For too long now the rich and super rich of the UK have been allowed to milk the benefits system when they have no financial need to claim them. They only claim them because they can. Poverty to so many of these people is not being able to have an extra holiday in a year or upgrade the Mercedes. Yes, a disabled child can mean extra expenses to a family, I am not disputing that. What I am disputing is when parents can clearly afford to pay for their disabled child's upbringing, without becoming poverty stricken, yet they still insist on receiving non means tested benefits just because they are available to them. In these days of financial disaster, it is financial lunacy to allow this to go on. Please support this petition to get the perspective of benefit abuse correct and make it right.
