      Just seen this shared by a friend of mine on Facebook. I personally think it is a disgrace.

      What are your thoughts?

      well to be fair asylum seekers come over to the UK they get a house that is way to big for them they get every benefit you can think of and an old mate of mine used to work for a company that used to install kitchen stuff like washers and cookers into there houses for free even though the appliances are worth like 300 quid each

      If we are ever going to have a peaceable society then stirring up racial hatred - by anybody - is no answer.

      we will never have a peacefull society if immigrants are getting treated better,
      dont you think we should be annoyed when they come up with things like bedroom tax etc

      I'll stand by what I've said - targetting the people themselves will achieve nothing but discord.
      However I will quite agree that as a crowded country, immigration does need to be strictly controlled - indeed far better than it has been at times.
      Rather than a photo depicting an Indian family, there is potentially more of a problem posed by the imminent influx of large numbers from the newer EU countries in Eastern Europe.

      As for something like bedroom tax,to my mind that is a completely separate arguement. It happens that my wife is a disabled person and I could write a whole page about some of the injustices of the benefeit system!

      Ian that bedroom tax thing is one joke, it don't apply to me because i already pay rent..just short of
      £70 a wk because ALL 3 people in my house work...they want the money to build a house
      fur some loser of a woman with 11 kids..who surprise, surprise does not work...somewhere
      in England i think.

      I am so sick of people breeding lots of kids ,living it up while others have to pay for them

      they are reviewing it, like dianes parents both now nearly 60 dont share a room, but they are classed as partners so it says they will have a spare room, its crazy stuff
      i dont agree with 1 person living in a 4 bed house, but they should be given a think they call it a clearance key, where they can move where they like to a 1 bed property
