CUTS: Policy as popular as the poll tax

With reference to the cuts to tax credits, Mr Osborne’s cuts are wrong.

Families cannot quickly replace the money with extra hours, especially in an area of high unemployment.

This is a “get on your bike” mentality. There will be families who bring up children while balancing work hours in between. His simplistic process will be as unpopular as the poll tax.
