I know we all laugh at the prophecies of the ’ End of the world is nigh ’ but with all the disasters around the world lately it makes one wonder . However one lovely bit of news on television tonight was that a 2 week old baby had been found alive in the rubble of the Turkey earthquake

Oi when I read that on the 31st October there will be 7-billion people on this earth, in 3years time there will be 8-billion - currently 15 percent overpopulated…makes me wonder about all these disasters!!!!!

That was uplifting and subsequently the mum and grand-mother too.

I’m not sure how it works in other countries, but over here so many people sponge off the government and it’s getting out of hand. A lot of younger people have already had children and a lot of them have more than one.. even two! They’re claiming every thing they can get their hands on which means none of them go to work. It’s become a trend now, to have kids as young as possible because it means you’re handed money on a plate.

What I think they’re doing now, is stopping/lowering child benefits and possibly others too, if you refuse to work for over 3 months which I think’s a great idea. It’s about they starting contributing rather than being given the hard-working tax payers money. I reckon it’s going to make people see that it’s not so easy after all. Fingers crossed anyway.. I don’t wanna sink!

Here in S.A. the benefits are limited…..  can only claim 4 months maternity. Unemployment you can claim 34 weeks during which period the government will try and line up some job aps.
