Like there’s no tomorrow

I work for the underclass. I also work for a bunch of other people who are in the financial mire – temporarily or permanently – and from which I suspect no amount of health insurance and voluntary pension saving could ever have diverted them; pace my purist libertarian former comrades. Basically, a major part of my job is to help the unemployed or over-parented to understand and sometimes to do…

November 8, 2013 4 Comments

In rural Reserve, New Mexico, children wait for school buses inside boxy, wood-and-mesh structures that look like chicken coops. The “kid cages” are meant as protection from wolves. But are they even necessary? Well, maybe the parents think they are. And, since it’s their kid, isn’t it up to them? The issue is part of a long-simmering political debate, which recently came to a boil in the Southwest when the…

Public: ‘Make the authorities take all the responsibility – for the children!!’ At times, the review concluded, Daniel appeared to have been “invisible” against the backdrop of his mother’s controlling behaviour. Professionals failed to act on “what they saw in front of them” but accepted parental versions of events. The review team also accused Daniel’s school of having a “dysfunctional” approach to children’s safeguarding issues, highlighting that teachers had noticed…

When ‘Inclusion’ Means ‘Takeover’…

Parents of pupils at Rose Hill Primary School, in The Oval, were angered by a letter they received from headmistress Sue Mortimer. It informed them the halal meat, which involves slaughtering animals in a special way for consumption by Muslims, had been used in all school meals as part of the school’s inclusion policy. That’s…a rather strange idea of ‘inclusion’ isn’t it? More like… homogeneity. The letter said the reason…

Well, This Idea Sounds Nuts!

Campaigners are calling for the topic to be included in the national curriculum… Oh, what now? Well, would you believe, mental health? … and for schools to provide counselling and support to any young person that needs it. Around one in five children has symptoms of depression, such as continually feeling low or sad, helpless or anxious, according to a survey for MindFull, a new mental health charity. Isn’t that…

The brainchild of yet another fakecharity: The campaign has been launched by the Child Bereavement UK charity. And how are they…

Have they started ramming it down the throats of the unwilling? Today her mother, Debbie Nieman, 50, said she was “disgusted” by the availability of drugs and the prevalence of drug pushers on the island after she tracked the last movements of her daughter.…

Today one parent, who did not want to be named, said: “I am disgusted. I can’t believe she was allowed to live with a man who would do something like that and then come in to work with children. I don’t know if he has been into the nursery, but it is terrifying. It’s terrifying that this is a free country, one can have a relationship with whoever one wishes?…

It’s come to this, has it? Good grief… Parent Michelle Hubbard…

…especially if it’s for the chiiilldreeeeennnn! As the government prepares to introduce the new system, do you feel it is a positive step towards rooting out child abuse, or are you more concerned that the database will breach your and your children’s privacy? Bit of a loaded question, as the answers fall mainly into the ‘nothing to hide, nothing to fear!’ camps, gleefully monstering any dissenters as being incipient child…

Good Grief! I Must Be Turning Into A Lefty!

I mean, first I agreed with Mary Dejevsky. Now I’m agreeing with Peter Wilby… The late Richard Webster, a writer who dedicated many years to campaigning for “abusers” he believed were wrongly convicted, saw analogies with medieval witch hunts. Genuine witches existed, practising magic and calling on supernatural forces, but they were mostly eccentric individuals, not members of an international conspiracy threatening church and state. Since even real witches were…

…but she’s spot on here: Last week was half term; streets teemed with children, offices were parent-free zones, and the airwaves throbbed with indignation about Jimmy Savile, Welsh children’s homes and the stratagems deployed by high earners to keep their child benefit… It is at such times that I want to grab the ear-muffs, shout to everyone to shut up, and take one of these child-free flights that travel companies…

How many drugs did they find? Errr… The operation was carried out at Ivybridge Community College…

Their names are Claire, Billy, Amira, Sydnee, Trey. Regular east London kids, some of the many who came along to the Poplar Boys and Girls Youth Club in Tower Hamlets during two days in August to have their pictures taken, and to say what they thought child poverty in the UK was and how they felt about it. Yes, it’s the good old ‘Guardian’ carrying water for the fakecharities yet…
