"Better Off On Benefits"

Tyler Durden's picture

There is "no point" earning less in a minimum wage job is how Leanna Broderick - 20-year-old mother of two - justifies the benefits she claims adding that "she is better off on benefits" and would not get a job unless she could continue her luxury lifestyle, which includes designer outfits, holidays abroad, clubbing, lunches out and expensive gifts for her daughters Zelekah, two, and Zakirah, one. The UK's Daily Mail reports that Leanna saved GBP2,500 (~USD4,000) last year while living on GBP15,480 (~USD25,000) which she intends to spend on iPads and gold earrings for her kids - adding that "This way, taxpayers know I'm raising two well-brought-up kids." However, all is not rosy in Leanna's house as she fears next year may not be so lavish because of Government benefits cuts. "I'm not against the cuts, but only if the Government helps me find a job," she said, "In the meantime, I’ll stay on benefits and get as much as I can out of it."

 

Via The Daily Mail:

While many families are worrying about how to afford Christmas this year, one jobless single mother has revealed she receives so much in benefits she has £2,000 to spend on designer gifts, clothes and partying.

 

Mother-of-two Leanna Broderick plans to buy 20 presents for each of her children, including Burberry and Ralph Lauren outfits, iPads and gold jewellery.

 

The 20-year-old, who has never worked, claims nearly £15,500 a year in state handouts.

 

 

 

She claims she is better off on benefits and would not get a job unless she could continue her luxury lifestyle, which includes designer outfits, holidays abroad, clubbing, lunches out and expensive gifts for her daughters Zelekah, two, and Zakirah, one.

 

‘Last year, I saved £2,500 and my kids had 50 presents each, including Burberry and Ralph Lauren clothes and dolls, DVDs and CDs.

 

This year, I’ve saved £2,000 and they’ll get 20 presents each, including iPads and a new Disney-themed bedroom to share, with designer wall art and bed linen,’ she said.

 

She is also buying gold earrings for Zelekah, who has pierced ears, and keeping £300 for the sales and £150 for a New Year’s Eve outing.

 

Miss Broderick, who left school at 16 with no GCSEs, said: ‘I don’t care if people get annoyed. I don’t take advantage, I just choose to save – it’s smart.’

 

She said there was ‘no point’ earning less in a minimum wage job and having to pay for childcare on top.

 

After becoming pregnant at 17 with her on-off 23-year-old boyfriend, Miss Broderick was allocated a temporary three-bed council house.

 

When Zelekah was eight months old she considered working in care, but then became pregnant again by the same man.

 

Now split from the girls’ father, she has a new two-bedroom council flat in Croydon, South London, with a garden, which is paid for by her £111 weekly housing benefit – part of £1,290 a month total claim.

 

She said: ‘I didn’t want to miss out on my kids’ childhoods or have someone else raise them. I’m not one of those girls who gets pregnant for the benefits.’

 

The money for Christmas comes from the £250 she saves each month, which she said shows she is ‘really responsible’.

 

She adds: ‘Anyone who thinks people on benefits don’t deserve nice things is talking rubbish. I work 24/7 as a mother.

 

This way, taxpayers know I’m raising two well-brought-up kids.’

 

But she admits Christmas might not be so lavish next year because of the Government’s benefit cuts.

 

‘I’m not against the cuts, but only if the Government helps me find a job,’ she said.

 

In the meantime, I’ll stay on benefits and get as much as I can out of it.’

After all, "this is consumer economy", isn't it?

Who else would buy your shit and services?

Well folks, it is either the moochers or the workers. The way things are going, eventually one of these two groups will have to become Soylent Green. Would you eat or be eaten?

Why she need the gubmit to find her a job, no wonderful unions over across the pond?

tony bonn's picture

leanna is not impoverished from her circumstances but from the perverse incentives she has not to work....sometimes shoveling shit is the best the lord gives and it should be done to avoid penury....when people neeed help they should receive it, but paying people not to work is evil.....

for those begrudging helping the needy, fuck you!

Birds don't give a shit about the needy - feed them to the stray cats

this story is fucking nothing. i found out that illegals from nigeria are coming to the united states and getting like 10 retarded kids from the state as care giver guardians and getting $2000 per kid a month. they lasted about 12mths before the state shut them down because they werent feeding the kids/babies...then they just went back to nigeria....probably sent the relatives over next.

