Welfare family of 10 hates free house
When you don’t work and keep a hand out over time, what you feel entitled to grows. Just look at nature. If you feed wild animals on a constant basis they lose the ability and drive associated with providing their own food. This is part of the reason why we legally have to refrain from feeding the wildlife in some areas. As humans the foundation isn’t much different. For as long as you are fed and clothed for free (welfare) you slowly lose the drive associated with taking care of yourself. Just look at this family, the more they demand the more outrageous this story seems, but this true story shows that governments that coddle these people are not doing them any good.
Meet Jeanne and Arnold Sube (Yes we listed her name first purposely). They have a total of 8 children and neither parent works so the total of 10 thrives off of government assistance while Arnold attends school. The free food, adult education, housing and everything else isn’t cutting it and they are demanding more to keep them satisfied.
The Subes moved to France from the UK in 2012 and they were awarded a free home bought and paid for by the British government. They were terribly unhappy with that home though stating that its simply not big enough. They were living in a 3 bedroom council house in Luton, Bedfordshire. That home was valued at about $185,000 and they were also getting roughly 60 thousand dollars annually in government benefits. Not too shabby mate!
Mr. Sube had this to say:
“Me and my family have been neglected. It’s so cramped and the conditions are terrible. Everyone is sleeping everywhere and my wife is sleeping with the baby so I am on the sofa. I am homeless in my home now.”
Maybe someone should tell Mr. Sube that its very common for big families to have to double up. Its rare to own a 6 or 7 bedroom house, even if you work 2 jobs and your wife works 1 too! But by all means continue to have kids, clearly not being able to afford them hasn’t slowed you two jack rabbits down.
The local government listened to their cries, and they were offered a five bedroom home! Happily ever after? NO. Only a 6 bedroom house would suffice. Apparently there wasn’t enough storage space! And that’s exactly what they demanded. “Terrible” is how they described their free home. So they refused take a larger home when offered, stating that hey need at least six double bedrooms for them to feel comfortable.
It gets better. But first just look at mom and dads photo. I’m sure his loafers cost a cool hundred dollars. The man clearly has taste in clothing, so I am not surprised to find that a 5 bedroom house simply just isn’t going to cut it. So the government decided to put them up at the luxurious Hampton by Hilton Hotels, which cost tax payers at least $200.00 a night, and was stated to cost at least $50,000 in hotel expenses before the family would be placed into their massive forever home castle. This fee is an excess expense already in addition to the $60,000 the that we mentioned for housing, child benefits and child tax credits. It was also reported they racked up over $20,000 in room service. Not too shabby.
This is the official statement released by the Luton Borough Council:
“Despite difficulties we managed to find Mr. and Mrs. Sube affordable housing in Luton that is large enough to house them and their eight children. After a generous offer on our part, we have done our bit and if housing is offered and declined without, what we judge, good reason, then we will offer property to another family. Not many five-bedroom council houses in Luton and they were lucky to be offered one.”
Way to make a mockery of the entitlement system. I am sure there are families as large in worse conditions. But lets reward the lazy behavior with something so many families work so hard to obtain and never quite get. Most families now a days have both parents work to make ends meet, its a hard fact in life. Is this a misuse in funds? Or should we be paying each large family to accommodate their wants? What do you think? For as much as our American welfare system is abused I have never heard of such a thing as this happening in America.
