A terrifying look into our not-too-distant future

If ever there was a story that exemplified why we have the FAIL! Britannia category, this sure as fucking hell is it:

The Davey family's £815-a-week state handouts pay for a four-bedroom home, top-of-the-range mod cons and two vehicles including a Mercedes people carrier.

Father-of-seven Peter gave up work because he could make more living on benefits.

Yet he and his wife Claire are still not happy with their lot.

With an eighth child on the way, they are demanding a bigger house, courtesy of the taxpayer.

Go ahead and keep reading, because it just goes downhill from there, if you can believe that.

If you don't believe that this is where Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the Democrats want to lead us, there's a bridge in Brooklyn that I could sell you for the low, low cost of a few trillion bucks, all while structuring the deal in a manner that will totally reduce your debt over the next decade. Even though your ass is broke.

Yeah.
