A London pensioner is preparing to enter the history books this evening, after her £100-million per-year handout will become the longest-standing active benefit claim to remain completely unchallenged.
Elizabeth Windsor, 89, will have officially been out of work for an impressive 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes at 17:30 BST, despite her London home having a massive telly in every one of its 700 rooms.
Her ongoing claim will surpass the current record held by a lady by the name of Victoria, who lived in the city from 1837 to 1901.
Speaking outside her London home this morning, she said: “I honestly still don’t know where the f**k it all comes from, I just wake up and I’m richer. Maybe it’s because I married a Greek immigrant?
“I just hope all this media buzz doesn’t draw the DWP’s attention to the fact that I’ve been perfectly capable of working for the last sixty odd years”.
