I haven't read the whole thread so apologies if this has been covered. What about the additional cost to the working couple of child care? That's going to be 400-600 a month they have no choice about paying. Or does one of them give up work?

I'm probably in the "worst off" category here as I earn well over the cut off and my wife works part time and under it. We'll lose the benefit and still have to pay childcare. I can't say as I've noticed the "benefit" anyway.

At the end of the day we all know there's going to be a price to pay for getting us out of the sh!t Labour got us into. Will I be pissed off with all the benefit cheats and scroungers out there? Of course but that's nothing new!
