skinink: Just let her squat in a rich person's mansion.

Problem is, every time she squats three or four people fall out of her.

StoPPeRmobile: MichiganFTL: GoldSpider: Marine1: They get a better one than produce stocker at a Walmart in northeastern Missouri.

Ask any of the college graduates working multiple minimum-wage jobs just to pay off their predatory school loans.

The banks have already robbed them of their financial freedom.  I don't see how robbing them of their reproductive rights is going to help.

Two things come to mind:

Anthropology major? To teach? The cycle continues.

Underwater basket weaving?

Is there a statistic which shows the top 5 degrees with the highest unemployment and/or lowest wages? I'll try to duck the English and sociology majors coming out in defense.

BubbleMarket adjustment. The pain you are experiencing is the value of your education lowering.

I was one of the people who got their masters and took a crappy job during it bc I couldn't find crap with my degree. 80k later I do have a good job, but honestly that's only because of the experience I had at the crappy job giving me my foot in the door. I don't use anything I learned on a daily basis from my education, but I sure pay my monthly bills because they say I am edumacated now.  When are we going to give up this 'everyone must go to college' thing and realize some people are not cut out for it and it will be worse for them. Lets promote vocational schools and apprenticeships to learn trades again.

Marine1: I don't think she has political leanings that necessarily follow a defined party line.

Not her, necessarily, but enough people that they get elected and pass policies that force people into poverty.

'Welfare should not be an alternative to work yet clearly it is for Iona Heaton. The system should help someone find employment, not subsidise them to avoid it.'

Says someone who obviously hates the poor, and children, and feels that the government has the right to restrict a mother's reproductive rights.

GleeUnit: Honest question:  If you can't afford a house in England, the gov't just... Buys you a house?  Really?  What are the limitations on this?

Okay, first off, what is the gov't supposed to do with 10 children? Find foster homes?

swingerofbirches: This article assumes no critical thinking on the part of the reader.

Why was this article written? Why did the subject agree to be interviewed?

Second off, she probably agreed because nobody in her right mind would think that a mother of 10 has time for a job, or would prioritize wage labour over 10 kids. You'd have to be farking insane to think that a manager can have a slice of her attention given her do-do list.

Prey4reign: Why shouldn't society properly support these two lovebirds and their brood?  After all, why punish the children because their parents are legally blind?

Third off, the article is obviously a coded message of hate for people with epilepsy. They are genetic free riders or something, implies the article.

Shame on you Farkers who are suggesting that this story may be less that entirely accurate.
I have many British friends, and they assure me that the Mail is every bit as fine an example of journalism as our own Enquirer and World Net Daily!
And very few of them are transvestites.

swingerofbirches: Why would a woman who was going to be scorned by the public go to the Daily Mail and say, "Please write about me leeching off the government."

Maybe her time spent reading Fark have convinced her that the public would be sympathetic to her plight.
