Old people auctioned off to care homes on the internet: Anger over ‘cattle markets for grannies’ as councils accept lowest bids to save cash | Daily Mail Online.

The elderly and disabled are being ‘put up for auction’ by local councils on ‘eBay-style’ websites, with care firms then bidding to offer them a bed.

At least a dozen local authorities are listing vulnerable people’s details – including their age and what care and medication they need – before inviting bids from care homes in the area.

The bidding is sometimes open for only a few hours, at other times it can last for two or three days. The cheapest offer often wins.

we are just pieces of meat to be process by these “people” ….this is a disgrace
