Broken pension promise


Name and address supplied




Before the last election Gordon Brown promised to reinstate the basic State Pension in line with average earnings, after 5yrs I’m still waiting.


I now see we are getting the same promise for 2012, why should I believe him this time.


There are many pensioners like myself who because we have a small private pension and little savings not a rich person by any means receive no state benefits, so a pension based on average earnings would come in very handy.


It would be nice if you could put this to Mr Brown or Mr Murphy and see what excuse they would come up with for not doing this in the last 5 yrs.


Mr Murphy is always on about the SNP broken promises.
