EASTBOURNE LibDems have slammed Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell after a week when National Insurance was increased to help cover the cost of social care.

Is that fair?

Here’s the LibDems in Eastbourne: “The Conservative MP for Eastbourne & Willingdon voted to raise taxes for working people – breaking her manifesto promise.

This tax rise will not solve the crisis in social care funding, it won’t fix the staffing crisis in care homes and it does nothing for millions of unpaid carers looking after loved ones at home.

Ordinary working people are being asked to pick up the tab for years of under-funding by the Conservatives. It’s not fair and that’s why across our communities people are turning to the Liberal Democrats instead.”
