Compulsory insurance for all withdrawn

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
Ove the last few weeks the Labour party announced that compulsory insurance for all who wanted residential care could be one way of funding the care .
they also annouinced that 3rd party compulsory insurance for dog owners could well be implemented to protect the many people who are seriously injured by dogs .

after just one week of serious thought and "dozens" of e-mails the home secretray has withdrawn the threat of compulsory insurance for dog owners .

now why cant Andy Burnham do the same .....
Welfare Reform and NHS Reform are connected. I bet that when the White Paper comes out they will propose a government Insurance scheme.

Once the government have passed all the reforms through parliament every individual will become responsible for their own welfare & healthcare needs.
This will mean that every individual will have to take out insurance to protect themselves against ill health or unemployment in the future. That's why they have ruled out the tax option.
