Crime Support

That generous public-funded welfare leads to crime has been well established but even now statistics like this surprise and dismay:

One in three people claiming unemployment benefit is a convicted criminal, figures show.

Taxpayers are funding around £2billion a year in out-of-work payments to nearly 1.3million people with criminal records, including £1.2billion to those on Jobseeker’s Allowance.
I wonder what that figure would be in Australia.
