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.

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.

The documentary examining the lives of individuals on the dole in the UK follows the stories of Roma people who moved to the UK and are now surviving on payments from the welfare state. Ion is from Romania and wants to make £40,000 from benefits to help him build a new house for his family back in his home village, while Katarina arrived from Slovakia seven years ago and has 11 children and 11 grandchildren living in and around an estate in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Nottingham resident Viorel is 25 and lost both legs in an accident in his native Romania when he was seven, and now wants to pursue a career in the movies
