Where is the scrounging capital of Britain?
No, it’s not Telford or geordieskiveland!
Good day scrounge-pickers. It’s time to count down the top ten sponging areas of Great Britain. Will you be surprised? Not ‘arf!
The begging-bowl is out in Bolsover as Derbyshire’s scroungers slither in at number ten while new at a spongetastic nine is Amber Valley.
Och aye the noo….swinging the lead rather than tossing the caber is Clackmannonshire at number eight and at a less- than-magnificent seven is the malingerlicious South Derbyshire.
Grab those crutches if you live in Erewash, great mate, you’re straight in at a sickly six, just a quick motability car drive away from our fluctuating five – Derby.
At FOUR!! are the good golfing folk of handoutmongous Halton with barely the thickness of an ESA 50 separating them from number three – the Atos botherers of nearby Knowsley.
Leeching in at two are the North West Leicestershire layabouts but at number one for the first time this year are the blister-bursting, haemorrhoid-hurting, scroungasmic parasites of Brentwood, Essex!
Are these the dregs of society? Not ‘arf mate!
