Benefits views touched nerve
IT looks like my letter on the subject of the work shy claming benefits has ruffled the feathers of one of your regular letter writers, Mr Paul Hallam.
He seems to have cherry picked parts of my original letter to suit his own agenda, but then again I did end my letter saying no doubt any attack on the benefit system will be met by opposition from Labour supporters or apologists, so Mr Hallam, which do you fall under?
Mr Hallam then thinks that I assume most people on benefits are cider drinkers, and that only several hundred thousand are out of work instead of millions.
Wow, talk about massage the figures, but hey, let's not let facts get in the way here.

You then assume I expect my friend should get the red carpet because he can no longer work, and that I'm quick to spout my petty bile to the public about the scroungers who milk this country.
You then assume I'm upset because my friend can't join them.
Well Mr Hallam, I will once again stand by my letter that there is a hell of a lot of deadwood out there who do not want to work, even if you gave it to them on a platter.
A lot of people with a genuine illness or disability are facing cuts in their benefits and these are the people I speak up for.
You call it petty bile, I call it sticking up for the people who really need help.
If that way of thinking upsets you Mr Hallam, I won't be losing any sleep over it.
