Votes for Children

Parents, I imagine that unless you’re loaded you aren’t exactly keen on the Coalition’s efforts so far. The massive real-world cuts in public spending – particularly on education and children’s services – certainly worry our family. Surestart has been crushed and the scandal of £9K per year university fees is hard to forget.

But why has this happened? Why has an electorate full of so many parents allowed a government to be formed that seems to be the enemy of young families? That’s down to the demographic issues and the make-up of the Tory party.
