East Lancs benefits cheat avoids jail term

First published in News Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Chief reporter

A BENEFITS cheat who claimed he had difficulties walking for nearly four years has been spared a jail sentence by a crown court judge.

Paul Brown, 49, had told the Department of Work and Pensions that his mobility was seriously restricted as he made a claim for disability living allowance, Burnley Crown Court heard.

And he also stated, to increase his benefit payments, that he required help with his personal care, the court was told.

But it later emerged, after a DWP investigation, that he had ‘over-exaggerated’ the extent of his walking difficulties and he was prosecuted by the agency. Interviewed by officials, he said that his benefits form had originally been completed by his mother and he had just signed the bottom.

Brown, of Dover Street, Nelson, admitted making a false representation for benefits between April 2009 and February 2013.

He was given a three-month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months and given 12 months probation supervision by Judge Simon Newell. Richard Taylor, defending, said his client, if he had not claimed disability living allowance (DLA), would have had a notional entitlement to employment support allowance, over the same period.

The court heard that while the overpayment for DLA was just over £20,000, the overall loss to the state was instead around £10,000. Brown is now repaying the money back to the department.

Passing sentence, Judge Newell said the defendant had claimed he had difficulties in walking and the form had been completed by Brown’s mother as he could not read or write.

The offence merited a suspended prison sentence to act as a deterrent, he added.

Cases like this ( even though less than 1% of claims are fraudulent ) are being used as the Corporate-Nazi excuse for the following !

It is now published that the eco-fascists behind and probably in control of the environmental NGO’s advocate a massive reduction in the human population on our planet, and therefore it is now reasonable to believe that individual governments may be secretly planning along those lines. Having followed UK environment politics for well over 20 years now the evidence suggests that the UK has plans to reduce the population significantly, which may be significantly accelerated in the event of the meltdown of the global stock markets as part of an ” Austerity ” policy. It would appear that the starting gun has now been fired on the Green Holocaust in the form of the current UK Welfare Reform Bill and particularly with policy relating to the chronically sick and disabled, like Finnish eco-fascist activist Pentti Linkola suggests, achieve the goal to kill all ” defectives ” by stealth.

Although it in not at first apparent that the Welfare Reform Bill has anything to do with an eco-fascist inspired Green Holocaust if you examine all the evidence it becomes increasingly clear if you work on the theory that the doctors are prescribing medicine specifically for the side effects. Disability groups on the left of UK politics are far too hung up on fighting ” cuts ” and have their noses far to close to the political party grindstone to notice the more subtle trend on overall policy direction. Also most on the left are in total denial that their ideological champion Ed Miliband’s 2008 Climate Change Act has any influence on the well being of low income people, yet energy consumers are already paying at least an extra 15% on their energy bills in Green Taxes to subsidise alleged renewable energy projects and this is expected to rise.

Taking the panoramic view on the current welfare reforms it would appear that the whole object of the exercise as far as the Tory party propaganda was concerned was to cut the deficit, yet its clear that many more profoundly disabled people will be forced into being battery farmed in private care homes as a result and probably saving nothing in the longer term. Most disabled people are proud of their independence and so they will not submit to being housed in a care home unless they are literally freezing and starving to death, however, there remains a group who are not quite ” disabled ” enough to qualify for treatment in a ” care home “. It is these people who are first on the list to freeze and starve to death, no need for expensive concentration camps they can just be left to rot in their current homes, with no help whatsoever from a community which has bought into the Corporate Nazi propaganda that all people on state benefits are scroungers.

Don't think you are safe if you are an OAP either !

Up until now Old Age Pensioners have escaped almost any welfare reform except for the proposed increase in the retirement age, it would appear that the elderly are a special case and potentially covered from attack by the political correctness equivalent of the Fox Hunting Ban. However, it would now appear that the Murdoch media empire has set itself to campaign for the end of the currently universal OAP benefits like winter fuel allowance, free bus passes and even the free TV licence for the over 75s, and its pretty clear that a significant number of pensioners don’t actually need them from an affordability point of view. In fact many OAP’s have incomes into the higher rate income tax brackets due to generous company pensions, but the majority are well down below the OAP personal allowance even if they are actually relatively cash rich from lifetime savings they lose out on the current low interest rates.

It is the cash rich and income poor pensioners who will lose most, usually people who own their house outright and intend to pass on the property and some half decent savings to their offspring on death, many of them have small company pensions which disqualify them from the pensioner credit scheme as set up by Gordon Brown. The pension credit was probably the starting gun for a general squeze on pensions, everyone remembers the 75p rise one year due to the supermarkets colluding to keep the September inflation figures artificially low. The Tories can now claim the biggest rise in history, and the claim that the plan for a 140 quid a week flat pension to cut out the means testing element for pension credit, all very commendable except it apparently does not include current pensioners when it comes in in a few years forward.

