You know they will be unemployed? How? One of them could turn out to be a tycoon and bring in lots of taxes, not to mention he could provide employment for a large number of people.

However unlikely. So best to keep breeding 'em, to improve the chances of one coming good?

Interesting
Total rail industry income in 2020-21 was £20.7 billion, a 2.4% increase from 2019-20. This consisted of £16.9 billion from government funding, £2.5 billion from passengers (£1.8 billion of fares and £0.6 billion of other train operator income), and £1.3 billion from other sources.30 Nov 2021

From the gov.
Yet more
Debt 2018

How does that work

That seems to be used a lot in other areas.

Debt now - mentions that it may reach £500b. Can't find current.

How many families in the UK have 7 kids? You can probably count them with as many fingers and toes you have. You are worrying over nothing. If some are talented in breeding, then let them. It won't change the fact the UK population number is stagnating and the need to import refugees and immigrants.

We maybe wouldn't need to import so many, if they got the idle [email protected]@ers of their backsides.

So you have the figures for the Muslim and catholic communities that makes that statement run true, must say it comes as a surprise.

Taking care of 7 kids 24/7 is significantly harder to do than whatever job you have. Its so hard to do that the parents suffered severe depression and resorted to criminality. You are unjustified to say those parents are not doing their share for the society

I don't. Cost of living makes it virtually impossible. If you have the numbers, then let's hear it.

Muslim men can have four wives but Muslim women are restricted to their restrictions, so there can be a myriad of numbers apportioned to a 'family' which don't show up on a census.

That's irrelevant from the stand point of benefits claiming.

The actual data suggests the problem is negligible:

A DWP spokesman said: 'There are fewer than 1,000 polygamous marriages in the UK and only a small percentage of these are claiming social security benefit.

Seems you can do some googling when need be. Thought so , so all this counting of digits on hands and toes is as ridiculous as it originally sounded when first put forward by yourself.

I would agree about the amount of effort needed, by why then, asking the obvious question - have seven kids?
