    Default £2k a week benefit.

    This is how labour ruined britain (one of many ways, of course)

    "David Cameron has told MPs it is an "outrage" that a family was able to claim £2,000 a week in benefits to live in a luxury townhouse.
    He said housing benefits had got "completely out of control" under Labour but the new Government would impose a cap next year.
    At Prime Minister's Questions he said many people would regard the new £400-a-week limit as "very, very generous".
    It was reported last week that Abdi and Sayruq Nur and their seven children moved into their three-storey property in Kensington, central London, at a cost of £8,000 a month".

    This is absurd. WTF?

    The whole benefits system requires overhauling, there are way too many people living a life of luxury on benefits with no will or want to gain employment.

    I'm annoyed at present. I haven't had a review since 1997, since when I've got a lot worse and need a lot of support, especially overnight, from my wife, who fortunately used to be a Care Assistant. She never complains, insists although I was fit and healthy when we got together she's in it for the long haul.
    I tried to get her recognised and filled in a multiple page form listing everything they asked. Made me wait over 3 months, then basically wrote back saying they don't believe me, or the GP, or the hospital Consultant - but I can appeal, if I want to wait another 6 months

    wot youve got to respect that theres families that have more than 3
    children and a mixture of both the opposite sex and of the age of 16+ that
    still live at home and by law have to have their own bedroom which in need
    a bigger home and the councils mostly have 3 bedroom houses and a limited
    of 4 bedroom ones which in this case they have to go to a private landlord
    to get the relevant property and believe me its very diffcult


    ok i respect that theres families out there that are living a luxury on benefits
    but were most certainly not.

    The best advice I can give you m8 is for you to get a good suntan, change your name by deed poll to Abdul and convert to Islam, bet you will get all the benefits going and more.

    I'm tempted, first I'll let the advisory place and maybe SSAFA have a try.

    This is such a waste, kensington central london of all places.... the only people living in a £2mil house in kensington should be those who earn it themselves. Keep welfare costs down be relocating these claimants to a cheaper area, it isn't rocket science.

    On the upside, the tories are putting a stop to to this stupid waste. Won't be until next year 2011 though. What retard allowed this to happen in the first place, beats me.
    Big shake up to the broken system is coming
