungers disappear

A third of all sickness benefit claimants appear to miraculously recover the moment they’re told their Atos medical is due?

Many had been drawing handouts for decades but stopped before their face-to-face assessment was due.

…more than a third of those given an appointment did not wait to find out if they were still eligible, official figures reveal.

Employment minister Mark Hoban last night ordered officials to probe why so many are dropping out.

We all know why they’re dropping out though don’t we?

………..scroungers!!

Grayling clears up some misconceptions:

it was the previous Government who introduced this system. .. the system that we inherited was not adequate. It did not do the job properly and in many cases led to wrong decisions about individuals. I and my colleagues in the Department for Work and Pensions have spent the past year trying to sort all that out..

it (Atos) was contracted originally by the previous Government. We have not sought to change the contracting arrangements because, frankly, it would be massively disruptive to do so in the middle of the process.

Let me be clear—Atos has no financial targets. A myth has been circulating for some time that our contractors are incentivised to find people fit for work. That is absolutely not the case and I am happy to put that on the record.

The second thing we did was to address the fact that people in between periods of chemotherapy could, theoretically, be found fit for work. We did not think that that was right and therefore we have excluded people who are in between courses of chemotherapy from any kind of return-to-work process, as well as those involved in chemotherapy at a particular moment in time. Again, that seemed the right thing to do.

Fundamentally, we are trying to help people with the potential to work to get into work and not end up spending the rest of their lives on benefits.

… if someone was a Paralympic athlete with a university degree, there was no obligation for them to look for a job. That is not right.

DLA facts;

DLA is the second most expensive working-age benefit, yet the allowance hasn’t been properly reviewed since its introduction in 1992.

• In the last 8 years the number of people on DLA has risen from 2.5 million to nearly 3.2 million.

• In 2010-11 the DWP expects the DLA total bill to be £12.1 billion0.9% of the UK’s GDP and the same as the Department of Transport’s entire budget for 2010-11.

• There are 140,000 people who have been on DLA since 1992 and have never had their claims reviewed. One fifth of those on DLA have had no contact with the department in the last 10 years and around 2 million people have been given indefinite awards. Too often people can get the benefit without a periodic review of whether they still need it or not.

Sheffield Hallam University incapacity benefit study;

those who claim incapacity benefits might be regarded as ‘hidden unemployed’ in the sense that they would probably have been in work in a genuinely fully employed economy.

a third of all claims by men in the survey had been for 10 years or more and a further fifth for between 5 and 10 years….after two years on Incapacity Benefit a person is more likely to retire or die than return to work.

The striking figure is the share of IB claimants that have no formal qualifications at all – two-thirds of all men and women.

only one-in-five say they ‘can’t do any work’.

the proportion of IB claimants saying they would like a job is very low indeed – just 15% of men and barely more women.

Hull_Incapacity_Claimants

He’s a guru for the welfare extremists but more careful reading of Professor Berthoud’s theories are quite revealing:

But the proportion of non-working disabled people who said they were permanently unable to work rose substantially between 1985 and 1996-97. There is a clear sign here of the growth of disability as an economic identity; the acceptance of “I am disabled” as an appropriate economic role by the disabled person, his or her personal community (family and friends), and perhaps the broader public community (including employers, doctors and benefit administrators). (Just as “I am a housewife” was accepted as an economic identity 30 years ago.)

On his disability graph:

There is no bulge in the distribution which could be used to argue that “most” disabled people are at the less-severe end of the spectrum; nor a bulge at the opposite end which would suggest that “most” of them are “incapable of work.”

Oh dear, oh dear…..

  1. My god you are a disgrace to the human race. Ok you silly cunt, listen to this loud and clear: you have to be medically assessed for DLA at regular intervals; I’ve been disabled for thirty years and I’ve faced assessments at least five times since first being awarded the allowance. I have cerebral palsy; a condition which great impairs my mobility, my balance, and my vision. The DWP don’t just hand it to you after answering a few questions, there is an A4 sized, 60+ page questionnaire a claimant must fill in each time they want to renew their DLA-there is no guarantee that they’ll get it either. But the doctors, nurses, specialists and therapists who are required to submit details when this application is submitted are far better qualified than the bigoted wankers that are in Government or are reading this now. God help you if you should get hit by a car, or face any kind of injury which leaves you impaired. Gobshite.

