Julianne Marriott, campaign director of Don't Judge My Family, has said that the proposal of a tax break for married couples favours families with "a breadwinner and a homemaker".
Last week the Government announced £11.5bn of cuts, but this week they can find half a billion pounds for a marriage tax allowance to promote their fantasy 50s family, that's a married couple with a breadwinner and a homemaker.
It's out of step with modern families who come in all shapes and sizes and discriminates against families with single parents, widows and widowers, couples who both work and couples who chose not to marry.
