Old deserve better times

What planet does Charles Napier live on saying there is no such thing as a poor pensioner?

I am disgusted by his comments. These so-called rich pensioners have worked all their lives to earn the right to receive a pension and I for one don’t begrudge them having a few perks. I have a few customers (I’m a self employed gardener) that are struggling with heating their one-bedroom bungalows.

Some of these pensioners have lived their lives working in coal mines and suffered the hardship of rations books and the three-day working week of the 1970s.

In my opinion they deserve everything they get as they reach the autumn of their lives.
