Family 'Too Fat to Work' Collects Annual $30,000 Disability

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

A British family of four, who receives more than $30,000 a year in benefits because they are “too fat to work,” says they deserve more money, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.

The Chawners, who live in Blackburn, England, have a combined weight of 1,160 pounds.

“What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table,” Philip Chawner, 53, told the newspaper. “It’s not our fault we can’t work. We deserve more.”

Philip and his wife Audrey, 57, weigh 336 pounds each. Daughters Emma, 19, and Samantha, 21, weigh in at 236 pounds and 252 pounds, respectively.

Audrey Chawner, who has epilepsy and asthma as a result of being overweight, told “Closer” magazine her family’s weight is genetic and they cannot afford to eat healthier.

Philip Chawner has Type 2 diabetes and was eligible for gastric band surgery until he developed a heart condition.

“I’m a student and don’t have time to exercise,” Emma Chawner said. “We all want to lose weight to stop the abuse in the street, but we don’t know how.”

Bollocks

The Uk government has spent millions on new sport facilities and health programmes. and if your a student you should have even more time than someone who is in work, clearly as they live in Blackburn I am not suprised by this.

Thats funny because socialism provided me with a state education and healthcare, it also allowed me not to have to work in during my A levels before I went to university, it also allowed me to be able to afford university through grants and no repayable loans otherwise I would have had to take a trade and not pursue my goals in higher education.

Me too, as a matter of fact in all seriousness I work with a lady so big they had to put together two cubicles to fit her in. These folks are just lazy and looking for hand outs.

No it is their fault, but they won't be getting any extra benefits for being fat.

But they're already getting benefits for not being able to work due to their "obesity". I'd call that catering a lazy a$$.
