This caller, who cares for her mother, broke down live on LBC as she told Theresa May that under Conservative plans, she will be homeless when her mum dies.

I have to ask- what has Anna from Putney ever done with her life, apart from caring for her mother? Has she never worked, or been married, or somehow got some capital of her own? I think this is probably a political wind up.

Clearly you have no clue what "Feckless" means, you just described yourself using this word, not her.

Englishman, "capital" is quite hard to amount nowadays. You don't know how much she gets paid or maybe she had to spend that when caring.
I have a pretty well paid job but my savings are £0. All I have is debt. Granted, I've only been working full time for a few years, but for many saving is simply not an option especially in London.

It sounds as though the daughter has been as reliant on her mother as her mother has on her. Why didn't they think about putting the house into joint ownership years ago.

Tories don't seem to understand that money can only be spent once and things can only be sold once.

I think you need to do about more research before you makes assertions like that. Our whole economy is based on debt and selling debt, in fact it is how money is created in the first place.

This is the really evil thing about the Tories Dementia tax - After a loved one has passed on the survivor is often forced to downsize because they have much less to live on. If there is a charge on the property, the elderly surviving spouse would be left with £100K (less that 80K after moving costs). What could that buy in Lewes? So an elderly spouse, who perhaps spent decades caring unpaid for their partner would either have to move hundreds of miles away from their relatives and community or face being destitute.
That is not only unjust, it is beyond disgusting in my book.
This tax is no less that a wholesale asset-strip of middle England in order to fill the pockets of the same parasites in the city who gambled away my pension.

You know what this is - this is the Tories punishing the lower orders for voting Brexit, when they were expressly told not to. Someone's going to have to make up for the gravy train the ruling elite are losing. The money saved will be handed over to tax dodging corporates and their shareholders - one way or another.
By the way, why is nobody bothered about Tory election promises to introduce their control over what we can and cannot see on the internet? Its a popular idea in North Korea and China, I understand.
