Retired British ex pats like myself who paid into the National insurance at full stamp for 47 years are totally disgusted with the British policy of frozen pensions. I was in the British armed forces for 30 years 5 of which were in active service & I have the medal to prove it. It’s the old mind over matter thing, they don’t mind & WE don’t matter. I came to Cambodia as a volunteer English/music teacher it’s where I met my amazing Khmer wife & where I will die. WE take nothing from the National health service or any of the other benefits that we maybe entitled to. The only thing we do take is what we paid for all our working lives, OUR STATE PENSION! Now do what’s right & unfreeze our pensions😠
