Hi, Graham. Very often children are victims of their parent’s behaviour. I wonder how this man is going to bring his children up.

Why am I not surprised that this man and his family are living on state benefits?

If you decide to have 5 children, then you should be able to support them yourself and not have to rely on taxpayers.

All his children will learn is that you don't have to earn a living, as the state will provide.
