Guthrum eloquently pretty much sums up what I feel about the news 'outing' of the adults directly responsible for Baby Peter's murder. Yes, and each and every one of us is culpable for accepting the degenerate and immoral system of Welfare Statism that was largely responsible for the suffering and death of that poor child.
When Beveridge declared war on the evils of Want, Disease, Ignorance, Squalor and Idleness he was making a moral judgement on the wrongs of the underclass lifestyle; he didn't urge us to accept in an inclusive and non-judgemental way the lifestyle choices of whores, deviants, bullies, thieves and the brutish and chaotic lives of those at the bottom of society. Mandelson can hold his fragrant posy to his noble nose as he returns to his Regent's Park mansion to waft away the stench of failure, corruption and moral decay that defines this Labour administration, but in filthy welfare slums across the nation thousands remain locked in a grinding, hopeless welfare slavery of Labour's making.
Labour has lost all sense of morality; Brown has been sitting on his moral compass so long the Magnetite has penetrated his soul. The party that Wilson once described as 'a moral crusade or nothing' has lost the courage to speak morality to its client dependency, and it has done so for naked votes and political power. Labour has betrayed Beveridge.
It's now time for other parties to take up Beveridge's moral crusade - parties unafraid to speak right and truth, parties unafraid to impose standards of morality and behaviour on the degenerate, the wicked and the spongers, parties willing to withdraw moral and financial support from the worst of the underclass, and offer them instead a ladder and the means and encouragement by their own diligence and efforts to climb it.
