A jobless father who has had 26 children by 15 different women while receiving more than £500,000 in benefits has criticised the governments welfare cap.
Peter Rolfe was criticised earlier this year when he claimed in an interview that his local councils refusal to give him a bigger house violated his human rights.
The 64-year-old is appearing in new Channel 5 series Benefits Britain: Life On The Dole, in which he claims his home in Newport, Isle of Wight, is not big enough and like a prison cell.
It had been reported that Rolfe had 18 kids by 10 women, but he has now revealed he has 14 boys and 12 girls.
It really is difficult to keep track when youve had 26 kids with so many different women, said Rolfe, who claims £800 a week in handouts.
Peter Rolfe: Father with 26 children attacks welfare cuts on Benefits Britain: Life On The Dole Channel 5 documentary Peter Rolfe has claimed the dole for 20 years (Picture: Channel 5) I think the benefits system is at fault, not the parents. The government said: we will pay for your child care so therefore you will stay at home.
He added: You have women that like you and once they get you they try to change you. They become pregnant and things like that.
Some of them I believe got pregnant on purpose. Its just so unfortunate so many women have fallen pregnant. Either Im virile or they just fall pregnant quickly.
In the new documentary, Rolfe also complains the government benefits cap means his children cant have the other stuff children get [like] PlayStations [and] Xboxes.
Episode two of Channel 5s Benefits Britain: Life On The Dole, airs on June 23 at 9pm.
Evolutionary fitness at work in the 20th and 21st centuries.
The SOB should have been put under years ago...along with the “British Dole Dept.”
Some of them I believe got pregnant on purpose. Its just so unfortunate so many women have fallen pregnant. Either Im virile or they just fall pregnant quickly. The problem is you, not the women.
He could use condoms or get a vasectomy. He and all the baby-mamas are in league to bilk the taxpayer. It’s their profession.
The women are also the problem if they knew what this guy was and slept with him anyway
They’re “also the problem” unless they were married to him and he had a job. Anyone who takes a chance of conceiving a child outside marriage is “also the problem.” Anyone.
Yeah, but he’s spread his genes more successfully than responsible me... and I’ll guess, responsible you. I agree he’s an asshat, but maybe the ends justify the means?
So do I, but you’d be surprised how rare they are these days. My neighbor was amazed when I showed her that she could use them to edge a fleece blanket for her daughter, instead of sewing a hem around.
Imagine what the girls/hags must look like.
Given his appearance, he must be very accurate.
Lol. They fall ill, fall down, fall apart, fall short, fall prey to, fall to pieces, fall guy, fall in line, fall flat, fall away from their faith, fallalalala...but "fall pregnant"?? Must be an
idiot idiom with the a certain class of Brits.
Oh, I think the application of pinking shears anywhere would affect his lifestyle! Mine are quite heavy and could be used as a bludgeon upside the head, for example.
“I’ve fallen pregnant and I can’t get up!”
