Common thieving cheats

Bournemouth Echo: Benefit cheats Nicola Rogers and Bryan Rogers Benefit cheats Nicola Rogers and Bryan Rogers

IF they are looking for work when they come out of prison, Nicola Rogers and her husband Bryan could be a poster couple for the Department for Work and Pensions.

The pair stole £69,000 of taxpayers’ money by defrauding the benefits system, lounging around for six years, rousing themselves only to go on expensive holidays and shopping sprees.

They weren’t even bright enough to be discreet, instead boasting of their exploits on Facebook.

Now they have been exposed as common thieving cheats. They’ll be taken care of by HM Government for just a little longer.

Hopefully in rather less comfort.

Same could be said for Maria Miller, MP for Basingstoke.She in her position should of set an example and yet David Cameron defended her till he could no more.

Is there a difference, no.But if those at the top can't set an example then how do you expect others to behave ?

I suspect that's a very big 'IF' - but it would be great to be proved wrong. Yes, what exactly is the difference between this couple & Maria Miller as the outcomes are certainly different? They both claimed money they were not entitled to. As I understand it, Maria Miller fought tooth & nail against being found guilty & having to pay it back, supported by a rich & powerful employer (the PM) and although demoted has managed to hold onto her well-paid MP's job. The Rogers have not been so lucky.