    1. Oh dear, here, ladies and gentleman, we have the ugly face of the welfare extremist. See how it rants, hurls abuse and refuses to engage in constructive debate. Is it any wonder they have lost the argument?
      One has to wonder how so many scroungers have been exposed as sucking on the DLA teat when it’s “so difficult” to claim.
      Enough money has been flushed down the welfare toilet so thank goodness IDS and Grayling are finally slamming down the lid on the benefit bog. Unfortunately, the stench of entitlement will probably linger for a while until Atos mop up the remainder of the excrement.

      1. If you are going to pose as an obnoxious little twat then I strongly suggest you at least do a modicum of proper research and quote the appropriate data and evidence. Oops…sorry, forgot; if you did that you’d undermine your entire hate-filled edifice of shite and it would come crashing down on your sorry empty head. My prescription for someone suffering from delusions of intelligence such as yourself, would be to go and read the evidence about what’s happening in the world around you; when you’ve crawled out, that is.

      2. Another welfare extremist (or multi-id) showing their true colours. Tut, tut! This blog is stuffed full of facts and figures which could educate you if you cared to read it. (if you can read that is) Perhaps you don’t really want to know the truth though. You’re obviously so desperate to keep your snout in the benefits trough you rant at anyone who dares point out the facts of ESA/DLA scrounging. As surveys show over 70% of the public support sickness benefit reforms (those of us who get out into the real world know lots of spongers) I predict you’ll be doing a lot more ranting in the future. My prescription for an intellectually challenged benefit addict such as yourself would be to stop dribbling, calm down and prepare for your forthcoming Atos assessment – 95% of which are independently audited as either a grade A or B. In the meantime ……..keep on scrounging!!

      3. Well currysocks, just goes to show how unsympathetic you are towards anyone that is not able bodied doesn’t it… I was on DLA from its inception in 1992 until I went to America to get married and was no longer entitled to it, during that 7 year period I was examined by a doctor EVERY SINGLE YEAR , I was examined twice a year two years running and one year I was examined FOUR times, that was the year I had my MRI and they were trying to figure out how I was still walking the condition my spine was in, I returned here in 2011 after my marriage broke up and was denied ESA and DLA because after a simple question and answer assessment with ZERO medical exams it was the “Opinion” opinion note of an unqualified person with no doctorates that in her opinion I was 100% fully able to work, her report was full of lies, half truths and left out ALL my medical records, I sincerely hope and pray that you never become disabled, with no other support than the National Insurance you paid into,. If in the vent you do, I hope you have a better result than the ones that are currently being denied and are dying as a result. I see you quote too the opinions of the Nasty Party rags, 70% this and 15% that, shall we see where over 60% of so called benefits go? Allow me to inform you of the Governments OWN true figures, 60% SENIOR Citizens, 5% DLA, hmm, weren’t expecting that were you? ACTUAL percentage of fraud… Not 8%, not 7%, not 5% not 4%,3%,2% not even 1% a mere 0.7% so go after the TRUE Scroungers 100% MP’s and Bureaucraps.

  2. The reasons DLA claimant numbers have increased.
    1) To start a claim for DLA you have to be below the age of retirement, but if claiming DLA when you reach retirement age, you continue to receive the benefit untill you die or your health improves. When the benefit was introduced no one over retirment age received it, now many do.
    2) Demographics we have a aging population, DLA is claimed mostly by older people as their health declines.
    3) Legal ruling on how the descriptors are interpreted has made those with mental health problems who require suppervision, encouragement, someone to keep them safe, etc… Eligible for longer. What has increased with mental health claimants is the length of the claims not the numbers of new claimants entering the system each year

    1. A constructive and reasoned reply without hyperbole, insults and threats.
      Like all blogs, this isn’t a debating forum but I’m happy to allow any input which opposes my opinion without using abusive language.
      People can then make up their own minds as to which side of the debate they’re on.

