Promises,promises,promises is all we hear.
This country is Billions of pounds in debt,also the personal debt level apparently is over £2000 per household,over and above that.
I would say it is a bit presumptuous to expect very much in the way of financial handouts from any party at the moment.
And lets remember that many of our large companies are "globally" owned so is it wise to demand extra tax from them and possibly drive them away.
The social care bill,there is simply no easy answer to that one,but it is unfair to use someones assets to pay for their care when someone who has been less fortunate and possibly less frugal gets the same level of care for free because they have nothing, they have squandered the lot.(good for the economy perhaps)
The answer is to spend everything while one can but most folk will want to pass something on to the next of kin, and you cannot have your cake and eat it..
This is one of several issues that with exception to the Tories has not been answered or very vaguely if that.
Sadly there are to many people wanting to much for free in a society that can no longer afford to pay its way.
Plenty of grouching old crofters out there with far more sense than many of our so called well educated politicians I can assure you.
