Is Britain going to Hell in a handcart?

Can our broken society be fixed? - by Iain Duncan Smith in the Sunday Telegraph


"The economy has been growing for 14 years yet the bill for social security payments has risen by £35 billion in that period, and there are now over five million people dependent on benefits, 3.5 million of whom are economically inactive.

The Government constantly tells us that we need more economic migrants to fill the job vacancies while seeming indifferent to the waste of human capital at home.

Although almost everyone is capable of doing something, too many people in Britain are unable or unwilling to work, increasingly detached from the rest of society; in too many places unemployment has almost become hereditary.

I have met many inspiring leaders of voluntary groups in the inner cities who have shown me what works and what doesn't work. Government action, they say, although motivated by good intentions, can often exacerbate existing problems or create new ones.

That is why Britain tops the international league tables for social problems. In the last 15 years alcohol consumption amongst adolescents has doubled, with 10 per cent of 11- to 12-year-olds regularly binge drinking.

Britain, when compared with other advanced economies, has the largest proportion of drug addicts, the highest levels of personal debt, the highest levels of family breakdown and one of the largest gaps in educational attainment between rich and poor.

With the cost of crime standing at £60 billion the failure of the Government to tackle the causes of crime is also evident; over two thirds of all offenders are alcohol and drug addicts, two thirds come from a broken home and have the reading and numerate age of children of 11.

Furthermore, one third of all young offenders were in care, yet only 0.6 per cent of all children in this country have been in care."