And also care givers for old dibilitated that they just park their drooling ass in a corner of the mall while they go shop and eat

her luxury lifestyle, which includes designer outfits [probably bought used], holidays abroad [takes the chunnel to France?], clubbing [her date pays for the club and liquor and she provides....], lunches out [at an Applebees, no liquor] and expensive gifts for her daughters Zelekah, two, and Zakirah, one [teeny tiny mink coats?].

Does she have a car, flat screen or Obama-phone?  Probably not.

This lifestyle works at 20.  It won't at 30.

Can you live in the USA on $25,000?

That two faced legs wide opened bitch is stealing from kids who work for a living. She gets, while they give.

gimme a break, this is bs

 

15k/year in London with 2 children... yeah, sure is lavish. Even with the puny rent.

Get a fucking clue - she should not be eating at all.  Kids should go to productive people, not moochers.

Oh, jesus, shit storm is imminent. There have been about 5 noteable events in the past few days. It feels like a stock right before it surges.

oops. wrong story.

This young woman has done NOTHING productive with her life {except spread her legs} and wants rewarded for it by those who have.  Getting welfare should be a contract: you get the benefits, but must get an education or trade schooling. Failure to comply will result in loss of benefits for 10 years. Tied tubes should be a componet too. But of course that is not what the whole idea behind the welfare state is all about anyway. They know better.

akak's picture

I agree 100%.

 

PS: " ... and wants to be rewarded for it ...."

Funny how often people leave out the "to be" part of the phrase.

madcows's picture

anyone for forced sterilization for the perpetual abusers?

Or, a little less agressive, free birthcontrol, and no more welfare if you have another kid while on the dole?

Cathartes Aura's picture

jeez, just lock 'em up, sell tickets for access - make $$$ off the deal. . .

don't know how that's gonna square with the "force 'em to give birth" crowd, but I'm sure youse guys can find a wyrmhole that suits you sir!

The one coming out furthest ahead is the father. Im sure there are more than a few upstanding dads out there married to the same type of material girl and footing the bill for them and this broad and not getting laid by either one - Yet somehow still feel like you've been fucked.

Best move would be to hook up with one of those single moms and rent a room to them to grab that steady rent money. Then set her up a webcam studio to whore online all day tax free into her pay pal account via 'donations'

You go girl. Nice to see someone on my side of things for a change. We have to stimulate the revolution by starving the beast. Otherwise the sheeple will go along until they are pounded into the dirt. Get that money while its hot.

This is a quote from someone on sparknotes.com about Milton's Satan.

"Fraud is an especially damaging sin because it is invisible to others, hurting them in ways they are not even aware of. Dante maintains that fraud is the worst of all sins. Milton goes almost as far in showing that leading innocent people to evil is much worse than leading yourself to evil."

So although the financial terrorists at the FED and TBTF's initiated the fraud and made it legal for this lady and her children they are involving her in it as well as the population of the United States of America.

On January 20, 2013 there will be a mass prayer to remove the fraud from the system and restore employment to those decent folks that choose to earn a living by working. I'm hoping it will dethrone the ChairSatan and his apostles.

You pay for her then.

You don't have to do that, so pay for someone outside your own family. Oops. You probably can't do that either.

I can.

Actions speak louder than words. 

The bitch who whines and excuses herself in this story is everything that is wrong in modern politics.

Cathartes Aura's picture

wow - everything!!!

 

so if we just remove her, it's fixed?

 

#winning!

It's the daily mail...a government 'paper.

AND don't forget. she will be receiving the payments for the children (enforced by the child support agency) from the father/s.

Everyone else gets a lot less...some £70/wk for a single person.

 

But then, it is the daily mail, and renowned for inaccuracy.

newengland's picture

Ignorant people will admire and follow the words of those they admire in politics and celebrities and Hollywood.

When the money runs out, the poor people will be bewildered...while those they admired in politics, celebrity and Hollywood run off with the money, and kudos.

I don't blame the ignorant. I blame the hateful whores of money: politicians, and their fans in Hollywood, the main scream media - duped by central banks, the AshkeNAZI.

Britain is doomed, and Parliament and its Whitehall don't care because they rely on the EUSSR.

Foward! And profit for bureaucrats and the political class.

Fck 'em.

MeelionDollerBogus's picture

Should we be disgusted at this lazy bitch or happy that she's so public about it, it proves us all right that welfare queens are real, are a real problem and should end welfare forever?

