A judge has ruled a divorced Romanian mum must continue getting UK benefits even though she and her two children have never lived here. Mihaela Corniencos husband Bogdan, 45, worked as a meat hygiene inspector in Leeds and started claiming £150-a-month child benefit eight years ago.
The marriage failed and his whereabouts are unknown. Now a Romanian judge has said Mihaela is still entitled to the cash.
It said: The divorce of the parents does not alter the fact that the children remain family members of their father, who lives and works in the UK.
The ruling means UK taxpayers will provide a life-changing boost to Romanian Mihaela equivalent to nearly half the average monthly wage of £400-a-month...

Isn’t Socialism grand!
Where do we sign up?
If he were still working there, I could understand.
But “his whereabouts are unknown”. So it totally does not make any sense.
Good ruling there. By the way, I worked in the UK for over 20 years. I have absolutely no evidence to prove that. And my whereabouts are currently unknown. Nevertheless, I demand that the UK send me a $2000 per month pension. Oops! I meant a £2000 per month pension.
The U.K. should tell Romania - when you produce the husband, we will “think about it”.
It sounds to me like the Romania judge acted a lot like the tort bar in the U.S. Forget who is really responsible for child support at this time, go after the deepest pockets.
And yes, all the more reason for the U.K. to get out of the ewe.
yes, I’ll take some
Sure it does. You haven't fully developed an understanding of third world economics yet.
Who will they blame when they run out of other people’s money?
Or, more accurately, who will they kill?
Because that’s always the socialist end game.
400 Pounds a month makes you part of the richest 1% in Romania.
Not any longer. Maybe 20 years ago.
Ha ha, you're right. And it would be even better if Cher wasn't singing. Forty plus years later...Ouch!
