Should we give free money to everyone?

Universal Basic Income is one of the most divisive economic theories of the 21st century. And since the coronavirus has tanked the global economy, it has gained more and more support.

But what exactly is a basic income? And could it actually help people now that furlough is ending?

    They can't even get Universal Credit right so how would they manage something more universal. Universal credit has actually meant a benefit cut for those unable to work. The rules are getting tougher. I have moved this week and am currently in a situation where my claim for housing benefit cannot be progressed because I need to provide utility bills proving my new address. Not very easy.

    Free money sounds good but i think the money could go to better use such as NHS, police etc.

    Sounds like communism to me. I believe in unemployment benefit, disability ect but basic income is a joke. Full reliance on the government not only sounds horrible but also dangerous. Everyone should want to achieve goals and better themselves.

    I've been saying we should do this for years, pay everyone a taxable universal basic income, would mean those on benefits would not need to claim as much and would still be paying taxes on some of their income (the UBI part of their income).

    This is the best idea I've heard. The system we have now is broken and outdated we have people that can't afford to turn on the heating at night.
    We are under the illusion that we need the money/ currency system our government swear by it was invented for power and to separate and divide humanity by greedy barbaric human beings that didn't know any better thousands of years ago and we still think its the best policy for a modern earth. A living wage as I call it is the way to more equality and to help the homeless problem in this world today. Ask yourself what is debt and who do we the British people actually owe it to. THEY MAKE ALL THIS BU#$#IT UP.

    Every election cycle,millions are spent.
    As an unaffiliated voter, everyday y mailbox is filled with both sides giving me ways to start my winter fire.
    Never read any of them as its all hyperbole. False promises at best to lure the voter in.
    In what is spent on elections,millions could be empowered to start businesses..
    No money should be spent at all..
    Every voter should be polled as to what needs are not met.

    Poor people steal due to need.
    Rich people steal because they feel they've a right to.
    The old .."he who has the gold rules"
    Is an archaic idea designed by selfish people.

    WE DO NOT CONSENT

    NOTHING IS FREE WHEN IT IS ISSUED BY BANKERS…….HERE'S MY SOLUTION;
    STEP 1 – END THE CURRENT CRIMINAL MONOPOLY THE "DEBT MONETARY SYSTEM" DEBITS/CREDITS BY PRIVATE TOKENS
    STEP 2 – JAIL "ALL" BANKERS AND CONFISCATE "ALL" THEIR ASSETS AND WEALTH
    STEP 3 – END AND CRIMINALIZE ANY FUTURE "PRIVATE/PUBLIC DEBT BASED MONETARY SYSTEMS"
    STEP 4 – JAIL "ALL" BANKER CO-CONSPIRATORS AND DISMANTLE ALL DEAD GOVERNING ENTITIES EG., CORPORATIONS
    STEP 5 – THE LEGALIZATION AND USE FOR ALL HUMANITY BY THE "GRACE BASED MONETARY SYSTEM" CHARGE/DISCHARGE BY SIGNATURE
    STEP 6 – HUMANITY IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY LIBERATED FOREVER AND EVER AND FOR AS LONG AS BANKERS NEVER RESURFACE
    STEP 7 – TIME TO REST, TIME TO PRAY, TIME FOR JOY, TIME FOR PLAY, HUMANITY HAS FINALLY CREATED "HEAVEN ON EARTH". GOD BLESSED

    We all know the truth behind the banking system putting digits into existence to few people’s control and benefit. Help the people in need and don’t slap a label on it. My opinion…
