    The whole benefit system is wrong in who gets it and who does not, how much and why which will not be sorted by this government or the next and the next etc etc and so it will go on

    Ah well, the Govt. are making more claims about stopping a new influx from eastern europe being able to claim benefits here, I wonder if it could be applied retrospectively?

    Actually you lose twice because, unlike with your neighbours income, there is only one tax allowance applied to the joint income. You and your wife can't combine your tax allowances together. So there's another loss of at least £4000 on top of your £1055 child benefit loss. Strangely, finances are considered as individuals with the income tax but not with child benefit...

    I read the UKIP are going to offer a combined marriage tax allowance. Conservatives are shooting themselves in the foot. It will split their vote.
