Abi Wilkinson It seems we had more influence than we suspected! I suspect May’s social care proposals will eventually be extended to all long term care (either by her government or a future one). It’s one of the more sensible approaches to sorting out the UK’s healthcare / long term care issues. Why should a middle class family be able to hand £1m home to kids whilst their expensive healthcare is covered by low wage earners? Far better to tax the unproductive unearned wealth from property inflation than it is to place more strain on the backs of labour.
