Freeloading of the rest of us.

One jobless family of 12 claims almost £50,000 a year in welfare and say they are much better on the dole than working. Stephannie Fennessy and partner Ian Sharp live in a 5 bedroom rented home. Mr Sharp has not worked for 20 years due to suffering from migraines.

Each year the couple get £20,400 in housing benefit, £14,456 in cvhild tax credits, £8,320 in incapacity benefit, £4,524 child benefit and £1,200 council tax benefit. A total of £49,000 tax free.

You would need to earn £72,000 before tax to get the same amount plus travelling to work would cost you money.
