Too fat to work, and the government is to blame

Stephen Beer and Michelle Coombe, are from Plymouth, where 60 per cent of adults are overweight. The couple, who weigh more than 354 kg between them and claim $4,000 a month in benefits ($48k per year), have wed in a $6,000 ceremony – paid for by the taxpayer.

They can’t work, and it is not their fault.  Apparently.  

A couple … have blamed the Government for making it too easy for them.

Mr Beer, who has been married six times, weighs 297 kg and has not worked in five years.

He can’t stand up for more than a few minutes at a time, he relies on a council carer to get washed and dressed  – at a cost to the taxpayer of $16,000 a year – and he can only get around on a specially adapted mobility scooter for the obese.

He struggles to chop vegetables for his beloved pasta dish without becoming out of breath.

A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman said: ‘Being obese itself does not entitle someone to disability benefits, but rather it’s the associated long-term health effects.

‘We are reforming disability benefits by introducing a new face-to-face assessment and regular reviews – something missing under the old system.

‘We are also re-assessing people on incapacity benefits to see what work they can do – with the right support – rather than just writing them off on sickness benefits as happened in the past.

‘Our welfare reforms will ensure that support goes to those who need it most’.

It is people like these that cause a drive for taxes on fat, taxes on sugar.  Once again, we all have to end up suffering in our life choices because these human animals have no self control.  It’s our fault for paying them free money, and our fault for giving them poor food choices.

The solution?  Everyone is to be taxed.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
