I do apologise but I just checked the numbers and they are in fact 4.8 millions and increasing, which means by Christmas 2010 it will hit the five millions.
Now lets be clear about it. This number, as far as I know do not include children and retired people. It is the number of people who should be in productive work.
Most certainly the land of milk and honey and easy life. All these paradise is provided to us and, we can thank for it the family courts for destroying the family and politicians who are drooling after hard nuts feminists. Now if they think they will solve the problem by reducing the money they are paying out, they are wrong because it will only generate anger and resentment and an increase in feral children because all these people has learned is a sense of entitlement without responsibility .
There is only one way to tidy this mess up, and that is that whoever is in power must bring back the sense of responsibility to all these people. That can only be achieve by giving back the authority to the father, and getting the goverment off the father's back.
