So the Tories did want to cut Child Benefit!

Danny Alexander, effectively Mr Osborne’s deputy in coalition, said he was “lifting the lid” on Tory plans which included limiting child benefit and tax credits to two children.

He claimed his party blocked the move, which he said was worth £8bn.

But Mr Osborne said the claims were three years old, and never policy.

So it did happen, it was 3 years ago but if never actually became policy because the Lib Dems effectively blocked it. Note no denial of the pertinent facts here. Sadly the BBC headline is rather misleading or potentially biased in Osborne’s favour.
