Red Wall betrayal mapped:

Horror stats show how Boris

turned his back on Brexit loyalists

NEW analysis highlights how Brexit supporters who voted Conservative for the first time in 2019 will be worst impacted by Boris Johnson’s decision to water down the social care cap.

The Red Wall constituencies of Workington, Barrow and Furness, Don Valley, Redcar and Bishop Auckland are among the hardest hit, all of which voted Tory for the first time in decades in 2019. New research from the Labour Party indicates those in the north and midlands will bear the brunt of the increased costs, in what could be seen as a betrayal of those who backed Mr Johnson over his promise to “Get Brexit Done” two years ago. 

Plans to make changes to the way the cap on care costs is calculated were narrowly voted through the Commons on Monday night.

The Prime Minister saw his majority slashed to just 26 after a seizable Tory rebellion over his new policy.

Under the changes, means-tested council support payments will be excluded from a new £86,000 lifetime limit on costs.

Critics have warned the policy will hit the poorest hardest.

Those with a house price worth under £186,000 will be hit with higher costs, while those with homes worth over £186,000 will be unaffected.

It means voters with assets, including their home, worth £1million would lose 10 percent of their wealth.

Those with assets worth £100,000 would lose 80 percent of their wealth to cover the costs of care.

While Britons will not be forced to sell their homes to cover the costs while they still live in them, the value of the property could be used to off-set the cost once they pass away.

The Labour Party’s analysis highlights constituencies in the north of England and the midlands would be the areas most impacted by the changes.

With house prices lower than in London and the south, the change would have a far greater impact on voters in Red Wall seats.

The north west of England, where 46 constituencies have an average house price of under £186,000, will be most severely impacted by the change in policy.

Yorkshire and The Humber is the second-worst impacted region, with 36 seats likely to see voters forced to pay higher costs.

The north east is the third most impacted area, with 25 MPs seeing their constituents forced to pay more under the policy change.
