Gemma Abbey, Eurovision singer, guilty of false claim for £67,000 benefits. Suspended sentence.

Our thanks to Ray for this. An extract:

A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman said: “Most people claiming benefits are honest, but there are the unscrupulous minority who cheat taxpayers’ money out of our welfare system and divert it away from those who really need it.

“People pretending to live alone to get benefits is one of the most common types of benefit fraud, and this case shows our investigators are bringing criminals to justice.

Ha. If this is ‘justice’, I’m a Chelsea bun. What a waste of taxpayer’s money, bringing the case to trial. What lesson do women learn from this case, and the large number of cases like it? If you’re a woman, you can ‘pretend to live alone to get benefits’, and you won’t be punished.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    If I stole £67,000 from a bank, (for example) I imagine I’d be in for more than a suspended sentence.

    P.S.
    Then she had the stupidity to post her WEDDING PICTURES on facebook!

    That alone has surely got to be worth 10 years..
