I pretty much never reblog other people’s posts because… well… I’m not that keen when my favourite bloggers do it, if I’m honest. But this is excellent.
In my new job I work regularly with young people who are struggling financially, and am regularly struck by the fact that so very few of them are at all like the benefit-scrounging-scum we hear about on a regular basis. Many of the young mums I work with have partners who are in employment or are in employment themselves that is so badly paid they still have to go to food banks at the end of the month and often apply for special grants/help in order to replace a cooker or fridge. This post about the benefit system started ‘going viral’ (I’m so modern) on Facebook, and what I particularly like about this version of it is that he has checked all his facts and referenced things. THIS is how to make a point. UK Media, please listen to Jon Leighton.
