‘Benefits Street’ star Deirdre Kelly, also known as ‘White Dee’, has been invited to this year’s Conservative Party conference, where she will take part in a discussion with a representative from the Department of Work and Pensions.

A Conservative Party spokesman said “We felt it was important to invite Miss Kelly to this year’s conference. Having attracted a certain amount of notoriety due to claims that she is abusing the benefits system in this country, we felt compelled to bring her into contact with some high-class benefits scroungers who really could teach her a few things. Hopefully, when the conference is over, she will have learned how to have her moat cleaned, her second home fully paid for, and her stables refurbished, all at public expense.”
