They have a combined weight of 83 stone and claim £22,000 in taxpayer-funded benefits on the basis they are ‘too fat to work’.
Despite not working...
Asked why they don’t simply go on a diet, the jobless Chawner family who are so obese their neighbours call them ‘the telly tubbies’ insist: ‘We don’t have the time.’
WTF are they doing that makes it temporally impossible to eat less to lose some blubber? That's illogical... when I'm working long hours, I have less time to eat! These slobs don't work at all!
Mr Chawner said: ‘We love TV. It’s on from the moment we get up. Often I’m so tired from watching TV I have to have a nap.’
Ah. Watching TV all day long is very important!
And they strongly feel that they're entitled to their entitlements... and more and more entitlements:
Yet of their £22,508 a year in tax-free benefits - equivalent to a £30,000 salary - Mr Chawner said: ‘What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table. It’s not our fault we can’t work. We deserve more.’
Of course you do, you poor dears.
Of course it's all because of your genes, certainly not because you eat more than you need and get no exercise whatsoever. Never mind that you don't see fat peasant people in very poor countries where food is scarce and where they need to do plenty of physical work to survive; never you worry about why none of them ever seem to have the same genetic problem that you do.
I bet that if word gets out that fat people in Britain get a big, fat check every month for nothing but being fat, then Britain will experience increased immigration of fat people... I can see lots of lazy people getting fat just so they can move to England and just plop down, do nothing and watch the money come in the mail...
And don't be surprised to see the North American "Progressive" Liberal Left demanding welfare benefits for the fat and lazy, claiming it's a "human right"...
