Joey Barton invites unhappy Romanians to leave UK, endorses breeding licence while watching Benefits Street
Joey Barton went off on one, as his wont, while watching Channel 4′s program Benefits Street last night, which highlights the benefits scamming rife in the UK.
Barton was incredulous at the base decrepitude before his eyes, unable to believe that so many people are getting away with scamming the system and hence screwing taxpayers.
Barton vented his fury with a series of suggestions on Twitter, namely that the people involved in these scams should be sterilised, or at least banned from reproducing.
Barton then had a suggestion for the Romanians he saw on screen, advising them to leave the UK if they’re not happy there; ‘could you imagine me going to Romania trying this shit on?’
While he clearly didn’t mean all Romanians, it’s a loaded comment open to misinterpretation.
