Is it it safe to come out now mom? Has the world begun to understand that social workers don't go around killing children? Probably not. But, now that the great and rational British public is in the mood for extreme vigilance, I have the answer.
Anybody who has demonstrated a predisposition for violence, should not be allowed to keep their children; anybody who has demonstrated an inability to provide appropriate care for their children, should be denied them: so, anyone who has ever smacked a child, please step aside while we take them to a place of safety; anyone who feeds their children a diet of processed shit, please step aside, so that we can care for them properly; anyone who has been drunk in front of a child, step aside, old son, you are not a fit parent; anyone who smokes in front of their children, please stand in the corner with a dunces hat on your head while we take the little darlings away; anyone who doesn't encourage their children to thrive and reach their fullest potential............ who dresses them head to toe in leisure wear, who is ambivalent about school performance, who doesn't help with the homework, will you kindly just step out of the fucking way while we arrange for your children to have a better life. That should do the trick.

How we all hate the nanny state - until nanny takes a day off. Then we want nannies galore. We want nannies with whips, nannies with locks, keys and public inquiries. Labour, Liberal or Tory nannies are suddenly the order of the day.
Grab an earful of the new Ryan Adams.
