A very interesting piece just published by ‘Researching Reform’::
I’ve just posted the following comment:
I should be astonished if there’s not a strong causal link between the state’s assaults on the nuclear family, and the increasing incidence of mental health problem in children and young adults. Assaulting the nuclear family and financing the lifestyle option of single motherhood have been the default policy directions of successive governments for 30+ years, and accelerated under the Labour administrations (1997-2010) due to the nefarious activities of Harriet Harman and her like. The Conservative-led coalition has pursued the same policy directions. The proposed ‘tax breaks’ for married couples is truly pathetic – not all couples who are married will get it, and those who do will benefit by less than £4 per week.
