50k+ are able to child benefit. is raising a child really fucking expensive or something?
but two earners on 49k don't, innit?
i don't think i'm against it in principle - but they way they've gone about it is pretty shambolic ( i think, i haven't kept up to date with it too much)
related to combined household income? Surely it would've been a no-brainer to put that clause into this one as well,
just don't get it
IDS claimed child benefit for all 4 of his children, now he's changing the boundaries.
Typical Tory approach.
the dastardly curtailment of rights for the privileged is just typical of the Tory agenda

opening line in a segment focusing on how it affects individual families is something like 'Toby is an Accounts manager earning £60,000, his family stand to lose.....'
Does seem unfair and completely illogical that 2 people on £49k can keep it and one person on £50k will lose it though. Stoopid.
which she said was a total of £70k, thus negating any point she may have gone on to make.
