Someone did who was against pensioners getting a rise when I mentioned £7k is abysmal per year for a pension. They then said they get other top ups if for housing, etc if they rent
Why does the choice need to be one or the other?
Why can't pensioners get a rise? Coronavirus has killed off a lot of them in care homes so the government have likely saved themselves a chunk of money right there.
It was me, I see no reason why pensions should be treated different to working age people who cannot work, especially when it involves getting many multiples of inflation at a time, when the government is facing chaos. In all honestly it boggles my mind, with everything going on why someone has in their mind "I want more money" we have far bigger problems than money at the moment. We could be having several million more people added to the DWP list in the next year or so, think about that. The same people asking for these pension increases may be the one's constantly telling people the reason they wont vote labour because the books have to be balanced, does that financial rule get discarded when it comes to the pension bill?
