Rewarding what is important

‘Do you think a man or woman who chooses to stay at home to look after their children is doing a less viable job than someone on an assembly line?’ When a worker goes out to build a car, the Government gives him a tax exemption, if she or he stays at home you double tax that family by not allowing that tax exemption to exist.” Iain Duncan Smith, from an interview in The Times

The short interview is well worth a read. His comments on family, the state of Britain and being a Christian in public life deserve reflection - whatever your politics.
