Cameron shock at paltry unemployment benefit entitlement after ‘resigning’

author avatar by 7 years ago

Soon to be unemployed David Cameron is said to be shocked and disappointed at the benefits to which he is entitled after voluntarily leaving Downing Street.

“David is devastated,” said a close associate.

“He’s worked bloody hard for nearly thirty years for this country, and to find out that he’s literally not eligible for any sort of benefit when he becomes unemployed is a real blow.”

It is understood that Mr Cameron is livid that by resigning his office it means that his Universal credit could be sanctioned by up to 26 weeks.

“David can’t believe that the Government could be so callous and uncaring to someone like him who didn’t want to have to resign, but was forced into it by circumstance,” continued Mr Cameron’s associate.

“Like the majority of Tory party supporters, he understands and believes in the Government’s principles of austerity, and of clamping down on benefit fraud.

“But not when it has a detrimental effect on him personally.”

It is understood that unless Mr Cameron is able to convince Jobs and Benefits Office that his was a case of constructive dismissal, he and his family will have to scrape by on their millions of pounds in savings, investments, and properties until he can start his lucrative career on the after-dinner speaking circuit.
