More rants from the minds of fictional people – Benefit Street

 Bolshy, moody and downright badtempered Valerie Anthrope gives her opinion on the current TV show Benefit Street.
Amazon
I watched Benefit Street last night, and my
God, I wanted to reach into the TV screen and slap every one of those lazy,
good-for-nothings. How dare they think they have a right to our precious welfare
system, built to provide for the needy NOT the lazy.


There was one woman (she ate her way through her dole cheque judging by
her size) who believed she was the spokeswoman for the entire street and wouldn’t
let anyone else get a word in. She seemed to think that what she received in
handouts wasn’t enough because she was forced—yeah right—to go to soup kitchens
just to eat. Did I mention she was fat? That’s some soup!

And then there was this guy
whose ‘job’ was scrounging for more money on the streets (to top up his
benefits) from the hard-working. 

Another stole for a living to
feed his six kids. He said he can’t work because he needs to help his wife look
after the sprogs, on the plus side it’s a two-parent family. Think he was a rarity on that street.

And all those people, well the
majority anyway had mobile phones, flatscreen TV, they smoked and managed to
sink several pints in the pub on a daily basis! That’s not struggling on the
welfare system that’s bloody taking the piss!

Work-shy scrougers the lot of them. – Valerie Anthrope from Oh no,
I’ve Fallen in Love!

Now for the turn of gullible but thinks-she’s-smart Charlotte (Charlie) Wallis

There was a heart-breaking programme on the box last night. About people living
on welfare, or trying to. Obviously, it isn’t enough money for the poor sods
because the majority are forced to steal just to eat! 
One guy has six children
to feed and the money he’s given isn’t enough for them. Just because he’s on
benefits doesn’t mean his kids are! The children shouldn’t have to suffer.
Where is their support, eh? 

A lady, White Dee, I think
her name was, was the street’s backbone. An intelligent voice among the demoralised.


The programme was a little bit of a circus for the working smug, which I don’t think was the intention, or at least I hope not, becuase once you’re on
the downward slope of being without a job, with no prospects and live amongst others
like yourself you become discouraged and eventually probably depressed. 

And I should know. I’ve been there. Luckily, I had a friend to pull me back up else I’d probably still be in the gutter. But what do these people have? 

Diddley squat, that’s what. There
needs to be more out there for people who are battling with unemployment. More
help and more money. – Charlie Wallis from A Proper Charlie.

If (some) indie authors were car dealers.

Here’s an offer you can’t refuse!
If YOU, yes, you, tell everyone about my fabulous cars {please tweet/blog about my god-damn awful book} I’ll take you for FREE 600 mile spin {I’ve made the book free so you have no excuse not to read it}, but you must tell your friends how fab the drive is along those long, dreary, no-sign-of life-anywhere, roads {there’s no plot, just endless waffle}.
I know there are a few silly faults {typos} (broken wing mirror etc, but nothing that will ruin your enjoyment of driving), so I’d like to put it out there that if someone knows of someone who can fix cars for free, {please edit my 600-paged book for free} I will personally put their name in the window of my shop, which will bring them potentially LOTS of clients especially as I’ll tell all my customers how fabulously you fixed them. I can’t be fairer than that, can I?
My cars are special. You won’t find a Mini, Fiat or a Range Rover, but a mismatch of each and every car the world over so one size fits all! {The genre is mixed: romance, horror, crime, suitable from birth to 100, has a mix of comedy and noire. Oh, and bondage, and don’t forget the vampire!}.
I’ve cleaned each and every car myself because I can’t afford staff, but hey, I have a degree in cleaning so it’s all good {I uploaded my own photos}. Anyway, I’ve have no complaints so far, all my friends and family think they are beautiful cars. 
But oh, and when I asked for advice on the colour of one of my cars, I didn’t expect people to hurt my feelings {not interested in hearing the truth}. That was mean. I LOVE the yellow and brown and think it compliments the red polka dots stickers perfectly {really awful cover photo-shopped cover}


And I KNOW the steering is wonky in all of the cars, which sends them from one side of the road to the other, but that’s part of their charm! {Mixed POV. Even the cat has its own storyline.}

So, open to you, who wants the privilege of reviewing/mending my cars? {read and tell me it’s the best thing since, like, ever!}


The offer is there for one week only so hurry or you could miss out!!
The offer has been extended for a MONTH!

Anyone?

A British read that sums up the entire chick lit genre: fun, relationships and ‘finding yourself’.

Sssh, don’t tell everyone, but it’s half price for one week only


Sorry, folks, but it’s back to normal price now.

Her senses were acute to sound, and her brain
nagged her to flee, but she remained motionless. The old, old trick: play dead.

 
Imagine being an astronaut.


Now imagine applying for a mission where you became one of the first humans to travel outside the solar system.

The training couldn’t prepare you for what was about to happen–the unimaginable.

Jenny Daykin, her co-travellers presumed dead, became shipwrecked on Eden.


She wasn’t alone.


Jenny Daykin, ordinary woman with an extraordinary dilemma: kill or be killed. Surrender or invade. Hunt or Hunted. Love or hate.

Hunted #2

As the only survivors they rely on one another. But he isn’t human and the place she calls home, isn’t Earth

 

Nook  

Jenny chose love. An emotion only felt by higher species such as you or I. 

But do so-called ‘higher species’ need to have the thought-process of hope love? Or are such emotions mere survival instincts? Or, even, a disabling thought-process? 

An error of human-kind?


Somehow, Jenny found herself wondering just that as she was forced to quell her emotions in order to survive.
