I’ve just turned the radio off. It’s been ‘verbally kick single parents hour’ on the radio phone-in so that contingent of angry, bitter & jealous shouty types that these days you find on many phone-ins and newspaper on-line comment forums gets yet another chance to put the world to rights.
In this case it would seemingly consist of making single parents work all the hours Richard Dawkins sends rather than take any state aid. We can of course have the phone-in about irresponsible full-time working parents not having time for their children on another day.
I worry that shouty types will inherit the Earth. Or at least England anyway.
