I'd also go as far as no money should change hands, there should be some sort of token system, and those tokens can only be spent on essentials.
As for expecting them to sit in a flat staring at walls, no, I expect those who are able, to go and get a job. All I am hearing is we have a shortage of people to do jobs, all the while we have 9.5 million of working age, on benefits.
We don't need to import workers, we need to get our lazy into work.
All the while they are not struggling to get by and don't see any shame in what they do, this will never change.
These things don't have to be difficult, they are just made difficult by all the luvvies and those not wishing to lose votes.
Same with the boat illegals. If you enter this country illegally, you will never be able to stay, oh and definitely no benefits.
