Policies will leave pensioners cold
A SOBERING thought in as much we tend to live longer!
We become a drain on the Government (even though we might have paid for it) in Pensions etc.
We must also bear in mind this coalition has only promised us OAPs the bus pass and winter fuel allowance until 2015.
Forget the likes of Cameron and Co, all these come from families with money, so a bus pass or fuel to keep warm in winter does not apply.

With the keen-ness of this coalition to cut everything that is humanly possible in their reign to show that they cut/cleared the national debt, the removal of the bus pass and the fuel allowance would be nothing – in fact it could be an answer.
Well take into consideration the fact that even with the fuel allowance, it saw the death's of 23,000 last year.
So if you take that into consideration, just how many would fail to see a winter through without that safety net?
As for the bus pass, well that is no more free rides and pensioners facing their end of years in some flat or home with very little to look forward to in the way of social life and longevity.
So all in all not a very nice prospect to look forward to, being confined with the chance of freezing to death.
Could Mr Cameron and Co have found a legal way to cut costs and save money? You decide, black as it is.
Also, in the past we saw the Government down grade our pensions and link them to the much lower rate of inflation, so we received less each year. Now Osborne is on the move to once again reduce the value of pensions to the common worker all over the country.
Meanwhile this vulture has seen fit to make sure changes do not affect the pensions of so called serving members of Parliament.
This action only confirms to me that Britain has a two tier class system, with some who only see fit to look after themselves.
It is estimated there will be a reduction of around 20 per cent in pensions, a reduction when we continue to see rises in food prices and utility bills. Actual living today is already a problem for some, yet the likes of Cameron, Clegg those at the top of the food chain, are yet to feel the pinch.
'All in this together' has to be one of the biggest cons ever on the general public.
Third world Country? we seem to be knocking on the door! very loudly. When it opens, what then?
The situation the Greeks find themselves in with protests and riots.
