Abuseing the system
This is a absolute joke claiming benefits while driving a new Aldi convertible and having abroad holidays and having hair luxuries !! People that work very hard to pay bills bills it's a mockery of what the benifit system is for. ??

Comments about the goverment giving people on benefits their rent money to pay themselfs is spot on. The torie goverment are setting us up. People will becone homeless at a higher rate than ever in history. Its simple tories take off the poor and give to the rich, labour take off the rich and give to the poor. It a no brainer so why is england in this situation.

On Benefits: Life on the Dole The documentary focuses on people living on state welfare in Portsmouth. Chris says he is looking for work, but that there are more shops closing down than opening up, while Carly and Drew spend their time playing darts, shopping and looking after their children, but they long for a better future. Barbara has a foot injury and is stuck between two benefit categories, meaning she has no money to live on, and Robert works as a part-time cleaner, but is stressed by the pressure the job centre is putting on him and the amount of rejection he faces as he searches for more work
