That seems pretty clear: it would be cheaper to just allow welfare cheats to cheat the tax payer.
PS: Police chasing thefts probably costs more than is recovered.
Under Pressure From Trump, Company Says It Will Keep Workers In U.S.
Democrats Ask Oversight Committee To Investigate Trump’s Potential Conflicts Of Interest
There is no conflict of interest. He became president to increase his own wealth and that of his fellow 1%ers. You only see a conflict of interest because you think he should be governing for the 99%.

What God Might Tell Theresa May About Brexit
Verily in Brexit, there is relief. Brexit, build for me near you a house in paradise.
Whoever holds firmly to Brexit has indeed been guided to a straight path.
And Brexit will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but will give good tidings to the patient. For Brexit does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear. But never say of anything, “I will do that tomorrow,” except when adding "Brexit willing”
Life in the EU is only the enjoyment of Deception. He that chooses EU over Brexit, it will not be accepted from him and in the world to come he will be one of the lost.
Boris is Brexit's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to Remainers but merciful to each other. Let not Brexiteers make friends with Remainers in preference to the faithful
Your journalism fits the modern zeitgeist: "it is always someone else's fault" and "it is always someone else's job to fix it." Or, in this case: "let's get people mad at someone because he didn't do my job for me."

Blue-Collar Democrats To Party: It’s Still The Economy, Stupid
The trade unions have been trying to get the democrats to bring back tariffs for 50 years - now a pseudo-conservative might give them their big-government wish. That this means protection for a few at the expense of most Americans is irrelevant. Trade unions have always been about their own workers first and everyone else second - that's their job. It is summed up by a sentiment Mr Trump agrees with: "I'm alright, Jack."
However, even if the democrats HAD listened, they would have lost: nominating Hilary when even their own polls showed that everyone in America hated her was worse than arrogance; it was hubris.
Mitch McConnell Doesn’t Think Draining The Swamp Is A ‘Real Concern’ Of Regular People

This austerity is outrageous! To boost our current lifestyle, we should be borrowing much more money that our children and grandchildren will have to pay back. After all, they can't stop us; they are too young to vote.
Obamacare Benefits Plenty Of People In States Donald Trump Won
So what? They have already voted and hence are no longer needed.
Republican congress wants to repeal it is because it kicked them off the very generous federal benefits scheme in 2014 and forced them to buy their own health insurance on the exchanges. They want to get back to the trough.

How online hoaxes and fake news played a role in the election
There seems to be a movement that wants Facebook to become an editor, deciding which news stories from other websites are fake and hence may not to be shared by people on its platform. To be effective, that would have to include filtering Breitbart & Huffpo, FOX & CNN, ABC & CBS, PBS & NPR and the like. That is a very, VERY scary idea.

Repeating lies is the backbone of Breitbart and FOX Cable News shows
If they can do it, why can't the BBC?
Of course, the motivations are different:
Breitbart and FOX do it to make money, while the BBC does it to be able to say "I told you so."
It has been decided that no Hillsborough fan ever did anything wrong, they were all blameless angels who were deliberately slaughtered by the police. Anyone who does not agree with that today will be lambasted by left, right and center.
Federal Judge Declares Constitutional Right to ‘Stable Environment’
Oh, well; if that's ALL, go ahead then.
Austrian Socialists Block Burqa Ban Bid
In western secular societies, anyone who wears a burka or niqab is either deliberately disrespecting local cultural values and deliberately offending her native neighbours, is being oppressed by someone who is forcing her to wear it or is simply pig ignorant.
Still, not sure that means the government should ban it. In a free society, people have a right to be deliberately offensive and if we forbade stupidity and ignorance, none of us would survive.

Where did he punch her and why was she eating dinner in the face?
“Bollocks” To Claim Freedom Of Movement For EU Citizens Is Founding Principle Of EU
It was just precedent, or: "a series of decisions by the courts," and we all know that precedent is just bollocks and has never been an integral part of EU or UK law. Innit?

What? How dare he interview someone we don't like?
We do NOT want to hear what this person, possibly the next leader of France, thinks.
He should particularly not interview people involved with our future on a day when we are focused on the past.
The audience might end up thinking "what was it all for?" Can't have that, can we?
Anti-Donald Trump Protests Gain Strength Days After Election
So it should gain! We don't want no democracy in America!
We are only for democracy if OUR side wins.
If the other side wins an election, we are for revolution and dictatorship.
Down with the will of the people!
Jeremy Corbyn Says Nato Should ‘Demilitarise’ Its Border With Putin’s Russia
Well of course we should. And Russia should demilitarise its border with Ukraine,
Pakistan should demilitarise its border with India,
North Korea should demilitarise its border with the South and
Syria should demilitarise its border with Daesh.
Don't like our chances though.
History Teacher Removed From Classroom For Comparing Trump To Hitler
Of course he should be removed.
How dare he have an opinion - especially an opinion that is supported by facts.
Saying Trump is like Hitler is unacceptable.
Had he said Hilary was like Hitler, that would have been OK.

6)Can the guy who routinely stiffs his contractors repair our infrastructure on the cheap?
Trump’s US Presidential Election Win Sees Hundreds Of Protesters Gather American democracy believes in the peaceful transition of power and coming behind whoever wins as OUR president. People who protest this are anti-American and anti-democracy.
(I say that as someone who did not support Trump during the campaign nor vote to elect him.)
‘Millions To Lose Insurance,’ And Other Likely Headlines From The Trump PresidencyCongratulations Huffpo. By giving Trump 4 times the coverage of any opponent, you played a big role in helping to get him elected.
[Some] Reading Students Boycott University Challenge After Accusing Jeremy Paxman
"Misogyny and sexism are not about ‘offending’ contestants, but undermining and oppressing individuals due to their gender."
That could be so, but this article contains NO evidence that Paxman committed either mysogyny or sexism. False accusations are not about offending the accused, they are deliberate oppression designed to ruin the target's good name and character.
"...the university has come under fire for failing to support student’s views."...
The University said it would "support any students who feel they have been victims of prejudice and investigate any complaints, but none have been reported to us.” Basically, the students are saying that the university should support their oppression of Paxman with no evidence, indeed without even a complaint.

The vicious assault on UK judges by the Brexit press is a threat to democracy
"Okay, I didn't tell you so very loudly; more of a whisper, really, but I did tell you so."
1) it was not the two main candidates trashing each other
2) it would require hard work and intelligence to cover

All they said was: the Queen's government does not have the power to change UK laws, only your parliament can do that.
However, I do wonder if women in niqabs and burkahs could be charged with wearing a uniform with political objectives.

Brexit Vote Fuelled By Public Distrust Of Politics After Tony Blair
It will be interesting to see, then, whether parliament votes with their constituents on triggering article 50. To paraphrase the mobile phone commercial: "Can you hear me yet?"
Look what happened to Winston Smith when he couldn't learn.

What is going on in this country. he asks?
The answer:dual standards.
It is perfectly acceptable to mock Christianity but not to mock the other two semitic religions (Jewish or Muslim). For example, showing "Life of Brian" is just good fun, while "Life of Moishe" or "Life of Mahummit" would be a hanging offense.
Starbucks Cups Controversy Prompts Bizarre Link To Islam
Ah me. Green is now exclusively Muslim? Who ARE these idiots?

Worst of all, media outlets like Huffpo present this tripe as if it were news.
