Wet liberals to blame for violence

7th August 2009 at 01:00

Your article on the Cambridgeshire court case concerning the exclusion of a violent child must have been read with despair and disbelief. No doubt we can look forward to seeing money diverted from the needs of other children to compensate the boy for having his feelings hurt. It never seems to occur to our wet liberals that violence today may be linked to the continual message that when children experience a setback in life, they may turn to anger and violence in the sure knowledge that someone will always be waiting to make excuses for them.
