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.

Documentary following the inhabitants of the seaside village of Jaywick in Essex, where more than half of the residents are on state welfare. Tony Taylor claims £51.40 a week and does odd jobs in exchange for food, enabling his benefits money to go a bit further, while Claire has moved from east London's Canning Town in search of a better life with her fiance Luke, their young baby and her two older children, who live with a host of pets in a two-bedroom house
