Tories promise tax perks for married couples

Briefing: this is still undefined, but is likely to be very limited. The Telegraph suggests the 'restoration of the Married Couple's Tax Allowance' may be on the cards. Party members and others should be demanding a transferable tax allowance: so the tax allowances of a full-time mother are not wasted. Anything short of this is a tax on the traditional family: they will pay more tax for the same income than a two-income family. This is grossly unjust.

See the Telegraph article.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
