Pensioners will need a bigger rise

I see the amount of increase pensioners are going to get from April has been announced.

But they will need at least treble the £4.50 a week increase, and that would just about cope with the rises following our government’s man- made climate change levies.

That will increase our living costs right across the board. We also cannot forget the EU’s bailout of the euro which our taxes fund and the EU’s new foreign office which likewise needs our taxes.
