Once again I find myself reading about, discussing and considering the ‘state’ of the UK welfare state.
There are certain ‘untouchables’ in most societies and the welfare state is one of them. However, regardless of its status the case still remains; people are discontent with the current UK welfare state.
People are increasingly becoming aware of the failings within the flawed system, and are on the receiving end of some hideously bad experiences. It is not the people that need to be coerced to change their views, but the system itself that needs to change to reflect the new world it inhabits.
The failure of the welfare system impacts on all people. This system failure, and its continued seepage of taxpayers money has been dragging on for too many years. It has become a bane to the country.
Yet, no Government has had the courage to address the root of the inequities in the system, from fear of upsetting the populace. Consequently the issues have become entrenched and vast to the point of nearly becoming impossible to solve! Plus, the system itself is so comprehensive and far from being ‘policed’ thoroughly enough; for example, it is impossible to unmask all the people who claim a benefit fraudulently or who aren’t receiving what they should! The reasons for this; the system has become a monster, biting the hand of its master, out of control almost! No one has the reins any-more.
Therefore, it is clear that the welfare system itself, its policies and procedures that make it what it is, are to blame. It needs instant reform!
It is now too far removed from its purpose. Welfare is meant to be a system in place for those most in need, but it isn’t; it is supposed to be a stop gap provision, but it isn’t; it’s supposed to prevent people falling into poverty, but it doesn’t.
So, change the system, and stop plastering over the cracks once and for all; before the whole house collapses!
