I assume you are referring to the right wing brigade Suella's mob. Lets not mix up the facts here - paying non UK nationals minimum wage or below to do certain jobs is not an answer it is part of the problem. Pay carers a decent wage regardless of what nationality they are.

Good posts TBS & pimp. The tax issue is fundamental to the future prosperity of the country. Of course selling the idea of tax increases is a tough one with voters but a good serious politician can surely make the case for increases in order to improve the NHS & care for the less well off and those who need help. 

Our next door neighbour, recently widowed, is 85 and suffers with alzheimers. She has no children. She cannot make her own breakfast or indeed remember her daily medication. Social services understand what she needs to carry on living at home but do not have the people to give the care so their only suggestion was to sell her home and move into a nursing home. 

My wife & I were not happy with this solution so my wife now provides her with care morning & evening. It only takes her 1.5 hours a day but it sets our neighbour up for the day, gives her good nutrition and she gets her medication. It is heartbreaking to see someone who once made a real contribution to society - paying her taxes, working for 40+ years being neglected. There are millions of similar stories throughout the country. When are the government going to realise that providing care for elderly, vulnerable people is not a burden which should be done by underpaid carers but a service which we should pride ourselves on giving to those who have contributed throughout their lives. 

That is a remarkable post. A fine example of everything I have tried to explain in setting up this thread.
Community is important, people matter, caring matters.
WELL, DONE GPR & Mrs GPR, you're an example to us all.

With regard to RR. post on care homes, yes correct.
It a very hard life working in a care home.
Both my wife's nieces were carers in a local home.
the care was wonderful, and it is a place where my sister-in-law died, sadly.
these cares could well be in the poverty trap themselves, with the wage they are paid, so GPR Rochester is correct to flag that up.

Finally, and in complete contrast, SA!4, .is in a word of his own!
Did he actually READ what I said in the leader post regarding the lad, Joan who lives near me.
She is not just an isolated case, both here in Llaneli, but up and down the country.
Hasn't there been enough coverage recently about people struggling out there. for u SA!4??

Truss wasn't listening. Tories weren't listening, there needs to be an ELECTION
I stood yer on tanner bank
