Yes an old headline with a new twist, because tonight’s needs to be heard! Not something I would generally say. This is not necessarily the best or most frightening of tonight’s news.
• On 15 July 2011 a BNP article reported “Muslim Harems in Britain Cost Taxpayer Minimum of £5 Million Every Year” that figure is now set to rise! The Daily Mail is reporting that “Polygamous immigrant families to be paid more benefits after Government blunder. . . Immigrants with more than one wife will qualify for extra benefits under reforms to Britain’s welfare system, after an attempt to crack down on the problem backfired.”
• Polygamous marriages are recognised in the UK if they take place in countries where the practice is legal. This means mainly Muslim countries. Currently, the husband and first wife can receive £111.45 per week and any additional wives receive £36.65 per week. Under the Universal Credit system coming into force next year polygamous marriages are not recognised and additional spouses will be eligible for almost £70 a week.
• Anyway, polygamous marriages should not be recognised, but since they are the taxpayer should not be landed with the bill after all the Qur’an in Sura 4:3 tells the faithful “..you shall be content with only one, or with what you already have. Additionally, you are thus more likely to avoid financial hardship.”
• Got it wrong did they? I think not. Someone knew exactly what they were doing, didn’t they Mr Cameron? Didn’t they?
• The Government got it wrong again! Did they? Did they?
• Twins guilty of funding terror
• Lack of funding may force Syrian refugees into Europe
• It’s not just the British, the Belgians do it too!
• Power Down in India
• Syrian Christians fearful of Aftermath
• Thought for the Day – An old problem and new thoughts
• And finally – new hats for old! Bring out your rag and bones!
