It’s a sign of the times

Many people have been criticising our local MPs for abstaining to vote on the Welfare Bill and making statements about not punishing children.

However, I would suggest that it is the potential parents that are the ones these people should be targeting.

If you can’t afford to pay for your children, don’t have them – or more specifically, don’t expect other people to pay for them.

It is a sign of the times, I’m afraid that people expect others to do everything for them and refuse to take responsibility for their own actions.
