Britain’s welfare state: A return to the Tudor Era


This is the reality of 2020 and in many respects we have gone back to 1494, but it is not too late and make 2020 the year of change where there is full and real equality and not just a word that is spoken, but not meant.

This is not a sudden reversal to 1494 for it started some many years ago, well before 2010, but the last 10 years have been the worst.

Welfare benefits need to be reshaped to help those in need and not used as a punishment.

Social Care needs immediate funding to at least bring it back to 2010, which then was not sufficient.

It should not be seen as a crime to be disabled, to be poor, to be sick, etc for anyone of us, could be there tomorrow, if not today.

Boris needs to take this on board, Now, for to not do so, will create even more deaths than have been occurring and making a crisis in Social Care an even bigger crisis in health.

Health care has, over the last 10 years been continued to be funded, perhaps not to the degree as it should have been, but the drastic underfunding, or no funding for Social Care is causing more problems for health.

Whether we want it or not Social and Health care are very inter-related.

I now refer you to

Pease could I mention that the forthcoming Budget is an important opportunity to address the crucial issue of funding for Social Care, but will it.

Boris has promised, but will he keep his promise and even if money is made available will it be sufficient.

Boris has now mentioned it will take 5 years to get the funding, Social Care can not wait that long.

Boris needs to be told this is not good enough, so it is essential we keep the pressure on Boris and my petition ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care could be the means.

Please see below

We now have the New Year 2020.

However, if the ‘Crisis in Social Care’ is not Solved soon there will not be many more New Years for the care, required for persons in need of care, to be provided by Local Authorities due to their lack of funding.

This will then have a much greater impact on health care provision, which is itself in crisis.

I have therefore created my latest petition, please follow the link
