I have been wondering if anyone here actually knows any "scroungers". I don't, though I have had problems with tradesmen who, when asked for a receipt, say: "I can give you one if you like, but then I'd have to charge you VAT". By implication, they must have a sizeable business to have to make a VAT return (AIUI), so they are part of the black economy.
Cameron/Osbourne are using the alleged "extravagance" of the last government to make the kind of cuts they were going to make anyway. You can't go on paying invalidity benefit and at the same time restrict the poor CEO's bonus increases to only 17%, and their pay increases to 7%.
That's only double the inflation rate, poor devils...
