Don’t judge my family – update

The Tory proposal for a Married Couples Tax Allowance came up at the Fawcett Society debate in Bristol last Thursday, and I think it’s fair to say that the audience was not impressed. I’ve blogged about it on here before, so won’t repeat myself, but it’s good to see the heat being turned up, today with a letter from 70 widows and widowers to the Telegraph, pointing out the unfairness of the policy, which wouldn’t benefit their families at all. As they say, money “should be spent to support children and families who need it most”, not to make rather nasty political gestures in a bid to win over the Daily Mail editorial team.
