Child Benefit

Asked whether the PM agreed that the decision to limit child benefit was excruciatingly difficult, the PMS said that it was one of the tough decisions that the Government had to make. The vast majority of people would be unaffected and HMRC would be informing families who would be affected. Those with the broadest shoulders should carry the greatest burden and it was very difficult to justify paying child benefit to the wealthiest 15% of families.

  1. Have they not thought of any new answers yet.

    Please just answer on e question for me Mr Cameron and I may consider reversing my new tax avoidance policy if you convince me.

    Is it fair that a single parent earning 60k a year with 3 children should lose her child benefit. Taking into account the child care costs and the fact that thje family next door who have a 100k split income keep theirs.

    You can’t and you won’t so I won’t ever support your party again.

    We are sick of hearing this those with the broadest shoulders bull s..t.
