A benefits cheat who netted £100,000 by claiming he was disabled was caught on camera doing DIY and mowing the lawn at his Sussex holiday home.

He probably goes to the pub and rants about foreigners coming over here and taking all 'our' jobs.

' I think I could rest easy

if a few benefit cheats were really Britain's Biggest Social Problem.'
Hmm, depends what you mean by a 'few'. It's also a wide scope how to be a 'benefit cheat' and there are many ways to defraud the country. Wonder how many 'cheat', even in little ways, and get away with it?

Second link finds 'article not found' buy I get the gist. From lowest paid to highest it happens. So to quote FE 'Britain's biggest social problem in a nutshell'.
