We're Supernannies From The Government, And We're Here To Help, Mum

So apparently Tony Blair convened a "Parenting Stakeholders" seminar at 10 Downing Street yesterday, and all I can find is a 100 references to the government's need to provide more reality TV-like parenting advice.

Which would make sense in a country blanketed with security cameras where the government's building a cradle-to-grave womb-to-tomb database of every kid. But is there really no takeaway from this seminar besides "Blair promises more Supernannies"?

update: Oh, there's also "fasbos," or Fetal Anti-Social Behavior Orders, a kind of finding triggers all sorts of governmental oversight. Of your fetus. [timesonline]
