Child killer Mick Philpott may get his just deserts for bragging about receiving free false teeth on the NHS
Mick Philpott is a man who should only be remembered as a monster who burnt 6 of his 17 children to death in a house fire. Instead, now this evil creature is back in the press after receiving a full set of false teeth on the NHS.
Philpott – who previously personified ‘Benefit Britain’ by living in social housing and receiving some £60,000 a year in benefits – was a man described as being unwilling to pay for new teeth prior to be jailed. It can now be revealed that he has even written to his accomplice wife to tell her how “handsome” he now feels.
A prison source is quoted as adding:
“Philpott is over the moon with them, but taxpayers won’t be quite as pleased. Before he was jailed he was too tight to pay for his own dental treatment”.
“Even on his wedding day he went down the aisle with just a mouthful of gums. He lost his teeth because they all rotted away. But now he’s got a full set on the taxpayer”.
Mick Philpott, like any prisoner, one could argue, has rights. Given his having arrogantly bragged about his new look, though, we’d add that he’s now put himself in danger and is more likely to get a whack in his precious teeth from a fellow prisoner. For that reason, this child killer just had to be our Wally of the Week.
