(EXPRESS) — It’s madness: She beats jail and can now claim double.

Britain’s farcical benefits system was exposed yesterday after a cheating mother was told she can now claim twice as much rather than go to jail.

Joanne Gibbons, 23, fiddled £3,140 in income support while holding down two jobs, a court was told.
