Children may have been a past lifestyle choice, but not everyone knows how life will treat them. If we don't want children for the poor people, I can accept that, but make it clear that is what is wanted and what your are voting for.
It's a bit like the heath service, we don't really want older people to keep on going, it's a bit expensive. Cuts already apply, try and get some physio treatment over 70, "old dear won't neet to walk properly will she".
Nice to see your parents had a council provided home, just why should we pay for the old and infirm, if you object to paying for children to be properly fed and housed, people are people child, adult or older.
It's fine that education is now only for the wealthy, oh yes it is, covering up pockets of poor teaching in secondary schools by having tutors, paying for travel to colleges because the Sixth form is a bit poor, subsidising the young adults at university, we may as well give up on educating children at all
