Child benefit is a handout from this Government which rewards people for having children paid for by taxpayers
If u want children you should have enough money to bring them up without sponging from me & other taxpayers why do u expect people to pay for your choice to have children? Single mothers here saw the handout as easy money an easy way to get rent allowance or top of the housing list & more things for nothing, Asylum seekers latched on to it in their droves & more recently our EU neighbors, have u ever seen as many non nationals pushing buggies?(many paid for by taxpayers too) for e.g the dickie money monthly payment is the same amount u would get in a month for an average job in East European countries! 7,000 non nationals struck off in 2008 Irish/African/EE child benefit recipients all have one thing in common you are all spongers .the exception is people who have worked all their life & paid their taxes here yes u are entitled to child benefit but
I hate spongers...
