Re: Petition for a more realistic pension
If you do not have a Works Pension, the State Pension is simply not enough to live decently
Many retired people have a modest house to support and this involves upkeep and costly repairs
There is no money for holidays and new clothes either.
One one should be enjoying the later years of life they have to skimp and eat Scrag end of Mutton instead of Fillet Steak like the overfed MP's do.
Also go to bed with their clothes to keep warm to save electricity. Shameful when the Government is happy to spend £billions on Foreign Aid, much of it wasted and going to the wrong people
Other Countries are far more generous to their Senior Citizens and treat them with the respect that they deserve.
