I would be the first one to claim that our welfare state is not what it should be, but I would think in a lot of the cases reported here there underlying social problems than rather just lack of funds. Though I would also be the first one to say "not all". What we need is for some of these people to be educated that there is no need for poverty and there is always help available for the genuine cases. I'm not talking about those who get their wages or benefit and spend it on booze,drugs or gambling as soon as they get it and their children are left to scavenge around for food and clothing.
