My Gran has just telephoned me to say that the Daily Express newspaper has an article in it about people arriving to UK from other countries, applying AND GETTING all sorts of disability benefits then returning to their countries.

They do not work even one day in the UK AND we continue to send them over a £100 a week even although they do not live in UK.

Haven't been able to get out today for a paper but now shaking my fist in the air and scrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreaming!

    But the only people free from accountability are those, mostly former migrants, who have left these shores and receive these benefits abroad.

    It's in the daily express so it's probably not true, that paper is full of negative stuff and constant stories about poor old Madeline McCane asylum seekers and princes Dianna, well that and the latest weather disater that is coming to town taxation MSRA Muslim terrorists street gang shooting and stabbings, the only thing I read in it and believe is the TV page.

    I have just taken the government's online test for being British, and failed.

    Some of the questions were about how long schools are open for, failed that.
    Some are about the minutiae of the EU, (so much for asking about Britain), failed that too.

    If I can't pass the test for being British, then I must be able to claim for everything.
    Any problems, start screaming about the nasty gov being unkind to non-British people and they will give me every handout without question.

    I think I may stay after all, (and put in a few dozen claims).
