    Whilst hoping fervently that Bozo Bunter the fat owl of the remove comes to a satisfyingly grim end.

    You'll have to try and explain that better. Bit of a non sequitur. Why would my parents explain Scooby's bias?

    I was talking about the current individual who is Labour's deputy.

    indeed there are some people who are with the program. some aren't, 1.6 million on furlough and no retraining.

    The Conservatives want to fix it by encouraging people out of poverty Labour want to subsidise it.

    Hard work and attitude goes a long way to getting people out of poverty. Plenty of hard working miners with no jobs, but their peers got on their bike and worked round the world. Pretty sure most of them didn't have a silver spoon, my Yorkshire manager 25 years ago never claimed to be a duke!
    I don't know why, but comments like this always make me see an ignorance for the fact that LUCK has a lot to do with life. Where you are born, who to and with what health conditions. hard work and attitude can go a long way - but not necessarily enough in a lot of situations.

    I see it as a deep rooted belief that everyone's born with equal opportunity and if people fail or cannot succeed, its down to a lack of effort.

    Nearly 18% of universal credit recipients, that some love so much to demonise, are disabled and totally unable to work. 14.1 million people living with a disability in this country, 4.4 are in work, 8 are totally unable to - and the juries out on the other.

    Now you try "working hard" when under Universal credit on those terms - and see how far it gets you. That's just 1 example , children in abusive households are very common.
