Social Care : LA Council Tax Rise Predicted

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
Horror of horror for many caught in this trap.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/po ... 67001.html

I don't earn enough to pay Income Tax , still £ 30+ per week under the starting figure.

Council Tax ? Pay full whack for Band A less 25% for being the sole occupant.

No relief here as I earn " to much " to qualify for any benefit.

Currently paying 10.7% of net income in Council Tax.

Whatever , Council Tax arrears are growing rapidly across the UK.

A further increase will send even more into debt just to keep a roof over their heads.

If Income Tax , no problem !
At least one side of the House tend to agree with my view but from a different angle ?

Strange bedfellows indeed ?

At least I don't snore ... honest !
Shove a penny or two on income tax and ring fence it for
care. Job done!

(make the ring fence a new law if necessary)
I agree ... as a sticking plaster solution.

Social care ? Whenever those two words are mentioned , how many times does the word " Carers "
appear shortly after ?

And yet , Social Care would collapse within days if ever carers stopped caring , even for several hours
a day ?

Built on the backs of carers , simply slaves to the system.

And why pay slaves when they " Volunteer " to care ?
