The Tom Lehrer moment

A few weeks ago, talking about BNP proposals for teenage mothers, I wrote:

given that it’s an insane plan based on a kneejerk reaction to create a non-solution to a perceived problem, there’s every chance it might already be being considered at some level of the Government.

God, I hate being right:

Mr Brown says he will create a network of supervised houses in which teenage girls who have children can be helped to bring them up.

One thought on “The Tom Lehrer moment”

  1. Now wasn’t that idea piloted in Ireland in the 1950s? I think that one of the religious groups ran the homes for pregnant girls – the Roman Catholics perhaps – so they’ll be able to run them here I’m thinking.
