Our kids - The problem’s not poverty, it’s parenting. Do you agree?
Over at The Standard (not a "sewer blog") they have drawn attention to what the Child Poverty Action Group is saying about the programme:
"....I would urge you to watch the show and vote if you can – it would be good to get some strong voter numbers in support of the “poverty” side because blaming the situation on parents alone simply lets the government off the hook."
So, whoever 'our kids' are, and whatever 'the problem' is, they say it's the government's fault.
I suppose I could agree, in that the government has done too much, over too many decades, to turn parents into immature, unimaginative, emotionally ill-equipped individuals hooked on hand-outs, but I don't think that's what CPAG are implying.
