    Yep, used to go to the school I previously worked at. Him and his brother nicknamed the ASBO twins due to the amount of trouble they caused in and out of school. Speaks volumes with "19 year old student.....4 year old son"
    Also since then a local/national (can't remember which) game store has given him a free Xbox One, showing that stupidity does indeed pay off.
    Why bother not getting a teenage girl pregnant, learning how to read and not being thick when you can just cry to the press and wait for stuff like this to pay off.

    OK so fair enough, it's probably a lie to make the sob story stick but a 4 year old playing computer games isn't unbelievable I don't think. Whether they'd play FIFA 14 however...

    Logically you would spend 450 on something like a Wii or a DS or something for a 4 year old... so yea the sob story is a load of ... xD

    I have no sympathy for these people

    Honestly, We mostly use the X-box for Kinect controls - 'X-box pause' when watching Sky Movies is win.
