We have an increasingly ageing population. And I am one of those adding to it. So I may have (after all, who knows what the future holds?) a vested interest as to how the present crisis in adult social care might be resolved.

So how would the council know if the bins are full unless someone tells them? I guess that if they were to send council employees out and about to check the bins the council could  then be accused of wasting council tax payers' money.

Perhaps we might ultimately end up with a two tier health provision system? Private health care for those that can afford it,  whilst for those of lesser means they would have whatever might be left of the NHS?
