From Chuck Shepherds News of the Weird:

-- The Fabulous British Government "Safety Net": Heather Frost, 36, and mother of 11, is getting a brand-new, specially designed house through the Tewkesbury (England) Borough Council, which deemed inadequate the duplex that the family had been using at taxpayer expense for five years. Frost had complained that she needed larger quarters because one daughter now owns a horse and needs to stable it (and, said a stable worker, had almost acquired two more horses, but that deal fell through).[Daily Telegraph (London), 2-19-2013]

Nanny State..

We the people are entitled to everything.

We need not work.

Work is a 4 letter word we needn't use.
