Child Benefit Stole My Child’s Allowance

Child Benefit?
Are my children on the dole?
Re-introduce it
then reduce it
while you share the pot of gold
to cover all the asses
of financial institutions
so the bankers can keep banking
on your generous contributions.

Michael Noonan, did you know
that you were once a child?
Someone had to care for you
......once upon a time.
Were you loved and helped and taught and hugged,
fed well and regularly?
Would you have had your primary carer treated
the way you’re treating me?

In came the doctor,
in came the nurse,
out came the baby to no money in the purse.

         The BlogMarch continues tomorrow at At The Clothesline
           with a personal and detailed account of how a cut in Child Benefit 
                                     would affect this family:
