Woman Living Off Government Benefits Demanding More - Her Reasoning Is Bizarre

Debbie Merton says England’s Queen Elizabeth is a bigger welfare queen than she is. She calls the $1,434 a month she gets in benefits from the government a “disgusting” amount of money to have to live on.

“It's bloody hard and the government don't really give a s***, they're alright in their posh houses and eating lobster and caviar every night,” she told MailOnline. “It's just disgusting how they expect you to live on money and support a house and support yourself.”

Merton, 46, hasn’t worked in 25 years and gets government aid because of her disability. She says it’s unlikely she’ll ever work again.

“I tried getting other jobs before I was disabled but couldn't because I had no qualifications, it really winds me up - I get so angry,” she tells MailOnline.

Those benefits allow her to live in a large council flat in East Sussex, where she throws dinner parties for her friends. Meanwhile Stacy Farrand a 28-year-old single mother from Hastings lives off of $73 a week in a one-bedroom with her son. Merton still doesn’t care.

“Look at the Queen, she's got Buckingham Palace and God knows how many other f****** properties. All her grandchildren and kids have got two, three, four different houses and we're sitting here on the poverty line, eating c**p. while THAT is sitting in her f****** palace, eating pretty, eating swan and everything,” she complains. “'It winds me up.”
