She’s Been Living Off The Government For YEARS, Then She Hit Them With A Request That Is Absolutely Mind Boggling….


A woman dubbed as a welfare queen has come under fire after asking for the government to help fund her fairy tale wedding.

Anna Broom, of Gillingham, in Kent in Southeast England, has not worked since she was 19 years old. The now 33-year-old has claimed more than $149,000 in benefits because she is “too fat to work.”

Now, she claims the government benefits simply aren’t enough as she now wants taxpayers to pay for a dream wedding costing $15,000. Broom claims that being a bride is a “basic human right” and that she is entitled to a “‘traditional English wedding and party in a castle.”

However, Broom isn’t requesting just any old wedding. Instead, the blushing bride says she wants a traditional English wedding complete with a party in a castle. Her request includes funds for the church ceremony, a designer dress, champagne, and even a horse and carriage. In addition to the elaborate wedding, Broom also wants an extra $3,000 to cover a honeymoon in Mexico.

Broom says she is too overweight to work, but that she has a basic human right to be a bride and that means a large traditional wedding. Broom goes on to say that being a bride will increase the prospect of getting a job as it will boost her confidence.

“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. I’m stuck in a rut at the moment and can’t find the motivation to lose weight, but if I was getting married I know I’d slim down because all eyes would be on me.”

Broom reportedly dropped out of high school at the age of 16. After applying to several different jobs and having no luck, she is said to have lost interest in job hunting and resorted to binge eating. Within one year, Broom weighed 238 pounds and was declared unfit to work after suffering from depression and back problems.

With this, she’s qualified for benefits since then and has never worked.

However, many people across the world are not buying into Broom‘s assumption that a wedding is a “basic human right” or that she will find the motivation to work following the wedding.

What do you think of Anna Broom’s assumption that being a bride is a “basic human right”? Should the government foot the bill for her elaborate wedding in hopes of boosting the woman’s confidence which could lead to her landing a job?

Or should Broom use her desire for the elaborate ceremonies as motivation to lose weight in order to find a job to pay for the traditional English wedding of her dreams?
