The sad thing is (and I speak as a retired person) that we cannot afford free social care for the elderly. The burden on young taxpayers is simply too great.
Oh I'm not saying that there is a magic solution to the problem. Sadly. And it's also the fact that they did an immediate U-turn when it was unpopular. Did they ever reveal another plan? Or will it continue as is, with poor people receiving worse care than the rich?
I'd rather risk losing my house and have better education for the next generation and the working generation to be able to afford to buy a house of their own.
Except people in the 40s are still relying on their parents' money. And what about those who are their parents' carers? Who, when their parents die, will also lose the roof over their head? The *theory* isn't bad (because SOMEONE needs to pay), but the reality is so much more complicated. :(
