Absolutely unbeleivable. By her own admission 'cannot be bothered to get out of bed, have not and will never work, living one life(subsided by honest tax paying citizens and 2 ex partners + the latest aquasition in tow). I have this image - straight out of school into a maternity dress. As for her not caring - well she is so rubbed up for some rearson she feels the need to justify her position. Sounds like a Didcot Heather Mills, but without the money. Yup, we all accept this as a wind up - me I have more richness than you could amass in a hundred lifetimes given your current 'lifestyle' and I have no need to live in Didcot too, or indeed for that matter Oxfordshire - but then again, unlike someone I do not want to turn into a braggart. xxx :) ;) ;) v
