I have just recieved n email from '10 Downing Street' with regards to the petition ' Stop carers and there families living in poverty." and I am confused and disgusted with the reply. after reading it a few times it becomes clear that they are stating one thing and in another paragraph and on the direct gov site changing their minds.
I'm posting the link from the email for those of you who haven't had one.

Here is the link to the carers allowance page]www.direct.gov.uk[/url]

I still think that the way carers are treated is wrong and th response from 10 Downing Street only reinforces this.
