Boris' plan for adult social care, dementia, Parkinson's sufferers .......

    The millionaire MPs in the The Health and Social Care committee have met and had a long, long meeting to talk about all the things talked about in the last two decades:

    https://parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/ed870713-89af-4f8d-864f-d2affa4ba3bf

    Wise Jeremy Hunt MP nodded in all the right places with his 'concerned' and 'interesting' expressions on, like he was learning things we all didn't know.

    Now, nothing. The committee has gone silent, and moved on to the next topic. Boris and his rich buddies are focusing on getting rid of planning permissions for new builds, BREXIT etc etc etc, but have yet again pushed dealing with caring for those with dementia, Parkinsons, etc the most vulnerable in our society, right down to the bottom of their 'Things to give a toss about' list. He found tens of billions overnight for businesses for C19 issues, yet those who struggle in their old age, the most vulnerable in society got yet another endless talking committee, the thirteenth in twenty years, chaired bty Jeremy Hunt MP, a man who has already proved he is useless when doing nothing in his six years as Health Secretary.

    Don't let Boris do this. Please write to your MP and ask again for details of Boris' plan that he said he had, why the committee is dragging its heals, why the thousands of old people are still waiting for care, why the Government hasn't stepped in to finance those in desperate need of care but can't access it.

    It takes less time than making a cup of tea!

    I object to you saying that Jeremy Hunt did nothing in his 6 years as health secretary.

    He did quite a lot. Unfortunately it was all ****.

    Hunt is to the NHS as Gove is to education.

    There is no plan...about social care or anything else.

    The plan of all parties for the last 20 years has been to let families sort this out for themselves.

    All of them met, not just the millionaires.

    In January Johnson said he did not have a worked-up plan for adult social care, and that he would merely be "bringing forward a proposal" later this year. When asked for the date when a bill would be ready, he merely said: “We will certainly do it in this parliament” – prompting the interviewer to point out: “That’s five years away.”

    Because we've borrowed so much on Coronavirus issues, there is not going to be any money from government for adult social care. It will have to be a matter of tax and/or insurance for us all to pay.

    You seem to be posting under several identities tbh. And all the user names are live. Which user name should people reply to as it is very confusing-

    Interesting that one of the trio liked your post, but none have replied.

    This remains for me our biggest crisis going forwards. There is no plan and families having to fork out their life savings is still a massive problem for people. Along with climate change it’s something that doesn’t have a very quick fix and so no short term votes on it. It worries me considerably.

    I would have thought so given they are all still live and can be responded to.
