Given BBC sympathies, one can hardly be surprised at the easy treatment afforded to Dr Gillian Leng from N.I.C.E. and her suggestion that it might be a good idea in some places to have midwives in schools. Oh, and of course we need more contraception to help bring those unwanted pregnancies.Maybe we should fit out a class-room or two with birthing equipment? I enjoyed the passing reference to the “lack” of antenatal facilities for what was called “non-English” speakers without ANY exploration, naturally, of what lies beneath this seemingly innocuous comment. You won’t have the BBC or quangos like N.I.C.E. allowing any debate on why the UK taxpayer should be funding antenatal facilities for immigrants?
