Teenage single mothers will be sent to live in supervised homes rather than given council houses, Mr Brown announced.
They will be taught how to bring up children under plans designed to reduce the number of teen pregnancies.
The policy, which has echoes of the Victorian homes for fallen women, is an admission that Labour has failed to tackle the serial abuse of the benefits system by single teenage mothers.
Vowing not to shy away from taking difficult decisions on tough social questions, the Prime Minister admitted that the scandal of children having children has gone unspoken for too long.
He told the conference: It cannot be right for a girl of 16 to get pregnant, be given the keys to a council flat and be left on her own.

The flats are probably going to be given to North African illegals.
“The most popular name for baby boys in much of England Jack has been overtaken by Mohammad. Last year in London, twice as many babies were named Mohammad as the second-place name, Daniel.”
Wow....nothing like getting the timing right for that educational lesson.
Mickey Rourke keeps on keeping on...
This is a move designed to have fewer births.
Same reason Hillary went back on the campaign promise for $5000 for every newborn child.
Wouldn’t want to incentivize more American or British people, would they.
ALWAYS look for the leftist angle with these people. NEVER take something at face value if it’s supposed to be conservative. It NEVER is.
This is a HUGE problem in the U.S.
It's how the teens get their own apartments.
The lazy freeloaders just have a kid, and they know they'll be supported by the U.S. taxpayers for life.
I like the unwed mothers home idea. Mothers and their children are given what they NEED, but nothing they want. By denying them what they WANT, they'll think twice before they get themselves knocked up. Having a baby would no longer get them all those easy, life long freebies they're after.
Brown looks like a comedian and G-daffy looks like someone's old lesbian aunt.
Interesting observation. Brown looks like former Monty Python member Terry Jones. Khadaffi usually looks like the mutant offspring of Keith Richards and Bob Dylan, but here looks like a punch drunk and swollen Sylvester Stallone.
It’s an admission that a keystone of the welfare state—subsidizing the breeding of single mothers—produces nothing but generations of sociopaths. But they can’t come out and say it.
LOL!! Exactly what I thought. Talk about putting the cart before the horse!
Wouldn’t an IUD or Norplant be better? Then they can still do the “education” and more certainty it won’t happen again for a while.
Yep. It creates dependent democrat voters here. That's why the teachers unions advocate the dysfunctional lifestyles in the government schools. More social failures = more left wing voters.
This is going to create a huge mob of homeless young men. I wonder if they thought of that?
I totally agree. It’s about time the USA addressed the problem in the same way...for all the reason we are well aware of.
