Mom Of Eight Claims She Deserves Welfare Benefits And Now Taxpayers Are Furious

The UK has a relatively generous social welfare system, especially for single moms and large families. However, some people rightfully question the system when they see welfare recipients like Marie Buchan, who don’t seem to need help, and are just exploiting the system.

Buchan says that she came to the realization when looking in a mirror sometime back that she was “too beautiful” to work. Although most single parents in both the US and the UK work hard to provide a good life for their kids, Buchan does not believe she should have to work.

The argument Buchan is making is that her chosen field of work (auto mechanic) would not be a good fit for her because she is too attractive and most garages therefore wouldn’t hire her as she would be too much of a distraction.

Related to this, Buchan has decided to have breast augmentation surgery. Her current boyfriend says he will pay for the expensive surgery, but Buchan says a “hot” auto mechanic would not fit in.

Granted her boyfriend is paying for her cosmetic surgery, it still seems strange that a mum of eight on benefits will spend thousands of dollars on fake boobs when the money could certainly be well spent to help out her children.

Some people in the UK argue that Buchan seems like she could hold a job and that her “good looks” are not a barrier to employment, arguably the opposite. Depending on how you look at it, she could just be trying to scam the government benefit system. From that perspective, it seems like she just wants to keep getting the $30,000 of free money she gets every year from taxpayers.

It also seems rather bizarre that Buchan has recently decided to learn how to be an auto mechanic. She has no prior experience or skills as a mechanic, but she has signed up for classes at a nearby college to train to work as a mechanic in the future.

Note that Buchan has worked as a caretaker on the weekends (16 hours a week total) in the past, but gave up that job several years ago job when her family expanded to four. The welfare queen mom says she much prefers having the weekends to spend with her kids instead of working for very low pay

Buchan also noted in a recent interview that she has been surprised at how difficult raising eight children is with barely $2500 a month to cover all expenses. The youngest of Buchan’s kids is two years old and the oldest is 13 years old, and they all have the same dad.

Although Buchan has appeared several times on UK talk shows to try and defend her personal choices and lifestyle, polls show that most of the British public disagree with her choices. These people feel that freeloaders like Buchan are exploiting a system that is intended to help people who can’t help themselves, not to give lazy people a free ride.
