    'Benefit Busters'

    anyone seen this programme currently being shown in the UK?

    quite amusing in some ways, some real characters etc..

    The woman who runs the back to work 'agency' is a multi millionairre paid by the government to 'get people into a job' - big scam really. (ie: private welfare company)

    Only a 3 part series and thankfully I'll be off to SEA soon but the job situation is harsh here now.


    Any views on this programme/topic?

    speak for yourself, plenty of people on the forum seem to come and go from SEA.

    I'm temporarily in the UK myself (for 2 months) so thought I'd share some gems of wisdom about life 'not in Thailand'. - if that's ok with you?

    I think ur looking for www.BoringBritTV.com. Why would I wanna discuss a brit show that has nothing to do with thailand? I don't, a better programme is the BBC's Blood Sweat and T-shirts!

    Seems a bit odd posting on a thread just to say you have no interest in it and then repeating yourself 4 times.

    Busy making stuff up apparently. I never said anything of the sort. Or is that your guilty conscience talking?

    Plenty of Brits here on dodgy benefits, especially the good old 'disability' scam, lazy sods. The characters are amusing when they are caught sailing round the world or nicked from boasting about their high life on facebook and the like, they often work while claiming they cannot get out of bed etc.

    I had a mate who lived in Thailand for 2 years once , just surviving of his 'incapacity benefit'. He used to get around 30K Baht / month - he was a total alcoholic waster and even scrounged his airticket back of some do-gooder Christians. Fair play to the lad!

    Fuck working , that's a mug's game!
