White Dee is a character from the Channel 4 shows “Benefits Street”. Until 2007 she worked for Birmingham City Council but was then sacked for stealing £13,000. Has she repaid that dosh or gone to prison? Of course not, this is Britain in 2014.
Today she rakes in £200 a week in benefits tax free and is unable to work because she is “too depressed”. Of that £200 she reckons that £120 goes on junk food for her and her family and then there are the 20 cigarettes a day. I expect they are bought “under the counter” but that will still be another £35.
She cheerfully admits that there are folks out there working really hard to clear £100 a week but White Dee is too “depressed” to join them. Heck £200 a week tax free is the equivalent of £12-13,000 a year working and so why the hell should she work. I do not blame her for choosing a life of being a scrounging parasite, I blame our welfare system for not forcing her to work. That would make her depressed.
Instead she is apparently planning to trouser £60,000 appearing on celebrity Big Brother or to run for parliament as an MP (she supports Labour natch). At least as an MP she would feel at home with the other state fund parasites and thieves at Westminster.
And so I invite you to look at this lazy lardball below and as you think about getting up early tomorrow morning to go to work, think about how she is living off your taxes. Post a suitable caption in the comment section below by next Friday:
For what it is worth my entry is:
“Another victim of the austerity programme of the wicked Tories contemplates how she is being made to suffer."

I just give up. What on earth is the point in working and paying taxes? Because I have to I guess. But some folks have an easier life. Davodreza Asasbahi-Gotti is a 37 year old Iranian who came to Britain in 2002. He lives on benefits and has his housing bills paid for via benefits. And he has now committed 40 crimes in the UK including theft and assaulting a police officer. He was set to be thrown out in 2009 but claimed it was (you guessed) a breach of his human rights … it “would breach his right for respect to private and family life.” But then it turned out that he did not – as he claimed – have a wife and two kids living here at all. That was a lie.
And so now his lawyers (paid for on legal aid ‘natch) are claiming that it is a breach of his human rights to stay here as he is a drug addict and suffers from depression as a result of “developed adjustment disorder” – whatever that is.
So to summarise. He arrived in the UK illegally. He has lived off your taxes for more than a decade. He has repeatedly lied to stay in the UK. He has committed 40 crimes and been convicted. He has never worked and is a drug addict. And yet…
He remains in the UK costing taxpayers tens of thousands of pounds via benefits, legal aid and by committing crimes. He contributes nothing to the UK and we still cannot throw him out. As you go to work tomorrow just remember that more than a third of your pay packet is going to fund this sort of nonsense.
