Having already lost my daughter's Child Trust Fund by virtue of her being born after 1 Aug, I see now I am to lose my Child Benefit in a few years' time. I appreciate that families drain resources and therefore should have to pay something back, and I'm very happy to accept my responsibility for repaying the almighty financial fuck-ups that have characterised our nation's economy (actually, no, I'm really not). But if you're going to take money out of my tax-paying pocket Georgie, could you also have a word with some of the lazy tosspots who are perfectly capable of doing a day's work but elect not to?
I have always put the kids' child benefit into a savings account for them for their future, but I probably needn't have bothered as at this rate, they're not going to have one anyway.
