I saw this report on Midlands Today this evening. Yet again, homecare services for some of the most vulnerable people in Walsall have been found to be inadequate. When will those in Walsall Council’s barely adequate Social Services department cut loose with the cash and actually pay for the service these people require to be able to live?
Next time you see your councillor trumpeting something – like the new parking system, the ring road or the laughable flirtation with twatter and web 2.0, call them on this. Ask them why both they and social services sold these unfortunate people down the river to the very lowest bidders. Ask them why there’s not enough money in the pot to look after the disabled and infirm properly, yet they manage to fritter away taxpayers cash on consultants and extortionate salaries for top council officers.
I suggest you read the following links; if you’re not outraged, then you’re not paying attention.
