Re: Angry mobs...

Baldowrie, I'm not sure why you appear to feel this is some sort of personal attack.

Re: Angry mobs...

you would think so wouldn't you, but it's income support receivers they want. Yes there are some that shouldn't be getting and getting off their back sides, but they are too hard to chase! I am unable to work due to my disability and my sons disability and his inability, or is the school inability? ...

Re: Angry mobs...

One of the things regarding this that has come up is the single parents, and it's not just mothers, who home educated for various reasons including that they have disabled child/children will also be penalised under this new system.
