The Mess that is Great Britain

August 16, 2011

Sometimes I have trouble believing what I’m reading is saying what I think it does. So’s the case of this sordid tale about a pregnant fifteen-year-old. Okay, these things happen, but they don’t need to be incented by the State. Here’s the part I’m having a hard time believing:

Quoted from her mother:

“Our three-bedroom place was already overcrowded with her sisters Coco and Ritzy, her brother Tarot, Soya’s boyfriend Jake and one of her sister’s babies. Once the new baby comes the council will have to find us a place with four or five bedrooms.”

I don’t know what “the council” refers to, but I’m guessing this is a pretty clear indication of how people respond to incentives.

In a related note, Thomas Sowell recently wrote how Americans are having less difficulty speaking the truth these days.
