I heard the other night that rest home charges are to be capped at something like 35K.

People seem to think it marvelous that the old man does the washing and washing up.

If I were to take in another,say three, old people and make out that it was therapy to be doing the cleaning,the cooking,gardening, and turn my big shed into a dormitory I could be ninety odd grand a year better off AND have it all done for me.

Genius eh?
