Leanna Broderick: The Face of Britain’s Decline


Even as once great Britain’s eyes go dim, life is still good for the freeloaders who are bleeding it to death:

While many families are worrying about how to afford Christmas this year, one jobless single mother has revealed she receives so much in benefits she has :£2,000 to spend on designer gifts, clothes and partying.

Mother-of-two Leanna Broderick plans to buy 20 presents for each of her children, including Burberry and Ralph Lauren outfits, iPads and gold jewellery.

The 20-year-old, who has never worked, claims nearly :£15,500 a year in state handouts.

Why would she work?

She claims she is better off on benefits and would not get a job unless she could continue her luxury lifestyle, which includes designer outfits, holidays abroad, clubbing, lunches out and expensive gifts for her daughters Zelekah, two, and Zakirah, one. …

She said there was ‘no point’ earning less in a minimum wage job and having to pay for childcare on top.

Leanna qualified for her cushy position by dropping out of school at 16 and becoming pregnant at 17, while taking advantage of government incentives to shun employment and marriage. Her plans for the future:

“I’ll stay on benefits and get as much as I can out of it.”

What other outcome could anyone possibly expect of liberal welfare policies?
