Squeeze too tight for family of 13

Post by Baz on Thu Oct 16, 2008 3:19 am




A family of 13 are hoping to find a new home because they just can't take being crammed any more.

Michelle and Robert Neasham have 11 children between them and they are struggling to cope with their four-bedroom council house which has just one bathroom.

Their brood aged from two to 17 have to queue for the loo every morning, while the younger children eat on the floor. 'We have had enough.

It's a total nightmare living here. None of us have any privacy,' said Mrs Neasham.

The family, from Felling in Tyne on Wear, receive 2,269 a month in benefits and are still struggling to make ends meet.

They munch through four loaves of bread and 16 pints of milk a day but, to make matters worse, Mr Neasham, 39, lost his job as a tile fitter.

'I can cope with looking after the children but the housing situation gets me,' said Mrs Neasham.

Gateshead Housing Company said: 'To date, the tenant has not asked about a possible move and has not joined our HomeChoice scheme to do so.'

I posted this to contrast with the woman with 7 children in a 7 bedroom house who receives 170,000 a year in benefits.

Bless 'em, there's no doubt they'll get a bigger house at our expense.

I can't believe they are complaining about it to the papers though when they haven't even approached the housing association?
