Hard-up should count their blessings

Have your say

Mr Blunkett and the do-gooders simply depress the poor, telling them how badly done to they are, instead of making them count their blessings they live in this great country.

There is no poverty in this country (unless homeless).

Sharon was on roughly £200 a week with two children to care for. Wow!

My father died at 34 and left mum with five children.

There were no handouts except free dinner tickets. We never got Christmas presents andnever had a holiday until I got married, but we had a wonderful mum and I think I’m a better person.

Today a lot seem to dine at McDonalds or eat takeaways and most seem to feed their animals but not their kids. Hard up, but not in poverty.