I suspect that the bus pass question is totally irrelevant for many OAP’s as they still run a car, but it would appear that a significant number took it up as an opportunity to sell their car because their eye’s were not really up to driving anymore, probably the most effective piece of Road Safety legislation ever passed in the UK even if not actually by the department of transport, and accidents have seen a falling trend. Its cheaper to run an old car with a good Mpg than it is to take the bus in rural areas so scrapping the free bus pass could in theory spur the second hand car market but significantly increase road accidents, so in essence is a false economic growth mechanism. The same principle applied to the welfare reforms to disability benefits, everyone got a 40% increase in their car insurance premiums due to the means testing of ESA I suspect that employers liability insurance went up as well, plus the insurance companies are vastly increasing premiums for the over 80s and many companies will not offer cover at all so more pensioners will fall below the Corporate Nazi financial apartheid barrier to driving. Then they will need their bus pass especially if they want to remain in their home, loss of a driving licence can actually lead to being forced to sell up and go into a home if no bus service exists. On balance the OAP free buss pass has had positive benefits for society so why change it and fill the trunk roads full of Leg-Irons again thus increasing fuel consumption and the potential for fatal head on crashes due to botched overtaking attempts.

The Corporate Nazi’s main target is the winter fuel allowance, they only let Blair introduce it because at the time they knew people would just go out and spend it into the wider economy but energy prices have now inflated so much this is probably no longer the case, thus the proposals to get rid of it. Then we are back to Corporate Ethnic Cleansing again, if you can’t afford to keep warm then move into a smaller house of no use whatsoever to your offspring after you die, or take out equity release so again you can’t pass it on in the family. Its all about destroying the wealth allegedly ” cascading down the generations ” as right wing free market UK politicians used to proclaim, the stock market parasites want to intercept it all, and to enslave the entire nation to the Banks apart from a very select few, and now there is loose talk about allowing inflation to technically erase the debt, the very last policy any low income people need to hear. It would appear that benefit claimants have been evicted just in time to cash in on wealthy immigrants from wider Europe moving into London, now they probably want all the old people out as well, also plenty of pressure on BBC Escape to the Country, so more people will be priced out of rural areas soon to be jigged along with a tax on coal. On balance the winter fuel allowance is beneficial to a large group of OAP’s on the margins of the financial apartheid barriers yet it would appear that if all green taxes were scrapped they would be totally unnecessary, at present their is a valid argument to extend the winter fuel allowance to the chronically sick and disabled but the Corporate Nazi’s would never allow that as it would interfere with their plans.

The free TV licence for the over 75s is a no brainer, and again should be extended to the chronically sick and disabled and perhaps it helps families where OAP’s go and live with their kids in a sort of virtual granny flat, something which I believe should be encouraged space permitting like after their kids have moved out. Obviously the BBC don’t want to loose revenue because you have your surviving perhaps bereaved parent living with you and avoiding being submitted to be battery farmed in the private care home industry. Of course the whole object of the Corporate Nazi exercise is to ensure that you die before you can claim the pension you thought all along you were fully entitled to, its reported that due to the current low interest rate annuities are not paying what they once were. If the stock market implodes due to the Euro crisis culminating in sovereign debt default which looks inevitable, even if Wall Street does not implode due to proven massive scale fraud. The clock is ticking and we need to forge a future of our UK welfare state perhaps by thinking really radical and going for a citizens income option. In any case there is a good case for the reform of means testing in order that the cut off point becomes the higher rate tax bracket, similar to the current proposals for child benefit, and to pay for it perhaps public sector pensions should be capped at 26k per household like other benefits now. Of course the said 26k cap will never happen because there would be loads of former police and other civil servants blowing the whistle on numerous government scandals over the past 30 years, perhaps even the truth about the Corporate Nazi Arch Plan I often point to in my writings ?

One recent benefit scrounger, Maria Miller MP, billed taxpayers for £90,718 worth of expenses, for a house which her parents were living in. During the 14 months of investigations, Miller bombarded the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner, Kathryn Hudson, with a series of aggressive letters containing thinly-veiled threats. Mrs Hudson was not cowed and concluded that scrounger Miller had falsely over-claimed £45,000.

Guess how long Miller's prison sentence was? Surprise, there was never any mention of prison! Miller simply had her cronies on the Parliamentary Standards COMMITTEE deal with the matter, and they did! These accomplices in the fraud simply agreed with Miller that she should pay back only £5,000!. The COMMITTEE also put the boot in Mrs Hudson saying that she was too 'strict' in her interpretation of the rules!

The Parliamentary parasites and spongers get to keep their proceeds of crime. They don't even get the sack. The poor get hit the hardest and pushed further into poverty.

The injustices of this class war are, we are told to believe, called JUSTICE.
