Howard Flight and Lord Young

So Howard Flight is now in trouble for saying that those on benefits are encouraged to breed whilst the middle classes find it very expensive. Something that is blatantly obvious but falls into the category of 'things you cannot say'.

Last week Lord Young said that 'most Britons had never had it so good'. For those with secure jobs and mortgages linked to the base rate this is also obviously true. The only question is whether they are in the majority. Nobody dared look up the statistics and he ended up having to resign.

David Cameron shamefully offered no support to either man and instead wants to spend a few million quid on a survey to find out whether we are happy or not. I'd certainly be a lot happier if he stopped wasting my taxes on daft things.

For reasons of foolishness, I originally wrote Lord 'King' rather than 'Young'. Thanks to Kynon for pointing this out.

Sorry Frank, but that was Lord Young, not Lord King who said that...

I feel happier that pro single Mums are now only going be able to live in houses twice as expensive as mine as opposed to 5 times more.
I'd feel happier if we bought the worthless houses in Ireland for £5 each and put pro single mums there!

Anyway, he is right, is he not? Whist the middle classes have to fork out for their childrens' upbringing, feed them clothe them, often pay for education, theu scounging classes get it all given to them, rent paid, no council tax, free school meals, this-that-the-other-alowance, children get free music lessons and go on school trips fro free - no wonder they breed like mad, doesn't cost them like it does the detested middle clases. So what we will see (and I gather it's already here) is that we will get a highter proportion of children from sub-intelligent parents, since we all know that intelligence is , at least partly, inherited, this will dumb down the population considerably . Stupid people breed more than intelligent people, so we'll end up a country with a majority of unintelligent people. Great.

I think Keynes got it right when he said: "the working class are far too drunken and ignorant to be trusted in keeping its own numbers down.” However, let's re-phrase that to the "underclass" instead of working class, because they. at least, have a work ethic and some pride and respect for themselves.

For those who don't know, Keynes was a member of the Fabian society a highly influencial left wing/socialist movement in the 1930s who advocated the use of Eugenics (even before Hitler did, indeed it was their movement and their theories which highly influenced Hitler).

I actually think there is a good case for introducing Eugenics back into society, with specific regard to the feckless, never worked a day in my life, entitlement cultured fuckwits that are the underclass. If they aren't prepared to work and contribute to the society in which they live, sterilise them and/or have them shot.

Howard Flight was spot on with his comments. Shame on Cameron for slapping him down.

Why would anyone expect Tory Blair and Blue Labour to do anything different?

I have met and interviewed a woman from the Swamp Estate in Ruraltown who informed me, on tape and without any shame, that she encouraged her 14 year old daughter to become pregnant so they could, as a family, get more benefit money and a larger council house. The interview was for child neglect. This is one interview, in one town in one county in England. Imagine the national scale of it. He was right.
