This was MP Ben Bradley in 2012, he's now in trouble for it and has had to apologise.
I'm not sure why. The vasectomy bit might be a bit strong, but what's wrong with the rest of it?
No sector of the government spends more of taxpayers money than the Department of Work and Pensions, and as the House of Lords debates the proposed changes to the Welfare Programme itís important to make it clear that cuts are necessary and vital to not only our economy but to British Culture; benefits must become Ďa hand up, not a hand outí.
In terms of unemployment benefit the best proposal Iíve heard in a long time is the idea of an Ďallowance capí for families, so that total benefits would be limited to around £500 per week for families with children. Itís horrendous that there are families out there that can make vastly more than the average wage, (or in some cases more than a bloody good wage) just because they have 10 kids. Sorry but how many children you have is a choice; if you canít afford them, stop having them! Vasectomies are free.
There are hundreds of families in the UK who earn over £60,000 in benefits without lifting a finger because they have so many kids (and for the rest of us thatís a wage of over £90,000 before tax!) Take the example of the Smiths (actual name, not a cover story), who earn around £95 grand a year for their 10 kids under 15 years old, live for free in a council house and even have their meals delivered to them. Itís a tough life when, as Mrs Smith put it "we are so hard up that we can only afford one Nintendo Wii between all the kidsĒ. The family receive benefits totaling £44,954 a year. They also have a £950-a-week bed-and-breakfast deal where the council pays for breakfasts delivered to their home. This comes to £49,400, making a grand total of £94,354 a year. All in all around 190 families like this cost the taxpayer over £11 million a year!
People have to take responsibility for their own lives, and if they are struggling but working hard to help themselves then they should get help. But if they choose to have 10 kids they should take responsibility for that choice and look after them, not expect everyone else to foot the bill! Families who have never worked a day in their lives having 4 or 5 kids and the rest of us having 1 or 2 means its not long before weíre drowning in a vast sea of unemployed wasters that we pay to keep! Iain Duncan Smithís cap proposal is spot on!
Ive got to say I think its time they clamed down on the benefits culture thing theres clearly a lot of people who dont want to work.
You shouldnt have children if you dont have a job and the state has no business paying people to be mothers and fathers.
Indeed, and while they're at it they should stop these payments to horrible greedy 'foster parents'...who are paid something like £500 per week, per fostered child, for no reason that I can understand.
