This is aimed at all those patronising gits who think that £3 a week is nothing.
Tell that to the pensioner whose pension goes up by £2.40 this month. Perhaps those who think that £3 is nothing to most people think we should abandon small pension rises, because that's where their logic leads.
To be honest I am fairly agnostic on the married tax allowance but I can see the arguments in favour of it. Ken Livingstone tried to pretend he was expecting a huge whack of wonga and professed to be disappointed at the extent of it. Well, in these economic circumstances it was hardly likely to have been a huge sum, but £156 a year is better than nothing if you're on a fairly low income.
Apologies that I can't seem to approve comments at the moment. Hopefully it will be rectified soon.
