    Default Common Sense at last

    At long last someone has had an idea containing some commonsense
    The new social services card will now contain a picture of the recipient
    Well at least that will cut out the loophole of other people collecting ure money
    or collecting in more than one place.
    Surprise surprise civil liberty groups think tis a bad idea
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
    but

    True but the whole prob here now is a that nobody listens to the government bodies anymore because they see all these expense scandals. Its a sensible idea coming from immoral ppl.

    To be fair from what i heard you have to sign your name on a docket and they sometimes look for photo id...if you sign the docket you could be in for fraud,i doubt most ppl would take the risk but then again some might do it.

    Its rife particularly among immigrants, they go home and give the card to someone to collect the money for them
    also the travellers are notorious for drawing at several places using their transience as a loophole

    Actually a new initiative from the social welfare is being brought in where the person claiming social is given a docket every month with a time and date on it anf the reciever must go to their local office to sign on if they aren't there at the specified time they lose their benefits...this replaces the old format where they got the sign on form once a month and all they had to do was throw it in the door...this will stop ppl abusing the system.

    There were loads caught over the volcanic ash. They couldnt come over to sign and all arrived back around the same time.
