! am another of those "frozen" 80 years of age.My years of war service,both in the Mercant and Royal Navy,being torpedoed,loosing two brothers in the services count for nothing when it comes to decisions made by allpolititions who only agree on one thing and that is when their salaries come up for increase.Probably they say "how can we give ourselves a rise if we are giving that money to those pensioners!" Hence their reluctance to bring our pensions in line with those who live in the US,Germany Etc.

Lorenzo replies: I'm ashamed to be British, we have become a nation equal to the average that is wrong with everything in the world where as we once set an example and led in many fields.

About Not Apathetic

NotApathetic was built so that people who are planning not to vote in the UK General Election on May 5th can tell the world why. We won't try to persuade you that voting is a good or a bad idea - we're just here to record and share your explanations. Whether ideological, practical or other, any reason will do.

A lot of users would like us to mention that if you spoil your ballot paper, it will be counted. So if you want to record a vote for "none of the above", you can.
