He was born in Pakistan and came here as an 8 year-old in 1966.

And notice the difference in the two homes, one of them is clean and tidy to say there are 5 extra children plus the dad goes out to work!
I see Mo Salim has actually got 7 degrees!
I wonder if he would have taken 7 if he had to pay for them?
It mentioned benefits amount to £680 a week, how many people have that take home pay?

Not many working people could afford to have so many children.

Mohammed Salim's house looked to be getting very overcrowded, and his wife seemed to be suffering some stress, will they be re-housed in a larger place?

He owned two houses at one point, didn't he own a house his mother left him?

Even if the family owns the house, there must come a point where they are officially and legally overcrowded, and so would qualify for housing benefit to get a bigger place?

Overcrowded and chaotic it may have been but the kids were well-fed, well-dressed and, most of all, happy.

Just a pity that the rest of us are paying for it.

God knows how his van passed its MOT. I've never seen so much body-filler. I think that was the only thing holding it together.

Yes, the kids seemed to be doing all right for the time being, but if there are more on the way, and as they all get bigger all the time, the question of larger and more spacious housing must crop up. If they had a huge garden, they could grow vegetables.

As Mohammed commented several times, it's an expensive business keeping such a large family. He seemed happily oblivious that it is not his, but other people's money he is complaining about having to pay out.

He was in court 2011-2012 charged with benefit frauds and making false statements, and for failing to declare ownership of a nearby second home. He has drawn housing benefits in the past; what he does has been by his “ choice. ”


I think you've their family holiday break to Paris to look forward to watching yet. Smile

I hope they're flying 'cos that van doesn't look up to it.

Just imagine, if it broke down over there, they might not be able to get back. What a loss!

From what I recall, even his long suffering wife Noreen accused him of not trying hard enough to find a job, that spoke volumes to me.

What sort of degrees are they though? There are good genuine degrees and degrees that mean nothing.

And that was just for a Grade 2 teaching assistant.

Bet his pet subjects were human biology and maths.
