British unemployed get mani-pedis at taxpayer expense

Thanks to the Big Brother plan.
The scheme - in operation in Hereford, Worcester, Northumberland, Durham and Greater Manchester - is open to any single parent over the age of 18 who has been unemployed or on disability benefit for at least six months. They can choose from a range of treatments, including a massage, a haircut, new make-up, a facial, a manicure and even ear-piercing.

They can also claim a separate £30 handout to spend on a shopping trip for new clothes, and are eligible for free lunches and childcare.
What, no plastic surgery?
