The following was written by a serving British solder.
I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.
In order to earn that pay, I train for war and eventually deploy. I am required to pass a random urine test for drugs, with which I have no problem.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.
Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a benefits cheque because I have to pass one to EARN IT for them?
Please understand that I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.
I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their arse drinking beer and smoking dope.
Could you imagine how much money the government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a benefit cheque?
