Drives me mad to be honest. I recently sold a mare to a family - they have a disabled child and the mother is his carer. Dad doesn't work either and they have 3 further children. They now have 3 horses and are basically supported in full by the state - WTF??? I know of several single parents who are able to finance at least one horse, dealing horses, breeding rubbish and giving lessons on the side. They post on FB about their plans for breeding yet more rubbish and spending the Community Care Grants issued by the Job Centre to furnish their houses. I must be going wrong somewhere.
My friends Julie's neighbour has a fear of open spaces yeah right she has 3 small children under the age of 10 but get this - goes out every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night leaves the kids home alone, comes home p***ed out of her treeand usually not alone. The kids are dirty scruffy, hungry they have to feed themselves dress themselves and when social services come to visit her omg she lays it on so thick she nearly had my mate in tears my mate had enough and reported her the kids now have a new home all together, they are clean, well fed, want for nothing and most importanly are loved they are doing better in school and are happy and there mother she did a runner since then Julie found out she was getting over £600 a week plus her rent paid and disability and child benefit totally approx £1000 a week and there are us mugs paying for it I cant afford to take a day off as I dont get paid for it being self employed it really p*sses me off.
This does make me really cross, I have had a double transplant and then a riding acident which resulted in my leg being amputated above the knee, along with other health problems and I struggle to get anything, last year I lost my money because they said I was not disabled enough. I do have a horse and I struggle to keep her as without her I would have just given up and wanted to die after everything that happened to me. I go with out all sorts of things so that Ebony gets all that she requires, as its not her fault that I am unable to work any more, so you and every tax payer on here has every right to be cross, I hate having to claim money after working all my life it still comes very hard having to ask for help.
I have a mother who is basically losing her memory ( its heartbreaking trust me) she worked till she was 73 paying tax on her small tiny pension- can we get a help to go in once a day - feck no as i live in a reasonable distance 60 fecking miles away and i phone her twice a day go over taking her shopping cut grass trim hedge etc but to ask for someone to visit once a day to just make sure she ok oh feck that - but it seems others get it all - thats why im fecking annoyed - she as worked far beyond what should have done and gets feck feck feck all and no not passing off my duty as a daughter to the best mum you could have had please please goverment sort it
My mum has just come out of hospital after 6 weeks, and 3 ops and still can't find what's wrong...well they think they know but can't locate ( fistula on spine, fecked up her mobility ) so she's been reffered to a specialist in London. She's been getting worse for 6-7 years, our gp said it was arthritus so she was taking meds for that. She can't walk as her right leg doesn't work, her hands have no feeling but can she get help? NO! Basic disability benefit, no home help nothing as she's not entitled. She can't even do buttons on clothes up. It really makes me rage, she worked all her life till her brain hemorhhage and for what?!
