Wirral man who falsely claimed 68,000 to fund 'lavish lifestyle' is jailed

A WIRRAL man who brazenly cheated the state out of 68,000 by falsely claiming he could barely walk went on 19 luxury cruises and made two trips to Australia.

Kevin Patrick McEntee, from Prenton, not only pretended that he was severely disabled to get his hands on the cash but also faked claims in his wife's name exaggerating her own disability.

A court heard that although it was true he had a heart attack, just six weeks later he went to the Mediterranean on the first of a series of sunshine cruises at taxpayers expense over 12 years.

And while he claimed he had become "a hermit" and took two minutes to walk 15 metres he was actually a keen cyclist and bragged to his sister-in-law that the lycra shorts he wore showed off his physique.

He was in a cycling club going on lengthy bike rides several times a week and even threatened to sue his local council in 2010 after suffering an accident while out riding his bike.

Jailing 64-year-old McEntee today for two years Judge Andrew Menary, QC, said that the fraud "funded an obviously lavish life style."

It's blindingly obvious that Fish means, quite rightly, that the checking process is lacking in effectiveness. If you can't see that, it's you who has the problem.

It takes months to catch them out as they have to do checks and investigate if they are working on the side etc.
They deserve to be caught and made pay back every penny .

I know of a couple. Have tried many times to get some action taken.

To the best of my knowledge, it never happened!
