Solving the crisis in Social Care


Social Care is just as important as Health Care, but does not receive the support is should do.

With this in mind please 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

This Petition needs You, please sign to show your support for you will not know when you or someone in your family will need social care.

Trump administration proposes rule to punish disabled people : Daily Kos


In its ongoing efforts to make life just that much more difficult and humiliating for vulnerable people, the Trump administration is floating a new rule that would add in layers of bureaucracy for some people receiving Social Security Disability Insurance. The administrative costs for that added level of review would basically zero out any savings to the program, proving once again that cruelty is the point for Donald Trump and team.

Trump preaches violence against Iran, US opponents


Trump is trying to muddy the water and is playing to his base, but does he understand he is playing with fire, does he or does he not and either way does he even care.

Now he is doing anything to change the US population focus away from his impending impeachment and making out that America can not live without him as President, while, he is one of the main causes that America is the way it is, as he is going out of his way to provoke Iran and others within the Middle East, but why.

This is easy to explain, for what better way to change the focus, then create a war with Iran and others within the Middle East.

Does he believe that America will win a conflict or again does he even care and then again he could always bomb Iran and get rid of it for ever.

Is this really the actions of someone who is sane, for it is clear he has serious mental problems on top of all his other health conditions.

This 14 March 2016 video from the USA says about itself:

All the Times Trump Has Called for Violence at His Rallies

After he canceled a rally at a Chicago university Friday night due to safety concerns, Donald Trump told CNN’s Don Lemon “I certainly don’t incite violence.”

Trump, however, has a history of calling for violent acts against those who protest at his events that goes back until at least August of last year.

Trump exploits Iran war crisis to incite violence against political opponents

15 January 2020

On Monday, Trump retweeted a photoshopped image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a hijab and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer in a turban, superimposed on an Iranian flag with the caption “the corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue.”
