This would be the UK version of trailer park trash

Society: or welfare queens or future Jerry Springer guests. I feel bad for the babies, because between the mother and her daughters, I don't see one adult in the picture. At least be freaking embarrassed that your kids are sluts and you are ashamed of taking taxpayer's money. But to blame the school for not teaching what is an obvious lack of morals and common sense is an outrage.

SISTERS Jemma, Natasha and Jade Williams proudly pose with their tots — after getting pregnant aged 12, 16 and 14. The three girls and their children share a council home in Derby with their twice-divorced mum Julie, 38. None of the toddlers’ dads is supporting their children — so the Williams family rakes in £31,000-a-year benefits. Moaning mum Julie last night insisted their school was to blame for them getting pregnant. Grandma Julie said teachers had failed her girls by not explaining about the perils of sex early enough. She added: “People are saying I’m a bad mum for letting this happen but I blame the schools — sex education for young girls should be better. “I do feel responsible, because they’re my children. But I do think sex education should be started earlier. “Times have changed since I was young. Girls are becoming sexually active in their early teens. They don’t realise how hard bringing up a child is.” Julie, who had her first child at 20, said she was stunned when she learned Jemma was expecting at 12. She added: “I was so shocked. She didn’t tell me for seven months because she thought I’d hit the roof. “I only found out when I took her to buy a new bra and as she was being measured I saw her huge bump.” Just weeks later she discovered Jade, then aged 14, and 16-year-old Natasha were also expecting. Natasha had previously had two miscarriages and an abortion.
So what about the fathers?

"The sisters get nothing from the fathers of their babies - relying on a string of state handouts instead.

Julie gets £250 a week, made up of £57 in income support, £51 in family allowance and the rest in tax credits. Natasha, who is now 18, gets £120 a week in family tax credits. Neither of her sisters receives anything directly. But no one in the family pays rent or council tax and they receive free nursery care — taking their total benefits to more than £31,000 a year. Both Jemma and Jade are still at school. Jade, now 15, is about to take four GCSEs. Jemma told last night how Jade introduced her to the lad who became T-Jay’s father. She said: “I didn’t tell anyone I was pregnant because I was too scared. “I only told my boyfriend David, who was 14 at the time, but I didn’t want to have an abortion. “He was my first love but now I’m gutted because he doesn’t want to have anything to do with me or T-Jay. “He was great to start with but he’s got a new girlfriend.” Jade said she became pregnant with Lita after a one-night stand. She said: “It was just one of those things really. I wasn’t using contraception and I suppose I just thought it wouldn’t happen to me. “I didn’t tell anyone for ages as I initially wanted an abortion, but I couldn’t go through with it. Her dad knows about her but doesn’t want to have anything to do with her and doesn’t contribute anything. We’ve put the Child Support Agency on to him. “But we don’t need their dads as we give them all the love and support they need.”

Yep, those babies are screwed.
