        so its a question they expect to be asked with the responses below.
        "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

          Meanwhile the title of this thread is a quote from a document of Jeremy Hunt's.

          yes explaining that we have 'lazy brits not willing to work' is a lie. A response to Chimpmaster's quoted post.

            Sheesh calm down man.

            It's not a lie BTW. There are scores of lazy Brits unwilling to work because they are too used to social welfare. Stop the welfare payments and there will be riots, due to these lazy Brits losing their "entitlement" to free Monday. It's not like they will think 'oh look, we have no free money now, let's go and get a job instead and contribute to society'.

              as per the Guardian analysis there are actually very few and most of them are in isolated pockets.

              If you have followed my posts over the years I am a strong supporter of workfare & linking benefits to work which has been extremely effective in pushing many shirkers into employment. No riots needed.

              I believe sanctions are a good move but evidence suggests that they are badly applied.

              If wages rise, benefits adjust to encourage seasonal work and benefit eligibility falls then very few lazy brits will remain and most of those should be in prison or drug rehab.

              I also suspect there is a widescale abuse of benefits with people claiming while working.

                Tell me about it. Still getting the child benefits despite being resident in another country.

                  It must be completely obvious to anyone looking at the photo above that this is a deliberate leak.

                  Maybe they feel it will be more convincing if it appears to be an accidental revelation of some secret discussions rather than a direct public statement. But then why bother with the charade when everyone knows it was accidental on purpose? Pathetic.

                  Or maybe this guy isn't flashing documents on behalf of the cabinet but is off the reservation and publicly signaling his dissent.

                    aye ken. Perhaps its a double bluff. Anything to get the chattering classes working overtime so that they might forget the doom for a minute.

                      His main reason was that he want's to keep EU citizenship.
