How was that for you Theresa? Did we just witness Old power at the polls?

How could anyone be so idiotic as to imagine that older people would back a party which was planning to introduce punitive new taxes on those needing care?

Call it the dementia tax, or whatever else you like, older people knew only too well what it was all about - unlike the politicians. Many older people are only too familiar with the benefits and funding system.

Clearly, the Tories thought that older people had nowhere else to go and would have to vote for them anyway. When all the figures are in, it may just turn out that older people did not turn out. Politicians should take note.
