This is ‘caring Conservatism’ in all its shabby filth, folks.

People who are sick or disabled don’t have money to throw around but Conservative councillors in Northamptonshire don’t care, because they do.

If anybody else doesn’t have the same resources, they can rot. And if they do – of course – they don’t need benefit.

So who is really sick in this situation?

A shameless Tory council is poised to become the first in Britain to start charging the sick and disabled for their own care assessments.

Furious Labour MPs and campaign groups hit out at plans by Tory-run Northamptonshire County Council to force people need of social services to pay £50 for a needs assessment before they can access care.
