It's a vital crutch to the Left to be able to claim to protect the interests of the more disadvantaged members of society. Johnathan Leftwinger MP certainly tries to deflect criticism of his failures with such a claim.
Caring for the likes of babies or mentally handicapped children is all well and fine of course. It's just going on to include violent criminal vermin or junkies as 'vulnerable people' too which causes the System to malfunction.
And then the PC frauds in charge want to get PAID and RESPECTED for all their murderous crap!
