WE HAVE recently been informed by some newspapers that a man called Raymond Hull, who has 22 children by different mothers, avoided prison after telling the judge he needed to be at home to look after is latest baby.

He was initially jailed for 18 months for drug dealing, but the sentence was suspended because his latest girlfriend had to go out and work.

How has this come about? Taxpayers are having again having to support this person via child allowance for the upkeep of his children.

We are trying to reduce the population in this country, yet this man is appears not to understand the fundamentals of cutting down child birth. He should have the snip straight away.
