I’m horrified that anyone could sit down and in all seriousness write this article, then submit it to be read by hundred of thousands of people. I would be mortified. But then again, it IS Melanie Phillips we are talking about. Countless times I have tuned into Question Time to be astounded by yet another appearance by Melanie Phillips who, time and time again, comes out with the most hair-brained, unfounded statements which make me want to choke on my late night toast and tea.
The thrust of the article is that Melanie believes that it should be MEN who receive family benefits because this would promote more couples to raise their children together because, and this is the CRACKER, it is WOMEN’s attitude to child-raising as some sort of lucrative money-making endeavour and their man-hating ways that is causing all the problems. She also asserts that if men could still TRUST that the children were their own then they would DEFINATELY stick around. But, since women are essentially sluts out to get money from any direction for doing nothing more than lying on their back and squirting out baby after baby*, then this has caused the breakdown of society.
Phillips says that women and girls have babies on purpose in order to get child benefit (£18.50 a week, seriously?) and that they know exactly what they are getting themselves into – so the governments big budget drive to EDUCATE girls is wasted money because the conniving little madams are already rubbing their hands together for their £20 a week and picking out their furniture for their run-down 1960′s (at best) council flat. After all, what girl needs educating when there are important issues like what colour will mask the black mould in their new flat, the gateway to independent living.
The notion that young girls and women and getting pregnant and putting themselves through labour, and of course motherhood (a RIGHT bundle of laughs) in order to enjoy the walk in the park that is being jobless, penniless and despised by large segments of the population (funnily enough all readers of Melanie Twatface) is just ludicrous.
And the best part of all, that women are too sneaky and money-grabbing to be in charge of money because as soon as they get that benefit sorted they through perfectly good men out on the streets in order to enjoy a life of hard unappreciated poverty-stricken living and that in order to stop this army of man-women ruining the good fabric of WHATEVER world Melanie Phillips lives in, we should give the money to the men. Of course, this wouldn’t in any way wind back all the progress women have made in the last 100 years to be treated as PEOPLE independent of MALES and in effect make them reliant on men for their bread and water while they fight to bring up children (we know what happens in the workplace as soon as you have a child).
Nobody FORCES women and girls to have children, that is true, but there are worse things to be in the country than a single mum. How about all the money spent on protecting convicted paedophiles identity when they are released, how about all the tax evaded by high earning ‘Non-Doms’ in this country….how about all the money in the economy given to fruit loops like Melanie Phillips to spread vile, ignorant rubbish? Surely all money this could also be better spent. Failing that, let’s just support young mothers shall we?
