Cut number of MPs and put savings into pensions
ARE we about to see a "grey revolution"?
We senior citizens outnumber any other type of voter. We should wake up to the fact that, collectively, we have the power to change legislation and even governments.
Unfortunately for us, and a blessing to the three political parties, we will never get together collectively because we are still tribal and vote as a tribe.
The result of this is that, for decades, we have been taken for granted and our tribal loyalty has been abused, leaving us with a pittance of a pension.

We only have ourselves to blame because we believe the lip service that they give us. We have paid our dues all our lives and how have they managed them? Certainly not invested them to cover our future pension needs.
Now we are not wanted. We are a drain on the country's finances and the NHS.
So let's have a look at the MPs who claim to work for us, to represent our wishes. More lip service because they too vote along party lines.
These MPs, with their gold-plated pensions, civil service government benefits, free health care, outrageous retirement packages. Now they are asking for a pay rise.
They had a pay rise in 2010 and are now on a minimum of £65,738 plus expenses. Compare that with our £107.45 per week and no expenses, some of us getting less than this.
Now they want us to stay in the EU. OK, that's fine.
We all know now that all they do, apart from the charade of shouting at each other across the chamber, is rubber-stamp the orders they receive from Brussels.
So the big question is – do we need 650 MPs to do this? No! All we need is one MP for each geographical county and that's 48. The salaries and expenses saved could go then towards paying our pension. Yes!
