Al-Jahom links to this and makes very valid points.
If there are no jobs in your area, move. I'm currently at the other end of the country from the rest of my family and have been for a long time. I've lived in several places in between including a stint with nowhere to live, which I fixed without State help.
There are no chains binding anyone to anywhere. In fact, according to the EU, you can live and work anywhere in it. You're not even restricted to the UK.
Except... Labour have thought of that, haven't they? If you're currently in council housing, chances are that you had to wait on a list to get that house. Most likely a long list and you'll have watched the special-pleading cases overtake you while you waited.
So if you move somewhere else, you're back to the bottom of the list and as you're not local and in work (the reason you moved), you're below zero points. Okay. Rent somewhere. Not so easy though, not unless your job lets you afford to rent. Plus you'll now have all those household bills that the Benefits used to cover for you.
If you're out of work and in council accommodation, you are likely to face a serious downgrade in your standard of living if you move somewhere else to work. It's temporary but it's hard going. You can improve on it yourself but once you leave the Righteous behind, they won't help you at all. Labour's gamble was that you would not dare to do that. They gave you that 'Entitled' feeling and told you you were too good for low-paid work and let's be honest, who could resist flattery oiled with free cash?
It is possible to get out of the benefits trap but it will never be easy. It's not going to be any easier tomorrow, nor the next day, nor the day after that.
You have a choice. You can take the money and go back to sleep, exist on handouts until you die early in a hospice somewhere.
Or you can take your life back. It will involve a lot of work and sometimes you'll wonder why you're bothering but gradually, that feeling of 'entitled' will be replaced by a much better feeling. One that was stolen from you, corrupted, broken and given back as a distorted version of itself.
That feeling is 'self-worth' and when you feel it, you'll realise just what Labour have done to you and your family all these years.
I'm not saying you'll end up as rich as Polly Toynbee or be able to send your kids to posh schools like Diane Abbot. I'm certainly not rich but I get by pretty well on my own efforts. No handouts. I'm not saying it will be easy - it won't be.
I'm saying you can take the chance and try.
It's up to you.
