Peace Sandberg would have done OK from Brown's latest idea to bribe Britain with its own money. You may recall she popped back to her native Nigeria to buy a baby for £150 because she needed another Council house and her own child was too old to qualify her for priority status. With Brown's proposed £150 bribe to all child benefit claimants she would have been evens.
And Nigerians Oriyome and Tunde Williams would have been quids in; they were claiming child benefit for around 200 made-up children in a fraud that netted them around £1m. A Brownite bribe of £150 per fake claim could have earned them another new Audi.
Of course we also pay child benefit to EU nationals working here who have kids at home in their own countries. I'll bet £150 will come in quite useful in Gdansk or Budapest.
The women having the most babies in the UK in the past few years are immigrants. Here in my part of London they're west Africans; the streets, buses and markets, the surgeries, clinics and care centres are largely filled with Nigerian village girls having babies at my expense. Living in social housing at my expense. And now being bribed by Brown at my expense. Over 20,000 Africans have arrived in my London borough over the past 10 years; far, far too many and many more than we can afford to hand out free services and benefits to.
Oh dear. I'm starting to sound like the loathsome BNP. But it really can't continue. They must take their babies and go back to Lagos or Abuja and make the best they can of it; my wallet is feeling the strain of paying for them all. And Brown's corrupt bribery is the last straw.
