    An email I have just received. All very true




    Oh BRITAIN, where did we go wrong?


    We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.?

    Are you aware of the following?


    The British Government provides the following financial assistance: -

    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER (bearing in mind they worked hard and paid their Income Tax and National Insurance contributions to the British government all their working life) Weekly allowance: £106.00
    IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN (No Income Tax and National Insurance contribution whatsoever) Weekly allowance: £250.00



    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Weekly Spouse allowance: £25.00
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Weekly Spouse allowance: £225.00



    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Additional weekly hardship allowance £0.00
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Additional weekly hardship allowance £100.00

    A British old age pensioner is no less hard up than an illegal immigrant/refugee yet receives nothing


    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £6,000
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT: £29,900


    Please read all and then forward to all your contacts so that we can lobby for a decent state pension.

    After all, the average pensioner has paid taxes and contributed to the growth of this country for the last 40 to 60 years.

    Sad isn't it? It's about time we put our own people first.

    Most people won't have the guts to forward this.

    I Just did!

    " forward to all your contacts" is a clue that it is worthless spam

    At the head of the email is about 100 addresses all of whom are pensioners I assume.
    I don't see anything wrong with the figures stated.
    Defo not BNP just read the papers similar figures are stated nearly every day.
    Anyone not believing this has their head in the sand.

    Mmmm hmmm. What about taking your head out of the sand for a minute and asking yourself how it is that somebody who is an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT gets all those benefits? How do you think they kick that one off? What do they put on the application form when it asks for e.g. their Nat Ins number? If you're still struggling with this, let me help. The answer is - ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS CAN'T GET BENEFITS!!!

    Anybody daft enough to believe these sort of emails shouldn't be allowed to vote as it's probably in large part down to them and their simple friends that the country is in the mess that it's in.

    Amen.
