It’s kind of IRONIC that Labour, the political party that INTRODUCED universal welfare benefits, wants to END them!
Labour would cut winter fuel payments for the UK’s richest elderly people if they won the next general election, Ed Balls is due to say. It would currently affect about 600,000 people over 61 who pay higher and top income tax rates – saving about £100m.
Here’s a better idea. AXE the £14 BILLION Overseas Aid budget and DOUBLE the winter fuel benefits for ALL our elderly citizens? Balls just wants to play class war games, hoping that he can appeal to ENVY. It shows the immorality at the heart of left wing politics. They don’t CARE about people, they want to divide and conquer.
