Bishops, child benefit and responsibility

9 Apr

So, Bishops think two-child benefit cap should be removed?

Simple, innit. If you can’t afford to provide for your kids – don’t have them! Back in my antique life in a poor family, my parents focused on my wellbeing: no trendy trainers, no flat-screen TV, no Playstation, no fat bastard McDonalds – just simple stuff like home-cooked meals, repaired shoes, reversed shirt collars to deal with fraying fabric.  Those were the days.

Now, profligate child-bearing is a revenue stream for many: child tax credit, even working tax credit if you are an excessive breeder. No one should be paid to have children!

Of course, in the light of the recent explosion of abuse scandals involving Bishops and priests, no child benefits there.
