A team of "supernannies" is to be sent to some of Britain's most deprived areas to help parents control antisocial children, Tony Blair revealed today. The parenting experts will be sent to 77 areas with high levels of unruly behaviour, teenage pregnancies and truancy from school.
The £4m scheme will also force the parents of disruptive children to attend parenting courses.
Writing in the Sun newspaper, the prime minister claimed the initiative would tackle the root causes of crime and disorder.
Heaven help us when they discover that the real root cause of disuprive children is ..., wait for it ..., having children.
