Life on Easy Street with the compliments of the Brit Taxpayer who grow money on trees in gardens.

PRETTY DAMN PATHETIC.  HE’S DEPRESSED AND CAN’T WORK, SHE SAYS THEY HAVE TO BUY EXPENSIVE SHOES FOR KIDDIES SO THEY’LL FIT IN AT SCHOOL.
THE DAMN TRUTH OF IT IS, THEY GET MONEY FOR EVERY BABY.

LIFE ON EASY STREET

Ray and Tracey Ramond have been branded Britain’s biggest beneficiaries from state handouts.

The couple and their nine children hit the headlines three years ago when it emerged they received £39,000-a-year in benefits.

The payments amounted to more than £750 a week, but the Ramonds said they still struggled to pay their rent, despite receiving housing benefit.

Mr and Mrs Ramond were living in a three-bedroom house in Newcastle upon Tyne with their children Cherlynne, 13, Stacey, 12, Chantelle, 11, Nicky, ten, Susan, nine, Courtney, seven, Leigh, four, Tia, three, and 11-month-old Chardonnay.

Mrs Ramond, then 36, said she could not work because she was a full-time carer for Stacey, who has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and her husband was off work with depression.

She said: ‘It’s hard for us making ends meet, it really is. I try to cook healthy food for the kids and keep them looking presentable and the money just goes on food and clothes. Our two older children only want the best trainers because they’re at school and don’t want to get picked on so what can we do?’

In an average week, Mrs Ramond said she spent £250 on food, £100 on clothes and nappies, £55 on gas and electricity and £150 paying off catalogue bills and a loan.

The rest went on cigarettes, mobile phone bills and pocket money for the children.

In all, the family received housing benefit, child benefit, child tax credit, carer’s allowance and incapacity benefit.

The Ramonds were last night unavailable for comment.

THE LEECHES, MR. AND MRS.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

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.
