from each no matter what their means, to all who want some of it anyway

I have about a 100 things to get done today and this is one ovem.

While reading this I wondered if I could convince the govt. that I’m an asylum seeker from the USA.  Based on a program broadcast last night on BBC radio wherein the host had absolute proof that Nixon was a traitor and kept the war in Nam going so that he would win in 68 thus stealing the election from Humphrey, well.  They might believe the wife and I are needy of a million dollar home as this place is too small and too old.
Nah. Never work.
Wrong social group and color.

Gotta wonder though how people come here and manage to convince the authorities that living large at the txpyer expense is somehow a right. And not just a right but a very large and expensive one.

Mother of six demands she is rehoused in exclusive suburb after a cap on housing benefit forced her out of £2MILLION home ( roughly 3 million 23 thousand in dollars )

A mother-of-six who was forced out of a £2million home in one of London’s most expensive areas after the government introduced a cap on housing benefit is demanding the council rehouse her in the same neighbourhood so her children can attend an elite school.

Stephanie Demouh, originally from Togo, in west Africa, was entitled to the handouts because she claimed she was a single mother.

She was allocated a four-bedroom house in Belgravia, near Sloane Square, where she has been living for about three years with her children.

It is not known how much exactly Ms Demouh’s rent was each month and whether it was all funded from the housing benefit she received which totalled £1,200 a week.

However, after the government housing benefit was capped at £400-a-week she was forced to move into temporary accommodation 10 miles away in Edgware by Westminster City Council on December 29. 

The mother, who is studying accountancy at Westminster University, wrote to councillors to complain and believes she should be rehoused by the council in the exclusive neighbourhood, where the average four-bedroom property is worth about £6million, so her four children can attend a top Church of England school.

She hopes her fifth child will start in September.

Ms Demouh says her children are now always tired because of the distance they have to travel on the bus to school.

She told The Sunday Times: ‘My children are suffering because they are overtired all the time.

‘I can’t change my place of study. If you have to attend a nine o’clock lecture, you can’t be at both places together.’

According to records single mum Demouh married in 2001 but she was the only adult living in the house with her children.

Companies House records shows that her husband owns an online clothes store called Ambro & Phany. She is listed as the company’s secretary.

Despite claiming to the council that she is a single mother, it is understood she owns 50 per cent of the shares of her husband’s company.

When asked if her husband contributes to the family’s living costs, she said ‘a lot’.

Ms Demouh has denied outright that she has been involved in any fraudulent activity.

A council spokesman confirmed the local authority will investigate the case and will look at Ms Demouh’s entire history with the council.

Cllr Jonathan Glanz, Westminster Council’s cabinet member for housing said: ‘This investigation is ongoing, so we cannot comment on the specific details.

‘Westminster City Council are committed to ensuring that homes and taxpayers’ money are used to help only those in genuine need and will not tolerate people “playing the system” to their own benefit.

‘We will unhesitatingly take court action against those who make false claims to ensure that money only goes to those who genuinely need it.’

A crackdown on housing benefit has seen a massive fall in the number of families claiming over £30,000 a year, the Government say.

There has been a 75 per cent drop in the largest claims in three years, new figures show, after ministers pledged to cut the ballooning welfare budget.

Payments to tenants in the private rented sector were capped at £250 a week for a one-bedroom flat up to £400 for four bedrooms.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