  3. You do know IDS claimed unemployment benifits after he left the army and has claimed child benifits for four of his kids, now he wants to limit child benifits to two children per family. David Cameron claimed DLA for his disabed son, yet he is a millionaire. You are being taken for a ride by a bunch of self indulgent hypocrites!

  4. Good evening currysocks. I hope my post finds you well and in good spirit, unfortunately I am neither well or of good spirit.

    My husband (who has never claimed benefits in his life, so a good egg according to you) attacked me with an axe, threatened to kill me and would not let me leave the house for nearly 3 days. As you can imagine this has left me injured and traumatised, the hardest thing to deal with has been the mental anguish and subsequent agoraphobia and panic attacks. I am 58 years old and until this happened had worked full time all my life.

    I recently attended an Atos medical accompanied by my friend (I still cannot go out alone) I explained what had happened to me and that I now suffered with agoraphobia, hardly ever went out and when I had to go out I needed someone with me. What did Atos put in my report? I can go anywhere on my own!! Nil points, fit for work.

    One other thing I want to say is who are all these people on benefits that you say are living lavish lifestyles? I get £99.15 a week, out of that I have to pay towards my rent and council tax and pay all other bills water, gas electric, telephone, contents and life insurance, food etc. I have 2 old cats (I got them as kittens years ago) so obviously have to pay for their food and vet bills. My soon to be ex is now in prison so it is my responsibility to pay off our joint credit card balance. All this out of £99 a week. I have no savings left I had to live of those before I could claim anything.

    So here I am nearly 60, ill,in pain, alone (apart from 2 cats) no savings,unable to go out and in debt. I AM on benefits but I am NOT a scrounger and I do NOT have a lavish lifestyle. My life is awful at the moment and websites like this make me feel suicidal, PLEASE do not tar us all with the same brush! Things are not as black and white as you seem to think they are.

    1. I am in both excellent health and spirit, thank you. Whether your story is true or not I don’t know. If it is then you should appeal the DWP decision. What I do observe is how you blame me, the messenger, for exposing the facts on sickness benefits and the way in which the system has been widely abused by a significant minority of claimants. Never have I claimed everyone in receipt of ESA/DLA is fraudulent and I challenge you to produce the evidence to back up your accusation I’m “tarring everyone with the same brush.” As for your “suicidal” feelings when exposed to sites that give you the FACTS, might I suggest this is just the same overblown, over-emotive hyperbole those without a counter-argument usually resort to. (see Digital Spy)

  5. The problem is that your information tells us nothing. It is nothing more than IDS propaganda with facts that have been fiddled about it and cannot except the fact the fraud is only 0.5%. Funny how you didn’t get back to me on what you do for a living, but is fine for you because you’re a tory.

  6. Thank you for your sensitive reply currysocks.

    I appreciate that you do not know if I am telling the truth, that could be said for all the facts and figures on here and most of the stuff on the internet though, could it not?

    I did challenge the decision and complained about the validity of the Atos report. The DWP overturned their initial decision after receiving a letter from Atos stating that the report was not fit for purpose. I was merely wishing to show you that the process is sometimes flawed.

    As regards blaming you for exposing the facts that people abuse the benefits system, I do not. I was aware that this happened long before I was aware of your existence (by the way did you mean to type significant majority, not minority?) I was merely trying to draw your attention to the fact that the language and general “tone” of this website could be upsetting to some genuine claimants. I also was not implying that you believed that everyone claiming benefits was a scrounger, although I must admit there is not much reference on here to genuine claimants!

