Some people always find someone else to blame their problems on and of course they’re never satisfied.
This family is using taxpayers’ dime until they’re good and happy.
Arnold and Jeanne Sube moved their entire family of 8 children all the way from France to the UK in 2012. The move was so Arnold could study at the University of Bedfordshire to become a mental health nurse.
Now the family of 10 is living in a three bedroom home provided by the state. However they feel that the house is too small. Arnold talked about the supposed unlivable conditions.
Me and my family have been neglected. it’s so cramped and the conditions are terrible. Everyone is sleeping everywhere and my wife is sleeping with the baby so I am on the sofa. I am homeless in my home now
Arnold continued on, complaining that some of his daughters share a single bedroom with two single beds inside. Of course, that’s not very out of the ordinary for a family of four or five with parents actually paying for their home.
Even when the family was offered a five bedroom home, the family still managed to complain about it. They demanded that they would need at least six double bedrooms. It’s hard to sympathize with a family when they’re demanding things from welfare when hardworking families live on much less.
Unable to find a home that the family would accept, British welfare instead placed the family in a Hampton by Hilton Hotel. The cost for tax payers? $200 a night! The family’s stay has already cost British taxpayers $50,000. Ouch.
A fancy hotel stay on taxpayers’ dime isn’t all this family is enjoying, though. They’re also getting $60,000 in housing and child benefits and they’re still earning child tax credits!
Arnold has even gone ahead and hired a few lawyers so that he can get enough from tax payers to buy a house he feels is large enough for his family.
A Luton Borough Council spokesperson issued this statement on the matter of this family.
Despite difficulties, we managed to find Mr. and Mrs. Sube affordable housing in Luton that is large enough to house them and their eight children. After a generous offer on our part, we have done our bit and if housing is offered and declined without, what we judge, good reason, then we will offer property to another family.
The family was incredibly lucky to be offered a five bedroom house as there are very few in the area where they live! Still it wasn’t enough for this family and their ridiculous expectations.
It’s not hard to see why so many reasonable people find this family very selfish and ungrateful..
A few readers expressed bewilderment that a family could be so ungrateful.
“Soon they will get nothing.”
“It’s likely that [you’re] correct “soon they will get nothing.” Unfortunately, I feel that SOON should’ve arrived the second they had the audacity to turn down the first house! They’ve since been offered another!!!! Ingrates! They are now undeserving in my mind and should’ve already been told YOUR FREE RIDE IS OVER AND NOW U GET NOTHING!!!!”
Others blamed the government continuing to offer them different houses.
“The government needs their head examined. Greed on the backs of hard working people. Maybe they should stop having children they can’t afford and expecting others to pay for it.”
And one reader seems to have really hit the nail on the head
“Freeloaders just taking the government for a ride. WHy are they still having children and why isn’t the father working? This is why all governments are in such bad shape. People learn real fast how to scam the system and this is great example of a scamming family.”
What do you think? Is this family being reasonable? Should the government refuse to house them anymore? Be sure to tell us below!
