As a carer full time of my Husband, I feel very annoyed my this allowance is taxed. !! Its really pathetic and really all us carers need more. Many of us cant get out to earn another penny. We are saving the Government billions. But what do we do give our monies to the EU !! Well its time to stand up for our rights.With the huge rising costs of electric & gas and food on top. Yet other people get job seeks allowance. so come on lets please have a decent carers allowance. regards amandah
