Known as the "Shameless" family among horrified neighbours, the McFaddens "boast" three generations of adults who are not working. All ten members of the clan share a council house and live off benefits amounting to around £32,000 a year. And very happy they are, too. "The only problem is," she says without a hint of irony, "that we're living in a three-bedroom council house, which is ridiculous. "I'm asking the council for a ten-bedroom home for all of us. We need more space. It's awful sometimes when all the children are squabbling. Still, we do have a big TV with Sky, but we need some relaxation."
Jean Thompson, 66, hasn't worked for over 40 years. She lives in Neath, Swansea, with husband Glyn, 61, a retired plumber. They have three grown-up children, two of whom live on benefits, including son Steven Martin, 39. "I'm certainly not angry that Steven doesn't have a job. He's got children, that's his job. And I don't worry that he's setting a bad example to his children - that's up to him." Steven left school 23 years ago and has worked for only five years in that time. It's 12 years since he last had a job. Steven lives in Swansea with partner Donna, 24, who's never worked, and their daughter Celsea, three. His eldest daughter from a previous partner, 17-year-old Jessica, is also on benefits.That is around 60,000 Australian dollars a year, for doing nothing, just sitting on your ass and watching daytime television all day. I can't even fathom that, you suckers are out there busting your asses to earn the average earnings in Australia, which I think is less than 60 large. And when you're done busting your ass to earn that and you get home, there's the taxman waiting for his share of the pie before you can lay your tired ass down so you can do it all over again the next day. Your tax pounds at work folks, hard at work. The News of the World reinforced the point with this story about a "preacher of Hate" (no prizes for guessing his religion), who is also feeding off the state he aims to destroy, receiving 25,000 pounds a year in benefits ( about $65,000).
Certainly, Emma Sussock's life is a grim blueprint set out by the generations before her. Her mother Ann, a divorcee, hasn't worked for 30 years, and exists on benefits and daytime television. Meanwhile, her beloved step-grandfather Carl Davies, a former gas fitter, has survived on benefits since a heart attack 20 years ago. Ann, a divorcee, lives in a one-bedroom council flat in West Derby, Liverpool. She says: "When I left school at 16 with no qualifications I did a youth training type scheme for a year, serving up meals at the local YMCA for about £25 a week. Then I went on benefits and haven't come off them since. I didn't enjoy the work. "I wasn't encouraged to work hard by my parents and lots of my friends went straight onto benefits, so I did the same.
Six million Britons are living in homes where no one has a job and "benefits are a way of life", according to a report by MPs. Shock figures also revealed that 20,000 households in Britain are pocketing more than £30,000 a year in state benefits.
The story follows on from another Muslim bludger , No Minister reported in February, who couldn't be bothered working because the same state, he too aimed to destroy, was happy to pay him , his wife and 11 kids some 27,000 pounds a year for sitting on his arse, except when impregnating his wife.
No wonder soft touch Britain has become a beacon to bludgers of whatever colour, be they British or immigrants and refugees from afar. But is it alone?
Now, I am not suspecting there's taxpayer funded 'Preachers of Hate" sucking off the state tit in downtown Sandrabad and Mt Roskillistan but I am sure there must be some equally worthless bludging scum somewhere in New Zealand, South Auckland especially.
I am sure an enterprising newspaper must be capable of finding some, even if it does not fit in with their values or agendas. I mean, the Weekend Herald might run such an expose but I doubt the Sunday Star-Times would, but who knows?
However, if anyone out there knows of similar welfare abuse, do let us know at No Minister. I am sure we can find a media outlet to put such a story to good use.
