Should Child Benefit be renamed 'mobile credit'?

A survey of 1,398 parents with young children by gift and gadget site Prezzybox.com has found that 63% of under-10s have mobile phones, and more than half of parents don’t check how much their offspring use them.

Only the rich have tended to use their mobile phones indiscriminately. Now it is also the under-10s. Political researchers everywhere, particularly at Central Office, should start a debate on whether the government is paying parents too much in child benefits.
