Whitehall Scumbags And Errant Fathers

by | 6th, June 2007

FATHERS who fail to pay child support are to be targeted by a revamped Child Support Agency.

The agency has come under fire for its lack of organisation and failure to collect an estimated £3.5billion in maintenance. But now the Government is eager to crackdown on runaway dads.

Central to the new plans will be the naming and shaming of errant fathers with their details posted on a new-look CSA website. Guilty péres could also be fined and even have their names put on a credit blacklist.

Plans to impose curfews and confiscate passports are also currently being considered.

However, the names will only be published after consent from the mother has been obtained.

A senior Whitehall source says: “We will be writing to the first group of mums to get their permission. These dads are failing to pay maintenance for their kids and causing real hardship and misery. We want to hear what mums think about this. But we believe it is right to let people know what scumbags they are.”

What’s the world coming to – a senior official using the word “scumbag”.
