This woman brings the title of “welfare queen” to a whole new level…
Mandy Cowie, 49, is a British mother of ten children by five different men who is given around £22,000-a-year in welfare benefits from her government. That’s over $34,000 in American money.
Now, Cowie is saying she is encouraging her own children to have kids because she wants fifty grandchildren so they can become Britain’s biggest welfare family.
Cowie has been on welfare for over three decades, and has used the money to do things like cover herself in $2,000-worth of tattoos. If you think she has any shame, she doesn’t…
“Ten kids and full of tattoos mate,” she proudly stated, according to Daily Mail. “So what if I’m on the effing dole mate – don’t like it, eff off. I had my first one at 18 and my last one at 36, and I’ve told them I want 50 grandkids before I die.”
Cowie is already well on her way towards this goal: she currently has sixteen grandchildren. She has boasted that she buys her 13 year-old daughter Chloe cigarettes “if she’s good and helps cook or wash up,” and that she allows her to drink alcohol at home.
“People may be shocked that I’ve been on benefots for so long but I don’t care,” Cowie said. “I can’t work because of the kids, and while the pregnancies weren’t planned, I love having a big family.”
“I probably wouldn’t get a job that would pay as much as I get now anyway,” the welfare queen added. “People might judge but if it’s there on offer, who wouldn’t take it?”
Three of Cowie’s children still live at home with her while seven of them have moved out. Many of the seven children not living at home have followed their mother’s example and gone on welfare themselves. 24 year-old daughter Cristal already has four children of her own, and has become an expert on milking the system.
“I’m still with the baby’s dad but he doesn’t live at my house. People say he lives there but he doesn’t,” she explained. “If we were to live together our benefits would get stopped, so we might as well be together and live in different houses.”
As a reward for her abhorrent behavior, Cowie has been given her own reality TV special in the U.K. It’s called Britain’s Biggest Benefits Family, and it premiered last year.
