Sue, 43, welcomed Bonnie Raye into her king-sized clan after a 12-minute labour. Sue and Noel Radford with 19 of their children at their converted care home She said: “I thought I’d need more than gas and air but there wasn’t any time.” Her other kids were thrilled when she brought 8lb 4oz Bonnie back to the family’s ten-bedroom converted care home in Morecambe, Lancs. Sue said: “They were all fighting over the first cuddle. It’s such a lovely moment when you bring a newborn home and the others are all lined up ready to hold her.” Her baker husband Noel, 47, said: “I don’t

You had to look for it, but it´s there:

FTA: "The couple, who support themselves with their bakery and claim only child benefit, had their first baby when Sue was just 14."

So, they´re supporting themselves, but not their children? Who´s supporting their children? I like kids. I even like other people´s kids. I don´t like paying for other people´s kids.

And because I like kids, I will point out the glaringly obvious. Raising a classroom instead of a family denies each of those children the kind of responsible care and attention an individual child would normally want. There are many forms of neglect. One of them is the narcissism that you are able to raise more children than you actually can. When this happens with cats, we call the SPCA.

I wish them well, but I also wish they´d shown better judgement.

You got it No. 2. I didn’t want to be the Grinch on this. These parents are gaming the system. For each child at home, they receive £20.70 per weekfor the first child, and £13.70 per week for each child thereafter as long as the household income is £49999 /year max. So do the math. Of course, maybe they just like kids and like spending most of their lives changing nappies. I love babies as much as the next guy, but this is overdone. Sorry!

Lets hope that at least one of these kids carries on the tradition of having kids themselves. the UK is quickly disappearing and to those who say the couple has over done the parenting routine, I say that some folks haven´t been paying attention.

Nobody complains when the muslims have buckets of kids and lives in government housing, so why complain about the self sufficient English culture trying to save itself?

The family is not self-sufficient. They state that they receive the UK’s “child benefit”.

Child benefit is a tax-free payment that is aimed at helping parents cope with the cost of bringing up children.
One parent can claim £20.50 a week for an eldest or only child and £13.55 a week for each of their other children.
The payments apply to all children aged under 16 and in some cases until they are 20 years old.


A relatively recent restriction:

In detail, the benefit received will be recouped gradually as the income of the highest earning parent rises above £50,000, with the child benefit being eroded completely once their income is £60,000 or more.

I don´t really "get" why any of us would be in a position to say that x - number of children is "too many".

The kids are healthy and happy. The father is working and supporting the family. The mom is bubbling with joy. No trouble with the police or the neighbors or the bankruptcy court.

And the "child benefit" (which so many L-dotters seem to resent) isn´t really sponging the system any more than a per-child tax deduction is sponging the system.

So you think we should all give up our tax deductions?

This family is doing a great possible service for their nation: they are providing its future. God bless them, I say.

Sigh. There is a big difference. A tax deduction reduces the amount of tax they pay from the money they earn. A tax payment increases the amount of money I pay to them from the money I earn.

I thought I was pretty clear: I like kids. I would probably even like these kids. They sound like a grand bunch from the happy-go-lucky tone of the story. But there is no no serious attempt in this story to evaluate the impact of all this on the individual children.

Any country with a withered, wimpy fertility rate of less than 2.1 TFR (and the UK´s is way down in the hole at a suicidal 1.66) needs proactive, robust measures to increase natality if they´re going to survive at all.

$25 per week, and that´s tops, for each kid is not a bank-busting extravagance. That´s less than $4 a day, might not even be enough to pay for the bubble & squeek and the occasional syllabub.

Or maybe you think differently? Will there always be an England?

At least the Duggers and the Bates here in the USA support their own families. I´m all for people having all the children they can afford to raise, just don´t expect me to pay for them. They must have a lousy bakery, if they earn less than the £49,999/year maximum to receive child benefits. I´m convinced they must also be getting a housing subsidy, because where are you going to find a house for 19 people based on that income?

