Why Is Social Care Facing the Deepest Cuts?

Post  mild-red on Tue Jun 18, 2013 1:55 am

The title is from an article published by Dcotor Simon Duffy - Director of The Centre for Welfare Reform

He claims that 
Few people realise that social care will be cut by 33% by 2015 and on current projections will be cut by 50% by 2018. This is the deepest cut to any part of the welfare state since its creation and yet it is going entirely unnoticed. How has this happened?


further to that he adds
I still don't know whether the cut to social care is an intentional attack on support for disabled and older people or just a dreadful accident - an oversight by a confused new government desperate to balance the budget. But if they thought that most people wouldn't know what social care was or would blame local government for the cuts, then so far, they have been proved correct.



What do members think? Accidental or Purposeful?

mild-red, This is purposeful.  The Tory's simply do not believe in the role of the State or the welfare State, and all the time the British at large do nothing to at least try and stop these cuts, the Tory's will act like the bastards you rightly call them.  At present the coalition are getting away with
it, because the media are refusing to recognize that the David Cameron is using the deficit as a cover to reduce the State and the role of the State.

Good posting by the way.
