Keir Starmer warned by Labour peers not to waste political capital on Lords reform | Labour | The Guardian


Policy could distract party from pushing through other urgent measures, leader is told

============================================

If Starmer goes ahead with this proposal it just shows that he is no better than the Tories as the Lords should not be a priority there are many more important issues well before this.

A major priority with many others is to safeguard Social Care as if it is not then it will be the demise of the NHS, for without a substantive Social Care system the burdens on the NHS will be everlasting and it won’t be able to exist in any form. Social Care is in dire need to substanial financing and people need to be encouraged to be employed in Social Care, but the demeaning pay rates in Social Care are not any encouragement and also the working conditions, lack of sufficient travel expenses, holiday entitlement and sick pay. Immigration also needs to be improved so more workers can come from non-UK countries, not only for Social Care, but for agriculture and hospitality to name 2 more, but there are many other areas.
