Reader’s Comment of the Day: Astronomical parenting ‘costs’ hide an inconvenient truth


In response to Rob Slane: My kids cost me nothing like £230,000 apiece. But then my childcare is free, Busy Mum wrote:

I have more children than this author, and agree!

The Government needs fantastical sums like this, however, to justify large transfers of wealth from men to women in the divorce courts, as well as large transfers of money via the tax system from those who support their own children to those who do not.

I guess I am not the only one to notice that taxpayers’ children, who live with both biological parents, are the last in the playground to have the latest craze in gadgets/trainers/hairstyle etc.
