Couple Came To New Country For A Better Life, But Expect Taxpayers To Pay For It - And Are Demanding More

Some people are never satisfied. No matter how much they might get, greed and a sense of entitlement drive them to demand more, more and more.

One family moved to the U.K. hoping to build a better life for themselves, but they think it should be handed to them. They're now demanding a free 6-bedroom house to live in for their large family.

Arnold Mballe Sube and his wife, Jeanne, were born in Cameroon. Wanting a better life, the couple immigrated to Europe and settled in France. The two lived quite comfortably on public assistance and started a large family.

After having eight children, Arnold decided he wanted to support his family, but he felt he deserved a degree so he could do a better job of it.

Arnold and Jeanne moved their family of 10 from France to the U.K., where the family lives on public assistance while Arnold works towards a degree in psychiatric nursing. The government is not only paying nearly $150,000 per year to cover all their living expenses so that Jeanne can be a stay-at-home mom and Arnold can go to school; they're also paying for Arnold's entire $36,000 education.

Still, the selfish family isn't satisfied. The government has struggled to provide for such a big family. For four months, they put them up in several hotel rooms, and the family ran up nearly $30,000 in room service bills.

Then authorities found the family a three-bedroom house to rent. They're not happy with it, though. They say they feel too cramped.

It's especially tight because Arnold has claimed one of the three bedrooms to use as a study and home gym, instead of letting the children sleep in it.

“There wasn’t space for the things of ten people. It didn’t even have a dining room," the father complained.

“Me and my family have been neglected. We are living in a three-bedroom house and there’s not enough room for us. It’s so cramped and the conditions are terrible.

"My children are starting school and we can’t stay here any longer."

“The council is trying to make things hard for us," Arnold complains. "They’re just making excuses."

It's very hard to find public housing that accommodates a family of 10. The council has offered the family a four-bedroom house and a five-bedroom house, but the Subes won't have it. They want a six-bedroom house with double sized rooms.

They need enough space for not only their children, gym and home office, but flat-screened televisions and video game systems, and all the games their children collectively own. Not to mention, they're still having kids. Their youngest is just three months old.

“We are entitled to six bedrooms. I believe that the council has to support me in order for me to become a positive person and contribute to the tax system," Arnold says.

Neighbors are furious with the family.

“They’ve got some cheek. I’d bite the council’s hand off if they offered me a five-bed house. They’re too fussy and they shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it," one told The Sun.

“I think it’s a disgrace. There are people out on the streets in the city center and ex- soldiers with nowhere to live. It is a struggle but don’t go on and moan about it," said another.

The council is about done with the Subes. They say if they turn down the next suitable house they find, then the family will just have to be on their own and fend for themselves.

“After a generous offer on our part, we have done our bit and if housing is offered and declined without, what we judge, good reason, then we will offer the property to another family.”
