State pension - We paid in as agreed, we want paid out as was promised

The government has proposed to introduce a flat rate State Pension from April 2016 and raise the State Pension age from 66 to 67 gradually between 2026 and 2028 and then to 69 by the 2040s.

Parliament still have to agree these changes.

Yet we will pay £40bn to the EU each year and our Foreign Aid budget for 2014 is £12.162bn.

Britain is the second largest donor of aid in the world. This is wrong when so many people in the UK are facing unemployment and austerity. This government should be putting to the welfare of the British people first.

We oppose these changes and propose that anyone who has paid into the state pension fund for most of their working life is entitled to the terms they were promised at that time.

We want to be paid our State Pension at 65 as promised and to see the Additional State Pension paid to those who were previously due to receive it.

If a Private Pension Provider was to act as the government have they would be prosecuted.
