WORKING immigrants have been branded as 'scandalously self-sufficient' after £10bn in benefits went unclaimed last year.
Now the Daily Mail has launched a campaign to force immigrants to collect all the money that is due to them so they can then attack them for getting it.
Editor Paul Dacre said: "They come over here and can't even be bothered to steal bread out of decent British mouths.
"Many of them, employed in some fancy unskilled job, probably think British benefits are beneath them."
The Department for Work and Pensions has tried to encourage new claims, displaying posters in betting shops, sponsoring the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Sky TV and branding a freephone helpline number onto packets of Findus Crispy Pancakes.
But Mr Dacre added: "It would seem that our foreign friends do not want to integrate into our society and adhere to cherished British customs such as a childlike dependence on the State."
Dr Tom Logan, of the Institute for Studies, said: "It seems there are far less worthless scroungers around than initially thought. That said, you better claim what's yours as soon as possible because this time next year we'll all be staring at a big, shiny pot of fuck-all."
Logan said the £10bn figure could also be reduced within the next two weeks, as there are currently 450 MPs applying for a crisis loan to buy a case of Montrachet and some Glyndebourne tickets.
