VOICE OF THE PEOPLE: Stinking shame.

WE'VE heard it all now.

The scrounging, 12-strong Crompton clan think they've got it tough. They have two council houses knocked into one packed with all mod-cons, hi-tec entertainment systems, three computers and an Xbox. They've just been given a pounds 500 cleaner to scrub up the home they have allowed to become a pig sty.

And they get a staggering pounds 32,656 a year in benefits, all paid for by YOU, because Harry hasn't worked for 13 years and wife Tracey has been unemployed for 18.

But the family, from Hull, are now threatening to sue their council - claiming they've taken too long to carry out repairs.

Hull is Britain's poorest city, with thousands of other folk genuinely in need. Most would welcome the luxuries handed out to this family and take pride in their homes.

The Cromptons should be ashamed.
