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.

The older ones have that “you OWE me” look.....by the look of the clothes, etc., I’d say that 600 pounds/week is doing okay...

I’ll second that!

Sadly, the ones that should be have to get to bed at a decent hour and don’t have the time for it.

She’d been better off with a system: “Mealticket1, Mealticket2.....and so on.”

Let the older children babysit and she should go to work on the 3rd shift cleaning businesses, stocking shelves, ect. Give her one pound for everyone she earns

Actually, you’d be surprised what you can find here in Europe.

In Berlin, in my neighborhood, we have a shop called “M99”, a rather typical anarchist/lefty shop. In front of the store, there’s a free box, kind of like a donation box.

Here’s what I’ve found there;

An Armani three-piece suit, charcoal grey (brand new, dry-cleaned).
Bruno Magli shoes (not my size, sad to say, they were like new).
Solomon athletic shoes (they were my size; brand new).
A full-length, vintage, black leather men’s trenchcoat.
Levi’s jeans, D&G jeans, Pierre Cardin jeans, excellent shape.
An Apple iPhone (3g, with charger).
An older IBM ThinkPad T23 (what I’m using right now to write this).
Innumerable books in English.
A Casio Edifice wristwatch (needed battery). In box.

That being said, this baby-making machine could live quite good is she’s careful with her money; I wonder what she’s spending it on.

In that case, abolish abortion.

In my small town, we have three thrift shops filled with designer clothes, sets of dishes and kitchen items small appliances, furniture, toys, all new or in perfect condition.

Cheap, too. Really cheap. I’ve often thought if I ever had to start over, I could do very well.

All you need do is look closely around her eyes to see that.

Heh.

The kids don’t like they’re in bad shape, to be fair. What homelife is like, I have no idea.

I wonder how much it costs per annum to raise a child in the UK? She’s not paying rent, and from what I’ve read, that’s horrifically expensive so that’s one expenditure she doesn’t have to worry about. But, what does it cost to feed, clothe, etc., a child in merry olde England?

Yeah......Mealticket, Mealticket Jr., Mealticket the Third, etc.
I like that. :-)

The children have zombie eyes. Fetal alcohol effect, or just the blankness produced by a life of nothing but television-watching?

“Shardonnaie”

A hint as to her idea of foreplay

Seriously, she has a 17 yr old daughter and a 19 yr old lover?
Dayum, girl.

Laz is needed for the “I’d hit that, with a crowbar” graphic.

Agree, the eyes don't look good.

I'm no diagnostician, but I don't see obvious Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: flat midface, underdeveloped jaw, etc. I could be wrong. I think these may be angry/depressed faces: "I think there's supposed to be more, but I've no clue what it is."

Oh, and I fixed the apostrophe thingy. Thankee.

Depravity and hoodlum like behavior have no skin color. It is a matter of culture and values in both the US and UK, not skin color.
