This is what the cost of living crisis means for those with a terminal diagnosis | Helen Barnard | The Guardian


The government’s refusal to raise benefits is forcing those facing the final days of their lives to choose between food and warmth, says Helen Barnard, associate director of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation

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

Unfortunately many of the past UK governments have not shown a great deal of ‘Duty of Care, which is, especially so for the current Tory Government which as virtually shown no ‘Duty of Care’.

So far as I can see this current Government is of the opinion that those in need of care and need both warmth and food are to be left without any means to achieve this and some Ministers and Tory MPs stating instances which are no help whatsoever and just emphasises their complete lack of understanding .Yes, Lee Anderson MP, this means you, with the possible exception of Tory, Michael Fabricant MP and Home Office minister Victoria s MP, however, not her comment ‘or anyone else in government’.
