Skip to comments.Don't expect us to pay benefits for unlimited babies, says minister
Posted on 10/07/2010 9:05:46 AM PDT by Niuhuru
A Cabinet minister was branded 'abhorrent' today after saying that the state should not provide limitless support to benefits claimants with large families. Campaigners reacted with fury after the Culture
Secretary Jeremy Hunt savaged the policy of sizeable handouts totalling more than the average household earns. Mr Hunt claimed that the Government's proposed cap on benefits reflected the need for claimants to 'take responsibility' for their children.

Atlas Shrugged (getting to be monotonous how much reality is coming to ape this book)
The car company that went socialist - every baby born to an employee became looked at as a burden, not a joy.
Who branded him abhorrent?
The people who have too many kids and are getting the checks, or those who have to chip in to pay for the little Bastids?
Common Sense is “abhorrent” in the Land of Eng, a farcical habitat.
Even Spain cut back on their baby payouts
‘The breakfast supplied by the council isn’t like proper hot food. It’s usually eggs, beans, tinned tomatoes and cereal, which isn’t really enough for us all and we have to heat it up ourselves.’
The horror! :O
Let’s see if this fellow has the balls to stick to his guns.
The same attack format is used here: a candidate/politician makes a common-sense comment about an ridiculous entitlement. The response is strident and shrill with claims of racism or callousness.
Said politician then usually backs-down OR - they fight it and engage in debate. They are often frightened into backing-down, because the media is instant and loud, while honest debate and support usually take slightly longer to reveal themselves.
No entitlements and the incentive for self-survival and even the incentive to get ahead with the sky as a limit...and every baby is a joy and benefit to society.
The difference between socialism and free market capitalism.
Here’s the unspoken backstory, y’all:
They obligingly show a picture of the nice Anglo family with all those kids — but the FACT is that in Britain (as in the US and the rest of Europe), the birth rate for Anglos is not too high, but too LOW. (<2 per couple; won’t even sustain the culture over time.)
By far the largest number of outsized families in Britain (and throughout Europe) are “Asian”. That is to say, MUSLIM.
...and now you know the REST of the story.
Socialism destroys everything. They could have solved every national problem by sticking to a free society, encouraging unselfish behavior, and relying on voluntary acts of charity to help the poor. This led to nothing but prosperity in the USA.
Britain is so far gone into corruption and insanity that anyone who raises a child there is a total fool. They wonder why the children grow up to be “Chaves” when they hit the teen years. British children have nothing to look forward to but misery, slavery, disease, and death.
Britain is already a Muslim country. Europe is a Muslim continent. Whenever leftists take over, so do their other murderous buddies.
If native Brits want to have kids, they should move to a free country. They are already refugees in their own nation.
sorry for the adjustment but my babies are not a burden to me or any other hardworking taxpayer.
Everywhere that has social programs is going to be forced t do this.A family with 10 kids should not get anymore than one with 2 because contrary to what the liberals think Wefare queens will have more for the benefits and not give it a secnd thought.If limits were put in place you’d rapidly see a decline in the birthrate of the welfare class.
How ‘bout a lifetime cap on entitlements? They can have as many kids as they want, but it just makes their bennies run out faster...
Well, now the immigrants will have to PAY for their children and not be able to mooch. I am sure more native born Brits will be born once they aren’t breaking their backs to support one bunch after another.
The minister won’t. Too many murderous taxpayers out there who would string him up if he did relent.
Oh the people knew that, just not the politicians.

Same thing in the US...
It pays more to get welfare etc for a large family than go to work...
The benefitsa go on and on...
Free medical, dental, school lunches even in the summer...
Free outings, entertainment for the kids...
Put on lots of free Christmas presen, Angel tree, new clothing lists etc from churches and organizations..
How many new bicycles does a child need ???
But the struggling family that works ???
No free anything...
By far the largest number of outsized families in Britain (and throughout Europe) are Asian. That is to say, MUSLIM.
Muslims with their limit of FOUR wives plus FOUR lots of kids...
