  1. There is a well known ‘urban myth’ in UK, that a 23 year old pregnant unmarried mother visits her clinic. When asked her occupation, she replies ‘none’.
    ‘But my nan says I’m the family breadwinner’
    “Why is that?” asks the Sister.
    “Well, I’ve got six children, and because I have no job, I need assistance, so I get State Support, but, having six children, the system demands some receive care, so my Mum fosters three and my Nan fosters two, and for that they receive £380 ($550) per child per week.”
    Those figures are correct, and compute to an average annual payment per child of £20G ($30G).
    Carefully managed, it will provide a good standard of living, unless there are habits to be fed.

    Sadly such moronic mothers are not a rarity. They leave school relatively dumbed down, with no job prospects, often encouraged to get pregnant (if not already up the spout) to become eligible for entitlement to State Assistance.

    This underclass are often brought up in a, unstable violent/drug/cigarette/alcohol/junk food based environment with children viewed as merely a channel for income, and exposed to the dangers of unstable relationships, as borne out by the deaths from negligence, violence and malnutrition.

    Again, the loony Liberal Left have encouraged it, and it will be their Legacy for the future polarisation of Society for which they try to make the taxpaying remainder feel guilty.
