THE little piggy who stayed at home has had his Universal Credit benefits stopped, it has been confirmed.
Piglet Bill McKay had his payments sanctioned after Job Centre Plus staff said he didn’t even make it to the market to look for work.
McKay said: “They said my non-attendance at the market was proof that I wasn’t serious about finding employment. But I am, it’s just that there is very little work going at the minute for juvenile pigs.
“I’m applying for 40 jobs a week so I don’t know what else I can do. I certainly won’t be having roast beef next week, that’s for sure.”
Meanwhile McKay’s neighbour, big bad wolf Wayne Hayes has been offered a major role in a Channel 5 documentary.
Hayes said: “They want to show that although I’m a big bad wolf, I still have a warm, human side. Just because some pigs get in debt, I don’t take any enjoyment from blowing their houses down.
“Usually I just go round and have a chat with them over a cup of tea. Then I blow their house down.”
