Just a few days ago, on BBC Breakfast, the reporter Jon Kay, while talking about the new allowances to be introduced for Care, asked a question; What about the incidentals such as food, heating and accommodation!
Now you might disagree with me, but I think food, heating and accommodation are fundamentals to everyone’s life and even more critical when you’re talking about the vulnerable in need of Care!
I’m sure Mr Kay did mean to say Fundamental and not incidental. We all make mistakes, but what did annoy me is that the BBC production team didn’t comment, retract, or correct this significant error!
The BBC is quick to jump on anything that may relate to colour, religion, gender, in fact, anything that is raised as a possible problem of the day by their thought police, but Care and those in need of Care!?
This seemingly minor statement, ‘the incidentals such as food, heating, and accommodation’, tells us all we need to know on how many, including the BBC, truly see the needs of the Vulnerable in Care… Incidental!
