As Dr Alf will know, the UK’s record on looking after children is unsatisfactory.

A look at reports on County Councils and their inability to safeguard children, as evidenced by “Baby P” and other notorious cases where “lessons were supposed to have been learned”, shows that the UK is the last place on earth anyone would look at to head up such an initiative.

The Rochdale grooming scandal, the emerging scandal overlooked by the South Yorkshire police in Sheffield and the failure to deal with child grooming and sexual abuse allegedly by television celebrities, establishment figures, disc jockeys and possibly politicians, gives even less reason for confidence.

Even this is not the whole story because we have worshippers of dangerous entities sacrificing babies whose births have never been registered in forms of ritual abuse the extent of which is not fully known to the authorities.

At a more mundane level, I know schoolteachers who have to buy their students breakfast because those children have gone without food because their parents are too lazy to cook, have spent all their money on drink, drugs and licentious living or lead such chaotic lives that they have failed to go shopping.

Finally, of course, we have benefit recipients producing armies of iligitimate and often unsocialized children, who are frequently beaten and allegedly abused by a succession of boyfriends, casual lovers and sometimes the actual father.

The UN needs to put its house in order and follow Dr Alf’s prescription, and the UK needs to address all the problems mentioned, starting with the police, courts and social workers doing their jobs.

Dr Alf is right to agree with David Blunkett although when David Blunkett was a Minister he said on Question Time that he “Could see no logical upper limit to immigration into the UK“.

Luton, Boston in Lincolnshire, Sheffield, Dover and parts of Birmingham are already powder kegs, waiting to be triggered by new unrestricted influxes of Bulgarians and Romanians in January 2014.

The Roma gypsies are according to the BBC, by far the most vilified minority group in Europe,something which puts them ahead of black people, Muslims, Jewish people worried about anti-Semitism which again on the rise, the Chinese, Irish travelers settling in places like Dale Farm in Essex, and other Eastern Europeans.

The UK can support a population of 35 million people, given its financial and other resources but currently has 70 million people living in it, including 5 million illegal immigrants and very little real growth in exports, full-time job creation, inward investment and house building (we have a 10.5 million shortage).,

As the EU enlarges, the problem will get worse because more people will come from poor countries and want to settle in the UK, actively encouraged by David Cameron, who wants to force wages downwards and drive up productivity using foreign workers rather than creating measures to make the indigenous population perform better and work harder.

Already each vacancy has 47 people applying for it, and without 3% economic growth, we cannot have full employment so with benefit cuts, sanctioning and more pressure on dole recipients people are fearful and angry.

Trouble is coming and it is not clear how the police with 20% reduced headcount and creeping privatisation via G4S and Serco will cope on their own.
