Political Footballs

Whatever you think about our political leaders, today at Prime Ministers Question’s neither Brown or Cameron covered themselves in glory.

The Baby P trial has exposed not just the failures of the Social Services in the Haringey area of North London, failures which bizarrely are being investigated by the chair of the department under investigation. Surely the phrase conflict of interest came to the mind of whoever made or verified this decision. There are also questions to be asked about the education standards in Haringey. I am amazed that in the 21st century, there are people in this country who cannot read or write, this is the case for the parents of the child.

Also, isn’t about time that we had parenting classes for teenage/young mothers?
