Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well Cameron obviously slept over last 40 years...His vision of the family is not going to happen (again). Church is totally hopeless in spreading the message, so do not count on it.
Trouble is that somehow people need to learn (again) how to take responsibilities of having a family (this has been lost lately). That's why we have 32% of single parents in conservative Switzerland, and who knows what percentage in those "progressive" countries. I do not mind people doing whatever they want with their lives if it's not about children.
So in a way I am all for less tax for married people (and even less for those with children). Because people only "understand" two things: 1. incentives 2. Force.
Sorry but I am a little conservative when it comes to children because I see what is happening around and I don't like it a bit.
All tho Cameron will need to make those less taxes dependant of the time those marriages will last. Otherwise people will get married just to avoid tax, ha-ha.
Seriously, I am afraid it's not going to work anyhow. Level of selfishness in our societies reached epic proportions...
