I thought he was up to 13 kids now, not 11? So he thinks we need to be shown how to feed a large family does he? Well, in return perhaps we should show him what a day's work is all about......

I'll say!

Hinch, the 'powers that be' have been struggling to get him into work for years....he is a very conniving character and, to be fair, a total embarrassment to many Rochdale Muslims who have chosen to distance themselves from him and all he stands for.

I have met his wife Noreen who is actually a very polite and affable woman.

I agree with Ishmael. The fault is with our insane welfare system which I am a supporter of when it protects those who it was designed for.

He is a real character and quite bright. I always think of him as a failed hunger striker after his fast outside the Town Hall years ago in the wake of the furore over Satanic Verses.

Perhaps he might have had twins if it were not for his well-publicised sleep-out? That would have got his batting average up to 13?

Evidently Mo too is a very affable chap in person albeit a pi**-taker extraordinaire.

Mr Salim said: “We agreed to take part for education really - so people can see how we actually do things like cooking meals, I’m sure you’ll have a good laugh watching it."

I don't think many people will think it's a laugh. More likely they will see it as a sickening abuse of the benefit system.

He is actually, but I can't see beyond his p**s taking myself! Evil or Very Mad

And I still think he is up to 13.....

Quite ! I hope he will only have a 'bit part' in tomorrow night's documentary. There are other large families featured and memories of his last TV appearance aren't forgotten, unfortunately.


He previously said about working "I just couldn't be arsed with sitting in traffic" and quipped about Going Forth To Multipy: "I can't stand condoms; "I used a condom once. It was awful. Never again "



One of the unaffable sides to Mr Salim has been his constant criticisms of this country and of the hands that feed and house him, often printed as letters in local media.


Ask an honest, local practicing Muslim, and you may be told of the ridicule attached to concealing food under bedding for that publicised hunger strike. You may even be told of his (thwarted) wish to re-stage his hunger strike publicity against Salman Rushdie, during RAMADAN ... a normal time of Muslim fasting practice. That is not bright. Plonker

Bring back Lizzie Bardsley say I. I love these colourful local characters.

If you have a welfare system coupled with a low wage economy that basically invites peoples to take the p*ss then why be surprised when they do just that?

Maybe the TV crew who filmed the Harpurhey series should come to Rochdale and do the same.

Now that would be a programme to watch!

They should follow the character known as 'Gas Man' round for the day or spend a week in 'Piss-Head Park`.

I've lost my sense of humour as far as this is concerned.

I have no problem with large families, my father was one of 13 (11 survived) and I have 4 children myself. The difference is my family has always worked to support ourselves and pay our way.

*cue violins*

Admittedly grandad had a few years out of work in the 1920s after returning to the promised land fit for heroes following the Great War. During the depression his means test benefit was £2 4s 8d to support himself, wife and the 7 children they had at that stage.

Grandad supplemented his benefit with growing veg on an allotment and paid into the community by running a boxing club and organising events for the unemployed. My father had a newspaper round as a child the proceeds of which was 3s 6d which he tipped up into the family coffers minus a ha'penny. Extras were purchased with the sale of what little furniture they had spare (which was not much) and grandad's medals from the Great War.

Grandad was desperate to find work and when he eventually found a job he kept it until the day he dropped dead.

I am not by any means suggesting that we go back to the bad old days but I do find it frustrating that this man benefits from the hard work of others and is not (as far as I am aware) prepared to put a penny back into the system. Added to that some muppet has decided to turn him into a "reality star" in the name of entertainment.

I fully support the benefits system and have never begrudged paying my taxes and dues. I do object however to contributing to Mr Salim's fun. He needs to keep his pants up and pull his finger out. It's no pleasure for the rest of us carrying him on our backs when he's perfectly able yet unwilling to support his family and himself.

Pulling his pants up and pulling his finger out?

A strange mixture of metaphors but not entirely inappropriate.

I have a strange fascination with Rochdale's seamy side. It must be the company I keep.

Mr Salim's frequent letters to the press should carry my irony warning.

Ironical indeed Hinch, he hasn't a good word to say about this country...talk about 'biting the hand that feeds you'!

Perhaps I should rephrase it to say, stop slacking and start working, Hinch? Sure you could think of a much choicer turn of phrase *chuckle*

No Charly he has to keep his finger clean to write letters to the local paper. Does not want to smudge the writing pad.

It would certainly have saved the good old British taxpayer a few bob over the years.

I wonder how much he and his adoring family have cost us over the past twenty-odd years? (Don't forget to add on his university education. )

Still, he's given us a few chuckles.

Doesnt he have more than one degree?
My daughters are still paying for theirs and the third daughter hopes to go Uni next year, oh for it to be free now eh?
At least they are making use of their education, his seems to be wasted (apart from his maths...bet he can add his finances up ok)

Well he has notched up far more in benefits than I ever did as a Band 5 Staff Nurse; even including my night pay.

That to me is the scandal that by CHOOSING not to work, you can get more than someone nudging £40K a year and all of it, unlike my salary, free of income tax.

Mohammed Salim seems to be doing well in his media career, he is now filming for a Channel 5 show called 'Seven Deadly Sins'.

He will appear on the show which focuses on the sin ‘Sloth’, after revealing earlier this year that the family survive on state benefits. Shocked
