'Broken Britain' - a broken claim

But don't listen to me - listen to them!

The Economist has produced a superb piece featuring some fascinating statistics on the claims behind 'Broken Britain' - teenage pregnancies, a rise in alcohol consumption, etc. In short, they're not true.

So read it - please. At least look at the pictures. Enlightening or reinforcing - either way, they're important.

Sorry, that's all you're getting from me. There's nothing I could add that can't be summarised by calling the Conservative Party a bag o' wankers.

Many thanks to the excellent exclarotive for bringing this to my attention.
