Well, that answers that question. Gordon Brown is unquestionably certifiable. He’s so far out of his tree that he’s left the forest altogether. Anyone who thinks that, in making ‘the speech of his life™’ this is going to be the game changer is a danger to shipping.
And I do think it’s time to address a problem that for too long has gone unspoken, the number of children having children. For it cannot be right, for a girl of sixteen, to get pregnant, be given the keys to a council flat and be left on her own.
From now on all 16 and 17 year old parents who get support from the taxpayer will be placed in a network of supervised homes. These shared homes will offer not just a roof over their heads, but a new start in life where they learn responsibility and how to raise their children properly. That’s better for them, better for their babies and better for us all in the long run.
Hmm. Worried about flagging popularity? Why not try pledging to lock up teenagers and their babies in a large camp? How did Looney Tunes used to end? Th-th-th-th-that’s all folks!
