Mother of nine who claims 38,000 in benefits to receive 1,400 more after falling pregnant again
The Daily Mail ^ | April 24, 2014 | Amanda Williams

A mother-of-nine who claims £38,000 a year in handouts and demanded a bigger council house for her huge family is pregnant again - this time with twins.

Cheryl Prudham, 32, and her husband Robert, 29, are set to receive at least a further £1,400 in handouts when the baby girls arrive.

Mrs Prudham said she will 'not be made to feel guilty' for having children' as she and her husband both work part-time.

Last year the couple, from Sittingbourne, Kent - who were living in a three-bedroom council house at the time - said they were entitled to a bigger house, because they both work part-time.

Eventually the couple were able to arrange a house swap and they moved to a £200,000 property, also in Kent, the Sun reports.

But the expectant mother is still not happy with the swap - organised via Facebook with a family looking to downsize - because she had to move away from her preferred area of Sittingbourne.

She admits her huge brood were not especially planned because she and her husband do not like using contraception.

Speaking after her bid for a new house last year, she said: 'In the past I have been on contraception but I got pregnant with the coil and the pill just doesn't settle well with me.

'We don't use condoms and me and Rob have never talked about it.

'I did rely on benefits before but I am motivated to be more than a mother.'

And she admitted: 'I was surprised by the cost of our kids in the end.'

Maybe the City should just buy them a big screen TV and tell them to get another hobby...

Surprised at the cost of the kids?? Why? You’re not paying for them — productive British taxpayers are.

This is selfishness and gluttony. Entitled to others paying for your large, ever-increasing brood. Look at the lessons those kids are learning, they’ll wind up being like mom and dad.

Not only that, she wants control of what neighborhood she lives in yet doesn’t want to be the one footing the bill.

The only surprising thing in this story is that they are not Muslim. I would bet that there are many, many large Muslim families in Britain on the dole.

Is it THAT hard to avoid sex?

There are tons of wanting spouses here in the U.S. that can give you pointers.

But it’s not allowed to criticize those families.

” - - - Falling Pregnant, those Brits are so funny.
Honey! ...I’ve fallen pregnant and can’t get up! - - - “

The Merry old England expression “Falling Pregnant” usually means that the woman fell on her back, nine months before.

“Getting up” is the man’s problem.

That's probably the reason this got past the censors because their surname doesn't sound Muslim.

There are two ways to raise large broods successfully even with modest means: (a)everybody works and pitches in or (b)do the kids and a deserving couple a favor and adopt them out.

If she's unwilling to take (a), then she ought to be compelled to take (b).

The couple both recently started working 20 hours per week a week as carers. Neither pays any income tax because their earnings fall below the minimum threshold - earning them just under £1,400 a month.

They then receive £400 child tax credits, topped up by £70 working tax credits, and their £123 a week rent is footed by the council.

They already reportedly receive £7,326 a year in child benefit.


What a SCAM. A few hours of work a week and all is paid for. This is happening here too, and if the progressive disease isn't eradicated it will reach levels we cannot dream of. I am tired of working anywhere from 40 to 80 hours a week only to subsidize vermin like this.

From the article):" 'We don't use condoms and me and Rob have never talked about it. "

Obviously ,.. they don't do much talking , or not enough talking !
