Which is why I said I think it should be means tested. So I think we agree in principle if not method.
I believe ALL benefits should be taxable, then everybody is on an equal footing. There can't ever be an argument for a benefit to be tax free in a country where the tax allowance is so large. Iy makes the concept of working pointless for many people of working age.
