Our thanks to Michael for this. The start of the piece:
A divorcee who swindled £26,000 in benefits after banking a £250,000 settlement from her ex-husband has been ordered to pay back every penny she stole.
In plain English, she isn’t being punished for her crime. How amazing it must be to have the genitals necessary that if you’re found guilty of theft, you need only pay back what you’ve stolen. But of course we’ve published many stories of female thieves who weren’t required to even pay back what they stole, yet escaped prison.
The end of the piece:
Amiee Parkes, defending, said: “What triggered this is an acrimonious divorce from her partner. [J4MB: She clearly cannot bear any responsibility for her actions.]
“When she first made this claim it wasn’t fraudulent, and she was advised to make it by the domestic violence unit. [J4MB: Classic gynocentric defence. It was legal at first, so it shouldn’t have become illegal later. Society is so hard on women!]
“She didn’t know she was going to get the sum of money she did, but accepts she did not declare that or the property in Kingston-upon-Thames bought from the proceeds of the divorce.” [J4MB: How could she not ‘accept’ that? It’s presented as a mitigating factor, because vagina.]
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.
