Cheryl Prudham, 34, is a mother – phenomenally though, she is a mother to twelve. And all these twelve are her biological children, from three different fathers. She also knows a thing or two about getting government benefits as and when she pleases.
As the United Kingdom operates a welfare scheme, this thirty-four-year-old is able to keep getting pregnant and subsequently receiving handouts whenever she asks. To cap it all, she spends these ‘handouts’ so lavishly that a number of people have found it impossible to contain their ire.
Even though other citizens revile her for squandering taxpayers’ monies on ostentatious spending through extravagant schemes and wild pleasures, Cheryl believes she earns her $49,000 per year in welfare. One thing she has surely earned though is the shouting moniker, Britain’s ‘most shameless mum’.
However, now this scrounging baby-factory is in trouble, not from an irate public but from law enforcement; particularly the Police. She has been found to have been an accomplice in stealing and spending over $12,000 in change from parking ticketing meters from Meteor Parking Limited. This crime was actually committed by her now estranged husband, Robert.
If she has never considered herself to be in trouble before, now is the time this English mother had better do so.
Known as the ‘Queen of Benefits’, this shameless mom has been public enemy number one ever since her ludicrous exploits were exposed. Not only was she caught shopping for a new Mercedes Benz earlier in the year as she visited the local dealership near her home in Wigan, Lancashire but she also made no attempt to hide her lavish spending habits. She is also known to buy her brood luxurious presents whenever they celebrate their birthdays.
Her former husband, Robert Prudham is three years her junior. He is also the father to six of her children. He has been charged with stealing of $12,886 from parking meters at the company he briefly worked for. This he did with the help of a relative, Jacob Undertown.
Besides that, the law is also breathing down Robert’s neck for failing to admit his previous criminal convictions and pretending that he is of good social standing when he applied for a job at a recruitment firm, Red Eagle Recruitment Inc. Luckily for them, they smoked him out in time and he is going to be in big trouble.
At this point is where the national spendthrift, Cheryl, comes in. She was busy handling her husband’s stolen cash while in full knowledge of the dubious circumstances under which it was obtained.
But circumstances can be damned when it comes to the ‘Queen of Benefits’!
Now, three members of the family are roped into the same crime. Both Prudhams and the twenty seven-year-old Jacob, have been charged with fraud and theft. But the family trio starkly denies any involvement in criminal activities. They unwaveringly claim someone else did it.
The evidence, however, is pretty convincing that the unscrupulous trio stole cash on numerous occasions from a number of parking lots in Maidstone, Kent County in the southeast of England. They are to stand trial in November this year.
During the trial, it can be expected that most of the public’s focus will be on the ridiculously fertile, Cheryl – never mind that her men are the most culpable. Cheryl rose to infamy after it was widely reported how much she takes from government benefits and how she routinely beats the benefits cap to earn way more than the stipulated maximum of $32,000.
She birthed six children, beginning at seventeen years in the year 2000, with two different men before momentarily settling down with Robert to produce another half a dozen. This brings the total to a head-spinning twelve kids in fifteen years. Aside from fleecing $2100 from the government per annum for each child, Cheryl also works as a part-time cleaner at a local store.
Cheryl ended her unusually long relationship with the penny-pinching Robert when she caught him enjoying a threesome with his own cousin. It has since then not been established whether the said cousin is male or female. Cheryl though is sure that she has had enough with men.
“I don’t want another [man] because they are too much hard work,” she nonchalantly says. “I was hurt by Robert and find it difficult to trust again”
If you had assumed that she has had it up to the neck with babies just as she has with blokes, you had better think again. The oblivious mother of twelve is already dreaming about her next child. In fact, she claims that she wants a boy this time round. Instead of having a relationship, she would rather go with a sperm donor for her record thirteenth. She proudly admits she is addicted to being pregnant.
We cannot be sure she is not already baking a bun in her oven even as she describes what kind of man she would love to have as her sperm donor – of course, descriptions like handsome, strong and so on are thrown about with characteristic casualness.
When they were a couple, the Prudhams bountifully made off with about $74,000 per year of welfare funds and easily exploited systemic loopholes to bypass the benefits cap. When she eventually has her thirteenth infant, Cheryl will take home, even more, government benefits. And the system seems hopelessly helpless to do anything about such blatant imposture.
“Another baby would mean more benefits so the more, the merrier,” Cheryl gleefully adds. “I’m not worried about getting hit by the benefits cap, there are always ways around it”
In spite of the fact that the behavior of a few like Cheryl and her opportunistic ilk causes unacceptable misuse of tax Sterling collected from mostly law abiding citizens, it would be of utmost error if such welfare schemes are to be discontinued. The effect on the well-being of the genuinely needy would be scandalously profound. We are better off devising more rigorous systems of verification.
