Give me charity money pleads mother-of-TEN, insists 30,000-a-year benefits 'not enough'

FULL TITLE: Give me charity money pleads mother-of-TEN who insists her £30,000-a-year ($50,789.52)benefits are 'not enough'

A mother-of-ten who nets more than £30,000-a-year ($50,789.52) in benefits has begged for charity donations to help raise her brood - because her state 'wage' is not enough.

Moira Pearce, 34, has insisted her weekly government handout of £600 is insufficient to feed and clothe her children and she needs donations to survive.

The single mum - whose kids are fathered by four ex-partners - has insisted her range of child and family allowance benefits do not meet her weekly outgoings.

Her annual payments funded by the public purse work out at a staggering £31,200-a-year ($50,789.52) or £3,120 ($5,079) per child.

Ms Pearce - who lives with unemployed ex-boyfriend Mark Austin, 19, seven daughters and three sons - now wants extra help to save her from going under.

In a more rational society, lack of welfare money would have given her no choice but to marry some guy, make him happy enough to want to stay and help her raise the kids, and limit her brood to what she could afford.

The wrong people are rioting in both the U.K. and the U.S.

'She needs to sort her life out and get a job to start paying for herself.'

These people can't get jobs. They're unemployable.

British historian Max Hastings put it best in his recent brilliant article:

Years of liberal dogma have spawned a generation of amoral, uneducated, welfare dependent, brutalised youngsters

Long article but well worth the read. Applies to the American underclass just as equally.

I wonder how many of the daughters Mark Austin, 19, is having sex with.

Cut off all the "benefits," and let her get a job.

Find the fathers of all her children and bill them for the upkeep of their children

I disagree. These days "reproductive rights" lie strictly with the woman. The man can neither insist she carry his child to birth nor abort. He has absolutely no rights or say in the matter, yet he should pay? Can't have it both ways.

34 - ten kids - four (admitted) fathers - begging for more money because what she gets from England is not enough. Tie the tubes already!

The Hell you say!!!

Why, the quality of life is irredeemably diminished without taxpayer funded tattoos and smartphones!

(Do I really need a sarcasm tag?)

While we’re on the subject, I think I need to write to President Obama and ask for my Lamborghini. Gotta get my share of the pie, right?

Oh, wait.....I’m of Russian/Swedish and Italian extraction. No pie for me :-(

No doubt named after the fashion in which the said child was conceived.

Seriously, I knew a young lady in the Czech Republic (22 at the time) who named her daughter Stella.

After Stella Artois beer.

After she’d drank about nine of those, she wound up in the sack with Stella’s dad. No joke.....that’s what she told me, and she was being serious.

Wackiness knows no borders.

Well, she has stopped having children. She had Fallopian coils implanted after she was told her uterus was worn out and another pregnancy would kill her.

I am a descendant of a ‘coffin ship’ passenger.

I will accept a pied-à-terre in the City as partial reparation.

Can and do. That is exactly the situation in the US, and presumably in UK.

Which means your drunken one night stand can quite possibly put you on a legal and financial hook for at least 18 and possibly 22 years.

Which theoretically should give a male an incentive to be somewhat careful with whom he shares body fluids.

Amazing.....I retract my statement and repent. Those are some raucously ethnic names, though.....
