The right thing

•A couple of suggestions for the upcoming Budget:

1) Give wealthy individuals the chance to 'opt out' of the children's allowance. A communication to every recipient of the allowance could be phrased: "Tick the box if you would like to redistribute your children's allowance to parents in greater need."

It could also include the phrase "parents/guardians have the right to reapply to receive the children's allowance at any time".
