I live with family. And the computer I own was £50, nearly ten years old. I don't have money for a new system.
I know about welfare claiming, I live in a social home, and my family members are recently employed. I have had some employment, not much. So i have the experience of knowing what it is like to be uneducated, I left school with poor grades, and didn't succeed at the college I went to. Depending on personality, and education, if you can't succeed, you can only do what is available.
The attitude on here is that I can be an investment banker, which I can't or work in a bank.
On this board I once read about a post of someone asking for food, it was sad, I appreciate the fact that a welfare system exists, had one existed for that individual on here, they wouldn't of needed to ask on a forum for food.
I know socialism has had a bad track record. And yes life choices can matter, last year I had spoke to somebody at a benefit office, a lady who had been employed and unemployed, she wanted to get a council flat as I mentioned I lived in one. I have lived in one since I turned twenty five due to overcrowding as I shared a room with my brother more than three years ago, and bidding for a property was what got us a permanent social home, obviously it isn't free, there is a cheaper rent than private rent, council tax, and anyone needs repairing, the council send a private company to repair anything or check the boiler, electric meter, usually once a year.
