"if you have dimentia the state will claim your home and assets above £100,000 to "pay for your care"."

They made you pay up to £72K before anyway if you were well off. Seems perfectly reasonable to me that the well off pay for their own care - and why should a valuable home be excluded. The money is taken from your estate. Seems rather generous to me excluding the last £100K.

We have an aging population, and the current approach (and the pensions triple lock too) is unsustainable - and anyway why should the working be subsidising the well off and retired?

"And you expect her to get the best deal for Brexit?"

Yes, she's a hard nosed bitch.
