At last --someone has seen the light!

I have been saying for months it looked like CA and indeed carers would be abolished.

The protest should have been now not next year. It could already be too late.
All the news programs I've seen today have been filled with " if this government manage to get 2 million off benefits and back into work they may deserve re-electing." All benefit claimants are now looked upon as scroungers. Why are CUK and PRTC not on every news program shouting out that there is ...

And with all the welcomes for Telecare--how long before full time carers are included.?

The planned protest is already doomed, they are making sure that in the eyes of the public it won't be carers protesting- but a bunch of benefit scroungers.
<t>If your Mum has been offered a care package you should definitely get her to accept it. The plan should be formulated to accommodate Mum and Dad's wishes.<br/> <br/> The danger is that your Mum will struggle on until she realises she is too exhausted to carry on on her own- then it becomes an eme...
I'm not advocating murder here--but if a OAP (me) was to break a rotten egg in Ann McGuires face -that should get publicity http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_lol.gif Mind you-If I put an egg anywhere near her face it would probably be classed as cruelty to eggs. http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon...
What support from media and MPs have we got to lose??

Being nice for 40 years has achieved nothing for carers. How many nice protests get any media attention?
How many nice protests show the desperation that many carers feel?
