Only trying to help

From the Register:

The government has set out its "vision" for helping the disadvantaged of British society by sharing intelligence about them across the public sector.

...The government's plan to help the disadvantaged was outlined in its Social Exclusion Plan on Monday. The moral basis of the Plan was "rights and responsibilities". That is, the right of the government to interfere in the lives of people it thinks don't know what's good for them, and the responsibility of these "customers" to acquiesce.

As it stated: "The parent of an at-risk child should be given support, but it is also incumbent on them to take this support."
