RE "Furthermore, it places the financing of the 'social' care of adults onto the shoulders of the local councils and not on government."

The provision of adult social care has always been the responsibility of the local authority so no change there. The increase in tax and therefore funding will be very gratefully received by the disabled and elderly who have borne the brunt of the cuts in funding over recent years.
