    If labour really want to get in they need to...

    ...Restore the state pension age to below 66.
    It was altered from 60 for women and 65 for men.
    It can't be different for discrimination reasons, so it could be put at 63 as a compromise.
    I Labour have a large pot to spend, they need to undo the damage done by NuLabour and grab the pensioners vote.
    NuLabour stole nearly 50,000 from my wife and 8,000 from me.

    Labour should also say that all healthcare will be free, including eyecare, spectacles and dentistry.
    Then we might believe they are back to being socialists?

    George Osborne stole 6 years retirement from my wife, she had to retire for health reasons last year. I suspect she will have been robbed of of around 30000 plus by the time she reaches 66.

    Perhaps Jezza could get that paid back as well.

    That would not get her savings back.

    I just thought while Labour were promising the world and free healthcare, ice cream for students, free school meals, they might overturn the pension robbery of a previous labour government, which robbed pensioners.

    I doubt there is anything that Jezza could offer me to get me to vote red. Not with him at the helm of Britannia.

    Well I wouldn't or rather couldn't even begin to add up my losses since we were flooded with cheap labour which resulted in wage compression in the construction industry . All colours of political party were complicit in that though it was of course new Labour and 'we only expect 20000 in the first year ' that started it .

    But hey we have all taken (well everyone but the Major ) a hit in recent years in one way or another . Best just roll with the punches and look forward to the future
