Accountable benefits

Anyone in receipt of public money should be held accountable for how it is spent. I propose a scheme similar to MP's expenses although names should not be released to the public.

The aim being to stop money being spent of luxuries such as a large television or designer clothes and directed instead towards healthy food, sport activities and self-education (textbooks etc.) as applicable for the form of benefit.

Those on job-seekers allowance would also have to prove they are doing something worthwhile with their days.