    Regarding the comment I made about feeling suicidal, that was my fault, I meant to say more suicidal. The stuff on here alone is not important enough to make me feel that way, but after what has happened to me (yes, my story sadly is true) it could have tipped the balance? (Straw and camel’s back spring to mind) I did not make the comment about feeling suicidal in order to gain a reaction from you (no offence, but you are not that important to me). I feel suicidal sometimes because of what has happened to me and when I was feeling that way and I came accross this site I felt worse. I just wanted to make you aware of that, that’s all.

    Finally re “hyperbole” (you like that word don’t you?) “The use of exaggerations to make a point or create a strong impression.” May I direct you to the images and stories on here? Pigs at a trough, Snow White and the 7 scroungers etc etc etc, correct me if I am wrong but is not this whole site full to bursting with hyperbole?

    I agree with you that people who claim anything they are not entitled to need to be stopped and, where appropriate, fined and/or prosecuted. My original comment was just to say that this website could be offensive and upsetting to genuine claimants. I also believe that the people who are knowingly abusing the system, by their very nature, could not give a (insert expletive of choice) about what anybody on here thinks. Therefore the people that you are trying to shame? deride? (don’t really know what your aim is, sorry) will not be affected in the slightest.

    Having said all that ,of course you have the right to your opinions and the right to express them. Just as I have the right to comment on how, in my opinion, your opinions and, in particular, the way you have expressed them could have a negative impact on some genuine claimants.

  7. I live in an area where most people round about me are out of work, a great deal of them are on “the sick” and alot of them parade around in tax payer funded motability cars. NONE of them however (or very few indeed) are actually disabled in any way whatsoever, most of them are able bodied, active and have never worked for a living. There is a HUGE amount of benefit fraud in the UK and I would estimate it being larger than the 30% previously mentioned. I know a bloke who had an accident a few years ago that left him with a slight limp, but nothing major, he hasn’t worked for over 15 years now due to this minor injury that happened as many years ago, and lives on around £800 a month DISPOSABLE income, he literally has four times the disposable income I have (I work full time) and a totally stress-free life. He doesn’t want to find a job because he will end up broke and in debt like most people living on a low wage… shameful that the benefits system has made it more profitable NOT to work than to work…

    1. you know him personally or you have just watched him. You know he is on benefits how? And you can see x-rays in his leg can you? You can feel he is in no pain at all can you?
      How do you know, are the curtains drawn all morning or something?

  8. Where do you live, Steve? Here in London, the motability scheme (which gets the scooters and cars) is not tax funded, but charity run . I am perhaps one example of a disabled person who you’re (probably) directly demonizing, given that I am able bodied. I have, however, worked and I don’t have or need any motability support. After all, being autistic and having several anxiety disorders is not quite in the same category as having back injuries or arthritis of the knee (neither of which are visible, nor stop a person from being active for brief periods, but both of which are very much legitimate reasons to need motability support. Having taken less than 30 seconds to think of two such conditions, without being a medical professional, how many more might exist that laymen like me had never even heard of?). As such, I am more than willing and able to work, and this is reflected in the fact that I receive jobseekers allowance as opposed to any sickness benefit. I do, however, also receive DLA, which is around £150-£160 per month, due to the fact that, regardless whether I can work or not, I have disabilities that have a widespread negative impact on my ability to function, and thus have been LEGITIMATELY qualified by the DWP, through assessment and direct contact with the NHS staff working with my case.

    I can only cite my own case when referring to the inner workings of sickness and disability benefits, because I do not profess to be a spokesperson for anyone other than myself. However, I can also cite a fact from the government’s own research, which is the fact that only 0.7% of benefit claims are fraudulent . That is under 1/100th of the amount of people who receive benefits. I nearly said 1/100th of the unemployed, but that would be inaccurate, since many people who receive benefits are in work and have to claim means-tested benefits such as housing benefit in order to survive .

