Family Friendly Government
Believe me when I say I am sympathetic to the plight of the single parent in that some of my nearest and dearest have been in such a plight through no fault of their own. However, when our dear Government runs a campaign extolling the financial virues of this state of life ("One Parent, Two Pay Days"!) one can't help but wonder whether Broon and his chums have got it in for the traditional family. The not-so-subtle-message is "COME AND GET IT!"
We will all get it, of course. But the 'it' may be something that we didn't really want and certainly won't be something the Government intended. But that's hardly the point is it? Have these people never heard of 'unintended consequences'?
