Re-link the UK's State pension with earnings or inflation, whichever the greater.

Re-link the UK's State pension with earnings or inflation, whichever the greater.

Increase Britain's State pension substantially, and re- linked directly to male average earnings or inflation whichever the higher.

Why is this important?

It’s important because if it had not been for our War veterans, none of us would be here today.
People should support my petition because we should respect our elderly people. And we should fight on their behalf.
I started my petition because Britain's elderly people have been forgotten.
If enough people sign, Parliament will be forced to discuss the issue and put it on the media spotlight.

Reasons for signing

  • Yes to generous unconditional full basic state pensions, but above that (& a quarter /a fifth in earning/tax allowance), they should be clawed back by tax on income[& on Land], so that those on higher income[& in high rental revenue property/Land estates] pay their way if they have more than the majority for those in the bottom half to b net receivers of the help they need.
  • The way the elderly are treated in this country is a national disgrace. Many fought in the Second World War there blood was good enough it is long overdue that the elderly were treated with respect
  • Pensioners deserve to be able to live not scrape by
