The UK has amongst the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in the world, and certainly in Europe.
I will say from the onset, that a fair percentage, are pure accidents, a percentage are indeed from a lack of education, a percentage would naturally happen anyway, and anywhere in the world.
Also a fair percentage of parents, probably the majority do a great job at raising their children, and take great pride in teaching them moral values.
That is why despite this shocking statistic, the UK is one of the safest most democratic, and greatest places to live on the planet. Boasting a great welfare system, and a modern FREE public health provision, which is despite our complaining, the envy of the world.
However amongst this greatness, there has developed a chunk of society, an underclass that is spiralling out of control. When I say underclass, it has no reference to the old fashioned class system, of working, middle and upper. That is now defunct. 98% of us are now middle class, the hard working people of the past, who were called working class, have now been absorbed into the middle classes.
Instead we have a detached upper classes making the laws and in the judiciary, a further minority from the 60', with a view of the real world through rose coloured glasses where everything is wonderful, and everyone has a good side, and then the remainder are the minority the moral underclass, which are the Chavs, living lawlessly, and only to benefit themselves, treating their children like tools, to gain more for doing nothing.
Unfortunately they are breeding fast, and they are the remaining percentage in our equation which has helped push the UK to the forefront of teenage pregnancy figures.
Yet in my opinion the aforementioned law makers are continually barking up the wrong tree, and speaking of extra education for all, meanwhile the doo-gooders and liberals are running around like headless chickens thinking and insisting upon new ways of how we can help and support them. A bit like firefighters trying to extinguish flames with petrol.
"We must house them, we must pay them, benefits. It is their rights", they shout. Regardless of circumstances. In fact a lucrative reward scheme is in place for young people who have not been careful, quite wilfully. Laws which are designed to aid the needy, have become the sole domain for the greedy.
Far from a lack of education, the youngsters of today are far more educated and savvy on sex, and life in general. Probably more-so than most of the politicians and do-gooders we have in charge, making the laws.
Most of whom are living in their detached homes down tree lined avenues, completely unaware of the hood wearing, Staffy owning, tracksuit wearing louts roaming the streets up and down the country. Education is not part of, and has never been the solution to any such of the problems, like these.
Are we to believe that Jill got pregnant because she didn't know about safe sex. Yeah right!
Jill got pregnant because she didn't care either way, and like a fair chunk of teenagers, Jill was often allowed to stay out to all hours, Jill may have got caught drinking or taking drugs, but her parents attitude was just to shrug their shoulders and say its part of growing up. Jill got caught shoplifting, but the Police took no action, because they were busy producing statistics showing the fall in crime.
Jill doesn't have a family to speak off, nor any role models, Jill is a ferral child roaming the streets because her family don't care. Jill could easily have been named Chardonnay. The wine drank down the park, on the night of conception, by her then teenage mother.
Jack didn't use a condom because he didn't know about the risks, or wasn't educated enough to make a right decision. Do you think? Yeah right!
Jack like most other teenagers didn't use a condom because he doesn't have to care about consequences, there are no consequence to any actions anymore, not for todays ferral teenagers. It almost a lawless state for the average teenager.
Teenage boys can run around into the early hours of the morning, can drink alochol to excess, bring girlfriends to their homes and sleep with them in the same house as their parents. Ahh its ok, he will only do it somewhere else they argue. He will only drink outside. Oh it's how it is these days.
The sad fact of the matter is, there is undoubtedly a deep rooted moral decline in the UK amongst a section of society, there are scores of parents who don't care what their children are doing and have lost control of a sense of purpose. Many children and in fact teenagers have almost become the ultimate accessory to some, they have them, use them to gain access to the welfare system, then push them away in their teens, to fend for themselves.
To fix this problem, in my opinion. You have to address the cause, and the cause is not the teenagers, but the parents.
There should be more tax breaks for families who are earning money, and taking part in family friendly activities. Married couples should get tax relief, as should people paying Mortgages.
Controversial, but the emphasis should shift towards helping the majority instead of assisting and encouraging, the minority to breed.
Summary: Lawless Britain, a fact for many teenagers!
