  1. Petition for an increase in war pensions and servi

    Hi folks I have started a petition for a greater increase for all Veteran's in their pensions and allowances through No 10. If you would like to support the petition please go to this link.

    I'm sure a lot of you out there on a War Pension and Service Pensions will greatly need a big increase in your pensions. The small rises given to us over the years have been taken back by very large increases of Stealth Taxes and bringing our pensions well below that the law says we need to live on.Pass it on to fellow ex-service personnel and hopefully we might get a long awaited increase.

    I ask the governement to increase the war pension and allowances to an amount that the law says that we need to live on.Repeated rises in council taxes, rents,water and sewerage, heating and lighting charges have in effect taken away any meagre rises that this government gives us.Ex-service personnel must be made a special case for a large increase as they have given this country a very large amount of their loyalty and devotion to duty.

    Many Thanks for your support folks

    What are you on about? We all have an interest in this for obvious reasons. I cannot see why that procludes us/you from signing.

    Is it because it will show up on Central Offices computers and get you into trouble? 8O
  14. Your first point is my point. Any serviceman or ex serviceman signing this petition would be as bad as MPs voting for their pension increases
