Jobless Couple Wins £50,000 in the Lotto, Blows It All, Begs the Government for Help

If you won £50,000 in the lottery tomorrow, what would you do with it?

Well, no matter what you answer, you would have to try really hard to sound as stupid as the following story.

Jamie and Abbie Hort won £50,000 ($72,818 USD) in the Channel Islands Lottery in 2014. Somehow, they managed to blow through the whole amount in less than a year on what sounds like a bunch of crap. Trips, expensive dinners, designer clothes, and a 50″ big screen TV.

After running out of cash and getting evicted twice, they ran to the government begging for help.

Via the Daily Mail:

We had no other income source so the money was going on things like food. Sometimes we were spending £70 ($102USD) a day on food.

The couple, who blew all of their prize money in a year, have been refused benefits.

‘We were a bit silly with it, it could have lasted a lot longer, I’ll admit that. But all we want now is some help.’

‘It has been quite upsetting. We are not scroungers. We just don’t have any money and we think the Government should be there to help us.’

Wow. You know, while it may not be a fortune, for some people that’d still be a life-changing amount of money, and look what these two did with it.

Worse, these people seem like walking clichés.

First you have the lovely commentary of Mrs. Hort on Facebook, whining about her ruined Christmas and community backlash over their attitude about deserving government handouts for essentially failing at life:



Then you have the specialness (yes, it isn’t a word and still somehow applies here) of Mr. Hort:

Mr Hort, 29, who was jailed for six months in 2012 for spitting into a woman’s mouth while he had Hepatitis C, said the couple’s money ran out just before Christmas and admitted they had been ‘a bit silly’ with it.

He said if the money had not run out they would not be asking for help. The couple, who have two sons aged four and two, are currently living off handouts from Mr Hort’s mother.

Three years ago a court heard she went to Mr Hort’s family home with another woman after her son had a fight with his then-girlfriend.

As Mrs Hort went to call the police, her son slapped her around the ear. He then turned to the other woman and spat.

Mr Hort, who was awaiting sentencing for using threatening behaviour while brandishing an axe and a hammer at the time of the offence, admitted two counts of assault and one of using threatening behaviour.


You know, it’s like that one time when you were awaiting sentencing for threatening behavior while brandishing and axe and a hammer and spitting in a woman’s mouth while infected with Hep C?

Yes, these are just the sort of people every taxpayer can’t wait to support.

    I guess getting a F@#!ing job you two wastes of human life. Would be to much for them. They sound so dumb it probably never even crossed there minds.

    Such a shame they’ve been reproducing.

    • Unfortunately, reproductive rates tend to run in inverse proportion to earning potential and intelligence.

    Wow, what would I do with 70k? Build a solar powered tiny house, buy a keg of beer for each of my closest friends and I dunno maybe go on a trip then bank the rest?

  • CherryAnn1000

    Nice to know not all the welfare junkies live in the US. How about getting a job, you loonies? The govt owes you nothing, not now, not ever. I could do a whole lot with 50 quid, and it wouldn’t be spent like you did.

  • John Ricci

    Granted, 50k is not a lot of money however it could have given a young couple with a bit of ambition a leg up toward home ownership…but…oh wait…no…the party was way more important!

    Let me guess. They are Democrats and Obama supporters, right?

    • Nexusfast123

      They live in the UK. They are only supporters of their own selfish needs.

    Let them starve!

    70k.. I will continue work on my pipe dream. I would like to manufacture a single shot falling or rolling block rifle but out of titanium with a graphite barrel. I want a thunder stick that weighs less than anything from

    Convert to Islam, move to Germany. Merkel will be drooling in anticipation of your arrival.

    I guess everybody here is the perfect gentleman and woman at all times? It’s gross what they did, but they have the right same as anyone else to apply for whatever is available, don’t they?

    People sure love to be judgmental and are ready to execute other people when they don’t agree with them. Look in the mirror – maybe you didn’t do the exact same thing as these two, but you’ve probably done something in your life that you don’t want others to know about, that maybe would put you in a similar light….

    It’s like waiting at a ob/gyn office in the US! Women sitting there with 4 kids and one on the way, or teen mom with her first baby out of wedlock! Both sit back complaining that their doctor takes too long, and they can’t find another ob accepting Medicaid, complains on the Obama phone to their welfare momma that the gov is too slow getting their section 8 housing! I kid you not! If America could see the ingrate’s at the ob offices across America, they would demand welfare to end!

    They’re are properly described as white trash.

    If I had bumped into this couple when I was flat broke maybe a grand would fall out of their kitchen window i would have been alright
