What manifesto pledges will go next?

When H&F Tories reneged on their manifesto pledge in 2006 not to introduce home care charging, there was uproar amongst disabled and older people.

The H&F Coalition against Community Care Cuts wrote recently to local political parties about their plans for social services after the 2010 elections. Despite asking three times, they got no response from the local Conservative Party.

So what secrets have the Tories got up their sleeves? We know there are plenty of holes in their budget so expect more cuts in services for older and disabled people if the Tories retain control of H&F council.
