I didn’t want to write about Jihadi John anhymore as I deeply dislike the media hype around him. However, he does seem to kick off a few discussions the media usually wouldn’t touch. Such as the abuse of our welfare state.
It’s not just the case in the UK but in most European countries – we have a reasonable amount of money and wealth and therefore systems to look after the weak in our society, people who need help. It’s a great system preventing people from falling into the darkest places of life. It’s a system built on trust hence easily abused. We never thought it necessary to put too many control measures into place, we thought it won’t be abused as it’s directly linked to our people, tax payers and hard workers. We never adapted the system to the new phenomenon of mass-immigration.
It’s gone out of control in so many ways. It allows immigrants to claim benefits the moment they arrive. It allows any kind of people to enter the country and stay in the country. And quite often terrorists can use the system to protect them from deportation into their native country. We are so tangled up in our own rules and probably many of our politicians happy to support terrorism and ISIS, it makes it impossible to get rid of criminal immigrants. Would it not be logical to send home who ever has come here to cause us harm? Where’s the logic there?
