A woman who claimed over £500,000 worth of benefits which she was not entitled to was caught dancing to Michael Jackson’s song Bad despite claiming she could not move her arms. Maribel Milligan, 53, from West Cornforth, County Durham, was jailed for three years after falsely claiming £539,907 over a period of 11 years. Milligan, who was claiming seven different benefits, was captured on video dancing (pictured, left). Judge Howard Crowson told Milligan (right): ‘You were sitting clapping your hands and clicking your fingers in time with the music having told us your arms were essentially useless.’
WE ARE SUPPOSSED TO HAVE A WELFARE CAP OF £25,000 WHICH EQUATES TO OVER £30,000 MORE THAN MOST GRADUATES EARN. YET MANY STILL GET MORE THAN CAP. THE CAP SHOULD BE £18,000 AND NO MORE AND EVERYONE SHOULD GET NO MORE THAN CAP IF UNEMPLOYED. THEY SHOULD ALSO BE FITTED WITH CHIP TO PREVENT ID FRAUD.
