Don't want to get involved in the primary argument but just a brief comment, Daisy I would have thought finding a job that allows you to work from home would be difficult?

No idea ... but I'd have been having a look-see.  There's always something out there, even if it is typing the most basic stuff.  There's lots of at-home job-sharing going on too - just have to get out there and get after it.

That isn't how it works. No one is going to employ me to work 4 hours a day from home.

Ever heard of job sharing?

I was at the job centre today, discussing possible options.

Again, don't presume to know me. Your ignorance is pretty astounding. Do you think you're telling me anything I haven't already thought about/explored? It's easy to be in your position and tell me what I can and can't do. How can you possibly know my circumstances?

Doing what, Daisy? By all means explain how this would happen.

And the same applies to me

You're the one who brought it up. Pretty sure it would have been discussed today if it was a viable option.

Why didn't I claim until 7 years after I originally got arthritis, since I'm apparently such a sponge?

I believe Hazel said this was their second child together.

I have no problem with couples having as many children as they can afford - I just don't think the British taxpayer should be subsidising them. 

and I believe I said that they were only in a council house which means they're still paying their own rent, just in a council property, and as far as I'm aware only get child benefit apart from that.
My comment was specifically aimed at discussion on the child benefit only, yes this was an accident but I'd prefer they had it...and on their income they will still receive whatever the new benefit is for this child, than decided 'oh how awful we can't afford it and we'll be such a strain on the British taxpayer lets abort.'

Predictable  ... whenever you have nothing to say you resort to insults - or, at least what you perceive as insults.

Pretty sure your smug statement about having to work was an insult.

I believe Council Houses are subsidised by the Tax Payer, but perhaps I'm wrong about that.

Not quite sure how abortion got into this discussion, other than the fact that you brought it up.  Also, I'd think you would "prefer that they had it" based on your religion - however, I'm not sure how your preferences enter into their decisions about the size of their family.

Equally ignorant, yes.
