£190 Bribe to be Lectured

£190 to help pregnant women eat healthily | Money | The Observer
Pregnant women will, from tomorrow, be entitled to a £190 "health in pregnancy" grant from the government irrespective of their household income.
The money can be claimed from the 25th week of pregnancy, but only after receiving health advice from a midwife or other professional....
The aim of the grant is to ensure that all pregnant women have funds available to help them eat well in the run-up to giving birth, reducing infant mortality rates. Women can, however, spend the money on whatever they want.
"The grant answers an important, and until now unmet, need for families expecting a child," said Kate Green, chief executive of the Child Poverty Action Group.

How callous of me not to notice the babies dying of malnutrition on the streets of Britain, great heaps of them. Thank goodness for the kindly guiding hand of the State will now save them all.
(I note in the print edition of The Times some quack complaining it doesn't go far enough and that girls even thinking about getting up the duff ought to be given £250 if they ask for it....)

Whatever Fabians Want Fabians get!
They advised Brown not to go to the country, he didn't.
They advised him to give £190 to pregnant women, he did!
Brown and his Fabian parliament, must like me check the Fabian society first to watch for the next policy.
Perhaps Sundar Katwala is really the PM.
Be Education Health Policing etc, all policies stem from what is laughingly called a THINK TANK!

A Fabian Fascist think tank.

When advised of this last week I asked the midwife that perhaps this should be means tested...I recieved a rather incredulous look in reply.

What about a free grant for Men's issues? Such as, testicular cancer. What about a free grant for English cancer sufferers?
I swear I am going to live to 120 years old if it means I am going to see the demise of the p.c., commie control freak culture.
Yeah, what about telling them to abstain from sexual activity UNTIL they're actually marure enough to take on bringing up another Human being? Oh yeah of course, no coward politician, or any other yellow belly, is going to come out and say that. What a joke.
Like I stated, what about MEN'S HEALTH ISSUES? What about prostate cancer grants?

Once upon a time in California, their was a group of Aircraft Jig and Fixture job shoppers (temporary contract labor)whose agency was not paying them. They sent two representatives to discuss the matter with the owner of the agency. They met him in the parking lot turned him upside down, shook him, and took his wallet, pocket change, watch, car keys, jacket, tie, and shoes. Like magic everybody got good paychecks the next day.
I propose that the next time some twit who never gives any of his own money for charity, proposes that the government(tax payer) give it up for some off the wall cause, that they be met in the parking lot to have their charitable donation received.
