Labour party buying military votes?

Lots of talk this morning in the Labour party conference about naming streets after those who die in our names and making it an offence to beat up servicemen (isn’t it already then?).  Isn’t this grasping at straws and I wonder what Labour has in mind for the families, spouses and partners?  I wonder where the money for more childcare is going to come from and I doubt if that alone will automatically make spouses more employable.  Those partners married to servicemen and women on a career path who will see lots of movement and domestic turbulence could still well find increased military salaries being offset by lower partner financial contributions to the household.
