TOSH!
Not factual and grossly inaccurately reported! The woman for example who stated she is on £1400 per month disability - that is simply not possible! The programme paints an unfair representation of people who are forced to live on disability benefits / PIP etc due to no fault of their own and who depend on it. I am referring to the real people in the world who actually need these things. I speak from experience in my own family. The program makers should be taken to task - it is discriminatory.

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. ??

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 People struggling to live on the dole while also caring for their furry friends, including 33-year-old Sheffield woman Billie, who claims more than £5,000 a year and shares her one-bedroom council home with an astonishing 32 pets. Rugby husband and wife Kim and Gary claim £900 credit per month, but with debts of at least £2,000, they face the heart-breaking choice of losing either their home or some of their five pets. And depression-sufferer Paul prefers animals to people, finding comfort in caring for his 24 pets. He receive disability and employment support, but has been battling for some time to prove he is entitled to his benefits
