Feed My Own Kids..? Why Would I Want To Do That..?

One of the other girls says: “When we don’t have food at home, my mum sends us all to Kids Company and tells us to make sure we get seconds.”

I bet she takes the child benefit that’s supposed to feed and clothe you though, eh?

And if you dare to take issue with this, you’re clearly a herd-hearted rightwing bitch who wants children to starve!

 

Yes, the ‘basic right of food’ you never knew anybody had…

I ask him, slightly desperately, if there is any sunlight in this story. “Yes, of course. When you feed a child, when you provide a family-like environment, they thrive. They turn in to fine young people. And it doesn’t cost much.”

Well, apart from the slow erosion of the idea that children are the responsibility of their parents,,,

The children and young people who come to Kids Company are generally 15 times more likely than the average to have experienced severe or extreme levels of emotional neglect. They are 13 times more likely to have experienced severe or extreme levels of sexual abuse. Half of them report having seen someone shot or stabbed in their community within the past year.

And aren’t these all crimes the supposedly-benevolent state is suposed to resolve?

Spanish-born Maria Nieto came here as a nurse four years ago. “I see a lot of children with dry skin which is the first sign of malnutrition,” she says. “Obviously some are extremely thin but there are others who are overweight. Which is a sign they are eating badly.” Too many, she says, will be sent to the fried chicken shop to load up with nutrient-low chicken and chips as a replacement for a proper meal. I ask her if she ever finds herself judging the parents. She shakes her head.

Of course she doesn’t. Would a farmer judge her sheep, for being so dim they require her shepherding? It is. after all, making her a nice living…

    Moar dad wor a farmer, and his dad before ‘im.

    When the animalz ad been a’birthin, they’d get the runts, the two-‘eaded, the wrong ‘uns, chuck ’em in river.

    Guvmint came along, said I gotta look after these ‘uns, gave me some good money.

    So nows I jus’ get the mutants to breed, like. Money fer nuthin.

    The middle classes are sponsoring the destruction of the society into which their children will grow. This dysgenic experiment will mean that the elite – which is not a pejorative term! – will have no voice in a democracy where they are outnumbered by the girocrats. One realises how close we are to the tipping point when more than 30% of voters will endorse a gibbering Marxist worm, most of whom will pay greater care to the lottery numbers that they choose.

    Labour is the party for poor people. It is easy to make, and keep people poor. The Conservatives used to be for people who’d made it, or wanted to make it. I am sure what they stand for any more. According to the Spectator last week, they were great fans of Kids Company.

      If Kids company exists and survives on tax payers money, what is the department for children, schools and families for?

      The guardian readers, typically, moronic. They can’t think properly to debate the cause and encourage the decimation of society through their own arrogance.

      What worries me is that such people think how they do. Where is their reasoning? Their judgement?

      Of course they are – the editor of the Speccie probably wants a ‘job’ on the board!

    And how, exactly, is Kids Company funded? Are we, the tax payer providing for the wasters in society while obviating their responsibility?

    There is much these people can do without. They are simply greedy. These people are human effluent. That we are forced to support them while we do without is offensive.

      Their funding (as described on their easy-to-find website) is not as you assume. I quote: “The majority of our annual £24.3m funding comes from the generosity of the public and corporate donations, as well as from Trusts & Foundations. We also receive a restricted government grant.”
      It’s also hardly the fault of the children that they’re hungry, so actually it’s your remarks that are offensive.

        No, it’s not the children’s fault. But if we sit back while the idea that you can have children and not feed them percolates through the underclass we’ll just have more of them, and isn’t that equally offensive?

          Yes of course it is – I was taking issue with Errol’s lazy, throwaway remarks. There’s plenty to criticise without smearing the innocent.
