England–“You couldn”t avoid doing a double-take when you read it.
“Karen Matthews, mother of the missing schoolgirl Shannon who thankfully was discovered alive and well a few days ago, referred to her daughter and one of her other six children as ‘twins”. These children are actually aged nine and ten.
“But Ms Matthews says they are twins because she thinks that”s what you call children who have the same father. With seven children by five different men, she seems to have no idea of what having the same father actually means.”
An interesting observation from Melanie Phillips’ recent article Reaping the whirlwind (Daily Mail, 3/17/08). Seven children by five different men–you go girl!
I bet each of the five relationship breakdowns were all the father’s fault, too.
