"His life is ruined, firstly because of his health and secondly because of a conviction of this nature. He will probably never work again."

So he lied about not being able to work, and since they caught him on it, he'll have a hard time getting a job?

Do you really have to point out that a 5-bedroom house is detached? What a monster row of row houses that would be.

I know a guy just like that. Worked for years in construction and yes had a problem with his back. Was diagnosed, after some coaxing, with neurofibromyaglia (sic). Sued the company he was working for, got a big settlement. Drives around in a new vehicle with a wheel chair/disabled permit and parks as close as possible to wherever.
He's more agile and able than 90% of you reading this. It's disgusting, and wrong that he treats the system like this. No wonder there's so much fraud and the premiums for workman's comp and insurance are so damn high. What can you do though?

This guy is human scum, but the Wall Streeters who swindled the public out of trillions are heroes.

Snooker table.
I still hate stories like this. Just adds more ammunition to get rid of benefits for people who actually need it in an attempt to flush these guys out.

So you justify bad and illegal behavior just because others have behaved bad?

I never justified anything. But thanks for trying!

"Thousands of pounds of disability aids which he claimed he needed were found discarded, with 30 unopened 500ml bottles of liquid morphine seized from his bedroom."

Is it a bad sign that those all unopened bottles upset me the most?

"She was investigated during the probe into her son, though the cases were not linked in the end."

There's something hilariously subtle about that comment.
