20 hours free childcare – yeah right

Election rhetoric is meeting public reality real fast especially over Early Childhood care.

The government promised with much fanfare 20 hours free…and there in lies the problem.

It isn’t.

it is starting to hit home as well. Someone I know who works as a PA and has one cute little boy has tried to get her 20 hours of care…no dice, won’t be done, unless you pay a fee. This person I would class as a life long Labour voter that is now also trapped by Working for Families and had to turn down a pay rise. She is now probably never going to vote Labour again.

I predict that more of these stories will emerge over the next while and Labour as a result of over-nannying the population could well face electoral annihilation.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
