All good points, but you don't offer any solution- I think I've got a few sufggestions that might work though.
Firstly, and most obviously, your passport should be seized as soon as you get your P45. We live in a modern republic, we can't be having the underclasses moving about as they wish, it sets the wrong tone for the whole affair.
Next, why don't we just publish a list every year of the goods, products and services that people on social welfare aren't allowed to purchase because they don't 'deserve' them. Maybe they should just have their own shops with nothing but generic brands? Need to think more on this.
Then we could get the unemployed to wear a mark of some sort- maybe they could wear a badge of some sort, or even get a brand into the skin so they can't cheat the system?- so that they can be easily identified on the street- again we can go through the details at a later stage. Round them up somewhere safe until then, I say.
My way, if you see 'one of them' with a phone that looks too new, or in too good a suit, or in the wrong shop buying the wrong thing, or getting out of the car at the pool (instead of cowering at home in shame like they should be), we can get a lynch mob up and running without any confusion.
By the way, it's only the interest on a mortgage that you can apply to have paid for you if you become unemployed during the term of the loan- the balance of the mortgage remains. This is probably a cheaper and better option than someone being evicted and having to have their housing needs met in another way anyway, but in fairness that's a little more complicated than just making up the facts to suit your argument.
