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.

    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.
