A quick update to lighten your day. Yeah, right.
There’s a bit more news today I could not resist sharing, with regard to this woman on benefits and her house.
You’ll recall this lady.
The 11 children of an unemployed mother who has provoked outrage after it was revealed a taxpayer-funded £400,000 council home is being specially built for her family. Chloe, 13, Beth, 8, Angel, 16, Daisy, 5, Toby, 19, Page, 11, Emily, 10, Sophie, 21, Ruby, 7, Jay, 14, and Tilly, 3 –
The jobless mother, of Churchdown, Gloucestershire, has paid for her partner Jake Martin, 57, to have flying lessons.
A Tewkesbury Borough Council spokesman wouldn’t speak on Miss Frost’s case, but said: ‘Housing benefit is a statutory entitlement which we have a legal obligation to pay to those that qualify.’
It’s been revealed that the family own a horse, despite Ms Frost claiming benefits for her 11 children.
Yesterday 16-year-old Angel defended her mother saying that it is she who pays for the upkeep of the £200-a-month horse named Annie, but failed to explain where she gets the money.
Miss Frost said that she does not want two of the children’s three fathers to make a contribution to her finances and would ‘love’ to support her brood herself but does not need to because ‘there is help out there’.
A worker at the paddock claimed Miss Frost had recently arranged to buy two more horses but the deal fell through at the last minute.
She is understood to pay £65 a month in paddock fees and had negotiated a deal last month where she could stable a total of three horses for £175.
The worker said Miss Frost bought Annie ‘about eight months ago’, adding: ‘Horses are expensive. I know, I’ve had them all my life.
‘Annie has breathing difficulties, so the vet has to come out quite often. They must spend at least £200 a month on her.
‘They were going to buy two more horses recently, but that deal fell through. It’s sickening to think that she can afford what most people would consider a luxury at the expense of the British taxpayer.’
This sounds like some kind of a punchline doesn’t it?
... 11 kids, an airplane, and a horse with asthma!
Too bad it’s not a joke at all.
But it is Drew, Its a joke the the morons who continue to pay taxes in Great Britain instead of lining up in the queue for the same money using the same Bullshit.
So, you get your free Obama phone yet?
Here Peiper, Ill save you the trouble of posting this one:
Hey at least it’s a horse not drugs. What a joke, yeah the ‘on the dole’ are doing better than we are - cell phones and minutes paid for by the moron taxpayers who keep re-electing these 536 crapweasels in DC. Meanwhile, we do $10 a month on pay-go phones, mine which is so damn old, it’s about to go buttons up.
Here is a worthwhile video to get your American blood boiling (although I bet Britain has the exact same problem):
Me too Wardmama. And since I don’t spend my entire life texting, like some rude people do, I’ve got minutes to spare.
So for me, the $30 card that gets you 300 minutes and 60 days of service keeps my phone happy for just $5 per month. Plenty of SmartPhone users are paying more than $100 per month for connectivity and data plans. Maybe if I was a GeeWhiz in the corporate world I’d join them, but I can’t rationalize that kind of expense at this point in my life.
When my last $30 phone broke, I got a new one at Walmart, and since the Klown Posse there no longer sets up the phones for you, I called tech support in Bangladesh to get them to port the old number, the 19 days of service, and 4000 accumulated minutes to the new phone. “Rajiv” screwed it up, couldn’t do it, so I wound up with a new number, 1200 minutes, and a whacking great 180 days of service, which was really for the best. Of course I lost all my contacts, but I had most of them written down anyhow.
The government here wants to introduce a “bedroom tax” well not really a tax. People getting housing benefit like the skank in this article will only get benefit for the number of bedrooms occupied. So a person living on their own in a 3 bedroom house will now only get the rent paid for what a single room rent would go for. Of course the bed wetters in the BBC are up in arms dragging out examples of poor folk who will face a benefit cut. It boils my blood that these f**kwits fail to grasp that the money has run out.
