Abuseing the system
This is a absolute joke claiming benefits while driving a new Aldi convertible and having abroad holidays and having hair luxuries !! People that work very hard to pay bills bills it's a mockery of what the benifit system is for. ??

Benefits aired 16 november 2016
Comments about the goverment giving people on benefits their rent money to pay themselfs is spot on. The torie goverment are setting us up. People will becone homeless at a higher rate than ever in history. Its simple tories take off the poor and give to the rich, labour take off the rich and give to the poor. It a no brainer so why is england in this situation.

On Benefits: Life on the Dole Documentary telling the stories of people struggling to live on state welfare, something made all the more difficult by their individual battles with the bulge. Blossom lives in Brighton and has various health problems. Now she has discovered she many have cervical cancer and needs exploratory surgery - but at 25 stone, doctors have told her she is too fat to go under general anaesthetic. In Bexhill, Gina and Gary claim more than £10,000 a year in benefits. Gina has always been big but now she worries she has symptoms of diabetes. Archie near Manchester tips the scales at 26 stone and hasn't had a full-time job for six years. However, for four weeks of the year he earns money dressing up as Father Christmas
