Family of 5 down the street with only one part time earner heading off for 2 weeks on holiday. Isn't the govt just subsidising their holiday? Flame away but I am starting to think that if a family of 5 can afford a holiday away then they probably shouldn't get any assistance. And

I think you probably are being unreasonable but we all get a bit envy every now and then. Well done on having the longest thread title though!

None of your business. How do you know they have not been left money in a will? Savings plan paid up? Maxed out a credit card?

Wow! I take it you're very pissed off about this. grin

What is the family of 5? One adult, four kids? Four adults, one kid?

2 week holiday. It could be in a tent in a field at the end of the road.

And!? And?...
You can't leave us in suspense like this Op...

You think a family of 5 with 1 part time earner can afford not to have any help at all?

You're bright aren't you

How did you do that? Doesn't it normally do ... for long thread titles?

SheelaNeGoldGig Fri 28-Sep-12 10:13:37

Long title and a blank post. You are still being unreasonable though.

usualsuspect3 Fri 28-Sep-12 10:14:05
