The UK tabloids splurt out some fabulous examples of beneficiary bludging. ¬†The UK has a plague of bludging immigrants, this one from Latvia is special.¬† Different fathers and all. ¬†While working as a “self employed” cleaner, there is no way she will ever be self-supporting with ten kids from SOCK.
Latvian Linda Kozlovska, 31, arrived in Britain with three of her children in 2008 and moved into a council-maintained three-bedroom house.
Four years later, however, the single mother says she is unhappy living there ‚Äď because she has had three more children and four others have moved over from Latvia.
‚ÄėI have ten children living here with me,‚Äô she said. ‚ÄėI‚Äôm the only adult. I am on the council waiting list, but we‚Äôre still here.
‚ÄėThey don‚Äôt have a big enough house.¬† I want a bigger house. I don‚Äôt like it here. When we moved in it had bed bugs.‚Äô
The neighbours have had enough.
Another neighbour, Neil Blanchard, 39, said: ‚ÄėThis kind of thing is beyond belief. If they want a bigger house they should have to earn it like everybody else.
‚ÄėIt is not for the taxpayer to pick up the bill for a bigger house.‚Äô
And the clincher – Latvia does not have nearly as generous welfare. ¬†Because they know what happens.
The amount is also much higher than the ¬£9.26 per child she would receive each month if she were still living in Latvia.
There, couples can claim up to ¬£1,865 per baby, but payments dip after children reach 18 months.
So I ask, how many children should the taxpayer be asked to fork out for?
