Longer sentences: Government to tackle benefit fraud by giving out more benefits

The Coalition government has today announced possible plans to give tougher, longer, prison sentences to benefit fraudsters, thus rewarding the best benefit fraudsters with even more state benefit.

Under the scheme, those who had been falsely claiming housing benefits, heating benefits and other such monies will be given free room and board by the government for up to ten years.

Iain Duncan Smith, the man in charge of the Department for Work and Pensions, announced the plan as one of the new ‘fight fire with fire schemes,’ that began with the government using debt to fight the financial crisis. Other parts of the government initiative include hiring the Mafia to rob from organised criminals, bringing in more immigrants to mask existing immigrants and setting fire to the North Sea Oil fields in order to solve our dependence on oil – the last being perhaps the most literal interpretation of the scheme.

The Edinburgh University Conservative and Unionist association said it had backed the plans from the beginning and will be holding a book-burning ceremony in order to celebrate its announcement.

The University Liberal Democrats asked us if we wanted their opinion. We said no.
