My defence for being entertained by this (found, incidentally, at Samizdata) is that I’ve been working in an office full of pregnant women and new mums for a while now, and thus it’s entertaining to actually see the wee feckers being funny, rather than just hearing about how simply adorable they are…

And it’s good to see that the young one can in effect entertain themself. Because in the brave new world that will be strictly verboten.

Couples who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the government’s green adviser has warned.

Green thinking: condemning old people to painful and lonely deaths. Isn’t that nice of them?
