Benefit cheats

What's the point in tracking down benefit cheats if they are not imprisoned or made to pay the benefits back!?!

"The 29-year-old conned benefits staff into paying him nearly £25,000 before his lies began to unravel. "

Despite all that 'tracking' technology, "An immigration officer spotted him at the wheel of a Mercedes wearing expensive clothes with his wife in the passenger seat dressed in a fur coat."

Would the fraud have been prevented if benefit claimants were forced to have biometric ID cards?

'No ifs, no buts, no idea, no clue, no justice, no spine, no respect, no prison sentence, no fine, no one-way ticket back to Iran.

It figures.
