Taxpaying Already Paying For Nine Kids – Now There Are Two More Mouths To Feed

A mother-of-nine who claims over £38,000 of taxpayers’ money a year is set to see that amount rise with the arrival of twins.

Cheryl and Robert Prudham caused outrage when they demanded a larger council house for their family and were awarded a taxpayer-funded super-home with five bedrooms at a cost of £200,000.

The free-loading Prudhams are good at spending your money too – they took their children out of school for a £5,000 sunshine holiday in Menorca, much of which Cheryl spent smoking by the pool despite being pregnant.

With the arrival of twins Lacey-May and Lexi-Rose seven weeks ago, annoyed locals are wondering whether the Prudhams will get an even bigger house at their expense.

One Gravesend local fumed: “It’s disgraceful how they keep having children and expect taxpayers to foot the bill. Hard-working families struggle and only have a couple of kids because they can’t afford any more. No doubt their new house will be too small now.”

The Prudhams now have five children together; besides the twins, they have Leon, four, Lenny, two and Lainey, one. Cheryl also has six children from previous relationships: George, 14, Jack, 13, Caitlin, nine, Maisie, eight, Millie, six and Madison, five.

Before the twins' arrival, the Prudhams had nine children between them

A spokesman for the Taxpayers’ Alliance, Andy Silvester, said: “There has to be a point where the state stops paying for people’s children,” but with nine children, the Prudhams received £400 a week in child tax credits and the council foot the bill of £123 per week for their rent.
