    Post I.D.S Planning to hit pensioners benefits in next election

    Just seen this and hope it sends out a warning to all pensioners. I.D.S is panning that if the conservatives get back in they are planning to target their benefits, which include free bus passes, television licences and prescriptions.

    Mr Cameron promised to protect pensioners but this now goes against what he is saying.

    "We've seen a gap growing between those in work with their [wage] rises and those in welfare. The reality is we're trying to bring that back into a balance," he said.





    Whilst the rich get tax cuts and the gap between the rich and poor grows
