ANDY BURNHAM health minister has asked the Conservatives to hold a "conference" as to how the "FREE PERSONAL CARE AT HOME " can be funded but he wants the Conservatives to stop the so called negative campaigning re social care ( looks like ANDY is on the run)

If proof was ever needed to show one and all that this free personal care at home is a total cock up there you have it, the health minister now just days away from the bill passsing through parliament wants to talk about HOW to fund this scheme, we must remember many organisations supported this scheme that was when we were told the funding 700 million £`s would come from the N.H.S. 400 million £`s and local authorities 300 million £`s what if the funding is at the expense of other plans will we still support the free care at home plan .
I am worried about what the free personal care at home will deliver for each individual rather than how it is actual funded 6 hours per week for those with critical needs will never be enough the so called 280-000 who will qualify for critical care is an underestimation and what of the 130-000 who will only receive SIX weeks free care at home do they have to pay after the six weeks ..
the whole FREE PERSONAL CARE AT HOME PLAN is in total disarray and far from sorting out the funding we should be looking at how the scheme should be set up in the first place thats right back to the drawing board .
ANDY BURNHAM- if he needs the Conservatives to help sort out the mess, he may as well leave the free care at home till the tories are in power as it is obvious he is not capable of organising a p*** up in a brewery .......


and the 1 question HOW CAN WE FUND THIS SCHEME??????????
In a debate today re social care i was so confused i just dont know what the hell is going on .


FREE PERSONAL CARE AT HOME ... it was stated that this would be funded by the N.H.S.400 million£`s L.Authority 300 million £`s

THE NEW NATIONAL CARE SERVICE ... may be funded by the removal of both A.A. & D.L.A.


RESIDENTIAL SOCIAL CARE .... compulsory insurance , voluntary insurance , a one off payment of £25-000 Labour / £8-000 Conservative or pay from the estate on death .


but in the debate the removal of both A.A & D.L.A. looked as though they could be used for any of the 3 above schemes .
Labour now look as though they want to talk about a death tax of some discription set at 10% from home owners only ??

in the debate it was obvious non of the M.P`s had a clue if they dont know what is going on how do we ..
and for ANDY BURNHAM to say let the people have ther facts so they can chose get real ANDY we the end users will have no choice at all will we ......
why do these M.P`s talk over each other well it`s so we the public who pay their wages cant understand what they are talking about the whole show is just that it`s a circus act ....
