National has given up the legal process of appealing against rulings that people caring for family members must be paid. They are putting a brave face on it, but their appeals were churlish and defied a sense of fair play.
The unscientific poll associated with the story above has about 90% of respondents supporting payment to family carers, with a slight preference (the 90% is split 50% to 40%) against capped payments. However the government plans to cap them anyway.
