Tories, David Cameron: “Give married couples and those in civil partnerships tax break of £150 a year.” When politicians can’t think of anything sensible to say, they come up with the most ridiculous ideas. That is how David Cameron has produced his plan to give tax breaks to married couples.
For a start, what planet is Mr Cameron on to suggest that a couple will get married or stay together because the government is offering them £3 a week for this benefit.
The good thing about these suggestions is the laugh you get. However the concerning thing is what is in the minds of these leaders who are campaigning to run the country?
In my opinion marriage is a thing of the past, it is an institution and only crazy insane people live in institutions. It is a way to avoid difficulties, but whenever you avoid difficulties and challenges you have avoided growth also. Married people never grow. Lovers grow, because they have to meet the challenge every moment — and with no security. Marriage is a hell, but sometimes people need it. They need to pass through the hell of it, and they cannot understand the hell of it unless they pass through it. I had to pass through the hell twice and had it not been for that, I would never have understood the difference between true love, freedom and no security and neediness, social acceptance and security.
