Spot the Tory Press Spinning the Tory Lies

A quote from the Murdoch owned Times yesterday

"Elderly people will no longer be forced to sell their homes to pay for care under a scheme proposed by the Conservatives. "

Actually, what it should have said is

"Elderly people who are able to afford it will no longer be foreced to sell their homes. Those who cannot afford to pay will still have their homes taken from them, under proposals put forward by the Conservatives.

I was amazed how easily this one slipped under the radar.

£16,000 for a married couple is a fair sum. It would have been well above any lump sum my parents had at retirement.

I notice that even The Daily Telegraph, that essential reading material on the Costa Geriatrica, was more than sniffy about the policy.

Watch this one die the death of a thousand ignorals.
