He has not a job, but Porsche

07 June 2014 [09:15] - TODAY.AZ
An unemployed man won a £53,000 Porsche after he spent £250 of his benefits on spot-the-ball tickets.

Andrew Boyce, who also scooped £10,000 cash, said he had gone from “rags to riches” but taxpayers were furious.

A neighbour in Leyton, East London, fumed: “It’s ­sickening I have to work two jobs to feed my family and that prat is spending my money spotting balls.”

Mr Boyce, 52, hit back and said: “What has it got to do with anyone how I got the money? People are just negative and jealous.”

He claimed he could not work due to a bad back, but upgrading his Ford Escort to a Porsche Boxster would help.

Andy Silvester, of the Taxpayers’ ­Alliance, added: “People can spend their benefits on whatever they want. But there’s nothing to stop him giving some of the cash back to the Government.”
