An unfair policy that fails on every test

An unfair policy that fails on every test By Daily Mail Comment PUBLISHED: 23:36 GMT, 3 January 2013 | UPDATED: 14:59 GMT, 4 January 2013 Unfair: The new plan makes a mockery of David Cameron's oft-made promise to stand up for the traditional family On Monday, the Government’s wrong-headed, fiendishly-complicated plan to strip child benefit from 1.2million families will officially come into force. The Mail has long argued this policy – which will remove the benefit altogether from couples where one person earns more than 60,000, yet leave untouched a household in which two parents earn up to 50,000 each – is grotesquely unfair on mothers who wish to stay at home to raise children. It makes a mockery of David Cameron’s oft-made promise to stand up for the traditional family, punishes aspiration and, as we reveal today, will disproportionately impact on voters in the Tory heartlands.
