UKIP Hate the Unemployed.
Hates the Out-of-work.
For a party so concerned about jobs and unemployment in the UK this is the attitude of their party towards the out-of-work ( April 2014 )is worth a look. (link).
After Scrapbook exposed sick comments from a UKIP councillor on banning unemployed people from voting, the party’s most high-profile new recruit has rushed to his defence, claiming Cllr Tom Bursnall “has a point”, going on to say it is “dangerous” to let unemployed people vote.
Having defected from the Tories, 23 year-old Alexandra Swann was the star turn at UKIP’s recent conference in Skegness — with party leader Nigel Farage proudly declaring that “the Swann has migrated”.
But appearing to agree with Cllr Bursnall, who as the former chair of Conservative Future is also a defector from the Tories to UKIP, she continued:
“allowing people to vote on how other people’s money is spent — if they dont contribute — is dangerous”
With these views we are unnsurprised to learn that Swann idolises anarcho-Libertarian philosophers and is completing a PhD in social Darwinism.
And this Guardian (March 2013)
Some long-term benefit claimants would be banned from using their benefit cash to buy cigarettes, alcohol or satellite TV subscriptions under proposals due to be presented at the UK Independence party’s spring conference on Saturday.
In the same year UKIP described the unemployed as a ” “a parasitic underclass of scroungers”.
UKIP’s welfare policies include forced unpaid work for all Housing and Council Tax Benefit claimants, Incapacity Benefit (now ESA) slashed to Job Seeker’s Allowance rates and childcare support for working parents demolished.
To add to this UKIP Welfare Policy is also
• Non means-tested “basic cash benefit” for low earners and unemployed. Jobseekers allowance andincapacity benefit is scrapped.
• Child benefit for the first three children only.
• No benefits for anyone who has not lived in the UK for five years.
For the 2014 elections (UKIP site) these policies stand unchanged :
• Enrol unemployed welfare claimants onto community schemes or retraining workfare programmes.
That is, unpaid workfare.
• Make welfare a safety net for the needy, not a bed for the lazy. Benefits only available to those who have lived here for over 5 years.
That is, yet more scapegoating of the out-of-work – and ‘foreigners’.
To phrase a coin UKIP are bleeding filth.
