"Giving people on welfare the money to pay their landlords directly is probably one of the most stupid ideas the government has ever thought of"

Yay, and giving people benefit money to spend on food, 'leccy and clothes is stupid, the payments should go straight to the People Commisariate Of Poor People's Food.

No, if ***I*** am the claimant, *I***I**** should receive the benefit. My landlord's not the benefit claimiant, ********I*(********* am.
