The Tories, you see, believe that anyone poor and unemployed should not be having children. As the Daily Mail reports today, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has called on the jobless to take responsibility for their families. It was not the duty of the state, said Mr Hunt, to fund an increasing number of offspring with benefits. His provocative comments came days after Chancellor George Osborne announced that no family should receive more than £500 a week in benefits.
So under this new Conservative regime in Britain the poor can either suffer from starvation or their parents can prevent having them by using birth control or abortion.
I'm sure Tony would not approve.
