I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

House Rules by Jodi Picoult:

'When Emma Hunt's son is diagnosed with Asperger's, she knows she will do anything to help him...'

Does this honestly sound like the type of book I'd read?

'When Emma Hunt's son is diagnosed with Asperger's, she knows that the incumbent Labour government will fall over backwards to top up her diminishing bank-account balance.'

The book is called 'House Rules'.
From Wikipedia:

The novel is split up into different chapters which are written from five of the main characters' point of view.

Jacob Hunt is 18–years-old and is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, which is a form of very highly functioning autism. Jacob lives with his mother and brother, Emma and Theo Hunt. The novel goes on to explain that like most people with Asperger's Syndrome, he has to have a structured schedule for every day of the week and also has one area of interest, forensic analysis. It is explained in the novel that this topic consumes his life and is also known as his "hobby". He owns a police radio, and shows up at different crime scenes, helping the detectives figure out manner, mechanism and cause of the deaths of each victim. There are several parts in the book where Jacob sets up pretend "crime scenes" for the rest of his family to solve. After arresting and then letting go the first suspect, Mark Maguire, Detective Rich Matson asks to talk to Jacob. After getting the boy to admit he moved Jess Ogilvy's dead body, Jacob is arrested, and put on trial for murdering his social skills counselor. In court, the prosecutor, Helen Sharp, points out how all of Jacob's symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome are almost identical to the characteristics of those who are guilty. Also, it is proven in court that most of the evidence found relates back to Jacob being the murderer (ex: Jacob's fingerprints on the scene of the crime, an unlabeled crime scene evaluation identical to Jess's found in his notebook, and her backpack he retrieved from her home). At the end of the trial, Jacob testifies that he found Jess, dead in her bathroom and lying in a pool of her own blood. He admits to cleaning her, dressing her and placing her outside then cleaning the original scene up and creating a new one that will lead investigators in a different direction.


Sounds pretty boring.

Doling out benefits to American citizens living in America? You're right, those Labour scumbags were out of control! wink

Well, the Layabouts were paying child benefit for Polish kids who weren't even living in the country, so maybe not so far-fetched.
