Freeloader Building Welfare EMPIRE ➠ Just Wait Until You See How
The entitlement mentality has certainly taken a toll on the world, as we’ve clearly seen a rise in those willing to take what isn’t rightfully theirs. Unfortunately, the practice has been allowed for so long that some have begun to actually master the craft and are building empires out of “free” money.
Just that can be said of Mandy Cowie, 49, of East Sussex, England, who has been living on benefits for the past three decades and doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. She has 10 children from five different fathers, earning her approximately a whopping £22,000-a-year ($34,000) in state handouts, according to Daily Mail.
Along with all this, the mother-of-10, covered in £2,000 ($3,000) worth of tattoos, certainly isn’t earning herself the “mother of the year award” after revealing what goes on inside her home. According to Cowie herself, she’s given her children – some as young as 13 – cigarettes and states that drinking alcohol is a frequent sight among the family.
Perhaps the most repugnant aspect in all this though is her attitude. In a recent interview with Daily Star, she stated, “Ten kids and full of tattoos mate. So what if I’m on the effing dole mate – don’t like it, eff off. I had my first one at 18 and my last one at 36, and I’ve told them I want 50 grandkids before I die.”
Her children are following after her nicely, as they too don’t work and simply sponge up taxpayer dollars, and even worse yet, they too are breeding more of the same. In all, Cowie already has 16 grandchildren, and there’s apparently more to come — as previously noted, she wants 50 grandchildren in total.
Her grand plan? To become Britain’s biggest benefits family – a welfare dynasty of sorts.
“People may be shocked that I’ve been on benefits for so long but I don’t care. I can’t work because of the kids, and while the pregnancies weren’t planned, I love having a big family,” she said during a later interview with Closer magazine. “I probably wouldn’t get a job that would pay as much as I get now anyway. People might judge but if it’s there on offer, who wouldn’t take it?”
The answer is an honest, hardworking person. That’s who wouldn’t take benefits intended for those with a true need. More
