I am so pissed off. Its fucking mad out there. A decent bloke dies from bullet wounds because he asked some thugs to stop smoking. A fostered baby drowns and everyone thinks this is appalling (which it is) but is it surprising...why would foster parents care more than birth parents? My personal experience of foster care involved a close friend who was adopted, physically and emotionally abused, ran away aged 11, put in foster care, sexually abused, ran away, put in foster care, sexually abused, ran away, put in a locked geriatric ward for 9 months and stuffed with largactyl (aged 15) released to foster care where foster father hit on her on the first night. I am sure there are great foster parents out there, but you cant expect them to love your kids more than you do.
Then there is giving "rights" to cohabiting couples. If I wanted "rights" I'd marry the sweetheart. I just want Boyfriend. I don't want the state deciding who gets the Juicer (it would be him) if he ever went insane and nasty and I had to ask him to leave (not going to happen). I did'nt marry Baby-father for the same reason. Who does it benefit? Lawyers, that is who. This proposal makes me seeth. I want the right to be different to married people!
Then there is David Blunkett. What the fuck is the BBC asking him on to comment on anything, let alone the total cock up on Indeterminate Tarrifs. This man is a discredited leach, a vain peacock, a fool. Needless to say, in Blunkett's considered opinion, it is the Judiciary that are at fault, not ill-considered legislation.
Then Social Services put two kids in the care of a woman who believed they were evil and not hers, and they die horrible deaths. This in spite of pleas from their father not to let mum have unsupervised access. I think he said something like "I obeyed the law, and the State frogmarched my children to their death".
Its a bloody insane world out there. Jesus it boils my piss.