Holy shit. At least those who have a disability or some humility and are trying for work I think should have an option but this bitch? Should be BANNED from benefits FOR LIFE. Wilfully refusing to look for work & admitting it should be a life-time ban from benefits. Period.

newengland's picture

Agreed.

The bitch is living off kids who work for a living while she spreads her legs and begets the next generation of useless gits.

It is disgusting that the trusting ignorant young pay for a whore like her who mirrors the behavior of the celebrities and politicians she admires - those that she sees on her tax paid TV...the ones who also think they are oh so very special, just because they can scam everyone else into paying for them.

ronaldawg's picture

But you missed the REST of the story of how she is really trying and just cannot find a job no matter how hard she tries....NOT.

newengland's picture

:-)

She's a money grubbing bitch of the sort that gives hope to tax thieving Yesminster,  Whitewash and CONgress,  so that they can all get away with scamming the taxpayers and workers.

That bitch and her ilk deserve to die, as their globalist government protectors wage endless war and deprive British troops of first rate kit.

That bitch gets more protection than the honest Tom who fights for her right to choose.

And she can spend all day whoring or dealing drugs for even more tax free cash. Or write blogs or day trade futures or short currencies like soros.

Cathartes Aura's picture

so wait, let me be sure. . .

the woman in the article, she's a. . . bitch?

and as a bitch, she's responsible for

deprive British troops of first rate kit.

just wanted to be sure.

She can easily say she is a fashion consultant with no clients because of the recent downturn. Times are tough and when it turns around she'll be off the dole. And give her a phone too damnit

ItsDanger's picture

Full time job as a parasite she should say.

ZIRPThis's picture

Sad part is that this story could've just as easily ran in any US newspaper with equal believability.  Worthless, entitlement mentality, able-bodied parasites.  We deserve all the fucking bankruptcy we have coming to us.  Texas better get off its ass & secede already so the productive have somewhere to go before the shit hits the fan next year.

The 10th Amendment. Yes.  The sovereignty of states. Enough of this whore BS in individuals and central government, and Hollywood and their main scream media propagandsists.

I am sorry for other people's troubles, but the USA was founded as a Republic of responsible individuals - not a democracy, rule by mob.

When I was a young man, couples got married and STAYED married for  good reasons: The wife needed the husbands income. There were no lofty court settlements back then. And welfare {relief they called it} was hard to get, and it was meager {as it should be}. The husband stayed married for career reasons: A never married man was looked at as "defective", or worse; gay. The divorced man was looked at as a failure and/or unreliable. If he can't keep his home in line, why trust him with accounts? This was the way the old guard saw the matter. Everyone was expected to get married, and once you were, you stayed that way. That is not to say it was a perfect arrangement, it wasn't, but it was far better than what we have now.

Humans are flawed. Some more than others.

Loyalty, commitment, self-sacrifice: this makes civilisation, the future. Like you, I regret nothing because I know I did the right thing, not the easy thing.

But in the name of economic growth why not increase the handouts by stealing from the future to line the pockets of Walmart and slumlords? And better yet, more handouts so she can shop in Neiman's and vacation in Vegas?

Does anybody actually believe that it is possible to live a life of "luxury" on $25k?. Typically stories like this are written with the requisite dose of racism and poor bashing to distract all the fucking retards from what's really going on. "Hey don't worry about the billionaires that have ruined your fucking economy, look at this bitch living the high life on the dole!". Judging by the comments there are a lot of fucking retards reading this site.

The bitch has got money for doing nothing except opening her legs while many of her peers slog to make a living, and pay tax for her lazy way.

Meanwhiile, billionaire supporters of brat politicians urge more taxes that the billionaires won't pay because they have clever accountants to excuse them, and the brat politicians do too.

You are a fool or as Lenin said 'a useful idiot' or 'educated fool.'

Read the story again. The bitch is hateful, and abusing everyone, although her thinking does suit modern political slaves of central banksters...the debt drug pushers.

Cathartes Aura's picture

The bitch is hateful

the irony.

Go talk to some single mom strippers or better yet those web cam girls who can spend all day online whoring from their cushy homes. All tax free extra income of course.

$25k can go a long way when all of your living expenses are paid for you by someone else.

BTW; They too are fair game, they are just the other plate of the vise that is crushing those of us in the middle. On one end we have the rent-seeking uber wealthy, and on the other, well, the literal rent-seekers! We don't stand a snowballs chance in hell between them.
