Caring Britain?

From the Mail
'It is unbelievable they are moving people including a 93-year-old, a 98-year-old, and a 106-year-old on a day like this.
Today, with snow lying on the ground and council gritters standing idle because the government says they mustn't use salt and grit on anything other than major roads, several very old people were forcibly removed from their homes and rehoused - because the council said so. ... Maybe they had nothing else to do with their time.

Caring Britain?

It makes you wonder, sometimes, it really does - especially as a similar sort of place in Rigbytown was 'urgently' closed down more than two years ago, yet is still standing.

Pse dont get me started on how our elderly are treated. Housing Associations in general treat the elderly like dirt in that they, the elderly, haven't a clue what their rights are resulting in the HAs getting away with 'murder'. If Yvonne Hossack could not stop this happening then no one could.
