Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings ...

I recently received this in an email from a friend. It made me take a little time to think about it since I qualify for the Old Age Pension in October. A little research turned up the fact that these figures are accurate, though they also represent the "top end" of the picture and there are a number of shades in between...

This makes you wonder what will be left for our kids - NOT A LOT!!!!!

OH BRITAIN , where did we go wrong ?

We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc. Are you aware of the following?

The British Government provides the following financial assistance: -

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Weekly allowance 106

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS / REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Weekly allowance £250

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Weekly Spouse allowance £25

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS / REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Weekly Spouse allowance £225

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Additional weekly hardship allowance £0.00

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS / REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Additional weekly hardship allowance £100

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £6,000

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS / REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £29,900

Please read all and then forward to all your contacts so that we can lobby for a decent state pension.

After all, the average pensioner has paid taxes and contributed to the growth of this country for the last 40 to 60 years.

Sad isn't it?


Welcome to the Britain created by our wonderful "socialist" leaders. You can bet they have far better pensions lined up. When I "qualify" for the OAP in October, but I will get slightly less than half the figure quoted here since I contributed for only 25 years and not 40. OK, fair do I reckon, but thanks to Gordon Brown, I also now pay 20% tax on a pension from the CPS (Instead of the 10% the previous government - Conservative! - considered fair) that is under 10k a year, and the 78 pounds a week I will get from the OAP fund will be swallowed in tax because of the 20% base rate when added to my existing pension. Of course, Gordon Brown said that "no one would lose out" when he doubled the tax rate, adding that he was "giving a new 'benefit' to those in 'poverty.'" Except that only those with young children and already on Income Support qualify for it ... Guess what, people like me, don't and nor do the vast majority of Old Age Pensioners. And, to add insult to injury here, a recent report by a "Think Tank" declares that OAPs are a "drain on the NHS" and should be forced to pay the full cost of the services they use.

Yup, it's a good feeling having contributed and worked my butt off while watching Blair and Co welcome all comers from every third world tip with handouts and assistance while at the same time telling me (and the rest of us!) how much we owed it to these freeloaders and must "adopt their cultures and values" because Britain's were so "something-ist."

Yup, its a scandal, but the politicians and civil servants don't care - we aren't a big enough voting block anymore and the immigrants are.
