    This is a new low for this website, giving this self-entitled individual attention.

    She came from what was apparently a very good home, receiving a good education. She attended Grammar School, but left at 16. What was going on there?

    She met a man. She had a child with that man. What was going on there? Then she realised she was a Lesbian. She split from the father and became a ‘single mum’.

    unfortunately, when you have children, your needs become secondary, and it’s up to you to have the character and financial sense to be able to look after that child.

    If she (and the father of her child) failed to do that – her (and his) problem.

    She is the classic self-entitled Leftie; the role of the state is to clear up after me when I make the wrong choices to look after those I am responsible for and who depend on me.
