Child poverty forever.

How many of the 5.5m children "living in, or on the brink of poverty" have parents who can afford to drink and smoke!?!

Who is responsible for "lifting" Karen Matthews' family out of poverty when she has had seven children by five different fathers?

Government targets for reducing child poverty should focus on discouraging the feckless and work shy from having more and more children rather than paying them more and more.

Now look here just a minute. Just you stop right there with that sort of, um, line of, um, false reasoning you, um, what's a good tag to hang on someone? Ha! You poorist you!

Yeah. That'll learn 'em to do down the welfare state. These people provide a valuable income for social workers that otherwise couldn't function in a competitive society so just you back off.
