Lazy, greedy, scroungers
Can't afford to eat healthy, yet he spends a fiver on a burger. Lazy, idle ars#hole! Another woman 30 stone and out of breath after half an hour riding on her scooter. Feed them to the cannibals at Christmas.

it's always 'not fair'
Government only have money provided by taxpayers. I would ask of claimants who say that government should give them more - How much of what I work hard for should I give to you to make it fair ?

lazy.
What an idle git Rob is. Sitting on his fat ar#e all day playing computer games. You would have thought that he had won the lottery, the way he waved the doctors note about. On second thoughts, he had.

Poor pet care
The couple who own the bearded dragon, you have no basking spot, probably not even a heat mat for that poor beardie no wonder he looks so lethargic. He also needs a source of nutrobol and calcium dust. Thing that shocked me the most was the fact you said quote "he is due to be fed on Friday, yeah he'll get his mealworms Friday" first of all, bearded dragons need a source of veg daily, especially adult beardies. And also they need to be fed HOPPERS daily, and mealworms as a treat as they are very fatty. If you don't know how to look after pets, don't have them. ?? Also I agree with a previous comment about the dog.

TOSH!
Not factual and grossly inaccurately reported! The woman for example who stated she is on £1400 per month disability - that is simply not possible! The programme paints an unfair representation of people who are forced to live on disability benefits / PIP etc due to no fault of their own and who depend on it. I am referring to the real people in the world who actually need these things. I speak from experience in my own family. The program makers should be taken to task - it is discriminatory.

On Benefits: On the Breadline The documentary series focuses on welfare recipients from the Merseyside area, including New Brighton man Jimmy, who struggles to find work as his religious beliefs prevent him from working on a Sunday, and Birkenhead single mum Nicola, who has become an expert bargain hunter to help stretch her benefits. Wallasey man Joe has a number of serious health conditions and hasn't had a shower at home in three years. However, after three years on the waiting list, a move to a specially adapted bungalow is finally on the cards
