      Lost my job after 30 years, at 63 prospects bleak in finding alternative employment.

      Sorry to hear that mate, and at 63, its not all grim! My bosses are 67 and 73 year old and stronger than anyone I know and very much in control! As long as you have something to give, there are companies out there who will happily take you, especially those with a wealth of experience. Have a couple of weeks holiday, then get back out there!

      New experiences and all could be just what you need.

      Sorry to hear but have a little break then get yourself back on the horse.  63's no age these days.  You're probably 10 times more useful than a 33 year old and 100 times more than a 23 year old!

      F***ing council are full of jokers, useless bunch.

      Get a letter saying 'you owe us x amount' think hmm that's strange I have a direct debit with them were they take what they need. Rang them up and get a sh*t robot service. I give my details and get told they will call me back. Anyway no call comes so I think that's the end of it. Today a letter from debt collectors come through saying I owe them even more now. They are still taking money from me on direct debit however. I try to contact the debt people, they're closed. I ring the council, go through the shitty automated service again, can't get speaking to a real person. I get told to go to the website and email the council tax branch. I go to the website and is there an email listed for council tax? Of course not.

      I'm literally trying to pay them if I owe them and cannot get speaking to a human to do so. Could go into their office and speak to them... but they close at 4 on weekdays. I feel sorry for the person I get hold of eventually.

      Only thing they can do is hand out benefits, who cares about the people that actually work for them! That's the worst part, they employ me and I still can't get hold of anyone

      That's the council for you. There used to be 2 street lights near my house, 1 of them broke and instead of fixing it they just took the f**ker down so whenever I walk up or down my street at night you're lucky to see much until you get to the top of the hill. The council don't seem to want to know though.

      Bare with me here.

      I was on my phone sending a message and then when I was done I still had it in one hand. Anyway, about 30 seconds later I went to pick my phone up, thinking it was next me. Now, I was sat on the bed when this was happening like. I couldn't see my phone next to me or around me so I started moving the pillows, the cover, the laptop and generally everything that was on the bed, looked on the floor and was starting to think along the lines of "what the f**k?!". Anyway, then I suddenly realised, I still had the phone in my hand.

      Does it really piss anyone else off when this kind of thing happens to them or is it just me? It's like, come on man!!

      So... I got talking to a Slovakian lad in my Doctor's waiting room yesterday. Nice, honest lad but he told me a story [about how much he loved my town] which scared and angered the b'jaysus out of me.

      'Peter' was telling me that he had two kids back home, one of which had autism.

      He had been paid off here but he lived "rent free, thanks to housing benefit". He claimed and sent back, to Slovakia, 'working tax credits' (because he was on job seekers allowance), for his two kids, which came in at just under £12k, thanks to £8k, per annum, for the autistic girl. He did, of course, get Child Benefit £1.6k, for the two on top. Furthermore he was in the process of trying to "win a (DLA) PIPS claim for his daughter".

      Nice to know my £118 weekly tax payment is keeping so many happy in so many ways. 👍😊

      Sounds similar to the welfare benefits so many in the US “enjoy”. Mind you not all leach the system but a fair number do. Of course merely pointing that out would have me branded a heartless, money grubbing conservative ;)

      I don’t mind a bit helping people that want to help themselves and make a contribution.

      The harder you work and the more you put into a very unfair system, the more you will find, you will be ripped off. Which is extremely unfair.

      I do NOT, in any shape or form, mind paying for anyone who has, like me (and my parents before me/them) paid into the system. That's what its there for.

      Sh*t; I don't even mind folk playing the system and making a few quid extra [I blame the game, not the player]. But...

      I DO resent my tax money being moved out of the country. Therein lies the rub: 'Peter' sends his tax credits, DLA and family allowence back to his wife and kids in Slovakia. It boosts their economy not mine.

      Before yesterday I had put such stories down to scaremongering and I was blissfully unaware of the truth but I heard it from the horse's mouth and it's f**king aggravating.  😕

      Same thing happens here on a large scale. Mexican (and other Hispanic) immigrants come over the border, some collect benefits some work to collect money under the table and then send it back to their families over the border. All the while they don’t pay any taxes on the money and yet they use (and abuse) taxpayer funded provisions like emergency medical services, schooling, free lunch programs, highways, etc.....

      That’s why I’m in favor of scrapping our current tax system in favor of a national sales tax. That way everyone buying goods or services in this country will pay taxes, there’s no way around it.  Not only that, but the folks that spend the most money (the rich) would ultimately pay the most taxes.

      I think you’ve missed the point.

      He hasn’t failed to recognise the fella’s attributes - he’s questioning the system that allows something so flagrantly contra and damaging to its very intent.
