    Family who are 'too fat to work' say 22,000 worth of benefits is not enough


    A family of four with a combined weight of 83 stone say they are "too fat to work" and need more than the 22,000 they currently receive in benefits.

    Philip Chawner, 53, and his 57-year-old wife Audrey weigh 24st. Their daughter Emma, 19, weighs 17st, while her older sister Samantha, 21, weighs 18st.
    The family from Blackburn claim 22,508 a year in benefits, equivalent to the take-home pay from a 30,000 salary.


    The Chawners, haven't worked in 11 years, claim their weight is a hereditary condition and the money they receive is insufficient to live on.
    Mr Chawner said: "What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table. It's not our fault we can't work. We deserve more."
    The family claim to spend 50 a week on food and consume 3,000 calories each a day. The recommended maximum intake is 2,000 for women and 2,500 for men.
    "We have cereal for breakfast, bacon butties for lunch and microwave pies with mashed potato or chips for dinner," Mrs Chawner told Closer magazine.
    "All that healthy food, like fruit and veg, is too expensive. We're fat because it's in our genes. Our whole family is overweight," she added.
    Each week, Mr and Mrs Chawner, who have been married for 23 years, receive 177 in income support and incapacity benefit. Mrs Chawner is paid an extra 330-a-month disability allowance for epilepsy and asthma, both a result of being overweight.
    Mr Chawner gets 71 a month after developing Type 2 diabetes because of his size. He was on a waiting list for a gastric band last year, but a heart condition made the operation unsuitable. Their daughter Samantha receives 84 in Jobseekers' Allowance each fortnight while Emma, who is training to be a hairdresser, gets 58 every two weeks under a hardship fund for low-income students.
    Emma, said: "I'm a student and don't have time to exercise" she said "We all want to lose weight to stop the abuse we get in the street, but we don't know how."

    This may sound cold, evil, and downright wrong. I say drop em all off in the middle of the mountains and see if they survive long. Or execute them on spot, and use their blubber in lamps(like whale blubber).

    I believe in each person being a functioning part of society, and if they hinder it, or are useless(outside of cause) then I cant feel any sympathy or empathy towards them.

    If man lost his Arms in an automobile accident, yes we should help him. A man loses legs in war, definitly should support him. Cancer is beaten by a person, but it cripples them so much from operations and such they cant live without help, I say help em.

    If you are a crack head, an obese person(save for the 2% that ARE MEDICAL reasons), or criminal. As far as I see it support should be given from the business end of a Kalashnikov.

    I know...sounds evil...but its the only way a nation would ever grow any.

    Got to love socialism!......no serious you have to like it, you have no choice, what you don't like it??, well maybe you will learn to like it after spending a few months in "re-education camp".

    Perhaps the government should just cut those fat bastards benefits to nothing. The way I see it, after a few days of no electricity, and no food, they will either find the inner strength to conquer their "adversity" and get a job, or they will get their fat asses outside and plant a garden.

    I lost my job 4 friggin months ago. And seem to have experienced some of the worst luck and issues life could throw since then. I am just now making some petty cash. About 650$ so far this month...and its almost over.... doing roofing as a salesman for a company now. I am still looking for jobs to help out. And I am hardworking if I may say so(i earn promotions Fast), and yet people like that can complain about not making enough by being useless. If you guys wanna start a pot, for 100 bucks a pop plus travel fees I will solve this issues... LOL

    just like obese people that eventually become bedridden...they have to have an "enabler". without them these people couldn't be obese. cut the fuking cord already. being fat might be hereditary but being a disgusting fat slob that need a wheel chair the size of a small car to get around is not! limiting their funds or taking it away would actually help them more by losing weight and staying alive.

    People who are genetically bigger, arent usually disgustingly fat(you can tell the differance). They can eat healthy, but maintain a husky build. But it contains some kinda feeling of healthy when you look at them. 95% of fat people today, just need to be fed only water and a very small amount of crackers and a protein shake daily for a year or two.

    That would have to be close range, and would have to be reloaded. I would rather not waste too much time... A 5lb D-3 charge would clear out all those who are in 150'x150' area.
