Are you not a little bit embarrassed to be British over the disgraceful saga surrounding the 13 year old who is supposed to be the father of a new born? My money is on one of the other two youngsters who have come forwards actually being a Dad at 14 or 16. How has this story hit the press? If the family has contacted a newspaper then I'd be interested to know, as without doubt money has probably changed hands. Was the lure of being a celebrity Chav just too much?
WTF is going on in this country? We have the worst teenage pregnancy rates in Europe and the tax payer is going to be paying for this mess for decades. No doubt Under Age mother Chantelle will soon be settled in to her new council pad paid for by you and me - Her life will be sorted or so she thinks. Would Chantelle be so enthusiastic to be a mother if the state wasn't so willing to foot the bill?
I'm sure that a few changes to housing policy whereby newly pregnant teenage mothers were not entitled to social housing might solve the problem. I'm sure that the mostly single parent grandmothers to be, instead of being onto The Sun newspaper would be marching their daughters down to certain clinics instead.
Getting pregnant is the easy way onto the council housing list. A young person even working is never going to get into social housing unless they've got issues. With open migration into this country people on the estates are seeing foreign families being housed and therefore see no problem with their kids getting pregnant to beat the system. I feel sorry for the hard working with no kids who have no chance of getting their own place. I can assure you that living next door to Chantelle would involve constant nuisance from youths who would use it as a social base. I've seen it too often.
I'd much rather the likes of Chantelle took the sensible option and the tax payer paid her to have a week in Magaluf to get over it. It would be cheaper in the long run. Of course only two holidays allowed before age of 21. They might even meet a nice waiter and end up staying there.
