National Care Service. WTF???

The Government proposed to introduce a new institution called the National Care service as well as introducing a new compulsory levy (another word for tax) to pay for it.

But hang on a tick, don't we already pay for this service, either via NI payments and the NHS, or via local councils and the council tax?

So what the fuck is the NCS and the care levy for?

Are we going to get corresponding reductions in NI or council tax to take account of this new alternative funding stream?

Yeah, we already know that answer don't we?

And in an effort to give us the change that their slogans are pushing at every opportunity but we see very little evidence of, the Conservatives jumped in and proposed their own version of the same.

Give me strength.....
