Tories are wrong!

After news of Jeremy Hunt's pronouncement that the workshy should stop having children if they cannot afford them one is minded of the words of Jonathan Swift when he said:

I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled…

Food for thought indeed ;-)

How long will it be before he's slapped down by his superiors and the children of the poor are sent to schools where they are taught valuable skills a la Children of Earth and are never to be seen again? Except, perhaps, as a tasty pie…
