Frozen Pensions raised during Queens Speech debate
May 16, 2022 Frozen British Pensions 3 Comments
Today, Carol Monaghan, SNP MP for Glasgow North West, raised the injustice of the UK Government’s frozen pensions policy during the Queens Speech: Making Britain the Best Place to grow up and grow old debate.
This unfair policy leaves many British pensioners who live overseas facing poverty in their retirement. She raised Canada’s previous attempt to negotiate a reciprocal agreement to cover state pension uprating, which the UK Government refused to enter into discussions about.

Reality of British Justice!!!!
550000 British fully paid up cotributions pensioners deprived of indexed linked contracted pensions representing 100 pounds weekly loss.
This surely is NI contract breach for affected state pensioners who cotunue to pay UK taxes but place no service burden on UK services etc.
If basic contract law be applied to this long standing scenario then the the British government would surely be in breach of NI contract.

When words of reason fail, then action often speaks louder.Consider the mobilisztion of all those approx 1million paid up but clearly cheated British pensioners to return to UK and exsert right of services then this may alert /remind the intransigent UK government of the extent to which its current avoidance of due diligence and liability towards NI contract to safeguard fully paid up NI pensioner, wherever they may choose to reside
Government by Dark Age Tyranny continues.But at what social cost???
