Pensioners treated like dirt

Once again it emerges that our pensioners are being treated like dirt by the Nu Labour regime. More 900,000 pensioners can’t even afford the necessities of living thanks to Labour. This includes heating their home. Almost 1 million are unable to do even that.

In addition, more than 800,000 pensioners lack household appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines, according to research by the retirement finance and property specialist Homewise.

When it comes to healthcare you can forget about it especially if you are disabled. Well you can if the experiences of Evelyn Beale are anything to go by. She was forced to spend the night on a park bench after she was discharged at 2.45am after being given the choice of being arrested or being discharged. She had no money and no way of getting home. She couldn’t even walk far because of her disability

"I worked from the age of 13 and paid into the NHS and this is how I'm treated. It's appalling. I thought things would get better with this Government and they just get worse.

Thankfully she won’t be voting Labour again. She can see things are becoming worse.
