When will the I.R.A. pay Compensation to their Innocent Victims or Relatives.

What do they do with their benefits?
Surely they receive money from the government (ie the taxpayers amongst us).
Fags, booze and the latest must have phone/tv/sky package.
Too many kids that the rest of us have to support.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.

Whilst I have no doubt there are those out there in genuine need and for whom places like this and food banks must be a Godsend, Iím inclined to agree with the fags , booze and latest must haves  analogy . It would be interesting to see what kind of mobile device the mother of eight has in her pocket and if she also has cigarettes, Iím also betting she has a tv in her house as well . As for those who take drugs and then expect everyone to help them out , donít start me.

Another thing that always puzzles me is why do those who can least afford to or are the most ill equipped to , keep on having babies ? Contraception is free !

The courageous deeds and sacrifices of the RUC and UDR must never be airbrushed from history .

    But, it's not Politically Correct to mention that ( accordion to certain people )       :whistle:

Yes indeed. People need to get their priorities right. No one in the U.K. will starve.....FACT.    People need to consider seriously what size of a family they can afford, not what size of a family they want. These people need to budget better with their benefits and use them for what they are intended to be used for. :)
