A mother who struck her 12-year-old daughter with a computer cable, a broom, a wooden spoon and her fists has been given a suspended jail sentence.Eh..?
The judge said sentencing of such cases was difficult.Really? What's difficult about it?
The 37-year-old asylum seeker...Ah. Now it all becomes clear.
Judith McCullough, defending, said the woman had come to the UK in 2005 to escape an abusive relationship with her ex-partner in order to protect her children.What a bang up job she did too! Mother of the year, I'd say...
The relationship between the mother and her eldest child deteriorated because of cultural differences between the pair.So, we can chalk up another success story to 'diversity', can't we?
The girl told police that her mother thought she could treat her like she had been as a child. Children of her age in her home country were expected "to do everything", she complained.
