It’s come to this

By the time his latest offspring are born Macdonald will have fathered 10 children by 10 different mothers in just 10 years.

And since all the mothers and children are largely dependant on benefits it is likely to cost the taxpayer £1.5 million by the time they are all 16.

Yet unemployed Macdonald, who lives on £44 a week income support and wakes up with a can of lager each morning, contributes just £5-a-week to their upkeep.

Two former girlfriends claim he has also fathered a further four children.
