‘Dear Deidre’ to save our children – BALLS!

December 14, 2008

Unicef, the UN children’s charity, reported last year that British youngsters were the unhappiest in the Western world. This may have something to do with the fact that a third of UK kids live in poverty. It may have something to do with living in a fucked-up society where the government and media seem keen to present working class children as outlaws. It may have to do with the fact that parents are having to work long hours away from their kids just to make ends meet. It may be the fact that our kids are growing up in an ever more fascistic society. Or it may have to do with the ridiculous league table meritocracy that we have put in the place of real education. The government however think it’s because our kids don’t have their own fucking agony aunts.

We kid you not; the government has paid for a convention of agony aunts, including The Sun’s Deidre Sanders (Dear Deidre), to work on providing advice for parents.

Children’s secretary, Ed Balls, said…

“We are funding the summit, the idea is to produce a guide for parents which will help them with their relationship difficulties which would provide a more stable environment for their children while they are at school.”

Balls, Ed! Our kids (and adults for that matter) will be a lot fucking happier when we have equality and social justice for all; class war will make us very happy indeed!
