Systems like welfare are supposed to be in place to help people through rough times, not become the primary source of income.
However, as we all know, many of the people on these programs not only use welfare when they could get work, they abuse the system.
The case of Anna Broom, a resident of Gillingham (Kent) is the perfect example of such a case.
Jobless for 14 Years
Broom has not worked a single day since she was 19 years old.
When she was 33, she and her fiancé wanted a traditional wedding, but they had no money to pay for it.
Broom wanted a “traditional English wedding and party in a castle.”
Some of her demands were for a traditional church ceremony, a horse and carriage, designer dress, and of course, champagne for her guests.
The costs for a wedding such as this were estimated to be more than £10,000, all of which she wanted her government to supply!
Keep in mind, over the course of the last decade-plus, Broom reportedly received more than £100,000 in benefits already!
Oh, by the way, she also wants a traditional honeymoon after her wedding, so tack on another £2,000 to her bill.
Since Broom has been on her butt for 14 years at the time of her request, she had gained considerable weight, which is what she blamed her inability to work.
Forget work-from-home jobs or losing weight because that was clearly not in her plans.
Instead, she stated, “I deserve a fairy-tale church wedding and a party in a castle – but there’s no way I could afford it on benefits and I can’t work because I’m overweight.”
Her liberal ideals went into overdrive, stating a wedding such as this is her right!
Broom stated, “I want the taxpayer to fund my £10,000 dream wedding – it’s a basic human right to be a bride.
“I don’t see why I should have a small wedding at a registry office – I wouldn’t be able to fit in all my guests and a church wedding is far more romantic.”
Broom went on to say that she is “stuck in a rut,” but getting married would give her the motivation she needs to exercise and lose weight.
