‘I am pro-commitment,’ [Ed Miliband] said
, ‘but I think that unlike David Cameron, I am not going to say that those families that aren’t married are automatically less stable than those families that are.’
I don't think I've ever come across a less controversial opinion. Yet:
With views like this Miliband is out of touch and unfit to lead a major political party.

Strange how the unmarried ones say everyone should be unmarried because they're jealous of the commitment of the married ones. Just because you can't find someone that's willing to be with you for the rest of your lives doesn't mean the rest of us can't.

Ed and his partner have been together for several years and have two children together. Unwillingly, it appears.
Bringing up young in the 70's we had what Mr. Cameron is so keen to have today. Good community, strong policing, courts and jail sentences. No weakness on crime,just fear of local bobby, and neighbours. Armies of MARRIED women at home before children went to school. Teaching them social skills, behaviour, and reading before. Women with part time work in school hours, still able to monitor the behaviour of the young after school, who would get short shrift again at home for upsetting any one. An era before equality was the buzz word, and women had respect for playing such an important role. Before masses of NURSERIES, years before the bloated welfare system. Originally to help women left on their own. That spawned instead the new family unit of deliberate single mothers. With free housing, all the add ons, and young without male role models and no social skills starting school. Then you have the gall to UNFAIRLY target those/us women in their 50's in the pension reform!!

Good community = no blacks.
Strong policing = West Midlands Serious Crime Squad.
Fear of local bobby = stop and search.
I particularly love the last line. Scrap other people's benefits; increase mine!
