I’m pleased the social care budget is finally being addressed because successive governments of either political persuasion have spoke about sorting it out but never have. It’s not without its faults and families will still have to find £86,000 before the benefit kicks in, this will still involve a lot of properties being sold to fund this figure but at least it’s a start.
Why couldn’t the money be raised through council tax rises and let local authorities delegate the necessary funds to the areas in their own patch that need this funding? Just a thought.
I still have a real beef with the likes of Branson,Musk and Bezoz not paying their fair share whilst throwing billions at pet projects like space travel to get even more headlines. I think ordinary folk deserve a better deal but it has to come from somewhere.
