There’s nothing like sitting down in the morning with a cuppa joe and the newspaper, leisurely making your way through the news of the day, then finally reaching today’s mad screed about forced sterilisation.
here’s the daily telegraph arguing for state-sanctioned sterilisation programs.

Yet our welfare industry turbocharges the underclass. It incentivises hopeless drug addicts to keep having children they can’t take care of, because it provides them with more money for each child and priority social housing. There is no need to stay with the child’s father because the state is a better breadwinner.A truly radical program would be to offer addicts a sterilisation bonus, like the baby bonus, so they can wreck their own lives but no babies are harmed in the process. If that’s too draconian, how about an incentive to take long-term contraception.
Nice. Nice. Devine is responding to the Tele’s favourite story from the past few days – a so-called “taxpayer-funded nanny” provided to an ice addict who had already had eight children removed by the state. Writers like Devine are particularly gleeful when they encounter these depressing edge cases, because it provides carté blanche for them to advocate ramping up some of the most regressive and failed drug policies of the past century. Treating drug addiction as a crime has worked so well in the past!
