Family on £42,000 a year benefits because they are 'better off unemployed'

The couple intend to expand their family by another seven children, bringing the total to 14 Photo: GETTY IMAGES

Peter Davey, 35, a father of seven, gave up work in administration nine years ago because he realised he would be better off on state handouts.

He and his wife Claire, 29, who is seven months pregnant, believe they deserve their £815-a-week benefit cheque and are open about feeling no guilt that they live at the expense of the taxpayer.

Their home, a semi-detached house on the Isle of Anglesey, is complete with 42 inch flat screen television, Sky TV at £50 a month, a computer and three expensive games consoles, as well as four mobile phones.

The family also run a Mercedes people carrier and an 11 seater minibus.

However, they still feel there is little to be grateful for.

Mrs Davey, who has never had a full-time job, told Closer magazine: "It's hard. We can't afford holidays and I don't want my kids living on a council estate and struggling like I have.

"I don't feel bad about being subsidised by people who are working. I'm just working with the system that's there.

"If the government wants to give me money, I'm happy to take it. We get what we're entitled to. I don't put in anything because I don't pay taxes, but if I could work I would.

"We couldn't afford to care for our children without benefits, but as long as they have everything they need, I don't think I'm selfish."

Mr and Mrs Davey met 13 years ago in a pub and had their first child, Jessica, a year later.

They then went onto have Jade, ten, Jamie-Anne, eight, Harriet, six, Adele, four, the couple's only son Tie, three, and Mercedes, two.

The couple now receive weekly payments of £439 in income support, £87 in housing benefits, £99 child benefit, £18 council tax benefit.

That is on top of a carer's allowance of £53 and a disability living allowance of £119 to support their son who suffers with a skin disorder.

"It cost too much to carrying on working as we were actually better off unemployed," said Mr Davey.

The family still ensure they do not go without, splashing out on four presents for each child on their birthdays and £2,000 for family gifts at Christmas.

And they intend to expand their family by another seven children, bringing the total to 14.

"I've always wanted a big family – no one can tell me how many kids I can have whether I'm working or not," said Mrs Davey.

The full feature appears in Closer Magazine, out now.

The flaws of socialism

We are in debt as a country yet people like this are sponging off the country when there are honest hard working single parents earning just over 6k a year and not getting any benefits and tax cuts because they feel the need to earn there money

/

Seems like the sort of article the Sun would print to get more support for the Tories their newly adopted party....

solution - disband the family and send them to foster homes. Put the parents to work for a few years until the majority of the kids are 16 and of working age. Then put THEM to work. Make the grott bag mum incapable of having more kids. Ban the dad from having a tie and having kids.

This tie thing has me in tears this morning.

Just the phrasing "Why is man wearing a tie when he don't work though" is classic.

Women who are popping kids out with a partner when they both have

no intention of working should have their wombs terminated.

About you want another 14 kids you scummy cunts

Hate these cunts who sit are happy to receive benefits. My bro been out of work for 6 months and I had a go at him because he isn't working hard enough to find a job. Low n behold he's got 2 interviews this week.

don't care if your gonna have less money

Personally I like to work, so understand what your saying. However not all think the same and TBH if the family can get £42k, decent cars and live a better life then they would be silly not to take what they can.

As long as they fail within the confines of the T and C's of getting the benefits, then the family have done no wronng. Its the goverment to take a look at system and bring in changes, this is not the 1st and def will not be the last case we will hear.

42k > having less

Understand what your saying, but why have less when you can have more, basic sense isnt it ?

Personally I like to work, but if the family can get £42k, decent cars etc why not and live a better life not their the fault the country is f*cked up.

42k > having less

Nah it's about being a functioning member of a working society tbh.

We have a system in place that uses tax money to help people who really need it, that £42k that these sponging cunts get could pay for hospital equiptment, social care for orphans, etc etc

You saying you're okay with these wankers taking a cut of your salary over supporting things like the NHS which actually directly affects you?

Don't reckon so

From time government cant spend billions on an unjust war but cant be bothered to sort out our healthcare, education system, these "wankers" are not the problem

Just like anything in life, if your entitled to it then you will seize upon it. The family are therefore they are within their rights to do so.

Just like the MPs, they are entitled to it and been so for so many years.

If the system wasn't like how it was then this kinda stories would not be coming up
