The article discusses the possibility of Conservatives forming the government in Great Britain after the upcoming elections and its influence on the social care sector. Despite the efforts of shadow children's secretary Tim Loughton to repair the party's broken relationship with social workers, there is still deep suspicion about what the party will do when in office. Due to the recession, it is said that there will be a major squeeze on public finances regardless of who forms the government.
