Die jüngsten Ausschreitungen in London haben den britischen Premierminister David Cameron veranlaßt, Familienpolitik wieder stärker in den Vordergrund seiner politischen Arbeit zu stellen. "Ehe- und Familien-Mainstreaming" sollen in das Regierungsprogramm aufgenommen werden. Um die „kaputte Gesellschaft reparieren“ zu können, müsse bei den Familien, bei den Eltern angefangen werden, so der Premier in einer Regierungserklärung. Künftig sollen deshalb alle Gesetzesvorlagen auf ihre Familientauglichkeit hin geprüft werden.

„Wenn es Familien schadet, wenn es Bindungen untergräbt, wenn es die Werte, die Menschen zusammenhalten, mit Füßen tritt oder verhindert, daß Familien zusammenbleiben, dann sollten wir es nicht tun“, erklärte Cameron seine Maßnahmen.

Statement von David Cameron zu den Krawallen in voller Länge:

“Let me start with families. The question people asked over and over again last week was ‘where are the parents? Why aren’t they keeping the rioting kids indoors?’
Tragically that’s been followed in some cases by judges rightly lamenting: “why don’t the parents even turn up when their children are in court?”
Well, join the dots and you have a clear idea about why some of these young people were behaving so terribly. Either there was no one at home, they didn’t much care or they’d lost control.
Families matter.
I don’t doubt that many of the rioters out last week have no father at home.
Perhaps they come from one of the neighbourhoods where it’s standard for children to have a mum and not a dad……where it’s normal for young men to grow up without a male role model, looking to the streets for their father figures, filled up with rage and anger.
So if we want to have any hope of mending our broken society, family and parenting is where we’ve got to start.
I’ve been saying this for years, since before I was Prime Minister, since before I was leader of the Conservative Party.
So: from here on I want a family test applied to all domestic policy.
If it hurts families, if it undermines commitment, if it tramples over the values that keeps people together, or stops families from being together, then we shouldn’t do it.
More than that, we’ve got to get out there and make a positive difference to the way families work, the way people bring up their children……and we’ve got to be less sensitive to the charge that this is about interfering or nannying.
We are working on ways to help improve parenting – well now I want that work accelerated, expanded and implemented as quickly as possible.
This has got to be right at the top of our priority list.”
