What? Please do some research into the benefit system before bleating on! A single mother with one child will receive her income support of £71.50
per week, Child benefit of £21.80 per week, Child tax credit of £59.40 per week, that's £152.70 per week to support her and her child. On top of
that her rent is paid and her council tax is paid. My rent in the private sector is £104 per week for a two bed flat, my council tax is £38 per
week, this is average for the area I live in, obviously I don't get child benefit or child tax credit as my daughter is a full time student, but as I
am on ESA I get £100 per week. I have to pay £6 per week of my rent and £5 per week of my council tax, which leaves me £89 per week to live on,
not a huge amount but doable, the woman with one child is getting the same...so what's the problem?
The gravy train I am referring to is for the women who choose to keep having child after child, getting these benefits for each child, therefore a
women with 6 children will be receiving £25,334 per year in her hand as her rent and council tax will still be paid...Do you really think that is
sheesh all of the socialists on here live in cloud cuckoo land, how the heck does all of this get paid for and you're suggesting people should just
carry on receiving money for doing nothing, breeding like rabbits!
I suggest you start living in the real world.
