    Shame his "bad back" doesn't make it too painful for him to have sex.

    Take the kids from them, force the mother into cheap labour in a Chinese sweatshop and then injure the mans back.

    Bad back since 1999, that is classic.
    Seriously have these people not heard of contraception?
    Then maybe they could have had a couple of kids and worked hard for a living..
    Haha yeah, the case of the 'bad back. Seriously...my aunt has no legs and can't walk properly yet chooses to work 9-5 when she could easily claim incapacity benefit and live sufficiently.

    The odd cases like this are total bs...ok maybe he can't do physical jobs but surely can work at home from a computer, for example.

    I'm going to have to say that people like this ( and yes he is in the minority) really brass me off!!. For crying out loud contraception is FREE....there really is no need to have 15 children.The guy is obviously lying about his bad back, he can have sex without any problems so it cant hurt him that much!.They get 30k a year for doing diddly squat......seriously they are extracting the urine out of the system.

    I think that the government ought to stop child benefit after the second child personally.A lot of people fail to see that the more children you have the more in other benefits you can receive too.


    I bet they wouldnt have 15 kids if they were both employed!!!

    They get £30,000, thats how they manage to afford food

    Or am I missing the point of your post (likely since i'm tired)?
    They must have other expenses aside from food though.

    And it's twelve of them... It costs my family £200 per week for food for four of us, so for them it would be like £600... that's £31,200 a year. Uhh.

    They must shop at Lidl or something.

    Your food bill is ****ed up.

    Either your parents are alcholics and calling it "food" or you're all morbidly obsese and shop at Waitrose. :lolwut: [no honestly, a family can happily eat on £100 / week. Obvs not the clan featured in the article but 200/week would probably cover it. I don't think parents like that buy their children steaks all the time - do you? ]

    Their costs are very managable when you take into account that their housing costs are paid for.

    Honestly, if I was that mum, I wouldn't even be bothered serving food anymore. I'd just buy a trough, pour it all in and ring a bell at dinner time.

    Of course these people could work and should work, but they have realised that life is better on benefits.

    Why work for minimum wage and bring home £200 a week when you can get 30k on benefits ?

    If you can't afford to have children, then DON'T HAVE THEM! Definitely don't have 15!! Oh yeah, I'm sure his back is so bad that he can have enough sex to conceive 15 children!!
    This disgusts me. A free five bedroom house?

    What do they do with themselves?
    I would hate to be unemployed just because there would be eff all to do. Also, he is clearly lying and can work. Like Wagner from X factor
    Well they do have 15 children - I think that would keep them fairly busy.
