(M+D Archive) Children In Government
Play • 38 min
So a man who isn't married has had a child. It's not news, except Boris has managed to make it news, because he's a man who has a history of denigrating single mothers, and who has refused to confirm the number of children he already has. A man who had the police called to his address over a serious concern about domestic violence, and who still uses the word "illegitimate" to describe children born out of wedlock. Which he currently is.

There are more important things to be concentrating on, of course, but the UK government, right now, doesn't seem to think anything at all is important enough to merit its time or attention. Its delayed response to Covid-19, its refusal to engage with flooding victims, and even its own drugs policy all speak of a government that simply doesn't care about anything at all, and is quite happy to be seen not to care.
