Can't afford 4 kids, don't have 4 kids

simples.

#3
Didn't like the poor family this week, seemed like they were on the take.

The mother was shocking, putting herself before the children sums her up.

Just speaking the truth, just cos you don't agree with it doesn't mean it's narrow minded...

Truth is subjective so from a narrow-minded perspective it could be seen as 'the truth'.

Nice pic by the way.

im watching the + 4, well shocked

why keep giving them money!

I saw a bit of this too, the part near the end
What idiots to give that family £2000, they no way deserved it as they just spent the lot on a ******** Laptop when they already have a desktop computer, i also saw they spent £30 on a mouse even, not exactly poor are they

Plus £400+ a week income that they get is really high, more than what me and all my family earns in a week, and i work 50 hours a week myself.

Also a big Lol at not giving a **** about thier kid and buying him a game that doesn't work, i wonder what his christmas would be like, laptop for me, big tv for me, PS3 for me. oh and a used desk of playing cards with the 5 of Hearts missing for you.

Watching it now, they have just got the 2nd cheque. The mother is selfish without a doubt, and i hope she feels guilty.

They got benefits of about £200 a week right?
Well that's what my mother said as i missed the first half
#18
Im not watching, but guessing they are showing people that are not well off and on benefits?
If they are..... benefits are a livable income if used wisely. I have been unfortunate in the past and have had to go onto benefits for a short amount of time, it annoys me that people claim poverty when it is a resonable amount to live from.

Now comes the bit where you tell me its not what the programme is about at all :oops:

Thats ridiculous.

The mother should be out working if their life sucks that much.

That's what annoys me about these types of people, no self respect and wiling to live on handouts.
#20
Could someone who sky plussed it confirm something for me?

When they got their first lot of free money they wrote out a budget on paper, i only saw it for a split second but I'm almost sure it said "DVD recorder / HD - £xxx" next to all the other things they were paying out (bills etc)

Not really a necessity as such

Yeah its a disgrace, waste of taxpayers money.
She said the laptop was to start an online business selling "handmade face creams" or something.
but she wanted to buy a webcam.
Erm, blatant scam to get a free laptop actually lol

Totally, people who are fit to work should do so.

Why is it that all of these people have dreams of starting their own business? They can't even work for someone else, never mind themselves :roll:

so far 2 x £2000 and a trip to spain
#25
They got £2000 x2

(wonder what the limit you can get given is before it messes with your social money :whistling:)
#26
It may be a gross generalisation, but all these people seem to live in poorly decorated dirty homes. Fair enough, money may be tight, but CLEAN YOUR HOUSE ffs!

So what did they do with the other £2000?

The little boy is well spoken, i hope he goes far.

When you have kids, I believe you should always put them first.Even if that means going without yourself!!! I was in tears, how happy was that wee boy in his own room :thumbsup: :oops:

The thing is though, i haven't even got a HD box, or a Sky plus box. Despite earning plenty and being comfortable, i know i don't really need them.

Me and the missus don't have kids yet, but the thought of those two being hungry and generally sad while looking at their parents watching high definition television made us feel so sorry for them

parents typical scrounging scum,surely there are better more deserving families

Don't be so judgemental man! We can only guess her life story due to her actions on here. Yes she's mega selfish, yes she's greedy and yes i believe she was in it for what she can get, but we (i assume you ain't) ain't that hard up so can't judge too deeply.

I call it as I see it LLM, there's always a way out of any given situation. Some people seem to if not enjoy, certainly accept their lot and live their lives in squalor.

I do agree, but your last comment "40 regal a day does to your looks....

no wonder they're poor.." well has she admitted this is why they are hard up? I don't wanna row about it, i just cant see hopw you can be judgemental...
On a lighter note, that young boy is a credit to her, i wish him all the luck in the world, bless him.
suspended#39
I just slo-mo'd the part where they write the DVD HD recorder, and they wrote £150 and later on a 50 pack of blank DVD's, shocking really
and it get's worse, a pause at the PCWorld checkout shows the Laptop at £450, there are like thousands of laptops cheaper than that

Yeah, I am judgemental. If I was so p*ss poor that I had bailiffs at my door, I'd be cutting out the fags etc and possibly considering getting my lazy wife out to work.

I'm sorry, but people like this deserve all they get. Take the kids into care, cut their benefits and let them get on with it.
