    Eddie, a serious suggestion. If you are interviewing or discussing the comment made by Andy Burnham regarding taxes recognising marriage, can we have some questions to the commentators regarding why those woho are single/divorced/widowed are expected to pay more tax than those who are married? According to the Office of National Statistics, 30% of households in the UK are single occupancy (2001 census figures). If you live on your own, this proposed change in the tax burden will have a detrimental effect on your disposible income. If you lose your job or your financial circumstances change, it has more of an affect than for a married couple. If you are single, the chances are that you place less of a burden on the local council/authority than a couple with children. However, you pay substantially more per head than, say, a couple with two teenage children living next door to you. All the major parties seem to have this ideal that marriage is the "perfect" state for people to be in, and that those not in this position should help pay for those who are. Enough is enough. If there is money spare in the budget for a tax cut, it must apply equally to all, irrespective of their marital status.

    Recent research indicates that the tax & benefits system actually discourages 2-parent families, whether married or not.

    I'm surprised to hear you say that, Vyle. Do you have any details re the research? I find that every time a new tax rebate/credit/incentive is announced, it is invariably targetted to help "hard working families". It's never "We can cut a bit off income tax, so let's cut it equally, making life a little better for everyone". No, instead it's "Let's create a tax benefit that will help families". This is frankly insulting to me. Circumstances currently dictate that I am single. Why is it that my tax burden is deemed to be of less importance than that of a married couple/family? As I said earlier, a case in point would be Council Tax. As a single person with no dependents, I put less drain on local services that, say, the unmarried couple next door, and eve less than the family with three children opposite. However, I pay more per capita in local taxes than either. I don't mind paying a fari tax, but it seems that the "system" is set up to have a fair tax for familes, and an unfair tax on everyone else.

    rant over...
