Polygami belønnes af det offentlige i UK

Polygamous husbands settling in Britain with multiple wives can claim extra benefits for their “harems” even though bigamy is a crime in the UK, it has emerged.

Opposition MPs are demanding an urgent change in the law, claiming that the Government is recognising and rewarding a custom which has no legal status and which is “alien” to this country’s cultural traditions.

Officials said yesterday a review was now under way into whether the state should continue to pay out income support, jobseeker’s allowance and housing and council tax benefits to ‘extra’ spouses.

If a husband and his wives arrive and settle in Britain having wed in a country where polygamy is legal, then the UK benefits system recognises his extra wives as dependents and pays them accordingly.

Officials were unable to say when the rules were brought in, claiming they had “evolved over decades”.

Tory MP for Monmouth David Davies condemned the arrangements as “appalling”, and called for an immediate halt to the payments.

“It’s disgraceful that our benefits system is recognising and rewarding it. Why are some people in Government falling over themselves to undermine every tradition that has made this country what it is?”

A DWP official insisted the rules did not “reward” polygamy, as second wives receive less in benefits than single women. A single person can claim just under £60 per week in jobseeker’s allowance, while couples receive up to £92.80, but each ‘additional spouse’ in a polygamous marriage receives an extra £33.65.

Så skatteborgerne har i årtier betalt til polygami efter regler, der ikke er indført i lovgivningen på legal vis. Nååå – men der er jo rabat på de ekstra hustruer. Så er det jo ikke en belønning. Gad vide hvor mange børn, der er i sådanne familier? Det foregår flere andre steder i Europa. Danmark?

Som tegningen antyder: hvem betaler for de fraskilte koner, hvis manden forelsker sig i et andet harem?

  1. I liberalismens navn bør begrænsningen til kun een kone, afskaffes!

    Lad folk dog selv om, hvor mange koner de vil have. Folks ægteskab skal staten sgu da ikke blande sig i, sålænge det foregår frivilligt.

  2. Børnetilskud osv? Disse her er importerede, hvem betaler deres ophold? I UK åbenbart staten.

    I princippet har du ret, hvis staten ikke indblandes – men et er teori – et andet er praksis 😀

  3. Hvis mænd skal have flere koner, må de selv forsørge dem alle, også de fraskilte, og kun børnetilskud til et hold børn.

  4. Hvad nu, hvis konen vil have flere mænd, hvad vil I sige til det, i små ridegale liderbasser?
