The Tory propaganda posters haven’t been up for long, but they’ve already been subjected to some ‘artistic reinterpretation’ in Hackney…

Spotted in Dalston Lane.

    I find it frightening that while their other policies crash around their ears, they cling desperately to the notion of penalising children whose parents get divorced by removing tax breaks. “Mummy and Daddy don’t love each other any more – also no Christmas presents.”

    I just find it slightly odd that ‘liberal conservative’ David Cameron gave in to party traditionalists on this. It does not fit in well with the ‘at ease with modern Britain’ image he liked to project early on in his leadership.

    Yes, of course there is evidence that kids brought up in a two parent household tend to be happier and more successful. And I agree that it’s right for government to implement policies that will try to promote family stability. But:

    1) What’s to say receiving an extra few quid in tax benefits is going to keep a couple together who have serious disagreements, and is it even right that they should be kept together (there also being much to suggest unhappy marriages can have averse affects on children)

    2) Being economic well-off seems to promote family stability and happy successful children. Instead of giving away money to those who get married (disproportianately benefiting the middle class – even according to Tory research) why not concentrate on helping those at the bottom of society where most of these problems lie
