According to our lovely PM Boris Johnson

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.i...036.html%3famp

Quote from the article:

“In a column written for The Spectator, the Tory leader said it was “outrageous that married couples should pay for ‘the single mothers’ desire to procreate independently of men. And he suggested it was “feeble” for a man to be unable or unwilling to “take control of his woman”, arguing Britain needed to “restore women’s desire to be married”.
Lock him up.

Yes they are,having a single parent is very bad for children
There is a difference but it appears to be slight:

In politics accurancy counts for nothing as Trump has shown to great effect. Corbyn is promising to solve everything but will not get in because he is unconvincing. Boris could promise to make us all millionaires and some people would believe him.
Still counts for a little here.

He can easily point to studies which show that kids of single parent households end up worse off, so doesn't need to justify the point any further.

Won't stop the frothing at the mouth that some will have regardless, and won't alter the fact he's still a [email protected] But it's enough for him to move on to the next point.

It was a normal historical view to be fair. Attlee's view of unmarried mothers was that they were feckless and in modern parlance essentially sluts. They were actually essentially excluded from the benefits system.
Of course. Because if you are going to blame anyone for the ills of society you are going to choose the weak and the powerless... like single mums and immigrants.

The thing that'll really piss you off though is that the bold bit is right.

Kids from single parent households do tend to, on average, be more likely to become that type of kid.

Do all? Of course not.
But is it a politically accurate statement? Accurate enough that numbers will back him up.
True, but seemingly only marginally

A 5% difference doesn’t warrant this amount of prejudice when single mothers have done a perfectly good job in the past: eg the war years
Anecdotally Im from a single parent household and I got some of the best GCSE results in my school year. It’s about relationships and money of the parents, not whether there’s one parent or two

Because normal people appreciate that just because you said something once 25 years ago that it didn't necessarily mean you still believe that same thing years later?

25 years ago I said that all I ever wanted to do was eat jelly and become a fireman. Guess what? I eat other foods now and I'm not in the fire service...
i love how people have this attitude towards Boris Johnson (despite saying bigoted things recently/frequently) but attack Corbyn for things he said/did decades ago

And yet, the same people who say "oh, don't have a go at Corbyn for the things he did ages ago" are digging things up on other politicians...

You can't have it both ways.

I personally don't care either way; I think they're both idiots. But they're both guilty of hypocrisy.

just cos some dig up on Johnson doesn’t mean the majority do. there’s enough ammunition from the last decade on him. it’s not the same when almost the entirety of the press do that to Corbyn.

Of course it's the same :rolleyes:

Both sides are just as bad as each other, don't kid yourself.

What for?
For such vicious attacks on women esp single mothers who are working hard to make ends meet. He made such crass statements about a topic he probably did not understand.

Being crass is hardly a reason to 'lock someone up'.

That is fair. I hope women can protest during the election by voting for Labour.

For Johnson, it is a good reason.

That's actually a fair view when put like that although I would add that the states enforcement of progressive liberalism combined with the legal culture has also substantially weakened discipline and resulted in 'violent youths'.
Relative to what? The behaviour of children in the past? I would argue today’s youth are better behaved; numerous measures have shown today’s youth are having less sex and doing less illegal drugs

A 5% difference between children of single mothers and children of two parents hardly warrants the amount of vitriol single mothers receive either; when they did a good enough job during the war years