Wasnt there a move a while back to limit how many wives a muslim could claim and get bennies for in Britian ???
The Muslims find countries with generous welfare systems,
then move there and start having huge families, 8+ children, in order to affect the demographics,
and eventually have a voting majority to take over the
country without firing a shot.
Well, with this and other measures, I suppose they’ll have to return to Saudi Arabia, or Africa and go back to relying on foreign aid.
” and we have to heat it up ourselves.”
Mentality of dependency.
I don’t know where I read it or heard it, but the gene pool in Europe has been devastated over the years. The true warriors with a will to fight were all killed off in wars and now Europe and the UK are left with a bunch of sniveling liberals. The only part of Europe that still has strong genes are the Eastern Europeans although the Russian warriors were greatly diminished.
I guess that is why I cringe at casualty reports. We are losing some of our best in the Middle East.
If our politicians were more results oriented, then I am sure that we would have won this years ago.
I DON'T THINK IT WILL HAPPEN HERE BUT NOT FOR THE LACK OF TRYING BY THE DEMOCRATS!!!
From what I have read, the Military of the Russian Republic will be majority Muslim by 2016 and the rest of the country by 2040. That sounds outrageous but the demographic trends don't lie.
That is down right scary. The only thing left to fight them off are the drunken soccer fans.
Asian here can mean Oriental OR those from the Indian sub continent, and of the latter, that can just as easily mean Hindu or Sikh as it does Muslim. In fact Asian to most British and Irish means the former: Hong Kong Chinese, Thais, Koreans etc.
Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims from India, Pakistan or Bangladesh are usually referred to coming from ‘the Indian sub continent’ or simply the single country of origin.
Why is so many Americans believe so much rubbish?. The Muslim population of Britain is 3%. Yet I read posts here which tell me that 25% of Britain is Muslim.
Being overly PC to a minority dosent mean that minority has somehow conquered that country.
‘Britain is so far gone into corruption and insanity that anyone who raises a child there is a total fool. They wonder why the children grow up to be Chaves when they hit the teen years. British children have nothing to look forward to but misery, slavery, disease, and death.’
Oh, and its spelled ‘chavs’.
Perhaps you should stop reading rubbish and come over to Britain and actually see the country and the people for yourself. You know, you might just be surprised that we arent the third world hellhole you think we are.
Then why did you British let your once great country go to hell? We are fighting back over here and I suggest you start doing the same. Instead of fighting it, your people took what was dished out to you by the liberals and commies in your country.
Where are the protests when an immigrant from BFE or wherever comes to your country and gets a free mansion on the taxpayer because she has 6 kids? Yeah that is great when a hard working man who works in a factory can barely afford a coldwater flat because of paying taxes so someone can live in a mansion.
I have been to England and love its rich history and people because that is my history too. However, I am saddened by what I see as a captitulation. Time for a Tea Party there.
Asian in Britain = Indian sub continent origin. ie Muslims AND hindus.
Stop worrying. The proposition is a total load of twaddle. Genetics doesn’t work like that.
They can’t do that...their beloved leader has warned them against traveling to Europe...
That's Mohammad as in Mohammad Allah Akbar and all infidels can go straight to hell (or Inverness as far as the Islamofacists with first names like Mohammad are concerned).
And if you tell me that I have spelled Inverness or any other word incorrectly, then I say don't chance the subject and deal with the situation!!!
In the U.S. of A., if the guys with first names like Mohammad want to take us over they will have to fight to the last Mexican to get there!!!
Not its not.
That myth came from tabloid misreadings of the Office of National Statistics figures on British forenames.
I keep seeing this myth and despite ssaying its not true on FR, up it pops.
If you don't have enough faith in the future to have children, the future will belong to those who do. Demographics don't lie like Politicians.
Its not true.
That name IS the most popular amongst British Muslims, but its neither the top name in London or the UK. I can assure you of that. The top names are still good Anglo-Saxon/Celtic names like Jack, John etc.
As for population, 3-4% of the UK is Muslim (and that includes white and black converts). Britain and Europe (even France) will NOT become majority Muslim in this century or ever.
