she says it all..


  1. From the article:

    The Chief Inspector of Schools, Sir Michael Wilshaw, has ranged widely in apportioning blame for the abuse or neglect of children in Britain.

    He said the problems exposed in child abuse scandals were being deepened by an apparent national obsession with ‘pussyfooting around’ and ‘making excuses’ for bad parents. At the root of wider social problems lay the alienation of many children from their natural father.

  2. Very good article and she goes further in her own opinion:

    Sir Michael is absolutely correct. He did, however, fail to identify the key culprit behind this inexorable process of social breakdown – the intellectual, legal and political class which caused it to take place.

    The article is obviously inspired by their current political solution – to allow married couples to pay less tax.

  3. Clearly I remember
    From the windows they were watching
    While we froze down below

    When the future’s architectured
    By a carnival of idiots on show
    You’d better lie low
