13-year-old dad sparks outrage

Alfie Patten, who was only 12 when the baby was conceived with his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman, 15, was pictured on the front of Friday’s tabloid Sun newspaper with his daughter, Maisie Roxanne, after her birth Monday. He told the newspaper that he thought “it would be good to have a baby.” “I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10. When my mum found out I thought I was going to get in trouble. We wanted to have the baby but were worried about how people would react. I didn’t know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it.”

Chantelle, meanwhile, said: “I’m tired after the birth. I was nervous after going into labour but otherwise I was quite excited.” Former Conservative party leader Iain Duncan Smith, who runs the Centre for Social Justice think tank, told the British Press Association the birth highlighted another case of “broken Britain” where “anything goes.” “It’s not being accusative; it’s about pointing out the complete collapse in some parts of society of any sense of what’s right and wrong.

Perhaps I sound provocative and cynic but is it the first time something like that happens or the last? Isn’t it that because of the newspaper, a UK very popular tabloid the whole issue became a big thing to drive a lot of people in UK to blame the labour party for losing morals?

Euro Parliament robber

Belgian police are hunting for a man who stole about 60,000 Euros (£54,000) from a bank in the European Parliament, after brandishing a pistol at staff.

It was not yet known if the pistol was real or fake, parliament spokesman Jaume Duch Guillot said. The man demanded money at an ING bank branch on Thursday after evading checks by the parliament’s security personnel. The robbery lasted only a few minutes.
After the euro-farmers and the euro-bureaucrats, now we have the euro-thieves!!!

I know that I can be crucified for this article. But I don’t really care. It is my opinion, I have been thinking like that (and about that) for a long time.

As I said, I very rarely hear my mobile and it was pure luck that I heard the sound and I felt the vibration this time, modern mobiles, along with the noise, vibrate as well, which reminded me that I had turned the sounds on…
