How dare a mum-of-six moan about her taxes?

Have your say

Jennifer Stanley’s comments regarding the black bin collection showed a general ignorance to how the UK will deal with the mountain of waste that it produces.

To have a child is a choice not a right, and I am happy for her to have six children, however, at £3,000 per annum per child, state education for her family will cost £18,000 pa before the bins are emptied.

So, as a non-child tax payer, I find it very offensive to have her claim that she does not see what she pays her taxes for.

Indeed, you are lucky the rest of us subsidise your family. So please, if you have a ‘trip to the tip’, think of it as a benefit we pay for.
