Tories: let pensioners freeze to death, they can't vote us out then
Smug Tories discussed letting pensioners die of cold to save cash at their Manchester conference.
The Taxypayers' Alliance, a malicious pro-Conservative think tank, wants to see older people freeze. Research director Alex Wild says Tories should immediately cut winter fuel allowance.
"Some of the people... won't be around to vote against you in the next election. So that's just a practical point, and the other point is they might have forgotten by then."
Former defence secretary Liam Fox enthusiastically echoed sentiments about cutting pensioners' benefits at the group's Tory conference meeting.
Liam Fox? Whose wealth is estimated around a million pounds? Who, we learned during the expenses scandal, claimed for his mortgage interest - as well as sums under a pound?
He once claimed 3p for a 100-yard car journey he could have walked in under a minute! He also wants to cut free travel for older people, by the way.
Yes, this same Liam Fox is saying pensioners should not be given winter fuel allowance.
Let's keep them in the cold and give them a hand in that direction, eh Liam?
I'm pretty sure your older family members can afford heating without the allowance.
Outside the millionaires' tiny, luxuriant world there's many that can't. It's a matter of life and death, especially for those with more vulnerable health.
The Socialist Party campaigns to reverse all cuts to pensions and fuel allowances. Bring the energy companies into public ownership under democratic control to stop price gouging!
