|How Many More Lies Will Cameron Tell|
and How Many More Promises is he
Going To break?
I used to feel sympathy for Cameron losing his son and father, but I am now ashamed to say, that I believe that David Cameron uses his son and father to gain sympathy and votes and peoples trust, and I am sorry but I find that utterly, utterly profoundly reprehensible.
Just before midday today, a Bristol mother called Riven Vincent announced to the internet: "Have asked social services to take dear daughter into care … They have refused extra respite. I can't cope."
This is a mother at the end of her tether, outrage at this decision has quickly built up, especially when it emerged that Cameron had visited Ms Vincent at her home during the pre-election campaign and promised he would do nothing to harm the care of disabled children.
Ms Vincent cares full-time for her 6 year old daughter and after asking for help today she received a letter today telling her no more help was available, she decided that her child would be better cared for in a residential home.
She said she was disappointed with David Cameron and would be angry if she wasn't so tired.
Ms Vincent sleeps in a bed next to her daughter in order to monitor her breathing.
"It will be devastating for me as a mother. I want her here, with her family," she said. "I never imagined I would get to this point. I don't want her in a residential care home – it would destroy me. But without extra help, I find it hard to see how we can meet her needs at home.
It would cost the local authority between £2,000 and £3,000 a week to look after Celyn in a home, Vincent estimated, compared to £15 a hour for a carer to help at her own home.
"We are committed to continuing to improve respite care for carers of disabled children. We have said that we will provide £800m in funding for short breaks for carers of disabled children over the next spending review. This represents an increase in year on year funding from 2010," she said.
Charities welcome this funding, but are concerned that the removal of a ringfence will mean that the money risks being diverted elsewhere.
David Congdon, head of campaigns and policy at Mencap, a charity for people with learning disabilities and their families, said: "Given that this money is available, there is no justification for cutting these services. As local authorities tighten belts we expect to hear more and more concerns from parents about respite care. Families and carers love the people they care for. They care for them willingly, but they need help to do so."
Words cannot express the contempt I feel for David Cameron, I truly do not know how that man sleeps at night!
David Cameron is nothing but a cheap-skate liar, who will use his own family to get elected. David Cameron is a whore!
