Oh *** smartyknickers are you another one posting from Conservative Central office? Please explain why our pension is the second lowest in ALL the European Union? Are we second poorest nation in Europe? No. Because the wealth is slowly but surely being transferred into the hands of a few who either do not pay any tax, pay very little tax, or do not think that should pay tax. Misery and penury and early death for British pensioners, vs. flaunted wealth for the cabinet and the Bernie Ecclestones ( to name one).
