If you don't do the care, don't criticize the carers
I'm glad at least someone recognizes that carers are being forced to do more while the government (central and local) withdraws further from its responsibilities to the most disabled and vulnerable. Thank you Sarah Ditum. She's absolutely right that there are more carers (evidence shown) and they are doing more each (also evidenced) as services are withdrawn. She's absolutely right that this government should be saying some sort of thank you rather than berating us for not doing even more. I suspect Norman Lamb isn't himself a carer - and if he isn't, he has no right to criticize anyone else - whether they are carers or not.
