Hmmm. Sorry if this offends, but...
I sort of agree with some of what's been said on here, but I also have a sneaky feeling that if you came from a country where there was little employment and no welfare, you would do anything you could to improve your kid's lives and try to give them some sort of future. I know I would. We are fortunate that we come from a welfare state and none of us really know what it's like to starve. (I'll ignore the bit about the hunger strike - I agree that is totally stupid) But surely anyone is entitled to do what they can to try to improve the lives of their children? If the UK (or any other) government is stupid enough to hand out money the way they do, they are at fault, not the people who receive those benefits.
Be honest, if someone walked up to you in the street and said 'Here's 100 quid, have it with my blessing' wouldn't you take it?
I grew up in Hounslow which must be close to 100% Asian by now and was pretty dark 50 years ago when I was a kid. I constantly heard complaints about them from the rapidly diminishing white population - my own grandmother was probably the worst offender - but it only happens because the government allow it to happen. And who votes the government in? There needs to be a huge reform of the benefits system, and they need to stop kow-towing to the EU, but IMHO we should stop blaming the people who take advantage and put the responsibility where it belongs.
