Anne Widdecombe and Esther Rantzen are talking about sex education and it's hysterical. Anne's position (the kids are having sex because it's "cool") is the voice of someone who lives at home with her mother and clearly never had the faintest inkling of teenage sex.

An abstinence campaign works well in "some areas of the States" because - I'm guessing - it's the bible belt, full of people with religious convictions. What Esther calls "the more authoritarian morality". While her phrase is laden with personal angles, I think it's true.

And I really think Anne Widdecombe sounds... frustrated? About something, clearly.
