£238 a week is a very large amount of money to receive! My husband is registered as unable to work due to mental health problems amongst various other health issues. We have 2 young children and I am unable to work due to caring for him and we don't even receive the £150 a week that this woman is grumbling about!
I also know my husband's NINO off by heart and rely heavily on the support we receive but that isn't any justifcation to not be very grateful for the help we do get.
And let's not forget that on that high of a rate of benefits, housing benefit, council tax benefit etc will probably boost their weekly income by a further £200 a week as well.
I consider myself very lucky to be able to get the help we do get because without it, we wouldn't be able to provide for our children. I can't drive and live in a very rural area - my husband's mental health would not see him do very well living back in a busy area so we have no choice but to live here.
People should really start considering the possibility of being grateful for getting help when it is needed - many more people are suffering worse incomes and they work their bums off doing 2 jobs to make ends meet
( I am not in any way saying this lady doesn't suffer with her illnesses before anyone suggests I am heartless btw - I am very sympathetic towards her but feel they should consider themselves lucky to not be in the position of having their monies stopped all together like many thousands of people have had over the Christmas period including housing costs etc ) xx
