It would be cheaper to have her lose her house and put her in homeless accommodation. The council/government do not pay your mortgage for you.
I call shenanigans. If this story is even real, which I highly doubt, there is something massive missing from it. Contrary to popular belief, our government does not give people this much money, and definitely not towards housing benefit. Especially with the introduction of ATOS.
I too call BS on this.
Anyone else noticed a lot of anti benefit stories lately?
It's because the government is trying to stop anyone showing any sympathy to people on welfare when benefit cuts start making people homeless!
