WHILE DREW IS, “STILL WORKING,” SOME FOLKS ARE HAVING A GREAT TIME HERE ..

Well first of all there’s a headline in the paper today on page 6 of The Telegraph except heaven forbid they (Telegraph) make it easy to find on line.

Anyway it says the following.

MOTHERS ON BENEFIT ‘BETTER OFF’ THAN WORKING WOMEN

So is anyone surprised? See if Drew were a female with lottsa kids or an airplane hijacker or a member of the ROP who couldn’t be deported, he could be here collecting benefits from wealthy comrade taxpayer thank you native citizens, instead of cleaning windows of capitalist landowner with big house and barn.  See how easy that is?  Works for some.  Of course, the Brits are pretty well pissed off about it all but there isn’t an election scheduled for another year I believe.  And Mr. Brown sure as heck ain’t gonna call one.  Hey ... if he didn’t call one when his ratings were okay, he sure as heck is NOT gonna call one now.  And if anyone thinks the Conservatives here will be much better, well ,,,, I’m not so sure about that either.

Some editorialist or finance guy recently wrote that this place is going to the dogs, (italics mine) and to get out if you can while you can.

Then there’s another story from The Mail about a pretty lady with 6 kiddies and maybe three dads who never knew she was was not taking ‘The Pill’ because she wanted kids, kids and more kids.  She loves em and wants em but the article didn’t tell me whose paying for it all.
Right now she’s living with a lawyer and so maybe she isn’t collecting any benefits. ??  The fathers she says were indeed tricked but hey ...
“It’s my body so I don’t feel bad” she says.  “I thought it would be a challenge.”

Great role model for those little girls she has.  She says that when they’re old enough, she’ll tell em that she loved and wanted them so much that she lied to their dads just to have em.  Some logic that is but I guess so far it works for her.  But I do feel sorry for those adorable little girls.  When they’re older they will ask questions.  And they may not be happy with her answers.

But back to Drew and still working.  Poor Drew.  Can’t be fun in this weather.  BUT ... well now if he were a crinimal ( I spelled it the way I wanted it to sound) and living here, he might have benefits as well. 

Prisoners paid £5m compensation for early release
Criminals released early from prison under a scheme to end overcrowding have been paid more than £5 million in compensation, official figures show.

The payouts are intended to reimburse convicts for the cost of food and accommodation that would have been provided by the state if they had stayed in prison.

The Government introduced the controversial payments in June 2007 when it launched the End of Custody Licence (ECL), under which prisoners serving short terms are released nearly three weeks early to free up cells.

Offenders – including some convicted of violent crimes – are entitled to around £7 a day plus a one-off payment of £46, as they are not allowed to claim state benefits for the duration of their licence period.

Figures released by Jack Straw, the Home Secretary, after demands from the Tories showed that prison governors had paid out £2.27 million and the Department for Work of Pensions £3.11 million under the scheme.

With the £429,000 spent on administering the initiative, taxpayers have paid out close to £6 million to compensate criminals for letting them out of prison early.

The 49,800 inmates who have already benefited from the scheme have committed nearly 1,000 crimes while on ECL release, according to Government statistics.

Dominic Grieve, the shadow justice secretary, condemned the payments, saying that the money would be better spent on prisoner rehabilitation.

“Hard-pressed taxpayers will be flabbergasted to learn they are compensating prisoners for being released early – it just adds insult to injury,” he said. “Money that could have been spent holding and rehabilitating prisoners is being spend on releasing them to re offend.

Figures obtained last December showed that foreign prisoners have received more than £369,455 under the early release programme.

The Government said that the scheme was a temporary measure to ease overcrowding and said that only prisoners with personal savings less than £500 received the payments.

David Hanson, the justice minister, said: “We will end ECL when there is sufficient prison capacity to do so.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
