I am sure the person meant Universal credit.

BouharryArtikou:


The bolded is CATEGORICALLY untrue.
Do you know the salary of an Associate Professor?
Do you know that the salary of a Band 8a nurse or radiolograher or Biomedical scientist is less than 50k pa?

Are these folks above ‘less privileged’??


Your assumption appear to conflate BENEFITS with UNIVERSAL CREDIT.

So in your postulation, Tax Credits (as mentioned by Lexusgs430 and Zahrah29 is for ‘less privileged’?
Sorry mate, you are wrong (on this occasion).

I would have said the same thing but I got 1 year 30hr free childcare. I also did free Data science bootcamp.

For those that have access to public fund and are interested in cybersecurity, there is this government funded bootcamp that can give you 2 sans certifications (GFACT and GSEC).
Both training will cost about $12,000 if you are paying yourself. So, it is worth it. It is also widely recognised.

claremont:


Correct. It's only recently I started hearing about the child benefit that can be collected and then 'self-declared' at the end of the financial year for high income earners. 15 years in the UK and never once claimed a penny.

Yes o. Shikini means very small.

Did you say housing benefit with a household.income of 75k. No council will give you that option. In some council, people that their cases are very urgent (I.e. homeless), they are being moved from one hotel to another or shared flats as waiting list is crazily long.

Why would he suggest himself and his family to that?

Sincerely, public fund is for when you are down and very down.


Zahra29:


Lol what does shikini mean? Small?

Don't forget housing benefit and being able to join the massive queue for a council house cheesy (although as Lexus said, settled migrants might quickly come to realise that it's not worth meeting the low income and homeless/vulnerable criteria that makes them eligible to claim)

Shikini child benefit, 30hrs free childcare, access to free government bootcamps (if you are interested). I think dat's all.

BouharryArtikou:
Thank you to all who responded to my post below.

Please ehn, I have another question.
Now that I have recourse to public funds, does anyone know some that I can get? All my money haff finish. ILR application for a family of 4 finished all my savings.
We currently have pretax household income of 75k (50k + 25k respectively).

What benefits can I claw from the system please?
Man wan maximise everything ‘lost’ in this last 5+ years.

Are you in health sector?

Hehe..Life na hustle.. worth putting in the effort while relatively young... Just like I sought the opportunity to move to the UK, I have continued to be on the lookout for opportunities both within and outside the UK. The UK has been brilliant but my umbilical cord is not tied here.

For now, Canada offers significantly better pay, work-life balance and appreciation for my training and skillset and also pretty straightforward pathway to get in. It's proximity to the U.S is also another factor.

Sincerely, too much misinformation everywhere.

I had to comment because a lot of people can be led astray.

Anyway, solicitors will be smiling home.

Zahra29:


Well said.... thankfully it's not me calling it out.

So much misinformation these days. People think "just get a lawyer" as if the lawyer is a magician. They also have to follow the rules set by the home office.

So many lawyers will be cashing out in the aftermath of these strict rules - advising their clients to put in applications (that they know are frivolous and bound to fail), selling false hope and getting nicely paid for it.

I am not sure this is correct. One can be given leave outside the rule but it is not as trivial as you stated. There is a guidance for that.

I strongly doubt if someone will just be given leave to remain because the person gave birth during her study. If the child is British, then that explains it, if not then there will be other compelling issues. It is also not correct that you just need to get a job and then you will be given leave to remain. What's the need for COS then?

elengine:
It is a very simple case. If she is a dependant,all she needs to do is to engage a lawyer and apply for LR and she will continue to renew it. I have people that got LR just because she got job after school but has no dependant and she gave birth to a son during study. Those guys largely considers what they would lose if you leave too, so far you have a job and not a liability, then you can get any visa to extend your stay

100% agree with this. However, he employs a lot of immigrants. I have personally applied to TPP before. Would the immigrants not be targetted if the company loses the NHS contract? They can lose their sponsorship.

The man is a racist though. I am however not sure of the best way to penalise him.

Goodenoch:



PS. I agree fully that the comments were extremely racial and offensive and that there ought to be consequences despite the fact that he has apologized. I don’t know what those consequences can be because he’s not a public servant and his company is the one with NHS contracts, not him as an individual, and it would not be sensible to dispose of those if they were the best choice among competitors based on his personal views. I would boycott his businesses in my personal capacity if I could, however.

