    There are various posts on these very forums that seem to prove that certain members of the middle and higher classes think all poor people are scum and should be treated as such...

    No we don't but do you really think that launching the country into a further few years of recession is a good idea?

    Nobody is saying what Labour did was right, but the worry is that the Tories will throw out the same old routine of punishing the poor to aide the rich. Yes, the fact is, the country is screwed and something needs to be done, but in the past, this has not been done fairly and equally by the Tories, hence all the bad feeling about the impending budget

    So, public sector pay freeze for 2 years, except for those on less than £21k per year. Those on less than £21k will receive £250 increase for the 2 'frozen' years.

    State pension age will increase to 66 at some point, and public sector pensions are going to be investigated by Hutton with a preliminary report by Sept.
