 Lack of Male Role Models in Families Could Have Led to Brit Riots

An official review looking into the riots caused last summer in Britain has revealed that more than 60 percent of dysfunctional families in the country have no male role models.

The review looked into more than 120,000 families which were classified as trouble and found that over 72,000 were headed by single mothers and the children had no male role model to look up to.

Another problem identified by the review was the size of the families with 20 percent of those studied having at least five children.

"The absence of a positive father figure is a huge problem and often fathers who are present have severe drug and alcohol addictions and are not working. Clearly we want to work towards a situation where the fathers in these families provide stability, which means getting them back to work, so they can bring money in and be a positive role model to their children", Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles said.