#20, there really is no difference from a deduction and a subsidy in terms of the effect on taxpayers. Both result in less tax that has to be made up by everyone else. Whether or not someone has an income is irrelevant unless they make enough to pay tax.

#23, you are correct. These people are not tax payers; they are tax takers. If they are making less than £50,000 a year in order to qualify for the child tax payment, they are paying in at most £8000 a year in income tax and £4000 a year in social insurance taxes.

That doesn´t even begin to cover the cost of what they are taking out. In the UK, they don´t pay for their health care, but it still costs. The estimated cost of just delivering a baby is £1755, which does not include pre and postnatal care. Since they´re having roughly one baby per year, most of the money they pay in for "social insurance" is gone up front. Others pay for all their remaining health care costs.

Likewise, the £8000 they pay in income tax averages out to about £400 per head per year. There is no way that amount of money covers the true cost of the government services they are consuming for each individual in their house. Education, defense, social services--you name it, and someone else is paying for it on behalf of these folks.

As I said above, they are not net tax payers; they are net tax takers. So when you add child benefit payment on top of that, they are taking about £700 per child per year directly out of other people´s pockets.

Meanwhile, let´s say a rich type with 21 kids pays £5 million dollars in taxes. Even if he gets a child benefit payment of £700 per year for each one, he is still a net tax payer. He puts in substantially more than he takes out. In other words, it doesn´t come out of my pocket, and it´s none of my business how many kids he has.

Voter support for “Medicare for All” has collapsed by 50 percent over the last month, according to polling from Politico/Morning Consult. Until this month, the Democrats’ single-payer “Medicare for All” scheme enjoyed majority support in this same poll going back months. But now that the ugly details of the program are actually being debated and publicized, net approval for the scheme has been cut in half. “From January to February, net support for single-payer health system fell over 50% to 12 points,” the pollster reports. “Although ‘Medicare for all’ enjoyed net support of 27 percentage

In her tweet, Sarsour listed Omar along with five other high-profile figures who have drawn condemnation over recent months for views critical of Israel, including views seen by some as anti-Semitic. “Marc Lamont Hill, Tamika Mallory, Angela

Democrats looking to score points against President Donald Trump this week focused attention on data from the government that showed refund checks going out to early filers were smaller than they were a year ago. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) falsely claimed that smaller refunds indicated that the tax cuts amounted to a “middle-class tax hike.” The smaller refund checks, however, were not indicators that taxes have gone up. In fact, two-thirds of American households got a tax cut this year. For middle-class families with children, over 80 percent got tax cuts. A smaller refund check merely indicates that early tax-filers

Polling proves that public trust in the establishment media has collapsed in every imaginable way during Trump’s presidency. There is no doubt anymore that corporate media’s ongoing assault against President Trump has backfired in a way that journalists will never recover from. An IBD/TIPP poll asked about “the public’s perception of the mainstream news media” and found that “fully half the country says its trust in the media decreased over the past two years,” while only eight percent say they have more trust in the media. Inside that overall number, the poll finds a plurality of Independents (49 percent) have lost trust

President Donald Trump has mocked Democrats’ new radical policy, the “Green New Deal,” which calls for the elimination of fossil fuels in a decade, plus guaranteed income for all Americans “unwilling” to work. The plan, introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday, quickly gained the endorsement and co-sponsorship of several major presidential candidates, as well as eleven Senators and 67 House representatives. Republicans are thrilled at the prospect of their rivals embracing a policy that promises to wipe out massive portions of the American economy, and the president is no exception.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday.

While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to

Andrew McCabe on Friday denied that he knew of an effort to oust President Trump using the 25th Amendment, saying he never had “any extended discussions” about the matter and was unaware of such talks. “At no time did Mr. McCabe participate in any extended discussions about the use of the 25th Amendment, nor is he aware of any such discussions,” his spokeswoman, Melissa Schwartz, said in a statement on Twitter, adding that his remarks about the issue were taken out of context. She said McCabe “was present and participated in a discussion that included a comment by Deputy Attorney
