There are certain areas in which the state should not be involved save only peripherally and the more it costs, perhaps the less they should be involved. In the case of anything Nick Clegg has his hands in doubly so as he wants to charge us for setting up a network of childminders for those who are disadvantaged in order to prepare them for school.
Taxpayers will have to fork out £1 billion for Nick Clegg’s ‘obsession’ to create a ‘nanny state’ with tens of thousands of new jobs for childcare workers.
The Deputy Prime Minister laid out plans to create an army of new nannies who would look after disadvantaged toddlers to ensure they were more ‘classroom ready’ by the time they started school.
The nannies would care for 140,000 of the most ‘disadvantaged’ two year olds every year to improve ‘social mobility’, the Liberal Democrat leader said.
From next year, two-year-olds from poor backgrounds in England will receive 15 hours of free childcare during term time.
It is expected around one in five two-year-olds would qualify for taxpayer-funded nanny care.
The nannies would be employed by nurseries rather than directly by the government but the taxpayer subsidy will come at a time when middle income parents are facing soaring childcare fees of their own.
In a consultation document on the proposals, the state is referred to act as ‘the corporate parent’ of youngsters.
God alone knows where he intends to get them from, certainly it’s not like he can simply pluck them out of thin air. The CRB checks alone will cost a fortune and aren’t exactly any indication that the people involved (presumably women) are any good at bringing along the kids involved or would even want to step into darkest chavland to do what any ordinary parent really should be doing for themselves.
Social engineering by this and the previous government has lead to an abdicating of responsibility in certain sections of society who now seem to want the state to step in and take over. A sort of rights with no responsibilities lifestyle, for those fortunate enough to qualify and we have politicians falling over themselves to do it! Worst of all they expect us to pay for it who don’t want it and don’t see the need.
I believe we’re nearing the end game with state interference, it can go either of two ways, either we vote them all out (or hang them, either will do) or we head into the long dark night of never ever being able to run our own lives the way we want too. Most of us wont even be able to escape.
More than half a million wealthy Britons are expected to move abroad in the next two years amid concerns about crumbling road and rail networks, crime and high taxes, a survey reveals today.
Some 19 per cent of people with savings and investments worth more than £250,000 are considering a new life overseas, which is up from 17 per cent six months ago and 14 per cent a year ago.
The figures suggest that at least 500,000 people with that level of personal wealth may leave the UK in the next two years.
This is the end result of multicultural social engineering, a land the indigenous no longer recognise as their own. A land where we no longer wish to live…
