Question by Reality plus 10%: UK: What would happen if there wasn’t welfare in the UK?
It seems nearly everyday there’s some story about benefit abuse of the mega family on “75000” a yr

yet I do wonder what would happen if say the government had to slash the welfare bill by 50% or in fact welfare didn’t exist.
surely, as I believe, we would have more homelessness, crime antisocial behaviour, and the creation of “shanty towns” – made up of local rubbish.

It appears to make good – copy in the media about “benefit bashing” but has anyone considered the consequences of massive benefit cuts ?

There has already been homeless Romanians “pitching up” in park lane central London – is this behaviour likely to get worse ?

Also with the housing benefit capped at £26000, what happens when all the low-paid cleaners, maids road sweepers, bin men, carer’s etc etc cant afford to live in London because of low wages and thus move to the outer suburbs who is going to do these jobs ?
brings whole new meaning to the term; “social security”

If the government RAISED the minimum wage, and REMOVED low income tax credits –
[ currently about £4Billion ] using the money to lower employer national insurance to offset the increased wages, surely this would increase the gap between working and benefit dependency ?
BTW, I work and don’t claim benefits.