I have been thinking hard since yesterday on how to educate my kids about handling bullies.

Was she sleeping truly? If yes, then she might need to find an explanation for that.

For example, she might explain that on that particular ocassion she had some personal issues, say childcare that was out of the ordinary and really affected her mentally. We all have times when our guards are down.

I am not sure why sleeping on duty will be enough to take someone's licence though. That will be extremely harsh. She might need to consult her union and legal representatives.

rowon:
Good afternoon all. Please kindly advised. My wife was accused sleeping on duty where she works as a relief support worker in Scotland by an agency staff. She just Cos with another company recently. She has been suspended where she does relief support work and would be invited for disciplinary committee. She told me she was surprised the agency staff could do such because that very day the agency requested she wanted to leave 15 minutes earlier closing time because she lost someone . She gladly accepted .
Please kindly advise on how defend herself at the disciplinary committee so her license would not revoked if reported to the regulatory body (SSSC) and eventually the main employer will withdraw their COS . PLEASE WE NEED YOUR ADVICE!

Absolutely not. I trust justwise will be along shortly to remove all the nasty comments.

You can call out people ,thats fine. Name calling is not okay .

I did read through the thread in question (rather traumatic read, gentleman splashed his toddlers face all over the internet). It appears Lexus's grouse was that this gentleman had been disruptive in the Living in the UK thread while not yet ,in fact, living in the UK.

We will keep this thread open because as more and more nigerians migrate here, they ll turn to us for advice. We will never become a force to be reckoned with in the UK if we do not stand together and share experiences.

NB: you keep saying the information is "littered" all over the Internet but you are here reading this thread ,using the advice provided here. Shouldn't you go find the "littered " advice ?

It was your comment I quoted not mine. You specifically typed that, so be mindful of what you type next time.

I don't really care if you call me his "die-hard" fan but as you, "his die-hard enemy" are "calling" him out, I am able to call you out too when I believe it is tending towards "picking" on the person.

Everyone can use grammar on the thread.

We can all see the same screenshot that you have posted several times on the same page.

I am personally avoiding your words as I would not want to catch my kids with these kinds of words on social media, how much more an adult.

Just as you have screenshot his comment without the full context, I can screenshot all your nasty comments and share it on another thread, so people can pick on you.

It is worrisome that you are posting the same screenshot several times just to drive home your point. In the process, you have used insulting words, which are way worse than the comment you screenshot.

I can say that you are not morally qualified to call people out as you are worse than the person you are calling out.

Thank God you said "picking"on him.
Just by searching google, I got this. pick on somebody/something. ​to treat somebody unfairly, by blaming, criticizing or punishing them.

You can state your fact and move on, no need to.pick on him. When you start picking on someone, then you are worse than the person you are correcting.

That's the same way they will turn their back against you when you're on your own.

I don't share the same opinion with you though.
I instead see him as someone who takes life very easy and tries to find humour out of every situation.

Do I have the same personality? No!! Everyone cannot be the same.

I can however say he has contributed immensely to this thread. He has been consistent and always willing to answer question with a bit of humour. He is one of the people that has kept this thread going and interesting.


ehizario2012:


I don't follow his moniker around/about. Evidence on this thread is enough, he might be a different personality on other threads, just like he was on the car thread. But here he keeps making it look as though he's smarter than others, purely because he had what we call early mover's advantage in business management...

Yes, it is birmingham council. Labour mismanaged the council and the people are paying for it.
Democratic socialism or whatsoever has now translated to cutting essential services, selling properties, 21%increase in council tax in 2 years and much more. That is one of the biggest council in the UK and Labour has been in charge for years. So, there is no excuse you can give. It is terrible, shambolic!!

If Labour has done a terrible job in Birmingham, then we can infer that they can't do better if they run the UK. You guys have got no moral justification jawe.
As for me, ayam tired of both conservatives and Labour.

This is the issue I have as I think all of them are the same. For example, we know your party is responsible for a particular bankrupt council. Squandered and mismanaged the resources of the council. They are currently cutting costs and subjecting the people in the council to unnecessary hardship.
