Our pension increase is small change for MEPs
FOR those of us who are watching the continued rise in food prices, I can't wait till April 2013.
This is when pensioners get their increase – sorry yes, I did say increase, but I believe some of us are looking at the huge and magnificent sum of £2.68. I can't wait to see what I can afford to spend it on.
However, I see the Euro MPs are looking at a possible increase of 40 per cent.
One can see from this why the likes of Neil Kinnock is so set against an in/out referendum in view of this golden egg. One could only wonder if this is the reason why certain other MPs have ambitions to further their role in Europe and veto any referendum.

Mind you the figure of £90,000 a year is not to be sneezed at, that is if they drop the expenses scheme (scam) now in operation – £90,000 a year, wow!
I can only guess at what that retirement pension would be, but what I do know is it won't be the miserable pence that some of us now get.
