Depending on your religion- you can claim benefits for multiple wives



It appears that some claimants are claiming benefits for having several wives, although the amount of claimants (at the moment) is small.

What does the future hold for this latest benefit claim

Quote:
Chris Grayling, the shadow work and pensions secretary, said that the decision was "completely unjustifiable".

He added: "You are not allowed to have multiple marriages in the UK, so to have a situation where the benefits system is treating people in different ways is totally unacceptable and will serve to undermine confidence in the system.

"This sets a precedent that will lead to more demands for the culture of other countries to be reflected in UK law and the benefits system."

Actually, I can think of a number of British families who would benefit, if polygamy, polyandry or polyamoury were recognised in UK law.

Or, we could force them all out to work to contribute to their own arrangement.
