It’s started, the pull back.
Well, our caring government have to recover ‘their generosity’ somehow, and how’s that? Higher taxes, austerity measures, pension and wage freezes, and no doubt more red tape and hoops as they claw back funds from those who can least afford it.
Oh it had been such a joy to be given an extra 70p a week by the government at the beginning of the new financial year.
Oh how wonderful to have a payrise in the works pension of £6 a month.
But the government have now advised that due to an increase in said works pension, Hubby’s benefit will be reduced by 14p a week…………. yes 14p a week and we don’t know why as his income is still thousands less than the personal allowance!
OK, it’s just 14p, so that’s less than £8 a year, but it’s the principle, especially as they’d already reduced his mobility allowance by £2000 a year last October.
