Tory’s secret £8 Billion child benefit and child tax credit welfare cuts revealed

Order Of Truth

torycutThe Liberal Democrats have blown the lid on Tory plans to cut £8 billion from the child benefit bill if they are re-elected.

The Liberal Democrat chief secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, made a statement in which he revealed that the plans for the cuts was outlined in a document entitled “Welfare Reforms Quad Summer Reading Pack” by Iain Duncan Smith which was sent to members of Quad (the four most senior cabinet members) in June 2012.

The proposed cuts contained in the document included:

  • Limiting support to 2 children in child benefit and child tax credit, so cutting up to £3,500 from a family with three children.
  • Removing the higher rate child benefit from the first child, an average cut of over £360 for every family with children.
  • Means testing child benefit – cutting £1,750 for a two child middle income family

    TUSC IS THE SOLE PARTY TO OFFER
    TO REVERSE THE RISE IN RETIREMENT AGE AND
    PAY A DECENT STATE PENSION

    For the ‘crime’ of my little website trying to tell people about parties offering to pay any state pension at all, especially to women, I cannot inform people of alternative parties that offer to end starvation, ban sanctions and workfare, end benefit cuts and so much more.
    http://www.anastasia-england.me.uk

    So share my little website on your social media before I am blocked from everywhere, because the big parties are stuck in the past and do not realise that multi party governments – the norm throughout Europe – is the future.

    People are simply not voting for the big parties. in 2010 the non-voters had a landslide victory in most if not all voting areas. Even more people are not registered to vote today than even in 2010.

    Now am banned off blog Left Foot Forward, saying it is for progressive left thinkers.

    No comments published on Poor Side of Life (Think someone on that blog is running as a Green candidate
    who did not even know the Greens had abandoned most of the policies that would have helped the poor).

    How can my little website be spam, when all it does is help people swap votes between say TUSC and National Health Action party in England. Informing about variety of parties gathered onto one site, when no-one else seems to be doing that and not a member of anything myself

    LABOUR DOES NOT OFFER US ANY STATE PENSION JUST THE SAME AS THE OTHER BIG PARTIES, UKIP AND THE GREENS
    See why at end of my petition, in my WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT section at:
    https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/state-pension-at-60-now

    The sole way to get any state pension seems to be to bring in TUSC and the other parties into a group of parties supporting Labour into the UK government after May.

    TUSC could not rule on its own, as it is running only 113 MP candidates in England.

    326 MP is the minimum threshold to form a UK government.

    TUSC and the other little parties altogether would still not reach the 326 MP minimum threshold to rule the UK parliament.

    So these parties could only form an alliance with Labour in England, to bring about a UK government.

    Help me to help people please.
