How many in a flat?

Recommended Posts

7 in the family so potentially 5 children.
Only very wealthy British people could afford a house big enough to give privacy to that many children in London.
They could move somewhere cheaper rent a 4 bed house for ~ £500 instead of the £1500-2000 rent would be in East Ham.
They should have stopped after 1 or 2 children. I would love more children but would not be able to afford the same lifestyle for them if we had more. I guess we should be paying more tax so other people can have the children we didn't have.

Crazy country.

  • We've got a massive problem brewing because youngsters with jobs are living in cramped accommodation and putting off having children, and even when they do have kids they'll only have one or two.
  • At the same time we've got people playing the WTC game and having loads of children, and then demanding massive houses from the council.
  • And at the same time we've got families that have kids for weird ideological reasons that end up in terrible cramped living conditions.

It is all backwards, and made worse (encouraged) by government policy over the last 20 years or so.  It could probably be resolved (ie, stop the problem getting worse) in an instant, but there's no will to make these hard decisions.

They aren't hard decisions - this is planned.

Lived in the flat since she was born? So lack of privacy doesn't stop more children?

People in the UK used to have large families partly because there was little/no pension security so this was the only option. These immigrants know the future better than we do...

I worked out the missing name - it's Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon
