The Prime Minister has come under fire for taking child benefits away from high earners, on the premise that the money was originally intended for lower income earners.
He has been accused of taking from the rich money that was earmarked for the poor. These Robin Hood tactics have not gone down well with many millionaires, already reeling from what they consider an unfair attack on their second home allowances.
It's the sub minimum wage earners who are going to be hardest hit, warned an aggrievance of champagne socialists. 'Tomorrow I'm going to have to tell my au pair Gdanska that she's facing a paycut,' said a Milliband yesterday. 'And it's all because of that beastly chancellor.'
Concerned friends of the Milliband say emotional grandstanding is taking a heavy toll on the luvvy.