    I can, however, affirm absolutely that there are huge sums of money being paid in benefits to people who do not require any government assistance at all. In-work benefits may directly top up the earnings of people on low incomes who do need that money, but they are not truly the recipients. If a company does not wish to pay its employees a wage they can live on, they should either stop hiring or stop trading altogether. It is not the government’s responsibility to save money for business owners. It is the government’s responsibility to ensure a minimum level of basic human needs can be met in the country. This not only extends to the safety net of out-of-work benefits, but also adequate housing. By raising the minimum wage so that people receiving it have enough to live on, and by capping rent so that landlords cannot take more than their fair share, the government can ensure that they won’t have to pay benefits to people who are in work, and for those out of work, they can control how much is payable, instead of leaving that to landlords. These two measures alone will bring down the welfare bill substantially without forcing people to rely on food banks and charity just to get by in the 7th richest nation on the planet.

    But what do I know? I’m just an autistic, social phobic, obsessive, depressed and chronically anxious man. It’s not like I spend hours thinking about the same thing (usually how to improve the state of the country), with meticulous detail and having to research, re-research and verify everything I come up with before posting. It’s not like I’m sitting here citing articles and sources to back up my every point because although I have more important things to think about, I have to get this out the way first, even if it takes all week. But that’s exactly what I am, what I do, and what I’m doing here. Sadly, I am not an MP. Or maybe that’s a good thing, because I probably couldn’t run a surgery or deliver a speech considering I can’t even handle a phone call from my own mother if it’s not brief.

    I apologise immensely to the blogger for writing what has essentially become a blog post itself in the comments section on his/her blog, but I sincerely hope my remarks will be received in the same gracious spirit that I would happily forward to anyone wishing to reply. Neither I nor any of the other 99.7% non-fraudulent benefit claimants are your enemy. We are your neighbours, your friends, and your fellow citizens of the UK. We’re all in this together, after all. Let’s work together to stamp out corporate welfare, which is threatening us all, instead of attacking each other.

  9. websites like this are best ignored they are just internet trolls who have no caring and compassion towards their fellow man. and magnify a relatively small number of cases, to justify the treatment given to the vulnerable in this country weather they are ill and disabled or not.

    1. Love it! I think I’ll sign your petition myself just to bump your numbers up.
      Yet another futile attempt to close down my blog.
      Good luck in trying to curtail free speech.

  10. How much tax payers money are you receiving, to spout this venomous tirade on behalf of your government Mr C? You are so transparent.

    1. Not a penny. How much am I subsidising you a week to sit on your arse and spend all day on the net complaining how you’re to ill to work in a job where you sit on your arse all day?
      Scrounger!

  11. Words cannot convey the contempt I feel as a disabled 45 year old man who served his country for 12 years then a further ten years as a consultant before becoming chronically ill at forty five. I paid income tax and National Insurance and in return get called a scrounger and parasite. Shame on the authors of this site.

  12. Hey, currysocks, you’re so right. Loads of those on benefits are scroungers. I know this for a fact because after I lost my job through my DLA claim being ended, it only took a couple of years for my arms and legs to grow back, and I now have a job that pays less than being on ESA and DLA because I don’t work the minimum 24 hours a week it takes to be eligible for tax credits benefits (zero hour contract plus not getting called in enough).

      1. Will your brain ever grow back, you lazy bastard?
        Asks the woman whose head is like an echo chamber for ConDem policies.
        You don’t have a job.
        That’s because I’m expected to do nothing but look for jobs all day, whether they exist or not. I actually found paid work by myself the other month, but couldn’t go to the interview because JC+ insisted on me attending at risk of a six month sanction, something I couldn’t afford if the job fell through. I then found the zero hour non-job I currently have on Universal JobSnatch.

  13. DLA is the second most expensive working-age benefit…
    If that’s true, then why did the ConDems choose to deny people tax credits instead of DLA? Methinks our unelected ‘government’ put the lie to their own words (scare quotes for the fact that they couldn’t govern a piss up in a brewery).

      1. Not really. When I was unemployed, I had no money to get pissed on, bills and food were more important, and even though I now have money sometimes, I daren’t get pissed in case I get called in to work.

One thought on “The best scrounging articles

  1. Come back when you have a disease and then pushed to work in constant pain, until that day, this is uneducated tabloid propaganda and says more about you than it does of your ‘scroungers’.
