How can any intelligent person accept the lies perpetrated by Iain Duncan Smith and the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP)?
O.K. The Winter Fuel Payment (instituted under Gordon Brown) was ill conceived
O.K. The WFP needs reform.
O.K. The UK Government needs to cut back on benefit fraud and waste.
Is the way to do it like this?
• To target the weak?
• To target those who cannot vote?
• To LIE – to distort the facts – the deception whereby someone knowingly makes false representation, which is fraud?
• To break EU treaty law which enables pensioners to move to the continent to get another experience in life away from overcrowded southern England where housing is so expensive. Summers are often Hot – But WINTERS can be far colder than the UK. Treaty law demands that the Pensioners abroad (over 3.5%) in the EU are treated as those still resident in the UK.
See opposite the Temperature Forecast published by the University of Maine for February 9th. Blue to dark blue areas are freezing.
Ignorance and lies brings dishonour on the Government.
A petition has been sent to the European Union Parliament– It will take years perhaps to see that justice is done and the British Government corrected.
The Statutory Instrument 2014/3270 signed by Steve Webb (Minister of State of the DWP) must be annulled.
MPs must be encouraged to sign the Early Day Motion 695 which can annul the SI 2014/3270 BEFORE the 9th February.
The EDM 695 was tabled by a few honourable MPs.
Together THIRTEEN honourable MPs have signed. Very many more are needed.
