I was watching a couple of children pestering their mother for sweets whilst waiting at the till at our local supermarket. The mother took the view that they hadn't earned any this week and didn't deserve any. There was tantrums from the younger child, and the mother explained that she couldn't afford any as she had bought the cake they wanted and didn't have any money for sweets. The elder said words to the effect that "You don't need money, Mum, you just put it on the card"
Why do you think this made me think of the TUC?
Incidentally, the mother stuck to her guns. Potential Cabinet material, I would think!
