Now that Northern Ireland is to obtain the sum of £2 billion pounds sterling under the heading of ‘The Stormont House Agreement’ how will the money be used?

Who knows? But this I do know – the Northern Ireland people will be the ones who will bear the brunt of paying the loans back.

There are many able-bodied people, male and female, in this country who are on benefits draining our economy on a daily basis who could and should be contributing to the financial welfare of our nation by producing goods for wages.

Get healthy people off the dole. Those who are able to work, but refuse every opportunity to do so, should be given no benefits.

Why should those who are willing to work be sacrificial lambs to support those who are too lazy to even get out of bed.
