The news today reported the story of a Liverpool man accused of benefit fraud in excess of £29,000. The man had been reported and then been filmed training for a marathon, despite claiming benefit as being unfit to work. He was also a member of his local running club.

This is not the first case of “exhibitionism” by those claiming fraud. Why do these people feel it necessary to draw attention to themselves? Why don’t they hide behind their curtains and get on with their dirty little business?
We should be grateful for their stupidity – ultimately it will save the tax-payer money, but what is going on in their tiny minds?
