The article presents the author's comment on the British government's ruling out of the tax-funded option for long-term care costs. It reasoned that it would be unfair to put such a heavy burden of paying for care on people of working age, says the author. According to the author, it is disingenuous for any political party to have people believe that without all of them contributing in some form they will have a care system that will meet their expectations.
