Every Theresa May U-turn since she became Prime Minister

He said the original Conservative proposals left many facing an unlimited bill, with no state support until assets fell below £100,000, and no means for individuals to plan ahead to cover possible care costs while keeping inheritance aspirations intact.

She insisted her plans had not changed and that she had not made a U-turn on her manifesto pledge.

"Nothing has changed, nothing has changed, we are offering a long-term solution for the sustainability of social care for the future", she said, shaking her head and raising her voice as it was described as a u-turn by journalists. "You can't trust the Tories - if this is how they handle their own manifesto, how will they cope with the Brexit negotiations?"

That picture has changed following a week in which both the Conservatives and the main opposition Labour Party set out their election pitches to voters.

"And what is Jeremy Corbyn's plan?"

"The dementia tax is a sorry echo of those other hated Tory taxes - the poll tax and the bedroom tax - and is a reminder that under the Tories, life is always tougher for working people".

May even used her appearance on the One Show with husband Philip to say that she had a "stable" childhood.

We will make sure there's an absolute limit on what people need to pay.

British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday urge voters to back her to deliver the country's exit from the European Union, playing one of her strongest cards in the election campaign as opinion polls show that her party's large lead has shrunk.

Under the proposals OAPs would be forced to pay for care in their home unless they have less than £100,000 in assets.

"The Conservative policy on social care is a complete shambles and has caused millions of pensioners to worry", he said in a statement.

She went on to announce that a cap on social care costs will be included as an option in a consultation on reforms to be launched after the General Election. "Theresa May still wants to take older people's homes to fund social care".

Pressed whether they were fit to be Prime Minister, Chancellor and Home Secretary respectively, Ms Dugdale said: "It is very clear to me that we are 20 years on from that Good Friday Agreement and that transformed Northern Ireland".

The Liberal Democrats accused Mrs May of "panic", while Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said her Government was mired in "chaos and confusion".

But this is nearly certainly the reason why the Tories have stepped up their attack on Corbyn, warning that the tough Brussels grandees would make mincemeat of him if he led Britain's Brexit negotiations.

In interviews since the manifesto launch, ministers said a cap - as proposed by a government review in 2011 - had been rejected.

"They haven't explained to the millions of people, who are desperately anxious at the moment about what kind of care they are going to get in the future, desperately anxious for children as well about how their parents are going to be looked after".
