Congratulations to Tom Pride for covering this first. He writes:

UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson likes to go on (and on) a lot about people she frequently refers to as “feckless” parents.

Although to be fair, as Janice has herself been taken to court twice for failing to pay for the upkeep of her own son – despite earning £79,000 a year plus expenses as an MEP –  presumably she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to feckless parenting.
