A benefits family who moaned about their four-bed home have been moved to a £425,000 dream house.Arnold Sube, his wife and eight kids have cost taxpayers £238,000 in four years. His move to Milton Keynes, Bucks, caused outrage. The family’s detached pad – in a leafy street dotted with Porsches and Mercedes – has a master bedroom with ensuite, and three further double bedrooms.
There is a dining room, a utility room off the kitchen and an integral garage, plus gardens and a driveway. It should all be enough to keep any father happy, even one who once claimed to The Sun his family was being “neglected” when their previous four-bedroom home felt too cramped.
Mr Sube and wife Jeanne are on benefits adding up to £44,000 a year and the family has cost taxpayers a total of £238,000 since arriving in Britain from France in 2012. Yesterday several neighbours said they thought it “unfair” the family now did not have to pay a penny towards their £1,200 a month rent.
One woman said: “If you have eight kids you should not expect to be bailed out. The father has played the system and won. They are extremely fortunate. This is a lovely estate. Parents are desperate to move here.”
