The Curse of the Meddling State

There’s a beeb article today entitled The curse of the meddling parent. So called Helicopter Parents are ‘hovering’ over their children and “employers want graduates who are self-reliant”. Maybe Mr Brown should listen, if New Labour continues on its current course we’ll all have Helicopter Social Workers hovering over us making sure we make the right choices from food to education. The right choices that is for the government’s statistics.

If employers prefer self-reliant graduates surely the whole country would benefit from self-reliant citizens.
