A Classic Picture Of Modern Britain

A couple let an 18-month-old-toddler wander the streets while they went on a drinking spree.

Glenn Ellidge, 38, and Lisa Zykowski, 29, were so drunk they allowed the little girl to fend for herself and left her with a drunken stranger.
I can't link to the picture of this couple that the 'Mail' has printed. Not that I'm technically unable, you understand, I just can't bring myself to look at it again. Once was enough...
The court heard that Ellidge had 129 offences against him - 88 for theft, while Zykowski has been convicted of 26 offences - 11 for theft-related offences.
Why did two alcoholic drug takers with criminal records as long as your arm, and several alarming incidents witnessed by members of the public, have care of a child anyway? Beats me! Still, now at least the law has finally caught up with them...
At Manchester Crown Court, Zykowski who is seven months pregnant and Ellidge, both of Westcott Avenue, Withington pleaded guilty to child cruelty.

They were both given an 18-month community rehabilitation order and made subject to a 12-month drug rehabilitation order.

"Will the social services be hovering over Zykowski, ready to snatch her child the moment she's born?"

They should... And judging by many of the comments, it'd no be challenged by most people, either.

When it's born with foetal alcohol syndrome it'll become property of the care system for life.
