So the Government now recognises that there is a ‘moral case’ for promoting the traditional family through the tax system?
Never mind that the Conservative Party has been saying this for a long time, and being accused by Labour of being ‘nasty’ and judgmental.
I am yet to be convinced that Labour actually recognise that marriage is actually the best state in which to bring up children. Of course not. This latest about-face is down to nothing more than political expediency.
And they have the cheek to accuse other people of ‘flip-flopping’.
And speaking of Labour’s U-turn, please remind me: who was it abolished the Married Couples’ Allowance for under 65s, in the first place?
Step forward, Mr G. Brown.
