"They" need to do the same thing here, Penners.
Having said that, I fully agree with cutting child benefit off for people who have more than two children, whether they have jobs, or are on benefits.
If you want children, then make sure you can afford them before you pop them out.
The guy who does a lot of building maintenance at my work was telling me the other day that there's a guy who lives opposite him. Got 5 daughters.
The 17yr old said to Gerry the Builder the other day that she had a new boyfriend..... "I can't wait to get pregnant, then I can move out of this house".
THAT is no reason to bring a child into this world.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
