I've screenshot this exchange amongst friends in my circle, because I don't think enough people have caught on to the enormity of this yet. Raab has let it slip there'll be insurance products to buy for social care to avoid selling your home. This, despite more than 10% NIC rise
Oh, and just in case you had missed it: Where the hell is our NIC and tax going since tories took over, certainly not on the health or social care bill:
tories have now: raised your taxes & NI higher than any time since WW2, cancelled the Pensions Triple Lock for elderly, increased care costs for the poorest, removed £20 UC uplift, uplifted the NIC so that nurses will see a real terms pay cut
and all these were supposedly to help pay for Social Care

We are literally being hammered,


making "insurance products" available means that US healthcare will end up being the ones building new homes.

bet ministers will have shares in these companies too!
Manifesto Pledges

We will not raise income tax, VAT or NI

We will get Brexit done

We will build 40 new hospitals

We will continue to spend 0.7% on foreign aid

We will keep the pension triple lock

You won't have to sell your home to pay for care
and one final reminder on this thread

our energy bills may double next April, the lock covers the current period till next April only. My bills have already gone up nearly 30% this month

COVID is airborne

Your actions tell the entire planet's population you are working hard to reach herd immunity through infecting our kids with a pathogen that kills & maims.

Daniel Hannan called for the:

scrapping of:

* the Temporary Workers’ Directive – which guarantees agency staff receive equal pay and conditions with employees in the same business
* the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – that gives individuals control over their personal data and limits its transfer to other countries.

* the ban on products made from genetically modified (GM) crops – allowing US food derived that way into the UK
* the REACH Directive – to outlaw chemicals linked to health problems including cancer, thyroid disease, hormone disruption and slow development

* End of Life Vehicles Directive – to achieve environmentally-friendly dismantling and recycling

@DailyMailUK you are doing everyone a disservice, especially the public and GPs, by refusing to incorporate the facts about funding and per capita equivalents.

121,943/123,707=98.6% ImageImageImageImage
If more GPs fall ill with COVID, LESS people can be supported and / or seen.

My family and I continue to receive outstanding support from our GP, including phone and video appts and even home visits.

Your lies are dangerous.
as Jon Trickett MP has stated: 265 GP Practices closed permanently during the pandemic. "It’s completely unacceptable for the government to seek to blame doctors for the NHS crisis.

Blame lies squarely in Downing Street." Image
