Health Secretary Andrew Lansley,has spoken about 'elderly care' reforms,after the Dilnot report was published. He has stated that each case could cost as much as £100,000,and the government doesn't have the funds! Instead of flogging your house (which you scrimped and scraped to buy),the nice kind government will give you a loan to pay for your care home,the catch being,after you're dead,your house gets flogged anyway,to repay the the loan,with interest! If you live in rented accomodation,same deal,but your family pays back the loan instead,again with interest. Call me stupid if you must,not being a clever MP,and a member of the cabinet,but just try this on for size; the current Foreign Aid Budget is £8.8 billion p.a.,rising to £11.5 billion,in 2015,and it's 'ring fenced'! Which magic purse does this money come from,and why should we be financing projects like,an amusement park,and ferris wheel in Lashkar Gar. Don't give me the shit about,it comes back when the 'poor' countries purchase British Goods,using some of this money,think about it! You lend someone some money,they then use some of it to buy 'stuff' from 'your shop',but the money you lent them never gets repaid,why not just open your shop,and give it away,or let them take what they want for free,saves a lot of ****ing about. Get rid of the Department For International Development,stop giving away billions to people,who just take the piss,and spend it on the sick,and elderly in this country for a change! Hope I haven't been to 'radical'!
