Labour peers savage Brown’s free care plan
Sam Lister and Philip Webster
"A key plank of Gordon Brown's re-election strategy was condemned by members of his own party yesterday as irresponsible, unaffordable and based on a myth.
"The Prime Minister's plan to offer free care at home to the elderly, outlined yesterday in the last Queen's Speech before the general election, was compared to an admiral firing an Exocet into his own flagship.
"Lord Lipsey, a former member of the Royal Commission on Long-Term Care, also accused the Government of peddling a pernicious myth that people are better cared for in their own homes than in a nursing home."
