  1. That’s a hell of a lot of poverty to save a small amount of money. Why don’t they target their cronies and tax scammers instead. they owe billions more than what this will save. As for the Labour party they need to hang their heads in shame Oh and whilst II am on a rant scrap the £42+ billion high speed train that only the rich will ever be able to afford to get a ticket.

    • And what happens is families break up, too.

      There’s a reason of course they haven’t modelled the increased support costs…
