UK - You pay for Muslim polygamy

"And not a lot of people know that."

"Yet, even though polygamy is illegal here, the Government still pays extra benefits to men with more than one wife, as long as the marriage was conducted in a country where polygamy is allowed. When John Hutton was Work and Pensions Secretary, he demanded a review: the conclusion, last December, was that it should remain."


That would be you and me paying those extra benefits.
