The same when the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond. 'Spreadshitsheet Phil raised National Insurance contributions against their manifesto. All part of the austerity that stopped long ago which never really stopped. Another propaganda success.

But Theresa May declared Austerity dead didn't she? My daughter can't get any sick pay, the government says that the fact she owns her house means she has savings and should spend them. Austerity is alive and well below a certain income level.....

I remember my Canadian friend explaining that their system was 'when you have used up ALL your assets including your house come to us and we will see what we can do'. Quite right too were hear people mumble. But experience has shown its cheaper to help people get over minor difficulties and get them back on track quickly than it is to lift the out of the abyss the system pushed them into. Can't have any of that leftish Marxist Commie stuff can we???

Stanley's post is more about benefits than pensions. Its a bit short term of the govt, without going into all the potential detail, if everyone is in rented accommodation, some of that (if qualifying) is paid by the state if sick as housing benefit. Unless you have mortgage interest home owners dont get this support, and have to fund the necessary repairs too. the Govt get money back in the form of stamp duty, VAT on transactions etc when houses are sold therefore the govt is saving money on homeowners and should not be attempting to claw back, as an alternative to say families inheriting is that they will end up homeless, with big housing benefit claims going to the investors that can afford to buy such homes. Quite simply, where do you want the subsidy - to the sick , or to the rich?

Announced today:

Andrew Gwynne MP

Labour MP for Denton & Reddish (inc Audenshaw, Dukinfield, Heaton Chapel & Heaton Norris)

The first piece of good news in a long time for the 1950s-born ladies who were affected by the state pension changes (not once but twice). Today the Ombudsman has finally reported. The verdict is there WAS maladministration by DWP.
The Ombudsman will now assess the scale of injustice and make further recommendations to Ministers on how to rectify that failure.
I am proud to have always stood by the #1950sWomen and always will! 🐝
