Carolyn
She can't manage on £375 per week. She's not even paying rent as she's staying with a friend. Shes getting more money than someone who works . God help her if she got a job, she would be getting less money.
annoyed! !   7:23pm Fri 7 Jul Report Abuse

full of admiration ..
for good old taxpayers who make life so comfortable for those who don't want boring old work. Marie can afford to have as many ideals as she wishes, and be a perfect mother, but it doesn't change the fact that she is a parasite.

Benefit House: Me & My 26 Kids This edition of the programme focuses on large families who depend on the benefits system, including 64-year-old Peter Rolfe, whose children - by 15 different women - range in ages from three to 43, of which he is the sole carer for six. He has been fighting his council in the Isle of Wight for a much bigger house and is also at loggerheads with the benefits office for capping his weekly payment. West Midlands mother-of-eight Marie Buchanan has recently split from her partner and is looking for a larger home, while Ipswich couple the Fisks have been in dispute with their neighbours, who objected to two houses being knocked into one to accommodate them and their 13 children
