... yet still some like to complain about how much Polish people cost their economy.

Obese people are costing the taxpayer £4.4 million a year in incapacity benefits.

The payments are picked up by almost 2,000 people classed too fat to work, the Department of Work and Pensions has disclosed.

Found this article on yahoo uk.news.yahoo/pressass/20071119/tuk-2-000-people-too-fat-to-work-6 323e80_1.html

'nail disfunction' claiming benefits too.

Ah the dreaded fungal brain infection. One day I intend to claim a benefit for something. Perhaps I might get a child allowance? That might not work though because I would have to feed it etc.
