UK benefits culture

Lord Sugar has called for an end to Britain's benefits culture, claiming Eastern European immigrants see the country as 'the land of milk and honey'. The Labour peer said hard-working people found abuse of the benefits system 'demoralising' and that it needed to be 'sorted out'.

Maybe he's thinking of Cheryl Prudham, mother of 11, who says 'it's easy to claim benefits', and plans bumper Christmas spending £4,000 of taxpayers' cash on children's presents including iPads and gold bracelets. She insists she has a right to the benefits, and it comes after the family enjoyed two-week holiday in Menorca this summer.
