Letter: Your Say - RE: Yob culture.

Byline: Carol Lambert

RE: Yob culture.

IT'S about time the community had its say and let's get things done. My own comments aren't directly involved with thug culture, but I have quite a lot to do with young mums - my point is - unmarried, unemployed young mums are having baby after baby, five, six, seven children. They live in overcrowded homes.

No wonder thugs evolve from this kind of environment.

I can't understand how this situation is allowed to continue.

Hardworking decent couples can't afford many children, but unemployed families can have so many children as come along, the country pays, it's not right and it's not fair.

I understand that mums are given pounds 500 when they have a child plus their benefit goes up. pounds 500 is a lot of money when you have nothing.

It's about time we stopped all this, anyone is allowed one mistake but child after child is ridiculous. No wonder these kids turn into thugs.
