So the point is why do the 1 in 5 claim benefits when they don't need to do so.The lady on Jeremy Vine also said by giving all the £200 per week state pension the ones that already have other forms of income[private pensions etc] will pay tax on it so the government will take a proportion back. When i look scrapping the TV license for the 75's unless you are on pension credit which means if your total income could be a few quid over the limit then you have to pay the£154 means you are that amount less than the ones on credit at the stroke of a pen.Caught a little of that Jeremy Vine show this morning, the lady arguing for the case said 20% of over 65s
were millionaires, 1 in 5 ? .
This reminds me of the now state pension system[ANOTHER COCK UP] the old school had to pay in for 44 years and now get £129 the new system pay in 30 years and get£169 all the political parties agreed to this with the powers at b stating there was winners and losers ffs. I'm a loser i'm on the old system so in future i can see a lot of my generation having bus passes and fuel allowances taken away also as the ones in charge use the excuse the young generation need looking after.There is nothing quite like putting one section of the population against another but in the young ones case they must think about their future and once these benefits are taken away god help them trying to get them back in the future when they reach old age.I now end my rant for today
