Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister of UK Government
The British Government is using unscientific methods and dodgy data to discriminate against its pensioners who live out their retirement in mainland Europe because many cannot afford to live any longer in the UK. The Government intend to take away the winter fuel allowance claiming that it is much warmer there in winter than in certain parts of the UK. They know that many people living in Mainland Europe suffer bitter cold winters often colder than the UK they but continue to use the politics of envy to attract cheap future election votes from anybody they can by distorting the truth about these pensioners financial means or ability to affords extra heating.
In truth by usung these tactics and disenfranchising pensioners to vote they are alienating the very people who have paid into the welfare system over the past 40-50 years.-
We want full parliamentary representation in the UK and the right to vote fully restored for all General elections, European elections and Referendums. We the pensioners were sold the idea of the Common Market (EU) with promises of complete freedom to live and work anywhere in the European Union. Now we are being punished for doing just that. Please remember that todays children are tomorrows pensioners. What they can get away with doing to us now - they will do it to you tomorrow.
The Government is guilty of unimaginable bullying and the only way to stop them is to fight back. Of course, many of our number are old and fragile so please, whatever your age please support us with your vote. Thank you.
