When one debates this issue with the political left, the very people who love the idea of creating mass welfarism and the dependency that comes with it, they like to deny that people like this really exist. But they do .. and in significant numbers!
A Benefits cheat who claimed he could barely walk was discovered working as a fitness instructor at a council leisure centre.
Alan Lawson, 58, pocketed more than £80,000 in eight years after he suffered a back injury that meant he could only walk with a stick. But when his pain started to ease and he was able to work, he failed to tell the authorities. Lawson, 58, of Bishop Auckland, Co Durham, was jailed for eight months at Durham Crown Court for failing to notify a change in circumstances and making a false statement to get benefits.
Just one more of generation idle ripping off the taxpayer!
