    He claims £89.80 a week incapacity benefit for a bad back

    They live with ten of their youngest children – the oldest five have moved away
    His back wasn't bad enough to breed, was it?

    Indeed I am, I expected a barrage of socialist tripe about how he's a victim of his society or something. :rofl:
    I expect Teveth will say something like that :rolleyes:

    regardless of the family, has noone ever questioned the media's fascination with benefits claimants, and their practically orgasmic reactions if they are immigrants ? Tbh what I have seen in the past 2 years + is very orwellian; creating basically 2 minutes of hate every morning by means of creating a common enemy. It is a very dangerous path, as history has taught.

    secondly, whatever this family is, why are tax evaders, corrupt corporate bosses and even more corrupted politicians not subject to front page news or the artificial 2 minutes hate ? seems quite like hipocrisy to me.

    So it mentioned that their 5 eldest children have moved out... but if she's 36 then they can't be that old, surely. I wonder where they've gone?

    Anyway, if he can't work, then force her to get a job, and he can look after the children. Maybe he can study for some qualifications at the same time, increasing his chance of finding work once the government realise his back is fine...

    Extremely angry. These people are everything that is wrong with society. I hate to break it to you, foul chavs, but you do not have a right to be riding the dole and scrounging off of the taxpayer. Yes, people do have a right to say things about them...because they're living off of our money! Classless, tasteless, uneducated and downright disgusting.

    Also, 'bad back', sorry but you can sit at a chair and press buttons, therefore you can do most desk jobs.

    Bring on the negs from the lefties who will undoubtedly say "it's not his fault". :rolleyes:


    YOU SAID SOMETHING I AGREE WITH FOR ONCE *hyperventilates*
    but seriously guys, I don't understand quite HOW he manages to get so much money.
    My dad is unable to work because of a severe stroke a few years ago - prior to that, he was an engineer - and now my mum acts as his carer.
    We can't even get our rent paid for us and I think we recieve just under 11k a year, it's gotten to the point where my 28 year old brother owns the house that we live in..
    It's cases like this that really anger me because it makes everyone who claims disability etc look like a complete scrounger. People who genuinely are unable to work should be getting help, but that amount of money is obscene for the health issues he claims to have. I don't even understand how he's managing to get that much from the government

    That's so sad about your dad. It's cases like that that the benefits should be helping, not idiots like the guy in the article. I agree, he gives those who genuinely need help a bad name.

    I don't know how they do it either, they probably fiddle the system somehow, or it's all in child benefits.

    Haha, a thread got deleted that was saying something like "should we execute the chavs?" and so I made one saying "Why don't we have freedom of speech on TSR?". Needless to say, it got deleted too...:rolleyes:

    Oh lol Teveth also accused me of abusing my cat...because apparently, all Tories hate animals.:lolwut:

    I bet they knew what they were doing. Oo lets have a crap loads of kids and we will get monies galore!!

    The bad back is also the classic excuse. I have a bad back and need physiotherapy, but I work!! I'm a hospital cleaner at the moment and it's not exactly easy on the ol' back.

    Scrounging SCUM!

    It's a shame that people who NEED state help are lumped together with idiots like this who reproduce like rabbits. I (and i assume most of you) know the difference that state help can make to a person/family who cannot provide for themselves due to circumstance.
    This family are surely playing the system. Why can the mother not work? Doe's she have to look after her husband due to his bad back? (even though it states he rides a motorbike). How is he managing to have sex if his back is bad?

    Ughh sorry for the incoherent ramble i just realized the source is the daily mail.

    Why can't they even dress respectably for a photo that will be used in the Daily Mail?

    They're just asking to be hated, by wearing tracksuits, goatees and Addidas caps.

    I know my dad would absolutely love to be in work again, it's just not really possible. :/

    thats the bit I don't get though - the amount of forms and evidence and proofs and doctors notes etc that are needed to claim things, we've had countless things sent back because my mum spelt something wrong or didn't provide "enough" evidence. It seems impossibly hard to fiddle the system, + child benefit is reduced the more kids you have so I can't see how it would possibly make up that much difference. Argh, I hate stories like this excuse me if I get ranty! thankfully they're in the minority.
    It's the local council that would be paying their rent, I think - which is ridiculous, because we can't even get a council house
