So up til now on tax credits one parent can stay home while the other parent works.
And for almost 20 years it’s been seen as completely acceptable

An example is a family with 3 dc
The FT working parent earns approx £26,000. The SAHP receives approx £100 a week in tax credits

Not only on Universal credit will that amount be much less (approx 30% iirc) but the previously SAHP will be made to attend the job centre and job search as a condition to receive Universal credit

The aim is so NOBODY is on “benefits”

There seems to be an assumption from the general public that this will only affect people not in work. THAT IS NOT THE CASE

True, it's free at the point of use- or meant to be, anyway. There seem to be a number of examples on here where it's not! The thread has touched on the fact that some SAHPs will cost more in extra childcare funding than they'd otherwise be paid.

luangua exactly.

What I said way above in the thread, the government becoming increasingly dictatorial and patronising . Taking away personal choices with propaganda, perpetuated by those who suck it up.
Yeah it's ok for us tax payers to fund childcare. But not mums to stay at home, obviously! Money and taxes don't we know, keep it flowing, the world keeps turning.

We have the right to remain stupid.
