English couple, 18, 21 and baby, living on welfare and say it’s their right, as indeed it is. (Note to skeptics: Neither the editors of FWIW nor Monty Python staff writers played any role in reporting this story).
A young couple who receive more than £17,000 a year in benefits appeared on ITV’s This Morning to defend their taxpayer-funded lifestyle.
Danny Creamer, 21, and Gina Allen, 18, who live in a comfortable two-bedroom flat in Portsmouth with their four month old daughter, Talulah Rose, say they are better off on £17k benefits and argue that unless they are able to find jobs that pay £18,000 a year or more, there’s no point in working.
Although neither have any qualifications, Danny, who has also worked as a shelf stacker in the past, says he is now looking for a job – although says he won’t accept any old role.
‘What is the point [of a minimum wage job]? You know, I’m not going to go to work to be worse off.’ he argued.
Gina added: ’The main problem is is that the cost of living is going up so much but the wages are just the same. But people still expect you to live on the minimum wage – I don’t think that’s right.’
Danny added: ‘We can’t be scroungers because the Government wouldn’t give us the money or pay towards our living expenses if we didn’t need it.’
It makes perfect economic sense from these dreadful people’s point of view, and the philosophy expressed by Danny, “we have a need and therefore others have an obligation to meet that need” is the same lesson taught in our schools and preached by Democrats, from the president on down to the lowliest, welfare mooching NEA member.
