"Social care accounts for 37 per cent of Kingston’s spend – £45m a year. And the council has already warned residents it is likely to remove a cap on the amount people contribute themselves to their care. Local resident Jane Young has been told she won’t be getting the £85 a week she currently receives from the council for much longer. She has a severe arthritic condition which means she can’t walk or talk without oxygen, and needs morphine to ease her constant pain. She uses the money she gets from the council for help round the house and an occasional driver, because she can’t drive herself far without oxygen. She told us: “If I was to use the savings I’ve got left to pay a driver – I wouldn’t be able to fund the equipment I need to live relatively pain free – and without a driver it’ll be a bit like being a hermit – I’ll be able to go about three or four miles and that’ll be it.”Beyond doubt, we all have an elderly relative who will be in dire straits, financially, as a result of Osborne's 'cuts' and whose family will be required to 'help out'.That begs the question: how and what with?
Sooner or later, the voting public need to get off their knees from their 'subservience' and 'acceptance' - of the Con/|Lib/Lab; and the media, whose combined 'cabal' has managed to hold them in 'thrall' - and found their 'collective voice'!
As regular readers will know, I don't 'hold' with swearing on this blog but - 'Christ on a crutch' - it is about time the electorate started looking at the policies of what amounts to the only credible 'opposition' to the present 'cabal' and looked at the policies of the only 'opposition', at present, to the Con/Lib/Lab 'cabal' - which is Ukip and the Libertarian Party.
When considering my previous post, the question 'Why' remains. It is this question that will surely turn the electorate against the three major parties and their 'love affair' with the European Union. Whilst not agreeing with all the policies of the Libertarian Party, I would rather see a coalition between Ukip and the Libertarian Party forming a 'government' than what we have at present!
