29 October ... and the end of Austerity ?
Whatever he's been smoking , can I have some ?
Okay , what MIGHT we expect ?
A wish list ?
Sorry , there ain't no sanity clause ... thanks , Chico !
Two goodies ... yes ... goodies !
Politics ... Tory Conference ... " The Party for everybody " ... provided you can afford the membership fee ?
How better than to " Thank us " for our devotion to the Cause ... at the point of a bayonet ? ... and reward us for our continuing " Self sacrifice " ... self patronising ********** ( Censored ! ).
A couple of scraps almost odds on now to come our way ... ahead of the Green / Red Herring Paper.
1. Taper on that £ 120
... £ 1 for a £ 1 ... will benefit all of us juggling work with caring ... diminishing as support services disappear nationwide.
2, CUK will smile ... CA now increased to match rate as for Scotland
... whoopie ! ... a campaign that actually worked ?
If anyone has NOT been paying attention , classic political half truth ... a pay rise which , in reality , is not a pay rise !!!
" The WHO Rise "
... Don't Be Fooled Again ... thanks lads ... our senior citizens with their " My Generation " ... and now us ?

That's it folks ...
IF nothing is done for our carees ... unfreezing PIP / AA levels ... increasing HA and thus HB ( As rents increase nationwide , THE GAP grows wider ) ... FREEZING council tax rises ... a lone carer / caree will be WORSE OFF even with the above taken into account.
The thinktank’s senior economic analyst, Adam Corlett, said: “While the prime minister this week repeated her claim that austerity is over, significant cuts in support for millions of low-income families are set to continue next year as a result of the ongoing freeze in working age benefits.
“The budget represents a last chance to cut short the benefit freeze. Scrapping it would send a strong signal that, from the perspective of low-income families, the government is committed to ending austerity.”
So , whilst CUK will smile ... pat themselves on the back ... in CarerLand , the actual result will be to INCREASE our Plight ... if one looks at the PARTNERSHIP
position ... combine income of both carer and caree ... and then measure against a basket of essential outgoings ... home owners will be better off than those renting !
Smoke and mirrors ... the bane of CarerLand ?
No goodies ?
Don't blame me ... I would also lose out ... £ 1 win double !
