New Statesman on #Dilnot and #socialcare

This is a powerful leader from the New Statesman, ahead of the Dilnot Commission’s report on the funding of care and support.

It’s conclusion is spot on:

The government’s clumsy approach to public-sector pension reform has provoked the largest strike action in decades. It must show greater skill if it is to solve the care crisis. The longer ministers prevaricate, the worse the crisis will get. Should the coalition delay reform for political purposes, it will betray a generation of older people.
