Good luck to Surrey County Council in seeking to make up the shortfall imposed on the social care of its residents by the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Secretary of State for Health, both of whom sit for constituencies in Surrey.
But this ought not to be left to local authorities, some of which will of course always be far richer than others.
There would be obvious savings in a national system.
Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Jonathan Ashworth ought to present them to the affluent, yet increasingly hard-pressed, householders of Surrey.
