    Doesn't anybody check these things?

    Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.

    He could have clearly incorporated his walking stick into his posing routine! FFS, what a rookie!

    We live in a culture where benefits are regarded as a right by many. Whilst there are very genuine reasons for some people to claim there are also some who simply abuse the system.

    The best punishment for benefit fraud would be for the person to have to work off the stolen amount via community service at minimum wage. 

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    Sadly he will likely be given a few months of the original sentence then be back out and due to the conviction will be unemployable and therefore back on benefits. He will not have to re-pay any of the debt as he will have no income. We will have to pay for his upkeep whislt in prison and for the forseeable future....

    Obviously none of you are bodybuilders; don't you know how hard comp prep is: you can hardly walk, you can't interact with people, you're tired all the time, moody and social outcasts.  How can they be expected to work?!!!
     
    And they need pay for food, supplements and pay for gear at the bear minimum.  Plus stage tan and trunks aren't cheap even at the highly competative prices found on www.liquidsunrayz.co.uk

    That's what happens in a society that rewards insolence. We all know benefits families that have more money than those of us that work.

    Public shaming would be better, put the crims in stocks daily so people can throw fruit n veg at them old school.
     
    or instead go with modern times, big brother etc.
     
    have there pants pulled down and bummed on live tv

    Trained at my gym. Pretty much 90% of the times I've trained in the past five years, he has been there.
     
    Have to say he is a really sound guy lol. Very experienced and would help others out. Chatted to him quite a few times. He's complimented my squat form too.
     
    This was a big shock to myself and other members in the gym! Inexcusable really and surprising how he got away with it for so long.
