Getting married is a human right. So is not having to pay for it. Apparently


This is a story of troughing entitleitis that makes your eyes water…

An unemployed woman has her heart set on a ‘fairy-tale church wedding’ – and believes the taxpayer should foot the bill as it is her basic human right to be a bride.

Anna Broom, of Gillingham, in Kent, has not worked since the age of 19, during which time she has claimed more than ?100,000 in benefits.

The jobless 33-year-old now wants an extra ?10,000 to fund her dream ‘traditional English wedding and party in a castle’.

Miss Broom is desperate for a church ceremony, designer dress, horse and carriage – ‘like Katie Price’ – and champagne for her 50 guests.

Just as a rule of thumb, multiply ??by two to get NZ dollars. ?

And she wants the taxpayer to stump up a further ?2,000 for her honeymoon, where she hopes to jet off to Mexico.

The Gillingham resident claims it is her ‘basic human right’ to be a bride and says that tying the knot would boost her fragile confidence and encourage her to try and find a job again.

Miss Broom receives monthly benefits including ?460 disability living allowance and joint ?200 housing benefit with fianc? Jordan Burford, 39, who also gets ?134 income support a month.

The size 24 bride-to-be said: ‘I’ve dreamed about being a bride since I was 12 years old.

‘I deserve a fairy-tale church wedding and a party in a castle – but there’s no way I could afford it on benefits and I can’t work because I’m overweight.’

These people have the art of being professional victims down to a fine art.

The 33-year-old admits she will struggle to pay back the full amount and says she’d prefer to go halves.

She said: ‘Even if I only got ?5,000 in vouchers to put towards the wedding, that’d make life easier.

‘Jordan just wants us to get married and only wants a limo and cream suit, but I want to feel like a princess for the day.’

Run Jordan. ?RUN!
