    I'm not sure we actually got round to doing anything. The troubles with having coalition partners that you disagree fundamentally with is that you disagree with them fundamentally.

    If it's already been scrapped then it's fine, it all depends on whether the worst government in history had done something good or not,

    Well it would because it would punish the child for the folly of the parent.
    I would argue that having more children then you can afford is a kind of child abuse so yes, but it isn't the child's fault that they were born to poor pearents so they would be taken into care.

    Yes because there has not been enough spent to make it a worse decision to stop it.

    I'd be interested to see your working, but that can wait for when you actually do it if it's not already done I guess.

    And you don't think that being brought up in a family on the breadline, where they are poor and their family can't manage money is also traumatic. Infant it is likely more traumatic because children and very sensitive to the moods of adults and would pick up on the constant stress in the household.

    About £1 billion has been spent of a project which is estimated to cost about £80 billion and will do little but further centralise the UK economy.

    Taking child benefit away from them is the thing putting them on the breadline.

    Because they are having too many children and the state shouldn't have to pay for an indefinite value of children.

    Ahh, now I get it. Jesus Christ Superstar. Must say though, he almost makes up for being a total ass with School of Rock.
